Although the headstone reads 1836 as her date of birth, records indicate she was born ca 1818 in Kentucky. If she had been born in 1836, she could not have given birth to children the same age as she was. See 1850 census below.

Parents: Isaac Darneille, b. 1789, Harrodsburg, Mercer Co., KY, m. ca 1810 Harrodsburg, Mercer Co., KY, d. 1874. and Catherine Vallandigham, b. ca 1790, Harrodsburg, Mercer Co., KY, d. unknown.

Amanda was the sister of Anderson Hugh Darneille who is buried in the Missouri Flat Cemetery, Jackson Co., Oregon. He trekked to the Oregon Territory in 1853 with his wife and children from his home in Indiana.

Death has claimed our Mother,
Set his seal upon her brow,
But her sleep is sweet in Jesus,
And she sings with angels now.
