Darby, Samuel (b. 1752, d. 21 JUL 1850)
Note: 17. SAMUEL D.8 DARBY (SAMUEL7, WILLIAM6, WILLIAM5, JOHN DERBY4 (DARBY), CHRISTOPHER3 DERBY, NICHOLAS2, ROBERT1) was born 1752 in Essex County, New Jersey, and died July 21, 1850 in Preston County, West Virginia. He married HANNAH OWEN 1799, daughter of JOHN OWEN and SARAH SAYRE. She was born 1760 in Scotch Plains, Union County, New Jersey, and died November 19, 1850 in Hopewell, Monongahola, West Virginia.

Notes for SAMUEL D. DARBY:
He served as a Private in the Revolutionary War in Captain William Garthwait's Company, Col. Edward Thomas' 1st Regiment, Essex County, New Jersey Militia in 1776. The Ordinance of August 11, 1776 detached one -half of the militia to join the Flying Camp and authorized the finding of men refusing to serve. Pursuant to this ordinance, Captain Garthwait, on October 24, 1776, ordered the sergeants of his Company to make sale of the goods belonging to the Privates of the Company to the value of 3 pounds. Samuel D. appears to have refused the service required as his name is included on this list. In July of 1777, in Essex County, he received pay for boarding (pursing, etc.) one Benjamin Conkling, who had been wounded in an engagement at Westfield; he also received certificates from the Quarter-master General's Department for pasturing, carting, etc. There are indication the family received rough treatment from British soldiers during this period of the war. Between 1774 and 17847, he removed from Elizabeth, New Jersey to Pennsylvania, perhaps remaining for a while enroute at Bottle Hill (now Madison), New Jersey, where perhaps it was he, on May 24, 1780, who offered a reward for the return of a house, strayed or stolen. About 1784 or 1800, he arrived in West Virginia (then Virginia) with his family and in the company of one Benjamin Trembly. Perhaps he settled on a farm in the vicinity of Hopewell, Preston (then Monongalia) County, or perhaps he settled on a farm known as Miller Place near Clifton Mills, same county. At the time of his arrival, then was a general resumption of hostilities with the Indians, making it necessary to fort against them; Old Fort Morris, in 1774, was located in the "Sandy Creek Glades" on land belonging to one Richard Morris, a stockade fort, it provided safety for residents of Washinton County, Pennsylvania, as well as those living near Morgantown. Samuel D. is recorded as doing much toward establishing a favorable condition of affairs in the county. In 1796, he is recorded as being a witness to the will of James McCollum. Samuel D. died in Preston County and he is buried with his wife in a farm cemetery on a high hill along Candy Creek; the crude grave stones, located in the midst of crab apple thicket were still readable in the 1930's.

About 1800, Samuel Darby came from New Jersey to the vicinity of Hopewell. Samuel Darby made application for a Revolutionary War Pension in Preston County (No. R. 13662), but was rejected. Samuel Darby settled around January 1818 near the site of Clifton Mills, now Preston County West Virginia.
