Would love a copy of the obituary. Yes it is plausible that William Darius Ferris's date of birth is wrong. This only means he died at a much younger age than we previously thought. I do have documentation where he was in Florida in 1841- "A Major Cornelius Taylor came to Florida to fight the Seminoles and married Katherine Floyd, an heir to the Dewees grant. In 1841 they sold some property to David L. Palmer and Darius Ferris. Palmer and Ferris laid out the town of Mayport."

If we are on the right track then I have found a brand new family and a new fourth great grandfather-Comstock. That would be fantastic. I just wish there were more records confirming this to be the correct information.

Thank you so much for the information you have supplied to me. If you stumble across anything else please feel free to send it to me via email at
