The following is taken from the Fox History, by Ezel Fox:
On the 6th day of October, 1952, I was in Marshall, Harrison County, TX, to check the county records for information on the Fox and Darden families. I had previously corresponded with Mrs. Virginia Dyke, nee Parchman, whose great-grandmother was Virginia Darden. She is of the opinion that Virginia and Jane Darden were sisters, but had no information about the family.
Mrs. J. K. Bivins, nee Viola Cobb, whose mother was Susan Virginia Darden, gives us some information about the family in her book "Memoirs" which I quote:
"My mother Susan Virginia Darden Cobb, was the daughter of Hezekial and Mahala Fiser Darden."
"In February, 1849. with his bride (she is referring to William Frederick and Susan Virginia Darden Cobb) of a few days and two brothers-in -law, John Moulton and Jake Darden and their brides, he joined a large caravan consisting of fifty or more covered wagons bound for the gold fields of California. The companion couples of fellow pioneers, the Jake Dardens and John Moultons, remained in the new country about two years before they wer obsessed with a yearning to return to the haunts of their childhood and their native state."
