David Darden sons William, Henry, and Jess

Looking for info on a David Darden. His wife was named maybe Merlie Killer? I can't really read the handwriting on his son's death certificate.

He had 3 sons that I know of: Jess, Henry, and William Columbus. William Columbus Darden was born Feb 21 1860 in Springfield MO and died Aug 2 1921 in Wayne County, MO. Jess was also born in Springfield in 1850 and died in Wayne County in 1927. Henry was born in 1847 in Tennessee and died in Wayne county, Missouri. I'm not sure where their father David was born. All of the death certificates say "unknown".

It's possible that David Darden lived in Tennesse, moved to Springfield, where his 2 younger sons were born, and then his sons later had families and died in Wayne county, Missouri. David Darden (I'm guessing by the dates of his sons birth) was probably born around the 1820s.

William Columbus Darden was married to Alice Jane Pennington. Their children were Roy, Jacob Andrew, Henry, Ernest, Zell, Grace, and Pearl. Jacob Andrew married Louisa Elizabeth Pruitt and had James Andrew (born 1939), Hazel (maried Dalpha "Mutt" Gentles), Judy (married Roy Robertson, and had Chrissy, Dale and Andy), Myra (married Owen Brawley), Elmer, Ray (married O'Cleta), May (married Henry Clemens).

There are a lot of Dardens in Wayne County, but past David Darden, I can't trace my Darden genealogy. Any help would be much appreciated. Sorry I don't know more details.
