Town of Darlington 1800's

Does anyone have any information about a town that existed in Rutherford County sometime in the 1800's - I believe the town was named Darlington. The story I have is that it was named after a much loved school teacher in the town who had the last name of Darling. The town was in the area where Gilkey is now. I know that in the town there was a grist mill, a stage coach stop and a general store/post office.

Thanks very much!
