John Madison Darr and friend

John Madison Darr, holding the banjo, was born in 1845 and died in 1896. He spent his entire life in Webster County. Beverly Cameron believes he is the son of Dorrell Darr and Martha Price.

John Madison Darr married Nancy Ellen Curneal, the daughter of Washington Curneal and Asenith W. Ashlock, in 1868 Webster County.

Their children were George Price Darr (1869-1949); Sarah F. Darr, b 1871; Benjamin Darr, b 1874, d in Missouri; Pernesa Belle Darr (1877-1965); John Thomas Darr (1887-1950); Charles Herman Darr (1889-1974); Clyde M. Darr (1891-1901); Thomas S. Darr (1893-1919); Luther Darrell Darr (1894-1988).

Beverly Cameron would love to know who is the man in the picture with John Madison Darr, who was known as quite a banjo player.
