"All six women are buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Waco, Texas. They were the daughters of Abigail M. Simpson by her two husbands, Madison Mumford and Josiah Lester Darby. All were born in Louisiana. They were self-employed dressmakers. Josiah and Amanda, along with widow Celia (Mumford) Corbin and her three children, moved to Waco between 1872 and 1874. Josiah's and Amanda's death dates have not been found. The only son that we have found to have also come to Texas is Josiah and his first wife, Susannah Small's, son, Benjamin Franklin Darby who settled near Peoria, Hill County, Texas. Ben Darby was the father of Joe's grandmother, Hattie Alma (Darby) Cook. This picture belonged to Hattie Cook and is now in the possession of her daughter, Cecil Cook".
