Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native to Zanesville, OH, I am the son of the late Dale Denver Darst and Peggy Eileen Lewis and have resided at Dallas, TX since April of 1983. I graduated from The Ohio State University in March of 1982, with a B.S. in Education.

[Derst Message Board / Gravel Hill Cemetery]

My passion for family history started the day I visited The Alamo at San Antonio back in early 1984; witness to a painted portrait of Jacob Calloway Darst, whom I later realized was a first cousin (5 generations removed).

Pauline Darst May 25, 1996
Hello, Robert I am trying to help my family research a long lost half sister. We believe Pauline had a daughter named Mary who could have some half siblings in Nebraska, Minnesota, and Colorado. Do you have access to Pauline's obituary? Ruth Palecek

Henry Reel Darst, Co. A, 86th Illinois
Dear Robert, First of all, I hope this little note finds you well. Second, I again want to Thank You for allowing me to manage the Find A Grave Memorial of Henry Reel Darst, who served in Co. A of the 86th Illinois, and to be able to write his biography.
Third, I really am hoping to see some pictures of Henry Reel Darst and get them added to his Find A Grave Memorial. Are you or have you ever been in contact with any of the Darst family members who are descended from Henry? There must be some in Minnesota and I am hoping that you can help me.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Baxter

My great great great grandparents were Francis Erwin and Nancy Jane Darst. Pretty new to all of this all in all, but thought I would drop a line and say hello!

Michael Fred Darst
Hello Robert,
Thank you for the Edits for Michael. I had to laugh when I saw the requests today because when I added Michael last night you were the first person I thought of when I added him and wondered if you possibly knew anything about him. Michael is buried beside Andrea Sue Wolf and the stones are very similar. Is Andrea his mother? There is a Michael Fred mentioned in her obituary who is her son that preceded her in death but it did not mention that his last name was Wolf or Darst.

Take care

Hello, I saw that you had added the Masonic Emblem to my Daddy's grave site. We are from the Mason, West Virginia area, which is right across the bridge from Pomeroy, Ohio. Wondering since your Mom was a Lewis, and my Mom was a Lewis if we might be related. Or could we be related through the Cartwright name. Thanks for posting this on my Daddy's grave site.
