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).

Your memorials... wow!
Hello Robert,

I was doing some research and I came upon some of your memorials (for example 61772831) and I am extremely impressed at how thoroughly you document and reference links in your memorial bios.

I just wanted you to know that your work does not go unnoticed!

Thanks for all you do!

James Harvey Sharp; #58857431
I am hoping that you can help me with a death date for Eliza Frances Hooper Sharp. Since you had linked a son, Harvey, to them before any information had been added to their memorial, I am thinking you know something we don't. Their headstone is devoid of information except for their rather common names. Last night I found an obit for the father, Thomas, giving a list of the surviving family (including Harvey). His "aged wife" is alive at that time. Since I haven't found a death record for Eliza, I am going to try to search for her obit, but it looks like this will be a page by page search of old papers, so I need to narrow down the death range. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Leon Herman Durst
Hello Robert,
I am trying to locate Herman Ray Durst, son of W. J. Durst or his descendants and I found that you have maintained the site for Leon Herman Durst. Can you tell me if the name Durst through the genealogies of the Darst family name had been changed to Darst and if you have spotted any relation to Herman Ray Durst? He could be in his early to mid 70's if he is still living.
Thank you for your help.

Darst Family Help
I am friends with 94 year old Earle Darst, who is alive (but not so well) and living in Coupeville, Whidbey Island, WA (where he was born in 1919). I noticed you've posted a picture of his father Glenn, so am not sure if you already have a local contact. If not...I can help you as I also live on the island and am passionate about genealogy and helping others. Oddly, I recently found that I am very distantly related to some Darsts' as well (apparently, they do get around)! Perhaps I can answer some questions (I'll check in with Earle if need be) or I can help by taking pictures of the headstones at Sunnyside Cemetery? On the Island, the Darst family married into the Barrington family (as in "Captain Barrington", who was an early pioneer here (and whose siblings were big deals in the Yukon (Gold) expeditions). Let me know if I can help. First let me mention that Earle Darst was married 4 times and has outlived all but his first wife (mother of his only child...Vivian Darst).
