Brian Darst believes this is the person who was part Monacan Indian and brought in the Indian blood as per tradition in the Darst family history. The Monacan Indian tribe was centered in the Amherst, Bedford, and Nelson County, VA areas -- around Lynchburg. Until 1840 this family is listed as non-white helping to support his theory. Starting in the 1840 census, they are listed as white because of a reclassification of the categories. His family lived Buckingham Co., VA in 1798 as per tax lists, in Amherst Co., VA through the 1810 census and Gallia Co. , Ohio through the 1840 census. According to the 1800 census , he had 8 children, but no records have been found giving more than 3 of his children's names. 2
