Winchester Happenings

Marvin Gill says so many people have asked about Daisy that he wants them to know she is slowly improving but it is a slow process. She enjoys having visitors even though she usually cries. She is able to eat now and enjoys her cards. Continue to keep her in your prayers.

Steve Darby continues to be in the critical care unit at U.C. Hospital. He continues to have complications as a result of his car accident last week and would be appreciative of our prayers.

Keri Kendall is having surgery this week to repair the damage from her skiing accident. Mike Harper is also having surgery this week. Please say a little extra prayers for them and their families.

All the Edminsten babies are now home and Steve reports they are on three hour shifts for diaper changes and feedings. They are doing well and I am sure the parents are getting plenty of sleep.

Congratulations to the Winchester Police Department for their recent “drug bust.” The problems related to drugs are definitely overwhelming but perhaps we can make a change one event at a time. We have a police department and local churches working on some solutions. We have lost too many young people to drug overdose and until we stop the supply nothing is going to change. We also have individuals in our community who are trying to impact change and I hope to include information to encourage more of us to get involved.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): The next child of John M. and Mary Darlinton was Harvey A. born in 1828. He married Margaret Downey the daughter of Bazel and Elizabeth Reese Downey. She was born in 1835 and was a sister of Attorney Thomas Downey. They had two children, Ann Elizabeth who died in 1899 and Meridith Ellsworth. Harvey is the first one to use the spelling of Darlington. Harvey died in 1886 and was buried at Cherry Fork. Margaret lived with Ellsworth in Winchester where in 1900 he was a clerk in a dry goods store. He married Virginia Taylor in 1906 and in 1910 he was a clerk for an insurance company. Margaret died in 1915 and Ellsworth and Virginia moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma where he was selling real estate in 1920. He died in 1926 and was brought back to Cherry Fork for burial. Virginia was much younger than he was and lived until 1958. Her father John died 1913 and is buried here but her mother Harriet moved to Tulsa and lived with her.

Information is due by Sunday evening and can be sent by calling 937-695-9977 (leave a message) or by email @ japorter45697@gmail.com.
