In a letter to the Commissioner of Pensions, James tells us about when his sister, Margaret died.
JAMES DARRY to the Commissioner of Pensions, Washington, D.C.
Letter stating that the family record kept by my father was, at his death about 1875-76 (sic- Jacob Derry died in 1877), left with my oldest sister, at whose residence he died at the age of 86 years. My sister also died about 1893. Her son, who lives on the old home place of his mother, says he cannot find the said family record. Now my only means of knowing my age is my recollection of what my father and mother taught me as I grew up, that I was born in 1835 on May 5th. My P.O. address is Philadelphia, MO.
