Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Dudley (b. abt 1851, Ohio) is shown living with the family in 1880. The listing for Dudley identifies him as Dorwin's brother and the last name is shown as Higley. However, his parents are recorded as being from Ohio, matching Arabella, not Dorwin.

Dorwin's name is spelled Darwin in the 1860 U.S. Census.
