Darling, Jennie (? - 1955) 

From O. T. Darling of Moses Lake, Wash., The Press had word of the death of Mrs. Jennie B. Darling, widow of Frank E. Darling, once a resident of Neillsville.  Mrs. Darling was a resident of Montesano, Wash. 

Frank E. Darling descended on his mother’s side from the original James O’Neill, founder of Neillsville.  Maria O’Neill married a Frank Darling, and one of their children was Harry F. Darling, who died July, 1953, and is  buried in the Neillsville City Cemetery. 

The maiden name of Jennie B. Darling was Burnett. The Press has consulted old-timers as to where she comes in the family tree.  The best surmise is that Frank Darling married twice and that she was the second wife.  This surmise is supported by the obituary notice in the Montesano Vidette, which says that Mrs. Darling left a step-grandson, Osman Darling of Moses Lake, and several step-grandchildren in the east. 

Frank Darling, her husband, was engaged in the shoe repair business at Montesano prior to his death in 1926.
