Interesting how events coincide with one another. Not only did these three happen on one day, but Gil Roberts died on his grandmother Beulah Mae (Price) Robert's birthday.

April 30:

This day is the 272nd birthday of my 5th great grandfather, John Dargan (1749-1817). He was most likely born in Sumter District, South Carolina. John's parents were John Dargan (1726-1766) and Catherine Ann (Singleton) Dargan (1729-abt. 1808).
