Tilman* Darrach, 48 years old, died this date, August 14th, in 1848 due to “Hemorrhage of the Lungs” and was buried at Bethel Burying Ground. I could find no other information on Mr. Darrach. Interestingly, he died at the country home of wealthy Quaker industrialist John P. Wetherill near Phoenixville in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The Wetherill home in the city was on 13th Street between Cherry and Arch Streets. It may be that Mr. Darrach was employed by the Wetherills and suffering from a terminal illness was allowed to spend his last days outside the polluted city. Hopefully, further research will uncover more details.
*I have chosen to go with the spelling of the first name as it appears on the Cemetery Return written by the Bethel Church sexton. See below –
