Albertus Darling was named an heir in the will of Russell Darling, dated 22 March 1845 in Town of Aurora, Erie Co., New York, His father explicity explains that Albertus was to receive 1/2 acre less land than any of his siblings because during his father's lifetime he had been given a half acre parcel of land on which Albertus had erected a dwelling house, where he was living at the time the will was drawn up. In his will, Russel says about the land already given, "I do hereby for the Consideration of Love and natural affection Convey in fee to him and his heirs and assigns for ever."7,8
