Other Darr Lines
These are not my own research, but lines I found published on the Internet.
I did this when I was first starting out, so the sources are rarely noted, but I can tell you that I did most of my searching at the GenForum Darr family site, and also on Rootsweb - it shouldn't be too difficult to find the source.  In fact, the Good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, I'll do it myself one of these days.

Abraham Darr 1700 -1753/8 - Germany to Pennsylvania - children to Ohio (Darrtown)
Gaspar Tarr - Germany to US (emigrated before 1760) - potter
Gottfried Dorr(Darr) b. Prussia ~1792 - to Somerset Co, Pa
Melchior Darr 1721-1810 - Europe to Pennsylvania
A cousin says an old aunt says that our Henry Darr's father was John Henry, and his father was Melchior.  So I have done a lot of searching, but I can't make a connection.  Most of Melchior's sons went to North Carolina, which makes it difficult: our Darrs always said they were born in Pennsylvania.  The one possible (it seems to me - and only possible if you ignore the geography) connection is John Henry's son Johan Henry - but very little is known about him (online at least).
    sons of Melchior: John Henry 1748 PA - 1816 NC
                         Melchior II 1752 PA - 1833 NC
                         George
    sons of Melchior II: George Henry 1784 NC - 1854 TN
                         Melchior III 1790 NC - 1862
Christian Derr b. Berks Co., PA 1744
    Christian's son Henry 1774 - ~1850 - lived Bedford Co, PA
Christian's son Henry had 6 or more sons: Christian, John, David, George, Henry, Jacob.  In 1840 and 1850, they were all accounted for in Bedford County - except for John and Henry.  So it is possible that those two are our Wayne County Darrs.  It is interesting, too, that John Darr of Wayne County, and Christian Darr of Bedford County are both blacksmiths.  However, John Darr of Bedford has two wives listed, neither of whom is a Jane McBride.  Sigh.

"Lorentz Durr was born abt. 1746 in Germany, and his brother Johannes Durr, Sr. emigrated to the US from Germany in Nov, 1764. Likely that Lorentz came over at the same time. Johannes and Lorentz died in Weisenberg Twp, PA (Lehigh County), Lorentz after 1772. Melchior Durr was another brother of Johannes and Lorentz, born in Germany abt. 1722 and died abt 1810 (in Lynn??)"  Bll Derr- message 86, Durr GenForum - Jan 16 2000

Melchior's Will
Will Book 4, Page 392, Northampton County, PA, German File 2769. Dated 14 Oct., 1805, probated 13 May 1811. Transcribed from German.

A summary reckoning of what I, Melchior Darr, in Lynn Township, Northampton County, have given my children of my inheritance already, and what they should have after my death, as follows: namely,
My son Henrich now has received on hundred pounds in cash and goods and after my death he shall also have sixty pounds besides.
My son Melchior has received niney pounds on his inheritance and must still receive 10 pound so that he also has 100 pounds. After my death he shall also have 60 pound besides.
My son George has received his 100 pounds and his two children named Christian and Maria Barbara shall have 18 pound additional and no more, as he has his inheritance in full.
My daughter Maria (Brobst/Probst/Propst) has received only 62.7.6 and must still receive 37.12.6 of her 100 pound. After my death she shall also have an additional 60 pound besides what I will also place in her hands for the service and burial of myself and my wife.
My daughter Catharina has received 68 pound and must still receive 32 before she also has 100. After my death she shall also have an additional 60.
My daughter Creta?(Greta, Margaretha?) Barbara and her children have received their entire inheritance in full.
My daughter Barbara has received her 100 pound, and I bequeath to her or her heirs also an additional 60 pounds after my death.
This is a supplement to my testamental last will and testament. I give and bequeath to my daughter Maria all my household goods and additional property which I still have, after my death, for the care and burial which she shall do for me and my wife, and I give her a power of attorney to pay my debts with my money or property, and to distribute it to my heirs as given in the above summary reckoning and list of debts. As witness hereunto I have set my hand and seal on the 14th day of October 1805 A.D. Witnessed by: Jacob Oswald Phillip Moser (s) Melchior Derr

In the name of God, Amen, I Melker Darr of the County of Davidson and State of North Carolina being of perfect mind and memory do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament revoking all other wills heretofore made by me and do hereby will and devise and bequeath my estate in the following manner -
 First, I will and bequeath to my son Henry Darr the plantation that I bought of Wm Linn which my son Henry Darr sold to Jesse Hargrave containing seventy five acres be it the same more or less which I value at the price of three hundred and seventy five dollars. I also will him seventy eight dollars worth of property which he has already received.
 Seventhly [secondly] I will and bequeath to my son Melkar Darr the plantation whereon he now lives containing two hundred acres which I value at the price of five hundred dollars. I also will to my son Melkar Darr fifty acres of land adjoining the land above willed to said Melkar Darr that I bought of Jonathan Roberts provided that he pays to my daughter Christina Grimes the wife of Godfrey Grimes the sum of one hundred and thirteen dollars.
Thirdly I will and bequeath to my son William Darr the plantation whereon I now live containing one hundred acres and I also will to my son William Darr all my land adjoining the lands of that belonging to the heirs of Christian Lookabell dec., and John M. Smith and Philip Hedrick containing one hundred and thirty acres. I also will him my Blacksmith tools and my dresser which land and property I value at the price of five hundred dollars.
Fourthly if my son Melkar Darr does not agree to pay to my daughter Christena Grimes the sum of one hundred and thirteen dollars within three years after my decease the fifty acres of land above willed to him shall belong to my daughter Christena Grimes.
Fifthly I will and bequeath to my daughter Barbara Hedrick the wife of Jacob Hedrick the negro girl named Lucy which they have in possession at this time which I value at the price of one hundred and thirteen dollars. I further will that all the money I may possess at my decease and debts due by note or otherwise to be equally divided between my two daughters Christena Grimes and Barbara.
Seventhly I do hereby nominate and appoint my son William Darr sole executor of this my last will and testament in witness whereof I have set my hand and seal this twenty eighth day of February eighteen hundred and twenty eight.
Signed, sealed, published and declared by the said Melker Darr the testator as and for his last will and testament in the presence of us who in the presence of each other have at his request hereunto subscribed out hand as witness. Jno M. Smith, Jacob Beck
