General Notes: Husband -
================================================================================

I have no proof that OUR Solomon is the son of this William.

Who is this?
ARMSTRONG           WILLIAM         C     36     19N    32W       0 1875/01/13
ARMSTRONG           WILLIAM         C     31     19N    31W       0 1875/01/13
ARMSTRONG           WILLIAM         C     36     19N    32W  168.64 1875/01/13

   Solomon went to Smith Co., Texas, just south of present day Tyler, sometime
before 1850 and claimed land as his pension right for service in the War of
1812.  A family tale has it that his son, Jackson Calvin, went to work for a
man there who refused to pay him.  In an altercation over this, Solomon struck
the man with a fireplace tool.  Fearing reprisal, he left his lands to his
mentally retarded daughter, Elizabeth, asked her brother, William, to care for
her and returned to Arkansas where he settled and raised the younger children.
  Solomon died in Rogers from injuries suffered in a fall.  His son, Elijah, in
claiming his veteran's burial costs explained it as "fell, brained hisself, and
was insane til he died."

According to the 1850 census of Smith County, Solomon was born in Virginia.

He enlisted in the War of 1812 at Adair Co, KY and served as a private in
Captain Adkisson's Company. He was honorably discharged at Columbia, Adair Co,
KY in 1814.

He married Ann at Cumberland, Harlan Co, KY in 1814. They had a son, Solomon,
born in 1816 and a son, William, born in 1818, both births in KY. Another son,
Elijah, was born in Missouri. The 1850 Census has the family living in Tyler,
Smith Co, TX. Six children living with them : Elizabeth, b. 1832, MO; James, b.
1834, MO; Etta, b. 1836, MO; Jackson, b. 1838, MO; Edmund, b. 1842, AR; and
John, b. 1844, AR.

In 1857, Solomon and Ann left their children in Tyler and went by horseback to
Bentonville, Benton Co, AR, where they lived with their son, William, until
their deaths. Ann died first. Solomon died at age 89 on July 26, 1879 following
injuries received in a fall.

Solomon and Anna are listed from 1852-1855 in the Roll Books of the Seven
Leagues Church. "Seven Leagues, Texas and the Baptist Church of Christ at Seven
Leagues.  Located near present-day Noonday not far from the Neches River in
southwestern Smith County.  This article submitted by Wilma Thedford comes from
a book belonging to Lois Cambern Marsh, 2200 Evergreen, Pampa, TX 79065,
entitled "They Came to Stay."  Lois March, the author of this book, was a
descendant of the Kutch and Cambern families.  The Seven Leagues Society was a
member of the Jacksonville Circuit, Tyler District, Methodist Episcopal Church
South, East Texas Conference.  All names copied according to the clerk's
spelling."
