Birth Notes: Husband - Solomon William ARMSTRONG
=================================================================================================

The 1850 Census says he was born in Virginia and the 1870 says Kentucky.

=================================================================================================
General Notes: Husband - Solomon William ARMSTRONG
=================================================================================================

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

He was born in Virginia or Kentucky.

   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."

My Notes
=================================================================================================

If there is no SOURCE, I have no PROOF! If the source is a PERSON, the information is HEARSAY!

Most of the Smith County Armstrongs moved on to Navarro County and settled in the Corsicana area.
Elizabeth was deaf and dumb and might have been retarded but her mental state was typical of deaf
children who were never able to learn in the normal fashion. In 1860, she is living with Jackson
and his wife. In 1870, she is with William Warfield and family. In 1880, Elizabeth is living with
Haywood McCarley and her niece Lucy, daughter of William. I found no death record for her

This is my weak link in the Armstrong line. I have no proof that my Solomon is the son of this
William.
