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

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

He was probably 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."
