Solomon Yeager of White Co., Tenn., was pensioned 2/28/1833 for service in Revolution as a Private in Va. line.
Some data are supplied by Edwin Yeager, Terre Haute, Ind.
There is some difference in the numbers and names of Solomon's children.
Edwin lists: Daniel, Joel, Nicholas, Benjamin, James, Solomon, Polly, Eliza, Elias, Susan, and Girl(name unknown). This leaves Mary, Abigail and Elizabeth unless his Polly is Mary and Girl is Abigail or Elizabeth.
His list then remains one short from Keith's.
Data supplied by Richard YEAGER, Bothell, WA, and based on the estate settlement of Solomon YEAGER in White Co., TN, lists the following children:
Daniel, Joel, Nicholas, Benjamin, James, Solomon, Mary (Polly), Eliza, Elias, Susanna, and Abigail.
"An Early History of the Piety Family and Kinsmen" by Charles R. Piety (preface date November, 1956) states that Solomon and Elizabeth were the parents of sixteen children: Solomon, Benjamin, Nicholas, Elias, Daniel, Joel, James, Eliza, Susan, Polly, Abigail and five others dying in infancy. Also lists Solomon's second wife as Phoebe HAMILTON. Also gives year of birth as 1736, death as Oct. 24, 1837, Elizabeth dying in 1845, and Solomon marrying Phoebe HAMILTON (age 45) on Dec. 14, 1848. Obviously, there is a problem with dates, since Solomon would have been born 1 year after his father.
CENSUS:1850 White Co., TN, Dist. 11 lists Solomon YEAGER age 90, Pheeby YEAGER age 45, Milley HAMLIN age 65, and Thomas HAMLIN age 32, all born VA.
