Along with his father, David, he moved his family to Rockwall in 1852. They are mentioned in a publication called "Centennial Reminiscence June 8-13, 1954 A History of Rockwall, Texas": "Solomon Fletcher with his family and father, David, moved here from Missouri in a horse-drawn wagon in 1852. David was a cooper and made the first pails and tubs for the neighbors. After they arrived one of their horses, a roguish old mare, broke out of her lot and headed back for Missouri. With a yoke she had on, she swam the Red River and was in the Indian Nation when David, who had tracked her as an Indian tracks an animal, captured and returned her to the family".
Solomon fought with the Confederate Army- Company G, 2nd Calvary.

Strangely, you are the one ancestor I feel a connection to, I guess it's because I have learned the most about you. So many questions, I would ask you.|
