In a book "Early Families of Eastern and Southeastern Kentucky", the Salyer family of Johnson and Magoffin County started in this country with Benjamin K. Salyer,a French Huguenot who settled near Charleston,South Carolina around 1700.He was a wealthy planter who acquired land in North Carolina also. He died at Guilford Court House colony in 1754.Two of his sons were Benjamin Salyer Jr., b 1730 and Zachariah Salyer. Benjamin served in the Revolutionary War with Greene and Zachariah served with Washington at Valley Forge. This book is old and I have the title but don't have publisher's info in my file. If you would like I will get the info for you at my library. There are several pages on the Salyer families.You might be able to get it at your local library.

If his dob was 1760, that would have made him 16-17 at the time he served during the winter of 1776-7. Not an unlikely age for that time period. I will go to my local library tomorrow and get the info on the book for you. If your library doesn't have it, perhaps you can do an interlibrary loan.Once you get the book, you will notice there is a Zachariah in practically every generation and branch of the family. But that's the way it usually is<g>.Till tomorrow.

Dear Rosetta,
thanks for the info. the Zachariah Salyer I was talking about was in 1765 not 60. He would have been to young to be a soldier. born in 1765-1845 in Johnson Co. just 16 when the war ended in 1781. wasn't there a Zachariah Sr. born 1730-1789 in South or North Carolina. my papers say that. or was he Benjamin? look forward to your reply.

sincerely,
Mark

Mark, I have an Elizabeth Dunn m Zachariah Benjamin in 1751 in NC. This is my line.Their son was Zachariah Benjamin Jr, his son was Joseph Solomon and his daughter was Nancy Salyer who m Henry Osburn.Their son Jonathan m Rutha Middleton and by that time the family had moved from Johnson Co.,Ky to Arkansas. Don't know if you can buy the book since the last publish date was 1979. You should try the loan process, it has always worked great for me.Blessings.
