If this is the Samual that was born in 1801 in S.C., then he is my great great grandfather.

Waldo married Hazel Combs. they had 2 sons but one died when he was 2 days old. the other is my father arna dale salyer. we live in kansas so it is very hard for my to find anyone with info on my family. well if you have anything close to mine. let me know. e-mail. me at aksalyer@hotmail.com thanks.

Hi Amy,
My husbands mother Beulah (SALYER) VANCE was sister to your grandfather Woodrow SALYER. I am sorry about the death of your grandmother Irene.
We just returned from Ky last night and got to visit with Woodrow and go the the Reed cemetery and visit Irene's grave.
I have worked on genealogy for many years but have not done much on the SALYER name. I decided to start working on it, that is how I found your message.
Your granddad told me he has a book on the SALYER genealogy, so you may want to talk to him. I will be seeing him in Sept, to look at the book he has, and get some more information, I will be happy to let you know anything I find out.
I do know that Samuel SALYER is buried in a cemetery behind the Carpender home on Vance fork. If I find the stone I will be glad to send a picture.
Happy hunting, keep in touch

Amy,
Here is information I found on University of Ky site. I thought you might be interested in it.http://www.uky.edu/KentuckyAtlas/ky-salyersville.html
Salyersville, the seat of Magoffin county, is located on the Licking River. A settlement was established in 1794, but the settlers were subsequently driven off by Indians and didn't return until 1800. The original settlement was known as Prather's Fort, for one of the settlers, and Licking Station. It was later renamed Adamsville for William Adams, a prominent local citizen, and renamed again as Salyersville, for Samuel Salyer, after the formation of Magoffin county. The post office opened as Burning Spring in 1829, was moved and renamed Licking Station in 1839, moved and renamed Adamsville in 1849, and was finally renamed Salyersville in 1861. The population of Salyersville in 1990 was 1,917.
