Marriage NoteDarrell and Sharon married twice.
Jennifer Irene Dredfulwater (email@example.com) in Muskogee, OK writes that her 4th gr/grandfather was David D. Salyer who married Susanna “Susa” Fletcher Arnett Miles. Their son, Isaiah “Zer” Salyer married Polly Ann Carpenter and their son Gus Salyer was born in 1892 in KY.spouse: Miles, Susannah (Arnett) (~1820 - )
David D. Salyer b. 1817 d. 1880 was buried in the Allen Cemetery at Fredville here in Magoffin County. He was the son of William M. Salyer b. 1776 d. 1854 and his first wife, Nancy Raney. William M. m. 2nd to Dorcas Patton in 1843.
David D. married on 6 Apr 1837 Floyd Co. KY to Susanna Miles, a daughter of Elizabeth Miles. Some descendants claim she was an Arnett.
The David Salyer family is found in the 1850 Floyd Co. KY census and in the 1860, 1870, and 1880 census records of Magoffin County.
In 1880, Isaiah Salyer is given as head of household but his parents; David Salyer age 63 and Susan age 60 are listed in the household. Isaiah is age 22 and his wife Polly is age 20. They have children Cora Salyer age 5, Gholson Salyer age 2, and Catherine Salyer age 7 months.
There is no 1890 extant census for Magoffin County so if your grandfather Gus Salyer was born in 1892 in Kentucky he was probably born here in Magoffin. I don’t find Isaiah in the 1900 or later census records of Magoffin and birth records did not materialize until 1911.
William M. Salyer was a son of Isaiah Salyer, Sr. b. 1752 and d. 2 Dec 1818. His wife was Mary -?- b. in Russell Co. VA.
David Salyer has a number of descendants in the southeast portion of the county and is buried on a hill near where he lived. One of his descendants, Connie Wireman, has been searching for the burial site of his wife, Susannah (Arnett/Miles). Was she buried beside her husband or did she travel west with her son Isaiah’s family?
Burial - [date: Fredville, KY] [place: Harper, Magoffin Co, KY at an Allen Cemetery]The cemetery is located in the David Quadrangle, about 200 ft. above Hade Allen Cemetery, 1/8 mi. north of the Fredville post office on Hwy. 7.
