    DAVID JESSE SALYER, son of ISAIAH SALYER and NANCY MCCARTY, was born December 4, 1818 in Copper Creek, Russell County, Virginia, and died January 23, 1893 in Barnetts Creek, Johnson County, Kentucky. He married MARY "POLLY" BURTON about 1838 in Russell County, Virginia. She was born December 16, 1815 in Russell County, Virginia, and died about 1890 in Johnson County, Kentucky.

    Notes: Information on this family can be found on page 511 of the book "Johnson County, Kentucky: A History of the County, and Genealogy of Its People Up to the Year 1927" by Mitchell Hall. In that book it says:

         "It is said that the Salyer family, which is well known in some portions of Eastern Kentucky and in southwest Virginia, had its earliest home in the southern part of France, where generations of them have lived for centuries. It is claimed by the ablest authorities that the name goes back 2,000 years, to the time of Julius Caesar, when the "Salye" tribe resisted the conqueror, holding that portion of France known as Provence despite the valor of Caesar's Legions.
         "The annals of the Salyer family in America begin with Benjamin K. Salyer, a Huguenot who left his native land and settled in or near Charleston, South Carolina, about 1700. In keeping with the characteristic energy and enterprise of his race, he, in the course of years, became a wealthy planter in the colony of South Carolina. He seems also to have acquired land in the colony of North Carolina, for he died at Guilford Court House, in that colony, in 1754. Family records say that he died as a result of falling from his horse while riding over his estate.
         "There is some definite information, which has come down to us, in regard to at least two of his sons, who have numerous descendants in Virginia and Kentucky and scattered throughout the southern and western states. Benjamin Salyer Jr., born in 1730, was a soldier in the Revolution under General Greene, and was wounded in the famous retreat from the Dan River. Zachariah Salyer, another son (who must not be confused with his nephew, Benjamin junior's son, who was in the war of 1812, and who married Elizabeth Dunn) served also in the Revolution and was with Washington in the dire winter of 1777 at Valley Forge. It is believed that Benjamin K. Salyer had another son - John, who is mentioned in family traditions, but we have no certain record of him as he appears to have left no descendants, if he had any.
         "In 1910 there died in Wise County, Virginia, Samuel Salyer, at the age of 117, who was a second cousin of the Kentucky Samuel, who has a nephew, Hon. Samuel J. Salyer, of Fort Collins, Colorado. The Wise County Samuel's father was also a Samuel. The numerous Samuels in the family have been confusing in tracing the various branches, but the long memory of Uncle Sammy of Wise aided materially in straightening out the tangle. Several families resided on Mud Lick and Paint Creek in the western part of Johnson County and have reared large families there.
         "For more of the Salyer family, other than what is included here, see page 967 of the 'History of Kentucky' by Perrin, Battle, and Kniffen."

    It also says that David Jesse Salyer was born in 1818 in Wise County, Virginia, and died in January of 1893. He married Mary "Polly" Burton and their children were General (died while serving in the army), Sophia, Lucina, Zachariah (died in the army), Malissa, Thomas, Dicy (born in 1848, married A. W. Rice), David Jesse Jr., B. F., and Mary (died in infancy).

    And:

         "It is said that David Jesse was named for a preacher whose name was David Jesse, who was related to the Vickers family. The above family is as submitted by a grandson, Add M. Salyer. The records of Johnson County for June 28, 1847 show that "Polly" Salyer was appointed as guardian over Levi Salyer's family. Their children as given in the court order book were: David J., Anna, Muecarius, Joseph, Wiley, Benjamin, Levi, Lucinda, Mary Ann, Riley, and William W. Salyer."

    On page 56 of the 1850 census for Johnson County, Kentucky (dated September 7, 1850), David J. Salyer is listed as the head of the household for house #369, he's a farmer, born in Virginia, and he's 30 years old.
