LONG, Dr. Solomon- Born May 8, 1821 in Ash Co., N.C. son of John and Susannah (Stamper) Long. His father born September 30, 1783, died 1876; his mother born June 1790. He married 1844 in Wilksborough, N.C. Nancy E. Abshire,
born February 18, 1826 in Wilkes Co., N.C. daughter of William and Elizabeth Abshire. Her father born 1793, died 1847; her mother born 1790. Solomon and Susannah were married by Rev. S. Stamper. Solomon settled here in 1868. They had 3 children.
Jesse Toliver of Ashe Co., NC has been mentioned in several issues lately. As noted in at least one of their articles,
Jesse wife is Frances (Frankie) Stamper. I thought an article in the Wilkes County Heritage, Vol. 1, may be of interest
as Jonathan Stamper is Frances' Father. The following information is taken from article 1014
"Descendent of Jonathan Stamper." The article was submitted by Samuel E. Sebastian.
"Jonathan Stamper , of English descent, was born in Middlesex County, Va on April 24, 1719, died in Wilkes County in 1799. He was the son of Powell and Mary Brooks Stamper. He was named for his grandfather Jonathan Brooks."
The article also lists children of Jonathan and Rachel Stamper:
1. James married Sara Moore
2. Joshua married Jane Woodward
3. Joel married Nancy Cannaday
4. Jonathan, Jr. married Mary Davis
5. Jacob married Susan
6. Frances married Jesse Toliver
7. Jesse married Barbara
8. Susannah married John P. Burton.
Children of Jesse and Frances Toliver are listed as:
Jane, Susan, John, Martha, Jacob, Allen, Solomon, Starling, and Hirum.
The article goes on to list Joel, Jacob and Joshua Stamper as well as
Jesse Toliver and John P. Burton as serving in the Revolutionary War.
This is the only article in two volumes that I have found any information on a Toliver,
with the exception that a Moses Toliver is also listed as a Revolutionary War Soldier from Wilkes Co.
