  • Notes 
    • John P. SALYER was born in Floyd Co., Kentucky. in 1846 and is a son of Fielding and Margaret (HALE) SALYER. The father was born March 11, 1805 and was a son of William SALYER, also a native of Virginia and British descent. William settled in Kentucky soon after Daniel Boone. Fielding grew to manhood on his father's farm in Kentucky, and October 2, 1825, married and afterward farmed there until 1849, when, with his wife and seven children, he came by water to Ozark, Ark. He landed on the present site of St. Paul in May, 1849 and improved a farm upon which he lived until his death, April 14, 1880. He took an active part in church and school interests and was an influential citizen. Margaret HALE was born in Kentucky May 23, 1816. She was reared in her native state, and although she never became identified with a church, was a good wife and mother and a believer in the teachings of the Bible. She died December 26, 1881. She was the mother of six daughters and one son: Mary, Sarah, Ursley, Arty, Malinda, John P. and Rhoda J. Sarah (now Mrs. HARRIS) lives in Texas; Ursley (Mrs. SPARKS) in Madison Co; Arty (Mrs. MONTGOMERY) in Texas and Rhoda J. (Mrs. HILL) in Arkansas. They, with John P., are the only children now living. He came to Arkansas with his parents when four years old. In 1861 he left home for Texas, and in May 1865 returned to Madison County, and began farming on the old homestead, which has been his home since. When the railroad was built to St. Paul his farm marked the terminus. In July, 1887, he established his present merchantile business in St. Paul, and is now considered one of its leading and representative men. January 28, 1866, he married Rachel ESTEP a native of this country, whose parents came from Illinois. Mrs. SALYER is the mother of the following children: Nancy J, William A., Mary, John P. Jr., Martha, Emily E., Harvey S., David C., Cora, Samuel N., Garlan. Mrs. SALYER died May 11, 1888, a member of the Methodist Church, to which Mr. SALYER also belongs. SOURCE & DATE UNKNOWN. This is a rather convoluted story and needs careful reading. Since John Preston died in 1927, it may be assumed that as of this time, 1997, his remaining siblings are also deceased.
