In 1848 he registered his stock mark as follows: a swallow fork in the left ear and under bit in the same, a crop and under bit in the right ear.

    I have been looking for info on Solomon Dewell/Dowell’s third wife Sarah M. Hoon McComb 1796-1865…..She and Solmon would be our ancestors. I believe she was Indian but I cannot find any records of marriage or where she might be buried. Can you help me.
