Solomon Bolton is my Melungeon 2nd Greatgrandfather. I have proved my lineage to him and his father Spencer.Solomon was in the war of 1812 and I am now an organizing President of the U.S. Daughter of the 1812 War, Pvt. Solomon Bolton Chapter here in McAlester, and welcome new members. I have written a story on him called Solomon Bolton, My Melungeon Grandfather. I have given this to the Historian at the Chattangooga Times and many others. I am now sending a copy to the library there in Chattanooga. I am searching for these ancestors of Solomon and his wife Rachael and any pictures will be welcomed. I will be sending in new stories perodically on my Melungeon ancestors I have listed.

I need information on a cemetery that was once the Jerome C. Simmerman property, now owned by I am told, the Baylor School. How is the cemetery kept up and are there any stones still in it. I need a picture of the stones if possible of Jemmia Ann Simmerman, Jerome's wife, b. April 22, 1834. D.Dec. 12, 1857. Also her son John D. Oct. 2, 1856. Is Rachael Bolton burried there also, if not does anyone know where she may be burried. She lived on Williams Island at the time of her demise. These are my Melungeon ancestors I have researched and putting in a book. I would like to correspond with anyone who can help me and other Melungeons as I discovered mine in 1991. No living ancestor of Solomon and Rachael Bolton knew this until my find. A mystery as to why to all of us. Solomon was Portuguese, Spaniard and German. Rachael was a Spaniard.
