Lucy b.1832
Mary 1833 – 1924
Malinda 1838 – 1926 m.Abraham Scales

Solomon Jr b.1841 m.Annie unknown (found in Enid City, Garfield, OK Territory, in 1900). Also found this blurb on Ancestry.com about his Civil War Service: "SOLOMON SAWYER, confectioner, came to Kansas in December, 1868. Commenced present business in June, 1879. Was born in Surrey Co., N.C., July 1, 1840. Was pressed into the service of the Confederate army in 1861, and was compelled to work for the Southern cause in various ways for over three years, but finally made his escape to his native county, and remained concealed until the surrender of Gen. Lee. Came North in 1866, and went to Ohio where he remained until 1868, when he came to Kansas. Was married in June, 1869, at Topeka, to Mrs. Jane Woods, who died about five years ago. Was married again June 13, 1882, to Miss Sarah Mitchell, of Topeka.

John b.1845 It appears John was forced to enlist on the same date and into the same regiment as brother Solomon Jr. He (John) was discharged for wounds.

Sarah b.1847
Adam 1850 – 1943 he married at least twice before his death. You might already have a lot of info and records on him since you mentioned him in your posting.

Elizabeth 1852 – 1943 m.James "Jesse" Spease about 1876 and had at least 6 children.

Joseph C 1854 – 1919 m.Louise Lovell about 1875 and had about 14 children. Joseph and Louise are buried in Benbow AME church cemetery in East Bend, Yadkin, NC.

Jane 1856 - 1932 m.William Cundiff about 1877 and had at least 9 children.

Finding more info than records to indicate she was a Free Person of Color (FPOC) has been difficult, but I am still looking. It is interesting to find out that both Soloman Jr and his brother John were forced to serve for the Confederacy. Email me if you like. Thank you.
