In Response To: Re: Solomon Bruce and Barney Redman ()
Hello all interested,
State of Pennsylvania
As for divorces, most back then just took another partner and never got a divorce. Some even remarried without their husbands or wives dying for them to legally do so. Furthermore, Bruce family information has always stated that Solomon was from Hardy Co. In addition, Mary Louisa, his daughter, states that she was from Hardy Co., Va. Her mother Jane, was either very fair or white. The local papers state that when she had children, one of them was so light that they could pass. The Fisher family in Washington, Penna. could be relatives. They are very fair.
Solomon may have relocated to Greene County knowing that other relatives, the Clifford and Redmond/Redman families were already living there.
