Anita, thanks for your reply. Solomon William Rolston (b. 1833 in (West) Virginia) moved to Georgiana Twp., Sacramento Co., Ca., sometime before the 1860 census. He also appears there during the 1870 census. In the 1880 census he lives in Franklin Twp.. In 1891 his lawyer writes to Arizona concerning the death of Solomon's brother. In the letter he says Solomon lives in Courtland. I have not found anything on Solomon or his family after that date.
Solomon's wife, Mariah A. Runyon, lived in San Joaquin, Sacromento Co., Calif., age 84 at the time of the 1930 census. She was staying with her eldest son, Charles. I do not know when she or Solomon died.
Do you happen to live in the Courtland area? I would be interested in knowing if any of the Rolston descendants still live there. We are having a family reunion in West Virginia in July; it would be nice to invite them.
