      BARFIELD, Solomon, Martyr, North Carolina.
      Solomon Barfield was not in the Militia. He was born on June 28, 1765
      and shot by a Tory neighbor named Wilson and some of the Bass boys
      in 1779 at age 14. He was the son of Jesse and Sarah Costello Barfield.
      During the Revolutionary War, when Frederick was quite a young man
      and still living in North Carolina, he and his brother Solomon were fired
      upon by in their corn field by some of their Tory neighbors. He was
      seriously wounded and Solomon shot down, mortally wounded. Frederick
      managed to get home, leaving his brother, as he thought, dead. Late in the
      night the family heard someone moaning as if in distress. Some of them
      went out to investigate and found Solomon crawling slowly and painfully
      toward the house. They carried him in and did what they could to relieve
      his sufferings, but he died before morning dawned. Frederick recovered and
      lived many years, suddenly dying of apoplexy

      1 WM 21-60, 5 OWM, 3 WFM, 4 B, 1 OB He died on 21 Nov 1829 in
      USA, Tennessee, Madison Co..(164) Frederick may have died in
      Rutherford County, Tennessee. (from the memoirs of Pauline Craig
      Hughes)
      " Frederic was twice married. After his marriage he lived in Tennessee near
      Stone River. One of his daughters, Susan - by the first marriage - married
      Needham Bryan, and about 1836, moved from Tennessee to Alabama.
      During the Revolutionary War, when he was quite a young man and still
      living in North Carolina, he and his brother Solomon were fired upon by
      some of their Tory neighbors. He was seriously wounded and Solomon
      shot down. Frederic managed to get home, leaving his brother, as he
      thought, dead. Late in the night the family heard someone moaning as if in
      distress. Some of them went out to investigate and found Solomon

      A deed of gift transferring property to Jessie and Sarah's sons dated
      January 24, 1780 mentions Solomon. Solomon was shot to death by
      Tory neighbors during the Revolutionary War. See story by Pauline Craig
      under Frederic Barfield. Also, From a family history written by Castillo
      Barfield dated 25 April 1886. In it he states -
      "Solomon Barfield was born in Sampson Co., NC 28 June 1765. He was
      murdered by the Tories at 14 yrs. of age by a family by the name of
      Wilson -- who also shot Uncle Fredrick at the same time but did not kill
      him. Wilson was afterward tried and shot."

      An interesting note from the research of Fletcher Freeman -
      January 1792 Frederick Barfield is named as the administrator of the estate
      of Jesse Barfield who had an orphaned minor child named Solomon.

      ?? Which Jesse with son Solomon is this? Frederick's father died 1780, and
      mother 1828, would his younger brother Solomon be called an orphan by
      the courts in 1792? Maybe this is the Solomon that married Sarah Crow? .
