Solomon Scheurer1

Male
b. 12 April 1779


Father Valentine Scheurer Sr.1 b. 9 December 1760, d. 28 September 1840
Mother Elizabeth Kirby1 b. 1758, d. 9 September 1835
Pop-up Pedigree

Note*   Solomon did not seem to move west with Valentine. I can find no record of him in Somerset Co., PA and he surely did not show up in Muskingum Co., OH. There is however record of a Solomon Scheurer in Lehigh Co., PA. He shows up as a baptismal sponsor in the records of Lehigh Egypt Reformed Church. Whether this is the same Solomon Scheurer is not known. He does appear to be the right age.

TRAXEL, Drusilla, dr. Peter TRAXEL and w. Christina; b. Mar. 2, 1819; bap. Mar. 28, 1819; sp. Solomon

WALTER, Solomon, s. John WALTER and w. Elisabeth; b. July 20, 1822; bap. Aug. 4, 1822; sp. Solomon
SCHEURER and w. Catharina.

One theory is that Solomon Scheurer is in fact Adam Scheurer who lived next to Valentine in Londonderry Twp., Bedford and Somerset counties, who came to Muskingum Co., OH with Valentine, took a second wife there and returned to Somerset where he remained. This would mean his name was actually Adam Solomon Scheurer. Neither Solomon or Adam are ever shown with a middle name but neither is Valentine. It could be he never used Solomon as a proper first name. Adam was born ca 1780 which could very well be the date of Solomon's birth. So far there is no proof of this other than the close contact and relationship between Adam and Valentine. 
Name Variation   Solomon Shirer
