BIRTH: Madison County, NC Heritage Book, Vol I, article 574 Waldrop/Wardrop, ‘Edward Waldrope, born 1758 in what would become Wake Co, NC, settled near Ivy Gap, then Buncombe Co, in the 1820’s along with 2 of his sons, Solomon and Moses.’
MILITARY: Revolutionary War Pension Application (S-7844 in the National Archives), Edward applied on 23 June 1834 in Yancey County, NC. He states that he was born in Wake County, NC. He entered the service in 1780. He served five tours of duty during the war. After the war he moved to Cabbarus County, NC, then to Caswell County, NC. Then he moved to KY, TN, Burke County, NC, then to the part of Buncombe County, NC which is now called Yancey County. ‘Index to NC Revolutionary Pay Vouchers’, The North Carolinian 4, No. 4, Dec 1958, in ‘Varied NC Records for Waldrop’ in Waldrop family book @ OBCGS, gives Edward Waldrop-Wardrop of the Hillsborough district.
MARRIAGE: ‘Wake Co. Marriage Bonds’ in ‘Varied NC Records for Waldrop’, in Waldrop family book @ OBCGS.
CENSUS: 1790 US Census index @ ACPL lists Edward Wardropt, pg 106. This is either Wake Co or Burke Co, NC (both are on pg 106 of the book). Could not find him in the actual enumeration, though.

Notes for Solomon WALDROP
CENSUS: 1830 US Census, Buncombe Co, NC, #286
1840 US Census, Yancey Co, NC, pg 284, 6 family members employed in agriculture. Males: under 5, 2 (Solomon and James), 5-10, 3 (Jerry, Moses, and Aaron), 10-15, 2 (Absolum and William), 15-20, 1 (Edward), 40-50, 1 (Solomon), 80-90, 1 (father, Edward), Females: 5-10, 1 (Lurania), 10-15, 1 (Matilda), 30-40, 1 (Nancy)
1850 US Census, Buncombe Co., NC, family #1796, pg 326
1860 US Census, Madison Co., NC, pg 618, family #206
1870 US Census, Madison Co, NC, Twp #3, Raysville, family #48
1880 US Census, Madison Co, NC, ED #125, pg 35, family #304-308, lists a 68 year old Solomon Waldrope with daughter Eliza J. (age 29) and granddaughter Dulcena (age 19). Could this be the correct Solomon with age reported incorrectly? Could Eliza J. be his daughter Ann Elizabeth?
OCCUPATION: 1850 Census gives Solomon as a farmer with $200 worth of real estate.
MILITARY: ‘NC Regiments 1861-1865, Vol II’, by Clark, at OBCGS, ’29th regiment, by Brigadier General Robert V. Vance’, pg 493, states that ‘… a noted man from Madison approached the guard line. The sentinal cried ‘halt, who comes there?’ The old man said ‘A man with 7 sons in the Confederate
army, and you can’t keep me out.’ Could this have been Solomon? I know that he had 5 sons in the Confederate army. Perhaps he was exaggerating or perhaps two of his other sons were also in the army (or maybe the home guard)?
POLL BOOKS: ‘1835 Poll Books NC, 12th Congressional District’, at Macon Co public library, by Biddix, ‘Yancey Co, NC, Ivy, Jervis’s precinct’ lists Edward, Moses, William and Solomon Wardroop.
DEATH: Madison Co, NC estate records index 1833, 1851-1943, by Allen (Records located Raleigh NC Archives) CR 062-508.35. This record was copied. It names H. Hunter and Allen Henderson as administrators. Not sure if this is for our Solomon since it was dated 8 Feb 1862 and Solomon is still alive in the 1870 census. This may be for the son of Solomon, Solomon Samuel who died in 1861 in the Civil War.

  1. Children of Solomon WALDROP and Nancy (—) were as follows:
