Who were the parents of John Salmon b. 1730 NY d. about 1801?

+6 votes

John Salmon b. 8 Jan 1730  Southold, Suffolk Co NY  died about 1801 Dutchess Co NY.  He served in the Rev. War.  I have DAR papers for him.  The book The Complete Ancestry of Tennessee Williams calls him of the William Salmon who married Katherine Curtis Sunderland  m/2 Sarah Horton family, but does not name his parents.  By trying to get the dates to fit the only logical assumption seems to be John Salmon b. 1698 who married Lydia Paine.  I was told that John and Lydia had no children.  This John was the son of John (son of William above) and Sarah Barnes.  If you have proof, so much the better.

Couldn't find actual names of parents but found this source that might be a clue: Genealogical & Family History of Northern, NY
Pages 455-463 : 
The Salmons were an ancient and chivalrous Scotch family who, during the turbulent period which culminated in the seating of Robert Bruce upon the throne of Scotland (1306), fought valiantly for the preservation of their national independence, and at least one of them, if not more, was knighted by that monarch. In the fourteenth century, the Salmons migrated to England, and settled in Scotland. In 1640 three families of this name emigrated to America, one settling in Massachusetts, another in New Jersey, and the third established themselves in Southold, Long Island. Among the latter was William Salmon, who married the widow of Matthew Sunderland prior to 1649, and had William, John, and other children. The family about to be mentioned are descended from John Salmon, who was presumably of the Long Island family.

See Online at  [[https://books.google.com/books?id=mpUyAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA168&dq=%E2%80%9Cjohn+solomon+son+of+ye+above+named%E2%80%9D&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjO8q77nt3eAhWBTd8KHeNtAugQ6AEIDzAB]]

Long Island source records by Henry Hoff  includes the salmon records, kept by William salmon, born Aug 12, 1684  died May 10, 1759 “ and this 75th year of his age.”

P. 158/9. Has the family records, including

John Salmon Was married to Sarah Barnes August 23, 1683

John Solomon  Son  of the above named was born November 19, 1698 and departed this life July 28, 1762

P 183.   

Mar 2.  169[7].    My Father Jno. salmon died

mar. 21, 169[7]   My brother John salmon died 1697

So it seems Jon salmon and Sarah had his son John died in 1697 and another son John Who died in 1762.
