HARTLEY and daughter Jane HARTLEY (b. 1779, WashingtonCo,MD) who married Jacob Seiler Jr. (1759-1826) in BotetourtCo,VA in 1793 and established the surname spelling SYLAR in VA and TN. Jacob Sylar Jr. was the old Dutchman referred to in Davy Crockett's Own Story with whom 12 year old Davy was indentured for driving cattle from east TN to Natural Bridge, VA where Mary Hartley's father, Peter Hartley had a farm/ranch. Peter HARTLEY may also have been called Boston HARTLEY. Jane HARTLEY's mother was Mary Elizabeth Reiter/Rider. Jacob Jr. and Jane HARTLEY Sylar owned land in Augusta, Botetourt and Rockbridge counties VA before moving to TN (Knox, Roane, Hamilton and James counties). Peter (Boston) Hartley lived in Natural Bridge, RockbridgeCo, VA in 1798 when referred to in Davy Crockett's Own Story (Citadel Press, NY), pg. 22,23: "An old Dutchman by name of Jacob Siler, ---made a stop at my father's house. He had a large stock of cattle that he was carrying with him. ---He hired me to the old Dutchman to go the four hundred miles on foot, with a perfect stranger that I had never seen until the evening before. I set out with a heavy heart, it is true, but I went ahead until we arrived at a place, which was three miles from what is called Natural Bridge, and made a stop at the house of Mr. Hartley, who as father-in-law to Mr. Siler, who had hired me. My Dutch master was very kind to me, and gave me five or six dollars, being pleased, as he said, with my services." Davy stayed at the Hartley's for four or five weeks, became homesick and slipped away at night in a snowstorm to join a teamster, Mr. Dunn, for a ride back to his home on the Abington Road in TN. In 1793, Peter Hartley witnessed the marriage of his daughter Jane Hartley to Jacob Sylar in BotetourtCo, VA. Samuel HOUSTON of RoaneCo, TN in 1831 was executor of the 7 Aug 1827 RoaneCo will (recorded Jul 1831, probated 24 Oct 1831) of Peter Hartley and referred to in the will as "my beloved and trusty friend Samuel Houston".
