The Solomon EPPERLY who married Rachel RATLIFF 1847 in Floyd Co Va is (I believe) the same person. Would like more information on Solomon. He and Rachel may have died 1880 to 1928, but where, when & why? Daughter Eliza Ellen married Benjamin Bethuel RATLIFF 1876 in Floyd Co and then moved to Mercer Co WV. Did her parents follow her to WV? Who were Solomon & Rachel's parents? Is Solomon, son of Jacob & Polly (HOWRY) EPPERLY, the same Solomon? Any information appreciated.
