    448. Solomon7 WIXSON (child of Joshua Wixam, #896);[809],[810] born 10 Aug 1751 at Yarmouth, Barnstable Co., Massachusetts Bay, British America;[811],[812],[813] married Mary Randall (see #449), daughter of Joseph Randall and Mary Bartlett, circa 1777;[814] died 11 Apr 1813 at The Old Homestead, Steuben Co., New York, United States of America, at age 61;[815],[816] buried at Wixson Cemetery, Hammondsport Twp, Steuben Co., New York, United States of America, where his stone reads, "In memory of / SOLOMON / WIXSON who / died April 11, AD. 1813 / Æ D 60 years 8 months / and one day."[817],[818]

    Solomon served in the Revolutionary War, possibly as an enlisted man with the Regiment of Minute Men under Colonel Jacobus Swartwout, Dutchess Co. Militia.[819],[820],[821] Solomon and his descendants adopted the WIXSON form of the name.[822] In the spring of 1790, Solomon travelled to the Finger Lakes district of New York State, and built a log cabin on the west side of the outlet of Waneta Lake. He returned to Dutchess Co. in the fall. In the spring of 1791, Solomon and his family moved to their new home in the wilderness.[823] Solomon purchased 200 acres from a nearby land owner (on Lake Waneta), near Wayne, in Steuben Co. and he and Mary relocated there.[823] In their later years, the family built a mansion there for Solomon and Mary, now called the 'Old Homestead'. A published photograph of the Old Homestead exists.[824] He and probably Mary Randall appeared on the census of 1810 at Wayne, Steuben Co., New York, United States of America; where Solomon was the head of the household, with a couple recorded as over 45 yrs, 3 boys aged 16-25 yrs [Daniel, James, Solomon], 3 girls 16-25 yrs [Elizabeth, Mary, Clara], 1 boy 10-15 yrs [Elijah], and no slaves.[825] The Old Homestead is now Stone Rise Farm, 9250 West Waneta Lake Road, near Wayne, NY.[826],[827]

The heresy was his pleading for the return of a now penitent excommunicated member. The causing of confusion (disorderly walk) related to their vote against providing the pastor a salary, based on scripture.[833] Joshua, joined by Rachel, Amos, and 16 others from the Markham church, formed their own First Baptist Church of Pickering, and held services at his house on the 7th Concession beginning 2 Sep 1821.

He received the E½ by grant two years later. By 1831, he had sold the southern half of both properties to his daughter Ruth Sharrard (who sold it to Samuel Wixson in 1854).[837] In 1836, Joshua bought the northern half of Con. 8, lot 16.[838] He lived in 1837 at Con. 7, lot 20, Pickering Twp., Ontario Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada).[413] Around 1848, David Evans took over baptisms and services from Joshua at the First Baptist Church of Pickering & Whitchurch.[640]
