sorry I cannot help directly. Something I came accross was the name Solomon. Try the variations Simon and Septimus. I have a Simon Leck/Lakie/Lisk but the family bible has him listed Septimus married 1833 Hull UK.

Thought you might like this story

John Shope was supposedly killed by Hiram LakeyThis story is, as was told to Bill and R. Lakey and John Bauman in 1974 by Mattie West, Julie Van Hook and Ina Shope.
In 1849 on Lakey Creek in Macon County, North Carolina this event took place. The Lakey version said they, Lakey and Shope families, were laying a rail fence between the creek fields of the two families. The Shope version said that it was in the same fields only there was a corn husking going on. An arguement came up over the way John Shope iV had kissed Brannon Lakey's girlfriend in an ungentlemanlike fashion.
Shope story says John IV won corn husking contest and this kiss was prize. Lakey story seems to have happened in past. A wrestling match ensued and the Lakey boy won, pinning the John Shope IV. Father John Shope III rushed saying, "I will kill any---- that can whip my boy as it must have been done by cheating." The Lakey father grap up a rail and in defence of his son struck the Shope father and killed him breaking the rail. Mr. Lakey went home and his wife cooked him some food to take with him on his trip to Tennessee. He rode out on a white Stallion which whenied as he passed through the low gap in the hills. He was never to be heard from again. The body was left in the field for 2-3 days and was buried about 200 yds. away on the hillside in the cemetery of the Lakeys and Shopes. The Rail was placed in the attic of the Lakey house and remained there untill the house fell in a few years back. The Lakeys and Shope were neighbors and friends from Buncomb County, N.C. that first setled in Macon County, N.C. and have remained neighbors and friends since. J Brannon Lakey (the Lakey Boy)married to Elizabeth Shope (daughter of John Shope III who was killed and a sister of John Shope IV boy who got into fight). Even though many court battles over the estate have ensued. Even today there is a court case takeing place over the title to the land. Brannon Lakey's family seems to have it and Shope's family are after it.
