DeRossett geneology/Solomon DeRossett

I just thought it odd that Solomon, the first (as far as I know) DeRossett U.S.A.-wise, isn't mentioned. He settled in the Prestonsberg area. He was in KY as an emmisary of Napoleon when same was defeated and imprisoned. Solomon in his infinite wisdom decided to settle in KY rather than return to uncertain ends in France. Does anyone out there have any more of the story?
Youngest California DeRossett, to my knowledge is Noah W. DeRossett, 8/12/93. He does have a niece and a nephew born in '94 and '96, different last names however. Won't list them until I talk to my daughter for her okay. Look forward to hearing from y'all!
P.S. Who is the oldest living DeRossett? Can anyone beat the high side of 89? (It isn't me!)
