Solomon Miner was born in about 1807 the area of Fayette-Somerset Counties, PA, the son of Daniel and Mary Minor.
As a young boy, he moved to near Sego, Perry County, OH with his pioneering parents and siblings. When he was age five, his mother died. His father remarried, and later moved to Cardington, Morrow County, OH.
Solomon could not read or write, evidenced by the fact that he signed his name with an "X."
He was married, but his bride's name is not known.
The pair bore two daughters, Sarah A. Miner and Mary E. Miner.
When the federal census was taken in 1850, Solomon was age 43 (marked "33") and resided with his brother Jacob near Brownsville in Bowling Green Township, Licking County.
His last known footprint on the paper trail was made on Sept. 2, 1857. At that time, he was in Cardington, a few years after his father's death. He received a payment of $20.29, as his equal share of his father's estate, and signed a receipt acknowledging the payment. The receipt was witnessed by William Shunk.
His fate after that is unknown.
