Solomon preceded his father Jefferson and step-mother to Oklahoma settling southwest of Sallisaw on the back southwest side of Black Horse Mountain known as Sadie. After his father relocated from near Huntsville, AL, father Jefferson built a country store at Sadie with Sol eventually operating the store as the general merchant. In 1913 Sol puchased from two minor Cherokee Indian allottees his homeplace on the east side of the road opposite from the store [re: abstract held by the family that in 1999 occupied the former Solomon Atkerson homeplace]. In 1999 the old foundation of the former store could still be seen in a thicket of trees.
