In the year 1849, Solomon brought his family to Appanoose co., IA from Indiana. Born in PA to Johann Heinrich Seidenstricker (who took on the Anglicanized version of the name; Silknitter) and wife Elizabeth Ziegler. He married 5 May 1842 in Jefferson twp., Montgomery co., OH Catherine (Carter) Silknitter born 5 Mar 1818 to John G. Carter and Ruth (Hager Carter) in MD. They emigrated to Appanoose co when it was still a frontier district in which the work of development and improvement had scarcely begun. Much of the land was still in possession of the Government and he entered one hundred and sixty acres to which he afterward added from time to time until his holdings embraced six hundred acres. After obtaining his original claim he at once began to clear and cultivate it and devoted his remaining days to his agricultural pursuits. He died in March, 1865, while his wife passed away in 1897. They had 12 children; Henry Perry, Mary Jane (Elgin), Benjamin Franklin, Rebecca Susannah, Hiram William, Sylvenia Lovina (Smith), John Powell, Sherman L., Solomon Landis, Jacob A., Chloe M., Eli E. Silnitter.
