George Fireoved # 31846178 (Parents FYI)
Hey, I saw your question, and this is not my family (nor my business?) Lol
but I've access to census records and other researchers online so I've listed
the following below (in case you were still looking for family records and you
don't have access). Please know: 1) Census records do not provide any sort
of relationship information until 1880 and after and 2) Sometimes the records
will contain conflicting information (indicated below with a star (*)).

Bottomline, so far, the only place that George is listed as the son of Solomon
Fireoved and Catherine Swartz is the book published in 1880 (shown in #3)

Hope that helps a little.
Happy family-history hunting.

1) Census records provided

1850 Census: Cass, Richland, Ohio
Solomon (59), Elizabeth(58), and Catherine (17)
Note: Catherine became Catherine (Fireoved) Wentz
when she married Solomon Wentz

1860 Census: Cass, Richland, Ohio
Solomon (68), Elizabeth (66)

1870 Census: Cass, Richland, Ohio
Daughter Catherine (Fireoved) Wentz, husband Solomon, their children, and
Solomon Fireoved (79)

1880 Census: Cass, Richland, Ohio
Daughter Elizabeth (Fireoved) Bushey, husband Jacob, their children, and
Solomon Fireoved (89)

Solomon died after 1880 and before 1900
No Census record of his death

2) War of 1812 pension application file and U.S. Veteran Gravesite records

Solomon Fireoved
b 14* Mar 1791
d 14 Jun 1883
Burial: St. Peters London, Lutheran Church Cemetery, Shelby, OH 44875

War of 1812 Pension Application Form
Fireoved, Solomon
U. S. Army (War of 1812)
Pvt, PA Mil, War of 1812
Capt. George Hendel
Also served in Capt. Wondles' Co, PA, Sept 1818
Wife named as Elizabeth Hawk*

3) Huge write-up on Solomon's page from a book entitled "History of Richland County, Ohio"
Published in 1880 by A. a. Graham & Co in Mansfield, Ohio
as provided by Solomon (Eliza Ann and John)
They are, specifically, on page 789 under the Cass Township section.

(Solomon Fireoved and also son John Fireoved)

The write up claims
Solomon was born 16 Mar 1791* in Lebanon County, PA
Solomon was the son of a Prussian (Dad was German) and an American
Solomon married his first wife in 1811, her name was CATHERINE SWARTZ
Solomon and Catherine had GEORGE and Isaac, then she passed
Solomon entered the Army
Solomon fought in the War of 1812
Solomon got out of service, eventually married Elizabeth Haak*
Solomon and Elizabeth had nine children, only five living at time of publishing
.. (two children were (sort-of) named: a son John was mentioned and a son-in-law named Jacob Bushey)
Elizabeth died 04 Oct 1860*

Note: Text also contains write-ups for sons-in-laws...
