Born to Joseph and Lydia (Barnes) Conder. Married Mary E. Rawley in Owen County, Indiana March 1, 1866. After her death in 1895, he married Martha Childress Long on Sept 4, 1897. His second wife died in 1920. He was survived by two children: John P. Conder and Mrs. Nancy A. Parcell who was his caregiver for the last 14 years of his life. Along with his brother Adam, he served in Company F of the 97th Indiana Infantry during the Civil War and was wounded near Atlanta in 1864. The 97th Indiana fought all across the South from the siege of Vicksburg to the occupation of Richmond, culminating in a victory parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington a few days after Lincoln's assassination. Solomon moved to Missouri shortly after the Civil War and lived there for most of the rest of his life, though he did return to Indiana for several years. He was joined by his brother, Adam who moved to Missouri in about 1880. Solomon was the last living Civil War veteran of Knox County, Missouri and was probably the last surviving member of Company F, if not the entire 97th Indiana. He had been active in veterans affairs and served as Commander of Brazil, Indiana and Kirksville, Missouri posts of the Grand Army of the Republic. He died at age 93 from complications of sunstroke following record high temperatures.
