Solomon Preston was the son of Solomon HUFFORD (1838-1893) and Eliza Nicklin GARRISON (1841-1924). Solomon P's siblings were Martha Ann (1861-1944), Effie Arminda (1865-1910), Lewis Townson (1869-1939), Atha Florance (1871-1914), Hiram Nathaniel (1875-1912), Thomas Bishop (1878-1958), and Daniel S. (1885-1885).

Solomon P. 1st married Louisa NUTTER, on September 2, 1886, in Harrison County, West Virginia. Two children were born to the marriage: Harvey A. (1887-1951, m. Vergie Marie SAITER and Nettie Matilda WEBBER) and Arious Vanburen (1890-1970, m. Emaline BRITTON). Louisa died in 1896.

Solomon P. 2ndly married Atha OWENS, on July 20, 1897, in Doddridge County, WV. Three children were born to the marriage: Louisa Samantha (1898-1981, m. Howard Herman FRIEND), Goldie Tempest (1905-1994, m. Charles Lowell STUTLER, Francis N. COLLINS, and Earl M. DILLOW), and a daughter born March 19, 1907. The youngest daughter almost certainly died before 1910; there is no record of her after the day of her birth. Atha died birthing that baby.

Solomon P. 3rdly married Lucy Ann COTTRILL, the widow of Clarence Lee KNIGHT, on January 20, 1909, in Doddridge County, WV. Two children were born to the marriage: Gladys Juanita (1910-1998, m. Thomas Ray MORRIS) and Thomas Preston (1912-1974, m. Emma Janet BLATTNER).

Solomon Preston died of typhoid fever; three years later, his widow Lucy died of tuberculosis, and his children were orphaned.
