The death date on this stone is wrong. Legal documents from the County Court of Pike County, show his date of death as 15 September 1874. We had been told that Solomon's stone was lying on the ground. On our visit there, we were thrilled to see that someone had set it upright and placed a fence around it. This stone is deteriorating badly and will be impossible to read in a few years. We are happy that we now have a Rubbing of it. Thanks Lisa!!!
We also have an Earlier picture that was taken several years before the stone became so badly deteriorated.
This is the GPS location of Solomon's marker:
N 39 degrees 33.567
W 090 degrees 48.612
