Biography*   SOLOMON S. FIRESTONE is a representative of one of the most prominent families of Wayne County, Ohio. His parents were David and Elizabeth (Rice) Firestone, the latter being a daughter of Christian and Charlotte (Hine) Rice. The family of David Firestone consisted of eight children, viz. : Lydia, John, Rice, David R., Simon B., Solomon S., Jacob H. and Peter C. The father was a farmer, and at his death owned a valuable farm of 130 acres, which is now the property of his youngest son, Peter C. He was a representative citizen of Wayne County, but died before his fond hopes for its future were realized, his death occurring September 25, 1851, when in the prime of his vigorous manhood, being only forty-two years of age. He left a large family of children (the eldest, the only daughter, being but fifteen years old ) in care of the devoted wife, who with the love of a faithful mother cared for the children and lived to see them all arrive to the years of majority, married and comfortably located on valuable farms of their own. The wife remained a widow, and died March 24, 1884, aged seventy-three years.

Solomon S. Firestone, the subject of our sketch, is a native of Wayne County, and in the common schools of the county of his birth received his early education, supplementing it by attending the academies at Hayesville, Smithville and Fredericksburgh. For twelve years he devoted the greater part of his time to school-teaching, and, by an economical use of his earnings and with what he inherited from his parents' estate, became the owner of 130 acres of valuable land, to which he now gives his attention, and, under his skillful management, it is becoming one of the best farms in his township. Mr. Firestone is one of the respected citizens of Chester Township, and has served a number of years as justice of the peace, although he has no aspirations for political honors. He has been a faithful servant for his fellow-townsmen, who regard him with the esteem he justly merits. He was married in 1878 to Miss Alice McFadden, daughter of William McFadden, of Chester Township. To them have been born two children, John A. and Luther Z. Mr, and Mrs. Firestone are members of the Lutheran Church. In politics he affiliates with the Democratic party.1
