The Solomon from Illinois and the one from Wayne, Maine are the same. He married in Wayne in 1861. His civil war record has him as having deserted in Illinois but he re-enlists from Maine and served under General O.O.Howard. Solomon and his brother Siegmund Herman (Howard Lindsay's father)and sister Mathilda are all living together in Wilton, Maine in the 1880 census, all born in Prussia. I believe his father's name was Herman and mother Bernadine but haven't truly proven that yet. It is possible Frederick and Herman were brothers or cousins.
