Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 764, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"SOLOMON ZEHNER was born in Wayne County, Indiana, December 7, 1845, and is the youngest of the seven children born to SOLOMON and SALOMA (HOPPAS) ZEHNER; the children are named DAVID, WILLIAM, MICHAEL, JOHN, ELIZABETH, ABRAM and SOLOMON. The father was born in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, in 1805; he followed milling all his life, and died. in 1851, in Marshall County, Indiana. SOLOMON, our subject, resided in Marshall County until twenty-one years old, when he moved his family to Miami County, where he lived about seven years. In 1877, he came to Monterey (Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County), and built a fine grist mill - the only one in the township; it contains four sets of buhrs, is run by steam, has a capacity of fifty bushels per day, and the custom work averages about 7,000 bushels per annum. MR. ZEHNER, after quitting the common schools, attended the Valparaiso Male and Female College (now the Northern Indiana Normal School) in 1864-65. He was married, September 2, 1865, to SARAH YEARICK, in Marshall County, and to this union have been born four children - EDWARD, EMMANUEL, JENNIE and CARRIE. MR. ZEHNER is an Odd Fellow, and a member of the Adventists' Church."
