    From 'Dietz Cookbook and History 1990' compiled by Sharon Pierce Schierand MaybelleMcAbeeBates: 'Solomon H. Dietz was born 5 October 1762in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania--the third child of Johann Friedrich Dietzand Catharina Christina Rissler Dietz. He was baptized 'Salomon' (Germanform of name) on 10 October 1762 at St. Michael/ Zion Lutheran Church inPhiladelphia. Solomon grew up in the Southwark district of Philadelphiaand moved with his parents and the rest of the family out to LancasterCounty during the American Revolution. Solomon learned his father'sskills, and like his father and grandfather, he was a tailor byprofession.
    Around 1782 Solomon married Anna Barbara_____. A marriage record hasnot yet been found, and her maiden name is not known for certain,although it may have been Krimmer. Solomon and Anna seem to have movedback and forth between Southwark in Philadelphia and New Holland in EarlTownship, Lancaster County, for some of their children were baptized atSt. Michael/Zion Lutheran Church in Philadelphia and some at TrinityEvangelical Lutheran Church in New Holland.
    Sometime between 1791 and 1793 the family moved to Hickory, LincolnCounty, North Carolina. A deed recorded 13 October 1791 by 'Solomon Dietzof Southwark, Taylor' shows the sale of Solomon's home and property inPhiladelphia:
    This indenture made the first day of September, 1791 betweenSolomon Dietz of the City of Philadelphia of the one part and JohnDietz of the County of Lincoln and State of North Carolina on the otherpart. Witnesseth that the said Solomon Dietz for and in consideration ofthe sum of twenty-five pounds to him in hand paid by the said JohnDietz . . . all that Messuage and Frame Tenement at the corner ofShippen and Fifth Street . . .

    We might assume then that Solomon and Anna moved their family toNorth Carolina that fall of 1791. According to information in TheHeritage of Catawba County, North Carolina, Vol. 1, we may
    also assume that they accompanied John, Solomon's brother, returning fromone his trips to Phila- delphia to buy supplies for his store. In July1794 Solomon received a grant (#839) for 300 acres in Lincoln County, andin 1795 he bought an additional 123 acres. Various land transactions areto be found in Lincoln County Deed Books, in which Solomon was buying andselling property between the years 1795 and 1811.
    Of the children of Solomon and Anna, their daughter Salome and sonGeorg Adam died in early childhood. Christian Friedrich 'Frederric' (ourancestor) will be described in more detail in the next section. AnnaMarie married Seibert Spencer around 1820 and moved to Missouri,according to information which Ruth Karisny (a descendant of Anna Marie)has given Bonnie Dietz Baker. Ruth reports that Solomon and Anna Barbaraalso had a daughter named Mary who went with Anna Marie to Missouri.Solomon Jr. married his cousin Elizabeth Dietz, daughter of Jacob3 andSarah Killian Dietz. The children of Solomon Jr. and Elizabeth includedChristian, Henry Connor, Selioh, and Martha. Solomon Jr. still has manydescendants in Lincoln and Catawba Counties, North Carolina.
    Solomon Sr. is mentioned in several court records in Lincoln County,North Carolina, in connection with legal proceedings involving theorphaned children of his brother Frederick who drowned in Pott's Creek in1793.
    Assuming that Mary was born after Solomon Jr., Anna Barbara probablydied sometime between late 1795 and early 1797. Marriage records ofLincoln County show Solomon remarrying on 26 April 1797; his second wifewas Elizabeth Huffman, and this marriage was without issue.
    According to recorded estate papers, Solomon Sr. died in 1822 in theHickory area of Lincoln County, North Carolina.

    Many thanks to Bonnie for her generosity and for a continuing exchange ofinformation and ideas.

    Cousin Bill Dietz from Hickory, North Carolina, came over to visit hiscousins in north Georgia several times, and he stayed with Daniel S.Dietz and his family. Now, Bill was rather fond of strong drink, whichdidn't sit too well with his Catoosa County cousins, most of whom wereBaptists and teetotalers. Getting up one morning after some excessiveimbibing the night before, Bill struggled into his pants with quite a bitof difficulty. Daniel's family heard him knocking about, making a racketand hollering that his pocket was empty and his wallet was gone. Billreared and pitched, accusing Daniel of stealing his wallet. Finally,Daniel got him to calm down enough to listen to him: 'Bill, vou've gotyour britches on backward!' --Lula Dietz Pierce '
