#FarmerFriday Peter was born on November 13, 1830, to Conrad and Saloma Solt. When Peter turned 19, he ventured out to make his fortune as a buyer and seller of livestock, later being hired as a drover, driving stock over the mountains from Ohio to New York City. He made two trips first with two hundred and fifty hogs and later with two hundred head of cattle. He started his own business P. Solt & Company, which bought and sold livestock. On May 15, 1853, in Fairfield County, Ohio, Peter married Miss Henrietta Cloud. The couple had seven children; Mary Elizabeth, David, Clifford, Ellen Saloma, Dora, Sanderson, and Fanny Grant. Shortly after his marriage, Peter visited Hancock County, and purchased forty acres of land in Eagle Township. He and his wife moved to that property on August 31, 1853. Peter began clearing the land at night while devoting his daylight hours to his stock business. In 1882, he handled nineteen hundred and fifty hogs, and seven hundred and fifty head of cattle. He was very involved in his community, and was once elected sheriff of the county. Peter worked hard until his death on June 28, 1908. He was buried in Keller Cemetery in Jenera,
