Lewis Solomon came to Texas from Mississippi. Solomon and his family settled in Williamson County, Texas where his sister, Dicy Netherlin, and her husband, Saul, had settled.

1880 Federal Census for Frio County, Texas
Franklin claims his mother was born in Alabama. Some say she was born in Georgia.
Franklin listed his father's place of birth as Louisiana.

The name Neatherlin has many spelling variations the most common of which are Neatherlin and Netherland. There is a family story that the name was originally Leatherlin and was English.

Accounts of the family were found in early 1600 Massachusetts church records. The early ancestor was a bond servant who worked off his time and altered his name.

He had one brother John whose wherabouts are unknown. Some say he and John were orphans who were raised by William and Rachel who were probably their aunt and uncle.

The family was traveling in west Texas in a covered wagon when Soloman got pneumonia and died. He was buried at the side of the trail and later, family members were unable to find the place. Later generations of the family changed the spelling of the name many ways.

Another death date/place: October 2, 1868 in Williamson County, Texas.
Another birth place: Tennessee.
