4. SOLOMON LEVEL (John) was born 27 Jun 1827 in Ohio, USA and died 05 Sep 1887. He married NAOMI FRENCH on 24 Dec 1850 in Decatur County, Indiana, USA. She was born Sep. 9, 1825 in Ohio, USA and died Nov. 6, 1901 Indiana. Both are buried in Antioch Cemetery, Decatur County, Indiana, USA. See pictures of their tombstones at http://findagrave.com. James Stone, in The House of Stone at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/12562939/person/-231139126, claims Ida is the daughter and Frank Edgar is the son of Solomon and Naomi. Since Ida was born before Frank, and in the later census is listed as their grandchild, it makes sense that Frank is also a grandchild. The question is, who are the parents? Frank was born 20 Apr 1878 Indiana and died October 1947. He married MARY THERESA TEWELL, who is buried in Saint Johns Cemetery, Loogootee, Martin County, Indiana, USA. On 20 Apr 1878 in Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana, he married CORA VIRGINIA FIDDICK, b. 17 Oct 1888 Hendricks, IN, d. 25 Oct 1965 in Madison, Dane, Wisconsin, USA after the death of her third husband Frank Zurney.

Notes for Lenna Belle Levell:
In 1900 census at age 16 with sister Alta
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=53963884 claims EMMA (1885--1934) was wife of ORIS BURKHOLDER (1880--1947) and shows a tombstone with those names and dates. Her parents were Abraham LeVelle and Elizabeth Kizer.
Burial for Emma and Oris: Brandon Cemetery, Brandon, Buchanan County, Iowa, USA
But a family tree at ancestry.com claims Oris married EMMA CROFT, born abt. 1886, and the 1910 census and 1930 show his wife Emma R. was born in IA with a father born IL and mother born England. I don't think she's Lenna Belle Levell.

Two Young Men Killed
Robert Levelle and Frank S. Hanna Meet Death While Digging Sewer Ditch
Ground Caves on Them
Frightful Accident Occurred on North Sixth Street This Forenoon
.....Two of Estherville's young men, Robert Levelle and Frank S. Hanna, met a frightful death this forenoon about half past eleven while they were digging a sewer on North Sixth street near the home of Warren Pullen. The earth caved in on them and they were smothered to death before they could be rescued. When help reached them they were standing erect but life was extinct. Death was doubtless almost instantaneous. The ditch was about eight feet deep where they were.
.....The bodies were removed and taken to Warren Pullen lot where they were left until the families were notified of the awful accident.
.....Mr. Levelle leaves a wife and three small children and Mr. Hanna was only recently married to Miss Hattie Strait. Both victims of the accident were young men about twenty-five years of age.
.....The bereaved families have the sincere sympathy of the entire community in their affliction.

Zelma Davis); Oliver lived most of his life on a hilly farm south west of the Flat Rock community, in Jennings County. He was a farmer and also ran a sorghum mill for many years. The name, Hull, is believed to have originated in Yorkshire, England, where the city named Hull is a seaport on the river named Hull. There are still a lot of Hulls in Ripley County, and about 2% of all Americans have this surname, or about one in every 5, 000. Being a common name does not make it any less honorable or important, it does however, indicate they have been prolific."
