Solomon Thomas Tipton was born in Bakersville, North Carolina on 23 October 1872. Sometime in his teens or early twenties he moved to Oklahoma. In 1921 he supplied the land on which the "Tipton Orphans Home" was built. He married Maggie Belle Watson and they had three children, D'lila, Vanoy & Oreene. Solomon and Maggie eventually moved to Muleshoe, Texas where they farmed. In his later years they moved to Denver, Colorado, were Thomas died in March 1970.
