I believe both are burried in the cemetary on the south side of Central Lake on the east side of M88. If anyone is up there, be sure to see the old homestead, a mile or so east of US31 on M88. Big red barn still says S. B. Anway.
Can't miss it. Drop in at the house across the road, my brother may be there.
You need a photo of Silas? His gravesite? I can probably get my hands on a picture of Silas. (My great grandfather) Silas was in an Ohio unit...
"In 1862 he enlisted as a private in Company H, One Hundred and First Ohio Volunteer Infantry, his company being commanded by Captain Shriver, and he thereafter continued in active service until practically the close of the great struggle through which the integrity of the Union was perpetuated. His command became a part of the Army of the Cumberland, and he participated in the battles of Perryville, Stone River, Chickamauga, and the various skirmishes of that campaign and in all other manoeuvers in which his regiment was concerned, being fortunate in escaping serious wounds or illness. He received his honorable discharge on the 20th of June, 1865..."
My cousin has a piece of a 3" sapling with about 6 balls in it he brought back as a souvenir from the war.
