Hello Elaine, We understand the confusion. We were that way for 30 years.
The person or persons who transcribe the FamilySearch info apparently could not decifer the penmenship of the census taker.
Silas is the correct spelling. Full name: Silas Marion Inbody or the Imbody spelling. Also found is Enbodyand Leebody. Same person. The various spelling caused a lot of trouble when we began our research about 30 years ago.
The first marriage to Kate Hare. The Hare name is on Claude Marion Inbody's death certificate filed in Tyler County West Virginia. Claude or Claud was born either 1881 or 82. Both dates have been found. He is the only child of Silas and Kate.
We have been unable to determine where Silas was during the time from Daniel's death in 1865 and 1880 census, and the 20 years from 1880 to 1900. The 1900 census has
Claud(e) with Syle Leebody and Myrtle M Leebody again totally incorrect spellings The spelling changed from census to census.
We found his ( Silas's) two siblings in the 1870 census. William S. Imbody/Inbody is living with the William A. Wilson family in Fairview. Sarah Alice Imbody/Inbody (Embody/Enbody) is with a Wagner family also in Fairview Both Census's have the term "Orphan" beside their names. The were not "Orphans". At this point Silas has not been found anywhere or on any census in PA or W. Va. Where his mother and brother settled. We don't know if he stayed with Catherine or not. The 1870 shows Katerne (sic) married to Adam Linaberger. Watch that spelling also, but no silas.
Silas reappared in 1880 married to Kate Inbody. Kate has been found to have died in Wheeling W. Va on 14 Jan 1895. She was listed as being single on the death Certificate. but the PA. burial stated she was married and gave the 1893 date of death. I believe the report from the Ohio Valley General Hospital in Wheeling is the correct date. With all the variations in the spelling, all researchers must use all surname variations.
Allow me to direct you to the Butler Citizen Paper dated 5/21/1917. The Obituary for S. M Inbody. in which the name Anna Kennedy Inbody is mentioned as his wife. Also mentioned son Claud(e) and daughter Goldie, both at home. Claude, by this time was married with several children working in the oil fields of Wetzel and Tyler Counties of W. Va. In his obit. he (Silas) has a brother William Inbody,(My ggrandfather) a sister, (Sarah) Alice (Imbody) Scott of Glenns Ferry Idaho. and two half brothers Robert and Otis Lineberg(er) or Linaberger. Sarah Alice is the gggrandmother of Michael Emett of Riverside Cal. and Shephard Montana.
One question is: Who is Anna Kennedy? and two, where was Silas from 1880 to 1900. I personally believe he was in the Northern area of West Virginia, but can't prove it.
Also found that Myrtle or May/Mae remarried to a "Williams"
Myrtle and Silas is buried next to each other in the New Brownsdale Cemetery out side Renfrew Pa. You can find their graves on Find-a-Grave. The last on Goldie is the 1930 census. You can find her husband in the 1900 census as Julius Rex Wilson age 2 and 1920 census as J.Rex Wilson
Hope you have better luck than we have?
Thanks those searching for Silas and now Goldie
