Samuel David Silvey source for middle name

Some time ago some one in the forum asked how I came up with David as the middle name for Samuel David Silvey husband to Celia Ann Wright.

My great grandfather was George Lewis Silvey listed in the 1880 Roane Co. Census as a one year old son of Celia Ann Silvey. This is a mystery to me since Samuel David died on March 30,1874 according to an obituary that lists Celia Ann as his second wife Im pretty sure its the same guy.

I once received a scrape of information that Lewis may have been Celias sisters child possibly born out of wedlock or as the result of an affair with a man other than her husband. If any body has any clues please let me know.

Celia Ann Silvey moved to the Aberdeen area in western Washington I suspect in the late 1800s or very early 1900s.

Lewis Silvey the one year old in the 1880 census married Etta Lawson she was the daughter of William Lawson a Tenn. neighbor according to the 1880 Tenn. Census.

The Lawson family also settled in Washington state but in the eastern part of the state near Colfax, Whitman County.

While looking for information on my GG Grandfather George Lewis Silveys parents, I requested a copy of his original Soc. Sec. Application. When Lewis filed ou his application in 1937 he listed his fathers name as Samuel David Silvey and his mother as Celia Ann Wright.

I would assume that the name Samuel David Silvey was direct information from Celia.
