    Notes 
    • Silas grew to maturity in New Jersey, and subsequently followed the tide of emigration westward, along with his parents family, coming with ox teams to Livingston County, when this part od the State was in its primitive condition, its dense forest being populated by the wild animals native to this region and the untotured savage, who roamed at will wherever it pleased him so to do. Boundary line were then unknown; and the early settlers cut hay indiscriminately, and pastured their cattle where they found an attractive spot. Silas located on Knibloe Hill, in the town of Sparta, and, building a typical house
      for the shelter of himself and wife, remained on his homestead the remainder of his days, occupying the humble log cabin.
