d.11 Mar 1805 Columbia Co., Pennsylvania, United States
Facts and Events
Comment on Douglas Weaver's site: "Silas' first wife Jane died when she was only 23 years old in 1805. Silas married again in 1806 to Mary Peterman. His headstone in Coles Creek Cem says he was 83 years 2 months 24 days old when he died. His name appears on the same headstone as his first wife who died 59 years earlier." Coles Creek Cem, St. Gabriels Ch, Columbia Co., Pennsylvania is listed at Find-a-Grave as Saint Gabriel Cemetery, Benton, Columbia County, Pennsylvania. There is a picture of the church but not of the tombstone. Find-a-Grave has merely "Husband of Jane" and as of Sept 2012 her maiden name is unknown.
Jane's maiden name was given to me by the owner of her Find-a-Grave memorial page. "Sarah Jackson...Daughter of SIlas Jackson and Jane McHenry. Jane was the daughter of Daniel McHenry and Mary Stevens. Again I am not aware of Silas having another wife after Jane McHenry."
