I( have a Benjamin Silkiner in my VERY distant part of a family. I only know that his mother's maiden name was Markson--his father was Silkiner--but I do not have a first name nor any dates/[places.. It is the Marksons who are related to my Kubitsky family. Beyond that, I have no information at all on the Silkiners. Sorry to be of so little help.
