:These transcribers imagine that Silas dictated this will and then attempted to sign it himself but even his signature has a problem. He was 82 years old when he signed the will. Much discussion and research has been attempted to try to determine relationships to all the folks mentioned. All are known except Marietta Willits and Jane KolleyColley. On the 1860 census (see above) Silas was living with the family of Samuel and Myrtilla/Myrilla Patterson. So far no family relationship between Silas and either Samuel or Myrtilla has been found. The handwriting and spelling is bad and perhaps that 'Marietta' was supposed to be Marilla or Myrtilla???.

Alinas Cole and Silas D. Cole who witnessed the will are grandsons of Silas, the sons of his daughter Sarah Jackson and Ezekiel Cole Jr.

:: 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.".

The line breaks in the above document are the transcriber's and were not in the original document. This transcriber imagines that Silas dictated this will and then attempted to sign it himself but even his signature has a problem. He was 82 years old when he signed the will. Much discussion and research has been attempted to try to determine relationships to all the folks mentioned. All are known except Marietta Willits and Jane KolleyColley. On the 1860 census (see above) Silas was living with the family of Samuel and Myrtilla/Myrilla Patterson. So far no family relationship between Silas and either Samuel or Myrtilla has been found. The handwriting and spelling is bad and perhaps that 'Marietta' was supposed to be MarillaMyrtilla???.
 
-
Alinas Cole and Silas D. Cole who witnessed the will are grandsons of Silas, the sons of his daughter Sarah Jackson and Ezekiel Cole Jr.
 
-
Silas married his first wife, Jane, in Columbia County, Pennsylvania and she bore him three children, Mary, Sarah and John. Jane died in 1805 the same day that John was born. In 1808 Silas married Mary Peterman and judging by the dates of the birth of their children, the family moved to Knox County, Ohio sometime between 1826 and 1829. Silas' father, Daniel, had moved to Knox Co, Ohio in 1831. The land record above shows his buying 80 acres in Ohio in 1835. In 1850 Silas and Mary are still in Knox County, Ohio and the children have all left the family home. But by 1860 Silas is back in Columbia County living with the Pattersons. He writes his will in June 1863 in Columbia County and in Nov of 1863 Mary dies in Knox County. Silas drowned September, 1864 in Fishing Creek, Columbia County, Pennsylvania (pg 75 OBR).

'''Note:''' Silas' father Daniel moved from Morris Co, NJ in abt 1786, so Silas, although born in NJ, apparently grew up in Northumbland Co, PA.

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.".
