  • Notes 
    • a thrifty farmer with an estate of some $60,000 at time of death (killed by railroad car); a volunteer preacher of predestinarianism; held no salaried pastorate. Two of his sons were bankers, had 11 children and about 25 grandchildren.
      In three census records there is a Silas H. Moffit living in Edgar Co,IL (1859,60,80). He is also listed in the Death Register, Edgar Co, IL, 1910-1915, p 189, at the time of the death of his son. Also, in the #7 Death Register, p 483, when he died. He is listed as a farmer. Whether or not this is the same Silas who was buried in Owens Co, Indiana, we don't know.
