This Silus, I was told, changed the spelling of his name back to "Dean." - When they first arrived in Iowa half the family was spelling it Deen. He is buried in Iowa. However, with the addition of information on other family members, I probably have the Silus you spoke of too (see below):

First the earlier Silus Deen/Dean:

Silus Dean, Born: November 10, 1835 in Stoney Run, Lewis County, (West) Virginia, Died: July 03, 1915 in Spencer, Douglas County, Washington, Burial: 1915 in Hite Cemetery, Whiting, Monona County, Iowa
married Mary Elizabeth Martin, Born: April 15, 1841 in Lewis County, Virginia, Died: March 13, 1912 in Monona County, Iowa; Married: December 30, 1858 in Birmingham Township, Schuyler County, Illinois, Burial: 1912 in Hite Cemetery, Whiting, Monona County, Iowa

Descendants of Silus Dean:
       Columbus M. Dean
       Charles Dean
       Issac Homer Dean
       James Worthington Dean
       Asbury Dean
       Samuel L. Dean
       Edward Dean
       Arthur Dean

The other Silas, a son of Daniel & Mary Dean; a 1st cousin to the Silus Deen/Dean above:

Silas Dean; Born: 1814 in Pendleton County, (West) Virginia; married Antinet Tinny, Born: Abt. 1818; Married: May 22, 1838 in Braxton County, Virginia

       Perry Dean, Born: Abt. 1839
       Daniel Dean, Born: Abt. 1841
       Lair Dean, Born: Abt. 1843
       James Dean, Born: Abt. 1845
       Catherine Dean, Born: Abt. 1851
       Lydia Dean, Born: Abt. 1853
       Sarah Dean, Born: Abt. 1855
