Silkwood Family Genealogy Forum
I have the a lot of following information on Silkwoods. Some is listed below. If anyone needs more, let me know and I'll see if I can help:
(1) Silkwood, b. 1738 in England.
(2) Solomon Silkwood b. 5/23/1759, England; died 1832, Clinton County, Il
Barzilla Silkwood, b. 1763. VA, died about May 1817.
My 3rd great grandparents were Myra Hicks Breedlove and William Warren Gage (who died in 1864 (both of Missouri). They had only son, William Thomas Gage was 6 mos. old when his father died),
Myra's 2nd marriage was to Thomas P. Silkwood (Thomas Simpson (4), Thomas H (3), Barzilla (2), ___Silkwood(1)) on 11-6-1869 in Benton, Arkansas.
Thomas P. Silkwood's family moved from Kansas after the grasshoppers ate all crops. Thomas and Myra had the following children (in addition to WW Gage's & Myra son):
Author Dire "Diah" Silkwood b. 10-12-1875 d. 4-1-1953 m. Jennie Zeruah "Ruah" Murphy
Hattie May Silkwood (born 6-20-1876) d. 2/21/1905)who married Thomas Hanes, 2nd to TIm LInder. Question if she's daughter of Myra's third husband (William A. Saunders/Sanders).
George S. Silkwood b. 1877 ("stepchild")
Thomas Riley Silkwood (b. 2/18/ 1879) in ARkansas and died 9-28-1940, Fresno, CA. and married Myrtle Wilma Compton June 30, 1898 in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Does anyone know the following:
1) Is Thomas P. Silkwood's middle name "Pim" as seen in his ancestors?
2) Does anyone know more of Myra Breedlove's marriage to William Warren Gage (my 3rd great grandfather) or anything about the Gages? I can't find his father. Supposedly they both were from Missouri and this Gage family may have come from "the south". He died or traveled to Arkansas, Indian Territory, and Jack County, Texas.
