      My Grandfather -

      Silas was born in Tennessee as were his father and grandfather before him. As a young man he went north to Minnesota and South Dakota working as a chef for many places.

      He registered for the military during WWI but was not called to duty.

      He married Hannah Ericka O'Brink and had 3 children in Minnesota. Their oldest died as a toddler in a tragic house fire.

      Silas and Hannah eventually separated and he married his second wife, Martha Elaine Wiitala. They had 6 children together.

      In the early 50's, Silas and his second family moved closer to his roots and settled in Arkansas. He lived out his remaining years there.
