Silas married Prudence Messick on 16 Jul 1829 in , Madison, Kentucky, USA.1 2 3 (Prudence Messick was born about 1810 1 3 and died before 1860 in MO? 1 3.)


picture

Silas next married Martha Elizabeth est 1847 in , Platte, Missouri, USA.15 (Martha Elizabeth was born in 1830 in , , Missouri, USA 14.)


bullet  Marriage Notes:


No marriage information available: Eli Berry was born 8 years before Garrett, so it would seem Silas' first wife died during that period. In 1850 census, Martha Elizabeth is the new wife, son Garrett age 1, so it would appear Martha is the mother of Garrett and subsequent children for Silas.
