  • Notes 
    • Sylvester and his family lived in Perry Twp., Brown Co., Ohio in 1850. Sometime between 1853 and 1859 they moved to Selby Township of Bureau Co., Illinois where they appear in the 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses.

      By 1900 he is remarried to Margaret and has been for 14 years. Probably his first wife died. He does not appear in censuses after that. [2, 3, 7]
