In 1820 he was living in Ellisburg with his wife and 5 young people up to the age of 25. In 1830 he was living in Orleans, 2 homes away from Isaac Niles.

Silas was born in 1793, served in the War of 1812, got married and spent the rest of his life in Oswego County. Leonard was born in 1814, and married Isaac Niles' daughter Jane in Clayton in 1835.
