Descendants of Weimar and Margaret (Rafferty) Siler are invited to submit their family milestones -- births, deaths, marriages-- before the upcoming family meeting on 7 August.
All births, deaths, and marriages are being recorded and kept by the Outreach Committee, and it is very helpful for the committee to have the events sent to them in advance. It helps ensure accuracy of dates, ages, and accuracy of spelling of names. That is often difficult to hear at the meeting itself.
Go to www.silerdescendants.org and look at the menu across the top of the page. Go to "Family Records" and click, then follow the link to report either a birth, a marriage, or a death that happened in the past year. Please fill in as much of the forms as possible.
Remember, branches refer to the children of Weimar and Margaret:
Esther Siler, who married David Lowry;
Elizabeth Siler, who married Jacob Weaver;
William Siler, who married Althea Swain;
Jesse Richardson Siler, who married Harriet Dorothy Patton;
Jacob Siler, who married 1) Matilda Swain and 2) Mary T. Highsmith;
Margaret Siler, who married Martin A. Gash;
John Siler, who married Mary "Polly" McKee;
Mary Gleaves Siler, who married John A. Henley.
Weimar and Margaret also had a son, Thomas, who died very young and unmarried. No children.
If you NOT a descendant of one of Weimar's children, please do not fill in the forms.
