I have Silas Dean Mawyer born 1882 and died 1968. His father was Silas Dean Sr. born 1855 and married in 1877 to Mary Ellen Morris. Silas Dean Sr. was son of Childress Smith Mawyer born 1816 married in 1843 to Margaret Ann McClain. Childress was the son of John A Mawyer born 1792 married Ailcey (Alice) Smith in 1812. I hope this helps. If I can help in any way with the Mawyer line please let me know.
