Silas Reuben Lauhon born 3/28/1826 in SC
Silas is a 2nd greatgrandfather of my husband.Silas supposedly was born on March 28, 1826 in SC.He married Maachah Gibson in 1851 and he died September 8, 1904 in Wilmar, Drew County, AR and is buried in the Rock Springs Cemetery in Drew County.
During the Civil War, he served from 1861 to April 1865 as a Medic in the Confederate Army. When he was discharged, he opened up a medical practice in Drew County and doctored people for over thirty years until his death.
If anyone knows who his parents might be or any more information about Silas, I would appreciate hearing from you either in this forum or at my e-mail address.
