Silas Northup
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1811
Death: Mar. 20, 1885
South Kingstown
Washington County
Rhode Island, USA

Silas was the sixth of seven known children born to Benjamin Northup and Ruth Austin of South Kingstown, Rhode Island. He was married about 1835 to Mary Sherman GARDNER, the daughter of Hyman and Mary Gardner. He is found in the 1850, 1870, and 1880 federal censuses in South Kingstown, and his widow appears in the 1885 Rhode Island state census in S. Kingstown. Children from the 1850 and 1870 censuses:

*Silas R., b. 1836

*Stephen G., b. 1846. The Mary G. Northup, b. 1847, with him in the 1870 census is likely his wife, rather than his sister.

The burial locations for Silas and Mary Northup have not been determined, but it is not unreasonable that they would be buried in the Stephen Northup Lot in Moorsfield, where their son, Silas, is buried, and where Silas has an aunt and an uncle buried as well.
