Samilda Wilcox was born on March 11, 1844 in Washington County, Ohio. (According to her death record, although it is more likely she was born in Belmont County.) She was the 6th of 9 children born to Absolom Carr Wilcox.

On March 7, 1861 in Washington County, she married McDonald Greathouse, the son of Solomon and Catherine (Little) Greathouse. Together McDonald and Samilda had 15 children.

(1876-1961), George Washington (1878-1960), Thomas Sherman (1879-1897), Perry Anderson (1881-1972), Unnamed Girl (1882-1882), Susanna (1884-?), William Vernon (1886-1945) and Peter (1888-?).

On April 21, 1934 at 4:15 PM she died of Heart Disease at the residence of her Daughter, Barbara, in Warren Township, Washington County, Ohio. She was buried 2 days later in Lawrence Cemetery, next to her husband who had died about 9 years earlier.
