Silas W. Haven

S. W. Haven: Furniture dealer, and one of the prominent business men of Rockford, is a native of Ludlow, Windsor County, Vt., born March 3, 1826. He was educated in his native State, and resided there until twenty years of age, when he went to Pennsylvania, and two years later removed to Winnebago County, Ill. He resided there seven years, and in 1855 came to Floyd County, Ia. Since 1856 he has been a resident of Rockford Township. He followed the carpenter's trade chiefly until 1876, when he embarked in his present business, and has met with flattering success. He served as Township Clerk for about ten years, and was elected Justice of the Peace in 1878, and has held the office to the present time. He was married in 1849, to Sarah Jane Knapp, who was born in 1829. Three children have blessed this union, viz.: Ella J., born in September 1850; Emmett M., March 30, 1854, and Laura O., Jan. 22, 1860. Mr. Haven enlisted Aug. 21, 1862 in the Twenty-seventh Iowa Infantry, and served until Aug. 8, 1865, when he was mustered out at Clinton, Ia. He participated in many of the hard fought battles of the war, and though often where shot and shell fell thickest, escaped unhurt. He is a member of the regular Baptist church, and in politics is a Republican, and a Prohibitionist.
