Silas Wilson Morrell was born in Cottonwood, Salt Lake County, Utah, to William Wilson and Sarah Jane Richards.

He married Virginia Morrell while living at Union Fort. Virginia died on August 2, 1875. The actual cause of death is unknown, but it is suspected that she died during or shortly after childbirth. Because it is known that an infant daughter of this couple died during this time period. He moved to Rabbit Valley (Wayne County) with his father in 1876.

On July 12, 1876, he married Luzernia Allred in Fremont, Utah. She was the daughter of Andrew Jackson and Chloe Stevens Allred and was born on April 27, 1857 in Spring City, Utah. They had seven children.

Silas and his wife, Luzernia, owned a farm just east of Fremont where they built a two-story, log house. They also had a dairy farm east of Fish Lake, later known as Silas Springs where in the early summer they herded milk cows to the mountain spring to graze during the warm months.

While working his father's sawmill Silas was injured, severely hurting his back and was unable to do manual labor after the accident. He never recovered his health completely and died in Fremont, Utah.
