In 1860, he was a farm laborer living with his family in Buffalo Township, Perry County, Pennsylvania.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted and mustered into federal service at Carlisle February 24, 1864, as a private with Co. C, 77th Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company December 6, 1865. His brother George also served in the company, and their father joined them a year later.

After the war, he married Mary Silks and fathered Jessie (b. 02/28/69) and David (b. @1875). Mary died in 1875, and he married Amanda A. lnu, children, if any, unknown. He died in Watts Township, Perry County.

NOTE: It is highly unlikely that Abraham Liddick's middle name was "Lincoln" unless he opted to assume that name in adulthood. At Abraham Liddick's birth, the future sixteenth president of the United States was an obscure country lawyer from downstate Illinois and years away from national prominence. It strains credulity to assume that Daniel and Hannah Silks then knew anything about the future president and, therefore, had no reason to name a son in the future president's honor. By late 1860, countless newborn boys from all over the country (South excepted) would be named "Abraham Lincoln" but not in 1845.
