Silas Partrick (1799 - 1880)

Silas Partrick, my fourth great-grandfather, was born September 20, 1799 in Connecticut to Halsey Partrick and Phebe Lockwood Partrick.  I have calculated his birth date from the information about his date of death and age as listed in the Birth, Marriage, Death Index 1867 - 1880 for the Town of Wilton, Connecticut.  Silas married Clarissa Bates around 1820 based on the date of birth of their oldest child.

Silas worked as a shoemaker and was a resident of Wilton, Connecticut.  After Clarissa died in 1860, Silas, his son Burr, and Burr's family lived together in Wilton.

Silas died October 20, 1880 from dropsy and heart disease according to Wilton town records.  He is buried in Zion's Hill Cemetery next to Clarissa.  Silas died intestate according to (Norwalk) Connecticut probate records.  Aaron M. Reed was appointed administrator of Silas' estate on November 24, 1880.
