My family, the SILKNITTER's (sometimes spelled 'SILKNETTER' ) lived in
Centerville, IA from 1850 on. My g-grandfather, Benjamin F. SILKNITTER was
Sheriff at one time and I have heard there are some mines named after him.
His son, my grandfather, Richard O. SILKNITTER was born there in 1889 and
went to school there. Would there be school pictures?
I did not grow up with my father's family, the Silknitters and I am anxious
to learn all I can about them and Appanoose county.
