While we've got some activity on the Appanoose, IA site....
My family was the SILKNITTER family of Appanoose county...
BenJ. F. SILKNITTER, b. 15 Mar 1845 and came to Centerville, IA with his parents and siblings sometime before 1850 (when they appeared on the census there).....
The Jail where Benj. F. Silknitter was Sheriff is now on the National Register of Historic Places in Centerville, Appanoose co., IA. 527 No. Main St., Centerville.
He was elected to the office of sheriff in 1876 and he filled that position for three terms.
After his 3 terms in office, he retired and put his attentions into the coal trade and operated a mine at Brazil and another at Mystic for a number of years, or until 1894, when he was again elected sheriff, serving for one term.
He was very active in the community, he served in the military, he married a local girl, Sarah Elizabeth "Sally" BELL, daughter of David and Jane (Moss) BELL ...to read more about him, go to:
