Stories

Silas Dennis Frisbie was the youngest of 14 children born in South Canaan, Pennsylvania. Silas' father Solomon moved to Tennessee with his wife Charlotte and their 3 youngest children. They appear in the 1860 census District 1, Cumberland, Tennesee.

Silas' family supported the Union. Their property was seized and Silas was conscripted into the Confederate 28th Tennessee Infantry Mountain Regiment - August 6, 1861. He deserted in March 1862. On April 1, 1862 he enlisted in the Union's 23rd Kentucky Infantry.

Silas' parents, after their property was seized, returned to South Canaan, Pennsylvania.

Silas was killed at the battle of New Hope Church in Georgia - I believe his body was never recovered.

Silas' sister in Connecticut received his letters and death notice. She placed a memorial marker with their parents memorial in South Canaan Cemetery in Pennsylvania.
