I first heard of this booklet from some of my cousins that I met on the Internet. They mentioned that this booklet existed but I could never find a copy of it. I tried in vain to contact Mrs. Edith Sooby who is well on in years and is now helped by her son. Wanita Lucas finally came to my aid and I have been able to create this electronic document from her copy of this family history booklet. Wanita also made contact with Edith’s son who kindly gave permission to post this booklet on-line. Select any of the SILVEUS links to connect to the electronic version of the booklet, which I hope can help others in finding their roots. As the future becomes the present and more information comes to light I will add that new information to this on-line document. The original information is copyrighted and listed in the Library of Congress as:

I wish to thank Edith Sooby for granting permission to reproduce this document in electronic form so more of our related families can gain the benefit of her dedicated efforts and the love of her family. Mail Comments to Return to Mike's Homestead Visitors since Dec 4, 2011
