Surnames: Syllaboch, Syllabach, Sillebough, Bowman, Kent, Voorhees, McGraw, Woolever, Smith
Anna Bowman is my gr-gr grandmother (b.8/15/1852-d.4/28/1913). Anna's parents are David and Mary Kent Bowman. After searching through old obituraries, I found that Anna had five sisters and two brothers. Her brothers are Sylvester and Jacob. Her sisters are Mrs. Tim Collins, Mrs. William (Ada) Cress, Mrs. Ernest Smith, Mrs. Jacob Syllaboch, and Mrs. Charles Bowman. Anna married my gr-gr grandfather, Jacob Syllaboch, and had two children with Jacob: Mary Syllaboch Voorhees, and Richard Syllaboch. Mary Syllaboch Voorhees is my gr-grandmother. Jacob Syllaboch's children from his marriage to his first wife, Nancy Stauring (B. 1833 D. 1870) are John, Jacob, William, Eva Syllaboch Woolever and Delia Syllaboch Smith.

Richard Syllaboch (b.1884-d.1958) married Bertha Smith on 9/16/1908. Bertha Smith's parents are Joseph and Catherine Syllaboch. Richard was married to Maybelle Ouittrim (b.6/22/1896-d.9/19/1957). Next to Maybelle's place of burial is Enid Raymonda (b. 1914-d.1962). Enid is Maybelle's daughter. Enid was married to Buster Raymonda who ran the Creekside Restaurant in the town of Ohio.

Mary Syllaboch Voorhees married Harrison Voorhees. They had four daughters: Leta, Laura, Flora, and Frances. Leta was married to a Folts. Laura Voorhees is my grandmother who married Arthur McGraw.

Jacob Syllaboch (b.10/17/1831-d.9/24/1924) had brothers by the name of John (b.4/15/1820-d.2/6/1891) and William (b.?-d.9/3/1864). William was a Civil War veteran, member of the 152nd regiment, Private, Company A who was wounded during the Wilderness Campaign, Deep Bottom, Strawberry Plains and died from his wounds. A resident of Herkimer, NY. I'm not sure about other siblings that Jacob may have had. I found information on a John Syllaboch who was in the War of 1812. John Syllaboch is my gr-gr-gr grandfather and the father of Jacob, John & William. Researching even further back to the late 1700's in what is now Herkimer County, Herkimer, NY, I found the name of Christayane Sillebough (variable spelling of Syllaboch) had two sons John Sillebough and Richard Sillebough. Christayane is my gr-gr-gr-gr grandfather. Christayane was in the Tryon County Militia, 3rd regiment. Variable spellings of Syllaboch are Syllabach and Sillebough. All of the above information came from historical documents. I apologize if I have missprinted any of the information. I am very interested in searching for relatives who may have more information on the family names I have mentioned. I am also interested in photos.
