Silas Gore of Rome 
Silas Gore Jr. was born in 1829 in Rome, PA, to Silas Sr. and Catherine Elliot Gore. He was a blacksmith by trade and married Jerusha Jane Tuttle (1841-1922) about 1859. They had one child, a daughter, Sarah Alice (Adella) Gore. Silas came from a long line of patriots, having lost 5 members of his family in the infamous Wyoming Massacre of 1778. Silas was also in the Gore family line that included Obadiah and Samuel Gore, both judges in Bradford County. Silas' family also paid dearly in the Civil War, with the family losing Silas' brothers Samuel, John and ultimately Silas himself in the Battle of Gettysburg, July 2, 1863. He fought with the 141st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, a regiment raised mainly in Bradford and Susquehanna Counties. He is buried in the National Cemetery in Gettysburg in an unmarked grave. Silas' widow Jerusha went on to marry 3 more times and outlived all of her husbands, and spent her last years living off Silas' Civil War pension. His daughter Sarah married Charles Lent and moved out West after 1880. 
The attached photo of him was taken just prior to the Civil War.
