Biography

SILAS LAROCK, son of John Larock and Julia Lumbra, was born in Montgomery, Vt., 1840. When the call came for nine months' men he caught the war fever and enlisted in Berkshire and joined Company G, 13th Vermont. He loved his country and served her well. As a soldier he was faithful, steady, obedient to superiors and respected by his comrades. After his term of service expired he was drafted October 7th, 1863, and was assigned to Company G, 5th Regiment, Vermont Volunteers. After the war he married Elizabeth Lumbra, in 1867. The fruits of this marriage were seven children, Frank, Willie, Mary, Jessie, Sadie, Jennie, Bennie. These children are married and reside in and near Montgomery. Silas was a good father and loving husband and a respectful citizen. After a lingering illness he passed away in 1887. After a widowhood of four years his wife married again and is now residing in Montgomery, Vt.
