Alexander Silver (1858-1907) married Helen Jane Watt and they had seven children. Their family was marked by tragedy with the deaths in 1905 of Helen, newborn twins William and Isabella as well as two-year-old Helen. Within two years Alex drank himself to death.
Just over a decade later, two sons, Alex and John, perished in World War 1. Only James (1898-1973) survived. He moved to Australia but did not marry.
