Note*   Sylva is the daughter of Wiilam and Sarah Sayers or Sayr.

Her age is reported in the 1870 census (23 Jun) as 5, the 1880 (Jun 19) lists her as 15. This would probably make her birth Mar 1865 and not Mar 1864 as stated in the 1900 census. RThe 1910 census seems to agree with the 1900 census but the 1920 census lists her as 52 instead of 56. 
Note   Silvia and John were divorced for many years. She married John Riepe of Burlington, Des Moines Co., IA.
