In reply to: jlp 's message, "Mar.9th~Happy 113th Birthday! Supercentenarian Nahi Yonamine, Silent Film Actor Silas Hathaway is 102, Religious Figure Erwin Schild is 101, Geneticist Evelyn M. Witkin is 100," on Monday, March 08, 09:03:55pm

Silas M. Hathaway was born Silas Merric Hathaway Jr., on March 9, 1919 in Los Angeles, California. He was the son of Silas Merric Hathaway Sr., (1888-1938) and Bonnie Louise Curtright (1895-1966).

Silas lists his birth date as March 4, 1919 on his World War 2 draft registration card, but the California Birth Index confirms the March 9th date of birth.


On February 13, 1942, Silas married Shirley J. Burgess in Russell, Alabama. Shirley, born July 22, 1923 in Los Angeles, California, died in 2015. She was either 91 or 92. I cannot confirm a date of death.

Silas, according to his gravestone, died in 2017, either at 97 or 98 years old. Likewise, I cannot confirm a date of death.

Silas and Shirley are buried in Avalon Memorial Cemetery in Avalon, California.
