Louisa Hays & Amie Silcott

Peregrine Hays and George Silcott were prominent businessmen before the Civil War. Hays was sheriff of Calhoun County and Silcott county clerk. In 1861, they helped form the Moccasin Rangers. After truce they helped arrange in May 1862 was revoked, the two were captured and sent to Camp Chase. Although later paroled, Hays and Silcott continued to aid the confederacy.

Perry Hays and George Silcott were
married to sisters Loulsa and Amie
Sexton. During the war, Louisa ran
the Hays farm in Calhoun, raising
livestock and grain. She reportedly
took horses, money, and goods to
her husband in Confederate areas.
Amie acted as county clerk in her
husband's name, issuing at least a
dozen marriage licenses. She later
joined the men in Monroe County.
