SILOME (f): Silome Hurd, b. Woodbury, Conn. 29 Dec. 1715, daughter of Benjamin and Hannah (Cothren 3:15), may have been named not for the Salome who caused such trouble for John the Baptist, but for the Pool of Siloam, in Jerusalem, which, according to the Gospel of John, was said to have healing powers. Or “Silome” could be a mistake for the name SILENCE.
