From: "An Island Refuge" -
John and his brother, Joseph, were the survivors of the vessel "Union" which was wrecked off of Halifax. Their first cousin, Jacob, was master of the vessel."

John and Joseph moved to the western part of the Island from Bedeque and settled in Knutsford about 1855. Captain John and Ellen obtained a block of about 600 acres of land between the O'Leary Road and Boulter Road. The house and barn still stand. The first house was built with split shingles and wooden pegs to hold the rafters together. The family traveled seven miles to West Cape School in an ox cart. The Sillikers donated land and lumber for the Methodist Church in Knutsford, and also for the first school. Captain John and Ellen Silliker had a large family, six sons and five or six daughters.
