The Vermont Journal, June 25, 1861
Capt. Daniel Sillie, (sic) Co. I, 4th, Vt. Vet. Vol. Reg., died from effects of wound in shoulder June 6th. He was wounded in the battle of the wilderness May 5th, but his wound did not seem doing well and an operation was performed upon his shoulder after which he continued to decline. He was a man respected much, a brave and efficient officer in the field. He was respected most by those who knew him best, his remains were sent to his friends in Bradford, Vermont.
