Re: Marvin Slaton Yazzo County Mississippi

In Reply to: Marvin Slaton Yazzo County Mississippi by Cathy Thompson of 582

Another descendant, Becky Heaney, has been trying to connect this group. There are several lines that could have produced Marvin. He appears as Marvin E in the Holmes MS census, 1900, ed 43, page 25.

It seems most likely to me that he descends from Augustus Marion Slaton. Many of his descdants lived in Yazoo, and the E M below looks like him to me:

Slaton       S B (Sarah)       1880       SC       Cen       Yazoo       (385)              MS       1826                            (wid) mother fSC mSC              
LITCHFIEL       D Joseph       1880       AL       Cen       Yazoo       (385)              MS       1843                            hired fGA mAL              
Slaton       D L (Daniel Lavender)       1880       AL       Cen       Yazoo       (385)              MS       1856                            s S B fMS mSC              
Slaton       H T (Henry Thomas)       1880       AL       Cen       Yazoo       (385)              MS       1861                            s S B fMS mSC              
Slaton       S A (Sara)       1880       MS       Cen       Yazoo       (385)              MS       1862                            d S B fMS mSC              
Slaton       E M       1880       MS       Cen       Yazoo       (385)              MS       1879                            gs S B fAL mAL
The head of this family is Sarah B (Sloan) Slaton, widow of Augustus Marion. A M & Sarah had several sons and I suspect Marvin E is E M, listed in the census as a grandson. The loss of the 1890 census is felt here.

The probably father would be either John Thomas Slaton, James William Slaton, Daniel Lavender Slaton, or Zachariah Slaton. The H T above appears to have died fairly young, as no information has ever been found by me or presented to me by descendants. He may be a dark horse father for this man.

Hope this helps. If your interest in the Slaton family is more than casual, I can e-mail you the document with my research on this.

I do not, however, include Marvin & Annie in my treatment of these families because the connection is so fragile.
