I offer the following information regarding John's post 158. George's daughter, Milly, was Amelia, who was born 12 June, 1773 in Virginia and married Basil Smith, b 1772 in Georgia. The referrence to Boyd Smith is really Basil ( I have a copy of the deed where Basil bought land from William Slaten, George's son). The land grants that George received on headwaters of Little Beaverdam Creek in what is now Anderson Co. SC was very close to land grants Joseph Smith received on the upper part of Big Beaverdam Creek in 1785-95 period. Joseph Smith and Elizabeth Hallum Smith were the conjectured parents of Basil (Very strong circumstancial evidence, but no legal proof.)
One other item to clear up is that Willaim Slaten, son of George, daughter Elizabeth married Caleb Cartee. The Philip Porter Smith in William Slaten's estate was a son of Basil and Milly Smith.
If anyone is actively researching the Slatens, I would think that George Slaten's wife was named Amelia, and that they were married in Virginia between 1770 and 1772. This is based on the possible use of the old naming patern where the first female is named after the mother's mother and the first male is named after the father's father. George probably married someone that lived within a few miles of where he lived. The inlaws may have moved to NC with George.
I would be willing to share any information or documentation I have.
John, if you are willing to share, I would be happy to pay for copies of George's estate papers and postage. I copied most of William Slaten's estate from Anderson SC.
