Slayton Family Genealogy Forum
My wife is a granddaughter of Charles Sherman Slayton, about whom you are seeking information. He was born 10/15/1887, lived and farmed in Leon, WI (about 2 miles from Sparta) most of his life and died in 1972.
Charles' father was Morey O. Slayton, born 7/1/1839 in Ohio. He was a farmer, hotelier and carpenter in Leon, WI. He married Cicilia (sp) M. Hanson in July, 1971. She was born 7/2/1849 in Norway.
FYI: One of Charles' sons was Donald K. "Deke" Slayton, one of the original seven Mercury astronauts.
