During a recent email exchange with a recently discovered 4th cousin, I heard a family story about the death of Abel Cain Slayton (our g-g-g-grandfather), on February 27, 1864. According to my new cousin, he had heard from the Slayton side of his family that Abel Cain Slayton was murdered while plowing his field in Randolph County, Arkansas (near Noland). Apparently, Abel Cain did not want his younger sons fighting in the Civil War, and a group of men confronted him on his land and murdered him during this confrontation.
I was wondering if anyone on this Forum has ever heard this story before and if so could you share what you have heard as well?
