I have since confirmed that Xury's parents were Barnett Peters and Abra Slocum who were married in Adams, Mass on 29 Jan 1795. Barnett's parents were William and Mary Peters. Abra Slocum is the enigma at this point. There are many Slocums to track in Adams, Mass, none of whom seem to "claim" Abra. Perhaps Abra is a nickname, though that is what she is called on the marriage certificate and in the Quaker Records. Furthermore, all of the named Slocum females married - not to Barnett Peters.
