Mary Ann Slatter (born 1819 in GA) came to Leon County from Alabama about 1856 with her husband, William Solomon Jackson Boykin and family. John W. Slatter (born 1814 in GA) came to Leon County from Alabama with his wife (Sophia Payne) and family sometime after the birth of his youngest child which was about 1849. Lewis Slatter (born 1826 in AL) came to Leon County from Alabama in 1856 with his second wife (Margaret Loper) and family, one of whom was born in a covered wagon about the time they arrived there. John and Lewis and their wives are buried in Parker Cemetery in Leon County and Mary's husband is buried in Boykin Chapel Cemetery in Leon County. Mary is buried in Evants County, TX, where she moved after her husband's death to live with her son. It would seem likely that these three Slatters are related and may have even all come to Leon County together at the same time. Has anyone identified a family relationship between these three people? Mary Slatter is my 3g grandmother.
