I have a document titled "WILLIAM SLAUGHTER OF PRINCE GEORGE AND LUNENBURG COUNTIES VIRGINIA - PROGENITOR OF PIONEER CATTLEMEN OF TEXAS AND THE SOUTHWEST VOLUME TWO" by By Robert D. Taylor.

I will be happy to email you the entire document if you wish. I am a decendent of Ada Minerva Slaughter & Johnnie M. Kennedy. Ada was a sister to Willie Mae.
