Felicia, I'm sorry I didn't see your message earlier, but I have been very lax about checking my GenForum. The Slacks were (and possibly still are) prominent people in Pecos, although I didn't know but one personally. That one was Dick Slack, wife Ruby who left Pecos and lived in Presidio, Presidio county, Texas which is on the Rio Grande south of Pecos some 200+ miles. Dick was a Mobil Oil distributor in Presidio, and presumably died there. I haven't seen him since about 1957, and since he is about my father's age (born c 1900) I presume he is dead. He and my father were good friends when we lived in Presidio.
One thing I might point out. Pecos is in Reeves county Texas; not Pecos county. There should be quite a bit of information on them in Reeves county.
This probably hasn't helped you much except maybe to let you know that your people were indeed there.
