I'm also a descendant of Jesse D & Addie Kinney Slawson, through their son Seth. I have names and dates on the ancestors back to England, from the old red Slawson/
Slosson/Slauson etc book, but no real information beyond that. I have no date of death for Jesse D. or Addie and don't know where either is buried. I don't know which relative of Seth's advised him to go to northeastern KS (Jefferson County) to earn a living after they were driven out of Nebraska by the grasshopper plagues.
In the old Jefferson County newspapers, I find frequent references to a Swift Slawson, apparently a different person from Seth, since one item mentions both of them. Who is Swift? Is this a nickname? What is the relationship?
