Slawson Family Genealogy Forum
Milton, Sorry I haven't checked this for a few days. All I have is my gggrandfather is Joseph Obediah Slawson b: 10/2/1811 NC
d: 9/14/1877 buried at Salado, TX. His wife was Julia Ann Harris b:1819 d: 1899. My line is their son Robert Allen Slawson b: 8/6/1856 d:3/21/1942 married Mary Eveline "Eva" Milliron b: 12/24/1859 d:12/23/1941.
Children are JJ, Mary, Monroe, Bill, Birdie, Allen, John, Leonard, Henry Morris, Clyde, Willard, & Alton. My line is Henry Morris Slawson. Robert & his brothers left MO, & Robert moved to Belton Co. TX. Brothers of Robert Allen were Andrew Jackson, George "Doc", John, maybe others. My dad said that he was told that the Slawson's changed the spelling of their name everytime they got caught stealing horses. Could be hear say. That's about all I know. Thanks Milton for your help.
