Looking for info on Civil War veteran Robert Samuel Slaymaker, who served in Companies A & H, as well as sergeant-major, of the 87th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. The regiment mustered in York in September 1861. Slaymaker was discharged on a surgeon's certificate September 17, 1863. He was born in Lancaster October 16, 1838, the son of Samuel Robert and Anna Maria Smith Slaymaker. While he lived much of his youth in Lancaster and York, he bounced around the country after the war (including 1869 - 1870 working for Cragen Brothers in Chicago) and died November 30, 1900, in Kittanning, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. He married C. Jane Oswald April 25, 1866, but she died; remarried Elizabeth "Lizzie" Kuhns Bowman May 25, 1871; children: Agnes Bowman (b. 07/11/75); no others known
