I checked your message history so I could learn something about your grandmother's family. You need to include names, dates (or approximate dates) and locations for others to be able to help you. (^_^)

You said you learned Theodore Slay was son of John Morgan Slay in response to someone's post on the Slay family. I checked that submitter's history and found enough to go looking for John Morgan Slay.

1920 census Talladega Co, AL:

Slay, J. M., h, 55, md, b GA, GA, GA
" Sarah F., wf, 45, md, b AL, AL, AL
" Buelah May, d, 21, sgl, b AL
" Seaborn (?), s, 18, sgl, b AL
" L_____, d, 13, b AL
" Anthony, s, 11, b AL
" Theodore, s, 9, b AL
" Andrew J., s, 5, b AL
[several Morgan families near John, willing to bet they are kin and his mother might have been a Morgan, hence his middle name of Morgan.]

1910 census Talladega Co, AL:

Slay, John M., h, 47 M(1) 12 yrs, b GA, GA, GA
" Sallie, w, 35, M(1) 12 yrs, 5 ch, 5 lvg, b AL, AL, AL
" Buelah, d, 11, b AL
" Cebern[sic], s, 9, b AL
" Gordon, s, 6, b AL
" Linnie, d, 4, b AL
" Anthony, s, 1 2/12, b AL

1900 census DeKalb Co, AL:

Slay, John, h, b Sep 1865, 35, M 2 yrs, b GA, GA, GA
" Sarah F., w, b Feb 1875, 25, M 2 yrs, b AL, AL, AL
" Bulah[sic] M., d, b Jan 1899, 1, b AL

1880 census Marietta, Cobb Co, GA - looks like a "possible" match:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Jessie SLAY Self W Male W 60 NC Farmer NC NC
Sarah DICKERSON Dau W Female W 28 GA Keeping House NC GA
Thomas SLAY Son S Male W 19 GA Laborer On Farm NC GA
John SLAY Son S Male W 16 GA Laborer On Farm NC GA
Robret SLAY Son S Male W 14 GA Laborer On Farm NC GA
Sarah E. DICKERSON1 GDau S Female W 4 GA At Home GA GA

If that is the right family, then here they are on the 1870 census Cobb Co, GA:

Slay, Jessie, 45, b GA - no land/personal 150
" Katie, 42, b GA
" William, 20, b GA
" Jane, 17, b GA
" Thomas, 12, b GA
" (Mittie ?), 13, b GA
" John, 8, b GA
" Robert, 6, b GA

1860 census Cobb Co, GA:

Slay, Jesse, 40, b GA - no land/pers 100
" Catharin, 4?, b GA
" W.A., 12, b GA (male)
" S.J., 10, b GA (female)
" M.M., 8, b GA (f)
" J.T., 1, b GA (m)

Now, if you would like to give us something on your "Grandmother Slay, nee Barker" maybe we can find something on her family, too. Her given name, and anything else you can think of. (^_^)
