Birth: 1770
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1812

Held to have never married.

David Tyler:

I doubt if Richard Slack married at all, as his father left all moveable property, house furniture, with all my stock goods and chattels and 100 acres of land (to Richard and his mother). If he was married, he married in Pa. But he [Randolph] named his son, Randal Slack, as guardian for Richard Slack, which makes me wonder if he [Richard] was mentally incompetent. In that case, Richard Slack never married.

Since Richard was not named among the heirs to Randal Slack; Sr. in the sale of the inherited land in 1821 (I think this was the land that was his and his mother's until they died), it is presumed that he had died prior to this time.

Seen to have paid taxes in Nelson Co KY 1788 (562-3, 280-5); named in his father's will of 20 Feb 1795, but his brother Randal was appointed his guardian (meaning what at age 25?)
