Still trying to determine lineage up. Possibly a son of a George W Slaton Jr from Monroe Co TN, who died ca 1863-4, probably in MS as soldier in 62nd reg of 80th TN Mounted Inf, CSA.
But this reported birth date and location do not accord with the reported birth date of George W of 1838 in TN. In Wesley's Chapel in this same county, Presswoods are buried, children of Bethany and Josiah Presswood. Bethany/Bethana is suspected to be Bethany Dodd, the widow of George W Slaton Jr, as one of her children's death cert reports her father as "Geo W Slayton b TN" mother Unknown. But her mother is known to be Bethany. If George W Slaton can be confirmed to be older than a single census report b 1838, then this would be more defensible as a conjecture.
