SLOUGH HENRY CLAY, farmer, Sec. 13, P. O. Peoria. Son of Jacob and Ann Elizabeth Slough, nee Cype, was born in the city of Peoria, September 23, 1836. When he was about twelve years of age his parents removed to Richwoods township, where he grew to manhood. On the 26th of July, 1857, he married Miss Maria, daughter of Isaac and Abigail Pratt, who was born in Peoria county, January 30, 1839, and soon after removed to their present resident. On the 2d of September, 1862, Mr. Slough enlisted in Co. E, 77th Illinois, and served three years in defense of the Union, fourteen months of which time was spent in the rebel prison at Camp Worth, Texas, where he suffered all the tortures coarse and scanty rations could bring. He and his comrades were released from that prison pen on the 17th of May, 1865; reaching Springfield about the 2d of June, and were allowed to come home to spend the Fourth with their families and friends. They went back to Springfield on the 5th and were mustered out on the 6th. Since them Mr. S. has engaged in improving is farm and adding, by purchase to its original acreage. He now owns 160 acres, valued at $40 an acre. He is Republican in politics, and liberal in religious belief.
