Here is the info I have so far-
Born 2 Mar 1818 in England
Died 1 Apr 1887 in Wisconsin
Married to Eliza/Elizabeth Manwaring (b New York)
Had three children, Chantha (b 1837 New York), George W (b 1842 New York) and Elizabeth (b about 1848).
William served as a Union Soldier in Co. K, 39th Ill. Inf.
On 1850 census he is in Wisconsin, 1860 in Illinois, 1870 and 1880 he is in Wisconsin.
I seem to have hit a dead end past that.. I am trying to figure out when he came over from England or who his parents were. William Slater seems to be a very common name!
