Well, I have only found out recently of this possibility in my family line. I had traced back to Walter Slaughter in Virginia 1600's but not too confident before that time. Then on the LDS site I found some early genealogy dating back to 1930's and it gave names and dates back to Eng. Then in further research, it went back to Bishop's Frome, Herfordshire. Still not positive. I am listed in the Slaughter Surname Project on FTDNA. There are several of us related in that project.
