Mr Slauson, I was looking through old post and found this one. Melissa is my cousins wife and I thought you might could help me. My name is Tammie Slawson and I am the daughter of James W. Slawson Jr that she mentioned in her post. My granfathers name was James W. Slawson Sr. He was from MS and died here in Mobile AL in 1970. He was married to Emma Marie (Lois) Stewart also from MS. His fathers name was John Alfred Slawson and he died in MS in the late 1970's early 1980's. I do believe that when he died he was 99. I could find out the exact date. He was married twice. My father could not remember his grandmothers given name he just knew they called her mamie. His second wife was Bessie Slawson. I know that my grandfather had a brother named Melvin (Dick) Slawson also from MS. His wife's name was Alice. I also believe there was a brother named John and a sister that they called Johnnie. I have found John Alfred Slawson on some things but can't get any further. My father doesn't seem to know very much about his gg grandparents. Any help you could give me would be very much appreciated.
