My g-grandfather was Horace Slawson, the name given to him by his adoptive family. His death record states he was bornAug 17, 1897, and I was there as a child when he died of cancer in Apr 1982 (Tuxedo, NY). I cannot find any other information about him, his adoption, or who his adoptive family was. I do suspect that his birthdate is not accurate, perhaps just his date of adoption. Does anyone have family around this time that may be connected to this?
