Abel Cain Slayton was my great, great, great grandfather.

According to records compiled by my aunt and a friend of hers over the past 15-10 years, I have the following information on Abel Cain:
"....He died 27 Feb 1864 in Pocahontas, Randolph County, Arkansas.Abel died during the Civil War.Is has been stated by family members that he was hung for Union sympathies."
The compilation goes on to say:
"Cleo, my grandmother stated that she remebers someone saying he was hung for stealing or letting some horses go"
*Please note, when it says "my" above, that is the quote from the compilers.My grandmother's name is not Cleo.
I realize this isn't anything totally affirmative, but I do hope this helps.
