I am trying to research the Slayton-Ware family in Calcasieu, Louisiana.It is difficult because my mother-in-law was a small child when both of her parents died.This is what I have: Blanchard Slayton (1898-1929)(killed in a railroad accident?) was married to Minnie Ware (1899-1937)who died in a house fire leaving four orphan children.
I believe Minnie Ware's parents were Willis (1870-?)& Laurza Ware (1870-?) - I have no other information on them.
Blanchard Slayton is not listed in any census - I only have his WWI Draft registration card and a cemetery notation.I believe his father was William "Deb" Slayton and his mother was Mary Willis(Plumblee)(this lady has a VERY interesting/confusing history what I can find).
I'm really interested in any information I can find on any of these individuals.
