Hello, I found your messages (and messages from others) on the Abel Cain Slayton family.I am connected through his 2nd wife, Jane Hall of Pittsylvania County, Va., who was a Hall relative of mine.I am assembling a Hall family history and thought it would be helpful to post what I have at this time in my Hall records on Abel Cain Slayton and his 13 children.I would appreciate corrections and additions.Thanks, Robert King
