Can anyone tell me who the parents were of MARY A. STEFFEY who married WILLIAM B. SLAUGHTER?
WILLIAM was the brother of my great great grandmother MARTHA A. "MATTIE" SLAUGHTER.He was a deputy sheriff in Erath Co., TX.Born 1844 and died 1886.His wife MARY A. STEFFEY was born c1858 in TX according to the 1880 census.
On the 1880 Federal Census, Erath Co., TX can be found a T. B. STEFFEY living with WILLIAM and MARY.He was 18 yrs. old, listed as WILLIAM'S brother-in-law and was born in IN.Both MARY'S and T. B.'S father was born in IN.
In searching the internet, it looks to me like her father was JEFFERSON or JAMES JEFFERSON STEFFEY, but I'm not sure.
