About Our Family Research

Our branch of the Slater Family can be traced back to a John Slaughter of Killingly, CT., in the early 1700's We have no definite proof of where in Great Britain John came from, but the verbal tradition is the Severn River are of England/Wales. There is also a question as to who his wife was. Some say Abiah Bartlett, and other believe it was Mary Libby. The family dropped the "ugh" which in England had the sound of 'f' as in cough, rough, laughter, etc. and eventualy the 'f' was dropped making it Slater. They were prominent in Norwich, VT., and were benefactors of Dartmouth College. Members of the family moved to Lewis & Jefferson Counties in upstate New York in the early 1800's. My grandfather Frederick E Slater was a professional photographer. My gt. grandfather Vincent was listed in the 1870 census of Rutland Twp., as being a (blacksmith & iron finisher)
