Re: SLOCUM in NY
I find a Ward Omer Slocum, born May 19, 1859 who was the son of Clark Slocum, born April 23, 1823 in Conn. (?), and was reared from the age of 8 years in Andover and Troupsburgh, N.Y. He married in Hornellsville, June 28, 1858 to Mary E. Foster, daughter of Henry and Sarah (Butts) Foster of Greenwood, N.Y. and formerly of New Jersey where she was born Oct. 16, 1818. They settled in Greenwood, Steuben Co., N.Y. where they were living in 1882.
Clark was the son of Henry Slocum 8 (Lyman 7; Benjamin 6; Abraham 5; Ebenezer 4; Eliezer 3; Giles 2; Philip 1).
I can take you all the way back to Philip, if you need the info, but I can not take you any further with Ward, if this is the person you are looking for.
