How exciting!You are right, this does get into your blood. I did some research on Roots and a Captain James Slover of the Hector of Philadelphia, can be found in the Mariners of the American Revolution page 174.This might help.
Nothing that I have researched shows where Mary or John were buried and no death dates for either.John was not in the 1850 census and the last child was born in 1845, some time during that period he died or was killed.Mary died after 1880. I wrote to the Kingston Prespyterian Church where they were married to try to find Mary's parents but, apparently there was a fire and many records were destroyed. However they did have the marriage certificate, but no mention of her or his parents.
Inspite of our distant relationship we are decendents of the orginial "Slover's".Excellent news.
Apparently in the Mable Hadler book, Susan Slover was supposed to be married to a John Stults(?) of South River but she was not.Could she have been engaged to him and then either of them then broke it off, or maybe he died?
Good Luck, let me know what you find.Thanks, Diane email@example.comYou can guess what business I am in.With the market the way it is I have a little time to play with this.If my sister were not starting a new company, she & I would drive up to NJ.We were born in East Orange, but have lived in the south most of our lives.
