I’m not sure if she was born a Slaten, Slayton, Slaton or if she was married first to a Slatten, looking for her parents information.  Thanks

Hi Donnie,

I looked around a bit, found a death certificate for her son, Harrison Manning Jones.  I uploaded it to his profile.  I also found a picture of a headstone on Ancestry.  I did not upload it as there are no sources.  I can if you like.  The stone does show her husband, his first wife and herself.  All with the birth and death years.  (It is one headstone)  I don't think she had a first husband as she is much younger than her husband and he married her after his first wife passed.  Not sure, but I think so.  Let me know if you want me to upload the pic of the headstone.

Thank you so much for helping
You are welcome.  Wish I had found more information for you.

Betty, thanks for bringing the headstone(s) to our attention, by responding to Donnie's query, I have my theory about this Sallie, as you can see in this thread.
Wish I had found more, not even a marriage certificate that I can see anywhere.  Only the death certificate linking the couple and their son helps.  Thanks for letting me know Clinton.

Donnie, my conjecture is that this Sarah/Sallie is the dau of Thomas and Nancy (Gibbs) Slaton/Slatton, that William Manning Jones was 1st mar to Mahala Ann ELROD, and produced issue by her from abt 1852 to 1859. Repeat: conjecture.

You got any birth or death dates for Thomas and Nancy Gibbs maybe I can find something to add as a source.  Thanks for helping.
Conjecture piled on conjecture, that this Thomas is Wm & Sarah (Honey) Slaton's  son, and that the Sallie who married Jones is their daughter.

Unfortunately garbled at:

Andrew Slaten on Wikitree

is a descendant of this Thomas. I would recommend that you not upload FindAGrave entries fully as if the links to other family members are primary sources, because they are not.
I don’t understand what you want me to do.
Nothing, Donnie, I was just linking you to my posted info on Thos and Nancy w dau Sarah, who I think is probably Sallie Jones, and letting you know that a descendant of Thos is a participant on WikiTree. We are trying to re-form a study group of Slaton/Slatton researchers as we used to have on, so that we can all compare notes.

And letting you know that there is a problem with copying and pasting F A G mems which include links to other family members as if it was a primary source.
Ok Thank you for helping Clinton Slayton
