      1-1. SAMUEL SLATER1 was born October 11, 1798 in Virginia. He was the son of William Slater and Eleanor Claypool, who were married April 10, 1786. He was the grandson of Thomas Slater and Sarah Williams, who were married March 10, 1760. He was the great grandson of Elias Slater and Sarah Bussing, who were married August 30, 1718 in New Harlem, New York. He was the great great grandson of John Slater and Abiah Gillett, who were married July 15, 1669. John died May 13, 1713 and Abiah died November 21, 1716 in Simbury, Connecticut.
      Samuel came to Richland County, Ohio when he was young.

      The 1820 census does not list any Samuel Slaters in Ohio. The census was probably taken in the summer before he was married. There were four Slaters listed in Richland County: Isaac Slater in Washington Township, James Slater in Perry Township, John Slater in Orange Township (present-day Ashland County), and William Slater in Monroe Township. William was the only one having a male of Samuel's age living with him.

      Samuel married MARGARET WILSON on November 23, 1820 in Richland County, Ohio (marriage book 1, page 84; some county marriage indexes incorrectly say it was 1821. From Richland County records: "The state of Ohio, Richland County --- I certify that on the 23rd of November last I joined together in matrimony Samuel Slater and Margaret Wilson both of the County aforesaid. Given under my hand and head this 10th day of January AD 1821. Nicholas Flaharty").

      Margaret was born December 7, 1800 in Virginia. Margaret also came to Richland County when she was young. The 1820 census lists eight Wilson families in Richland County with a female of Margaret's age living with them. The three that lived closest to William Slater were William Wilson in Monroe Township and John Wilson and John Wilson Jr. in Worthington Township just to the south. John Wilson Sr. seems the most likely candidate for Margaret's father, since in the other two households Margaret would have had to be the lady of the house. John Wilson still lived in Worthington Township in the 1830 and 1840 censuses.

      In the 1830 census Samuel was listed living in Worthington Township, Richland County, Ohio with one male age 0-4 (John), two males age 5-9 (Sanford, William), one male age 30-39 (Samuel), two females age 0-4 (Eliza and Sarah), one female age 5-9 (Ellen), one female age 10-14 (Malinda), and one female age 30-39 (Margaret).

      They lived there until 1834, when they moved to Williams County, Ohio, where they lived the rest of their lives. They settled near Clarksville, a town that no longer exists, which was south of Edgerton in present-day Milford Township, Defiance County, along the St. Joseph River, a quarter mile south of the present county line, and two miles east of the Ohio-Indiana border. Samuel was the first settler of Milford Township. He was the first justice of the peace for St. Joseph Township, commissioned January 1, 1836 and sworn in February 22, 1836.

      Samuel made a government land purchase through the Fort Wayne, Indiana land office on November 30, 1836.

      In 1837 Samuel was listed in Milford Township on the Williams County property tax list.

      In the 1840 census Samuel was living in Milford Township, Williams County with three males age 0-4 (Luther, Lyman, and Leonard), two males age 5-9 (Thomas and Edward), one male age 10-14 (John), two males age 15-19 (Sanford, William), one male age 40-49 (Samuel), one female age 5-9 (Sarah), one female age 10-14 (Eliza), one female age 15-19 (Ellen), and one female age 30-39 (Margaret). Milford Township became a part of Defiance County when it was established on March 4, 1845 from parts of Williams, Henry, and Paulding Counties. Samuel was listed as a voter in Milford Township in October 1845.

      In the 1850 census (taken September 7th) Samuel was listed in St. Joseph Township, Williams County with his wife Margaret (age 51), and children John (age 22), Sarah (age 20), Thomas (age 18), Edward (age 16), Luther (age 14), Lyman (age 12), Leonard (age 11), Samuel (age 9), and Willson (age 4), and also his daughter Eliza Tucker (age 23) with her children John (age 3, listed as born in Virginia) and Ellen (age 8 months), and Susannah Slater (age 20).

      Samuel died October 1, 1850 near Clarksville, Ohio. Samuel's will was dated September 30, 1850 and accepted into probate on October 7, 1850 (Williams County Probate case no. 217). The will left everything to Margaret so long as she did not remarry. If she remarried, his estate was to be divided among his children. Leander C. Noble was appointed the executor. He was authorized to sell 80 acres of land -- 40 acres in the northwest quarter of the northeast quarter of section 33 and 40 acres adjoining it in the northeast quarter of the northwest quarter of section 33 (which in 1864 was owned by J. T. Russell).

      Leander Noble's expenses for administering the estate totaled $46.93: $3.38 for paying clerk "as per voucher", $10.00 for S. E. Beabesle(?), $1.50 to (?) to (?) will, $10.68 for 6% on $198, $1.50 for going to Bryan to sell land, $1.50 for going to Bryan to prove will, $1.50 for going to Bryan to pay taxes, $1.50 for notifying judges, $1.50 for going to Bryan twice, $1.37 for publishing the final account, $6.00 for probate judges fees, and $5.00 charges for special services as administrator.

      He paid $158.61 for debts owed to creditors: $2.00 for S. B. Gayalt(?), $8.07 for J. Avery, 75p???c for Asa Ackley, $28.80 for Daniel Farnham, $38.51 for Solomon Stough (Samuel's doctor), $31.39 for William Bratton, $5.21 for Michael Upp, $3.12 for Jacob Nieghart(?), $11.05 for the county treasurer, $11.04 for Case & Foster (lawyers), $5.00 for Norman Smith, $6.71 for "amount of hay notes retained," $27.62 "retained my account," $5.04 for G. C. Nobles account, 75p???c for William Street, $2.00 for A. W. Wilcox, and $6.19 for Jared Stoddard, administrator of the estate of Samuel Holton.

      The receipt for the money due to the Holton estate was dated October 14, 1839 and promised payment of $3.57 in nine months by either Samuel or Jared A. Ball to Jared Stoddard.

      The town of Edgerton in St. Joseph Township was platted in 1858.

      In the 1860 census Margaret was living in St. Joseph Township with sons Leonard, Samuel, Wilson, and with Rose Slater (age 10).

      In the 1870 census Margaret was 70 years old and living in St. Joseph Township with her grandson Samuel Slater (age 6, son of John).

      Margaret died August 9, 1877 near Clarksville, Ohio. The Williams County Probate Index lists Margaret's will, dated August 14, 1877 (case no. 1937).

      Samuel and Margaret are both buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Edgerton. They share a stone with their son Lyman. Samuel's inscription is on the west side and gives his death date and age: "Died Oct. 1, 1850 Aged 51Y. 11M. 20D." and a quote: "There again I hope to meet you above no [one or two indistinct words] tears are shed." Margaret's inscription is on the north side and says "Wife of S. Slater Died Aug. 9, 1877 Aged 76Y. 9M. 2D."

      Subject: Thomas Slater's burial place

      I don't think I've noticed Thomas Slater's burial place mentioned in any of your web pages. I was at the Fort Wayne library a few days ago and I looked through the cemetery listings for Adams County, Iowa and found that he is buried in Stringtown Cemetery in Grant Township, in or near the town of Stringtown. I also looked at the marriage index and found no Slater marriages listed during the time that the family would have been living in Adams County.
