Mary Jane Derry

Mary Jane Derry


Basil's-1820 younger sister, MARY JANE DERRY (b.1827 d. 1892) married ANDERSON SLATER (1820-1889) and is the g~g~grandfather of researcher, ANDY SLATER.

"JACOB-1795 (Basil and Mary Jane's father) was living with a FRANK SLATER, Cooper, age 26 in the 1870 Census for Lewis Co., MO. Frank's wife was listed as ELIZABETH, age 24, so I am not sure how they tie into the family line. The children listed with Frank and Elizabeth are:
LOUISA, age 4, born in MO,
and SAMUEL, age 2, born in MO."

Doc's NOTE: Basil-b. 1820, the brother of Mary Jane, married SARAH SLATER prior to 1841. SARAH died in 1851. I suspect that SARAH may have been the sister of ANDERSON SLATER.
