Their daughter Roxye Ann TOWNSEND married Samuel Burns SLAUGHTER, the son of Moses and Elizabeth SLAUGHTER who moved from South Georgia by 1850. Their daughter Florida Jane SLAUGHTER married David Benjamin/Brooks ST.CLAIR, who moved from Ohio in 1882, in 1886. He served as a Justice of the Peace in the county until his death in 1902. Their youngest daughter Rebecca Jane ST.CLAIR is my grandmother. She was born in 1899 in Trenton. If there is anyone who has any information or connection with any of these families or any branches of them, I would be interested in sharing information. Thanks. David Beers
