      Horace Henry Slawson was born on August 17, 1894 in Central Valley, NY. He was the son of George and Rebecca Storm Slawson. I'm not sure but he may have been adopted. I have a childhood memory of him telling me that his father remarried and his stepmother was very cruel to him. I believe that they were very poor. She would feed her children first and give him the scraps. Horace was a man of very few words so that was a big statement. Despite his harsh upbringing he was a very placid and kind man.

      I was told he was a mix of different ethnicities but mostly American Indian (not sure of which tribe). He died in Tuxedo, NY on April 27 1982 of Cancer at the age of 87. He had several children from his first marriage: George Slawson, Julia Juliet Ayers, Lilian Taylor, Mary Conklin, and Dorothy Schreeder. I don't know anything about his first wife. You should write Dorothy Schreeder to see if she can give you more detailed information. She and her husband, Robert, had a house in Newburgh so that address you have is probably correct. Robert and Dorothy Schreeder had two children: Sharon and Robert. I haven't seen any of them since my grandfather died in 1982, which is a long time ago. I was not close with any of them. At one point my grandfather was close to his daughter Lillian Taylor but then she moved away and they seemed to loose touch.
