Lucy Brent CURD and Robert Fontaine SLAUGHTER were married on 20 September 1821 in Logan County, Kentucky.97,205 Robert Fontaine SLAUGHTER100, son of James SLAUGHTER and Elizabeth HAMPTON, died before November 1826.

Robert F. was possibly a doctor. A date of death as 9 Oct 1929 in St. Francisville LA is obviously wrong - Robert was deceased before his father's will written Aug 1831. He was in fact dead prior to November, 1826. Said to have married in Bowling Green KY, but that was also incorrect.
