          DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM & DANIEL SLATE  


                       First Generation

	1.	WILLIAM SLATE was born about 1675. He died about 1722/1726.

William SLATE appeared in Salem, MA when he married Elizabeth Abby in 1702.
Soon after their marriage the Slates removed to Windham, CT where their first
child was born in 1703.  On 28 May 1705 for the consideration of a yoke of
oxen, Jonathan Genings Jr. of Windham, CT sold land to William Slate, also of
Windham.  This land consisted of Lot #1 in Windham bounded by John Fitch's land. The deed was witnessed by John Fitch and Joseph Gennings.(1)  On 3 Dec 
1708 the Town of Windham proprietors granted William Slate six more acres of common land due to his "disappointment by reason of his mistake of building of his house upon land that is not his one (own) and he having no convenient place for building.......". (2) On 30 Oct 1711. Ebenezer Abbe sold 19 acres of land in Windham to William Slate, all parties of  Windham. The deed was witnessed by John Fitch & Samuel More. (3)  On 17 June 1720, William Slate of Windham sold all of his land in that town to Thomas Fitch of Boston.  This land included the 80 acres of land originally purchased from Jonathan Genings Jr, Benoni Phillips, Ebenezer Abbe and land given to the proprietors of Windham, deed witnessed by Joseph Huntington Jr. & Humphrey Bailey. (4)  On 3 Nov 1721 Elizabeth Slate relinquished her right of dower in her husband's land to Thomas Fitch of Boston - witnesses John Fitch & Richard Abbe. (5)

Although there are no land records for William and/or Elizabeth Slate  in the
Mansfield, CT land records, several of their children resided there.  It is
very possible that the Slates resided in Mansfield with one of their children
after they sold out in Windham in 1720. If William did die c1721-1726, his
widow may have remarried.  On 16 June 1734, Ann Slate, a young woman was
admitted to the Mansfield Congregational Church.  This may have been
Elizabeth's daughter who a few months later married Joseph Whitmore.

On 1 Mar 5 1726 the Hartford Court appointed Thomas Welles of Hartford to be 
guardian unto one Daniel Slate of Windsor, a minor 18 years of age and
Samuel Slate of Hartford, a minor 15 years of age.  This document probably
refers to the sons of William Slate of Windham and would imply that William had died between 30 Nov. 1721, the date of Deed E:270 and 1 Mar 1725/26, the date of the court record. (6)

WILLIAM married ELIZABETH ABBY, daughter of SAMUEL ABBY and MARY KNOWLTON, on 23 Sep 1702 in Salem, Essex Co., MA.( (7)  Elizabeth was born about 1680/1681. She died after 30 Nov 1721 when she was mentioned in above deed.
