& 1745.  He sold an estate in Tolland in 1764; the deed bears the signature of "Joseph SLAFTER".

Joseph SLATER resided in Foster, RI until c1775 when he removed to
Guilford, Windham Co., VT where he remained until c1814 when he again uprooted his family  and moved to Preston, Chenango Co., New York.  He is probably the Captain Joseph SLATER  who settled in Preston on the farm east of Stead's farm.47 

Joseph served in the Revolutionary War as a private in Capt. Comfort
STARR's Company in 1780 48  The SlafterMemorial, Page 51 states that Joseph declined to receive a pension for his services saying that his services were freely given and he was not in need of aid.  I could not prove this statement but assume that Rev. Slafter was told
this by a Slater descendent prior to 1869 the publication date of his work.

There is no probate record for Joseph at the Chenango County Surrogate
Court located in Norwich, NY.
