Contact: Mr Clinton Slayton
Administered by Clinton Slayton (US) with over 40 Y results and four SNP tests. Financial constraints do not allow all of these to show at Family Tree DNA.

Largest pools so far:
Descendants of Arthur & Rachel Slayden of Virginia, USA I-P37.2
Descendants of John, George and Major (and possibly William) Slaton/Slatton of Virginia> North Carolina >South Carolina USA I-M253
Shortcut codes used in discussing and writing about some of the family groups:
Arthur & Rachel Slayden, New Kent > Goochland counties Virginia, USA = A & R
Descendants of John, George and Major Slaton, prob ancestor William (fl 1730-1787 Virginia USA) = Carolina
Suspected Non-paternal event in line of Aaron b 1804 SC > TN > AL > Craighead Co, Arkansas, USA does not share matches with any other group = 1804 Aaron or AR Aaron
Descendants of "John "Jack" Slatton, but his father was probably James BROCK, does not share matches with any other group except other BROCKS = Brock
Abraham Slatten/Sladding (fl 1730-1763 Albemarle Co Virginia, USA) through suspected son Tyre, does not share matches with any other group = Abraham
A line begun in Massachusetts, USA, does not share matches with any above = Thomas & Hannah (Mass)
Results from British lines (Kent and Lancashire) are posted but more provable results are hoped for in the future. (Anyone who has a known British Isles or European YDNA ancestor is being sought for this project.)
We are allowing some non-Slaton male results to show, as a proof of concept, but only when these families are known to have married into, or lived in certain communities in common with the Slaton/Slattons.
