  • Name Calvin SLAY 
    Gender Male 
    Died Bef Feb 1866 

    • Slay family researcher Elizabeth Casburn Brown, explaining why she thinks Calvin is the father of James Lawrence Slay, Sr.:

      "I have also been working on finding parents for Epsy Caroline Slay.  One message that I had said that her mother remarried a man named Helton.  I found John Helton and his wife Millie A (sometimes listed as Mary) with their children Lawrence J, Epsy and Onelia living in Baldwin Co AL 1870. I have always thought that your James Lawrence was most likely Epsy’s brother, Lawrence J.  Espy’s death records shows that her parents were Millie Enfinger and Calvin Slay.  All of Epsy’s family stayed in the Baldwin Co area and so did Millie.  There is a Calvin Slay in my files who was born in 1825 and was the son of Nathan Slay Jr 1795 and Mary S Powell 1793 but nothing is know about him at this time.  Nathan and his family settled in Choctaw Co AL.  I don’t know if this is the right Calvin 1825 or if it could be his son.  The name Calvin is used in Epsy’s family as well as James Lawrence’s.  I admit it’s not proof positive but it is the best link we’ve had so far and enough so that it requires further digging.  Calvin either abandoned his family which I doubt or died before February 4 1866 which is when Millie married John Helton in Baldwin Co."
