John Taylor Slade

( - 18 January 1937)
     John Taylor Slade was born on January 27, 1848 in Jones County, Georgia. He was the son of Joseph H. Slade and Elizabeth M. Dumas. About 1858, when John was about 10 years old, his family moved from Georgia to Union County, Louisiana.

     On June 12, 1864, when John was 16, he enlisted in Louisiana Cavalry and served until May 5, 1865, when he was discharged.1 In December, 1867, he arrived in West Texas and worked on cattle ranges in Texas and New Mexico for the next several years. He finally settled in Young County where he obtained a land grant for 160 acres a few miles north of the town of Markley.2
     John Taylor married Lurinda Plank, daughter of James W. Plank and Mary Jane Edwards, in 1871 in Texas; John was about 23 and Lurinda was about 16.3 In 1878, J.T. Slade was issued a brand for his cattle.4 John Taylor Slade was purchased land Made application for land grant. In the 1884 Young County school census, J. T. Slade and Lurinda are living in Farmer, Young County, Texas. J. T. Slade is listed as parent, E. P. Slade, a student at Farmer school, 10 years old, male and Eliza Slade, a student at Farmer school, 8 years old, female.5 The 1910 census indicates that J. T. Slade is retired farmer with his own income and is a widower.
     John married second Mary L. Manning circa 1913. She was known as "Molly." On June 11, 1915, Young County Sheriff M. M. Wallace served divorce papers on J.T. Slade. The records were filed but the case never came to court, which indicates it could have been only legal wrangling. On June 28, 1915, Sheriff M. M. Wallace had the citation returned to him. No other information exists in the fee docket book which means the divorce did not go through. No other record about the divorce has been found. Molly was still living with J.T. in 1920.6
     On January 3, 1917, J. T. Slade sold his homestead ranch in Young County, Texas to G. P. Stewart. J. T. Slade and wife, Mollie Slade, as well as all his children and their spouses were named in the deed; E. P. Slade, Ann McCulloch and husband, Ben McCulloch, Mary Rhyne, a widow, and T. W. Slade and O. W. Slade. The sale was made in consideration of $2,400 paid by G. P. Stewart of Tarrant County for a 160 acre parcel of land in Young County, being all of the J. T. Slade Survey, Abstract No. 1790, Patent No. 416, Vol. 14, and about 17 miles North East of the town of Graham. Signing the document were: J. T. Slade, Mollie Slade, Mary Rhyne, Ben McCulloch, Ann E. McCulloch, E. P. Slade, Dollie Slade, O. H. Slade, T. W. Slade. The deed was filed along with proof of heirship documents.7 Several of J. T.'s grandchildren have described him as having a mean temperment. He was asthmatic and had difficulty breathing, so he spent part of his time in Deming, New Mexico where the air was dryer. During his last years, he lived in Lubbock, Texas, near his daughter, Anne Elizabeth McCulloch.8 John died on January 18, 19379 was buried in Old Lamesa Cemetery, Lamesa, Dawson County, Texas.10

Joseph H. Slade

(11 January 1825 - 29 May 1890)
     Joseph H. Slade was born on January 11, 1825 in Jones County, Georgia.1 He was the son of Samuel Slade and Chloe Harrison.
     Joseph married Elizabeth M. Dumas, daughter of John Dumas and Matilda Kolb, on August 31, 1843 in Georgia.2 Joseph H. Slade was sold land Joseph H Slade sold lots 220-230 (90ac) 5th district, GA to John Lamar. on October 12, 1847. He was a member of Grand Lodge of Georgia Free Masons, Wornam Lodge No. 116 in Clinton from 1852-1856.3 He was purchased land Joseph H Slade purchased 320 acres 1858 Sep 01, Pike Co, GA deed records, JHS sold lots 103-106 to Samuel G Slade.
     The family traveled from Georgia to Louisiana about 1858-1860 and perhaps that is the reason they were not found in the 1860 census. On September 1, 1860 Joseph H. Slade received a patent for land described as E/2 of NW/4 & SW/4 Section 5 & NW/4 NW/4 Section 8, Twp 23 North, Range 1 East, Louisiana Principal Meridian in Union Parish, Louisiana.4 He sold his Pike County properts, 80 Ac to William H Chandler and 100 acres to Albert B. Vaughn (his son-in-law), on December 12, 1866. Joseph operated a mercantile store at Oakland.5
     Joseph H. Slade served as postmaster at Oakland from February 8, 1875 to December 14, 1881.6 Joseph died on May 9, 1890 in Oakland, Union Parish, Louisiana, at age 65.7
Note about Joseph's middle name:
This branch of Slade family has a pattern of repeating maternal family names as a first or middle name. Joseph H Slade's mother was a Harrison and his paternal grandmother a Harris. One of these names is likely what the initial H stands for. Documentation defining Joseph's middle name has not been found. Some Ancestry trees erroneously show Henry as his middle name, but this has not been proven and is undoubtedly incorrect as Henry has never been used as a name in any of the 2000+ descendants of Samuel Slade of Southampton, Virginia.

     Oakland, Union Parish, Louisiana is located about a mile south of the Louisiana-Arkansas state line on Hwy. 549. In Joseph H. Slade's time, it was a bustling community which Merle Knox in her history of Strong, Arkansas dated 1979 credited with being settled in the early 1840's by people from Alabama and Georgia. As one would suspect, the name was derived from the many oak trees that grew in the community but in the early days it was referred to as Union Crossroads. Mrs. Knox lists some of the early settlers as Joseph Slade, Robert Murphy, George Everett, Duncan D. Dawkins, Mattersons, Wootens and others. Joseph Slade and Robert Murphy are listed as early merchants who were followed by J. F. Sample, J. H. McFadden and George E. Murphy. Others included O. O. Clark and Company, and W. K. Slade (son of Joseph). The village is said to have included many stores and businesses and several doctors. A school with eight grades was operated in Dr. Murphy's home until the school building could be erected.
     Joseph H. Slade had a home place about two miles west of the crossroads. The Springhill Cemetery is just east of there and it is suspected that the Springhill Church was originally in this general area. However, today the church is located near the crossroads. Except for a few homes in the general area, the church is all that remains. The decline started when the railroad went through Strong, Union County, Arkansas instead of Oakland and a large number of the Oakland residents moved to Strong. However, as late as 1979 Mrs. Knox indicates the village had a post office, store, fire tower, a saw mill and the Springhill Church. Today most of the area is covered with brush and pine trees.5

Elizabeth M. Dumas

(12 May 1827 - 11 March 1914)
     Elizabeth M. Dumas was born on May 12, 1827 in Jones County, Georgia. She was the daughter of John Dumas and Matilda Kolb.
A search to determine Elizabeth's middle name has been inconclusive. Marion was given as her middle name in her father's will. Her mother was named Matilda, and she named a daughter Matilda, giving thought to Matilda as her middle name. However, the death certificate of her son, Samuel Joseph, lists his mothers maiden name as Martha Dumas. The informant was S.J.'s wife Nannie. Elizabeth Dumas had lived with Sam & Nannie for more than 10 years prior to her death, so Nannie should have known her mother-in-law's name. Perhaps this indicates that Nannie called her by her middle name and it was Martha. It does not appear that there is sufficient evidence to determine whether her middle name was Marion, Matilda or Martha.
     Elizabeth married Joseph H. Slade, son of Samuel Slade and Chloe Harrison, on August 31, 1843 in Georgia.1 Elizabeth died on March 11, 1914 in Amarillo, Potter County, Texas, at age 86 and was buried in Rosebud, Falls County, Texas.2

William Little Slade1

(4 May 1846 - 14 September 1921)
     William Little Slade was born on May 4, 1846 in Jones County, Georgia.2,1 He was the son of Joseph H. Slade and Elizabeth M. Dumas. His middle name was likely named after Dr. William Little, a family friend, and neighbor in 1850 census. It is possible that Dr. Little was who delivered him.
     William was a young boy when his family moved from Georgia to Union Parish, Louisiana. He served the Army of the Confederate States under General Harrison, Company 1, Thirty-first Louisiana Regiment from February 1862 to May 1865. His first hard battle was at Chickasaw Bayou. At Vicksburg he was captured, and paroled, after which he returned home, and in a few days returned to his company. He was in several other engagements, and remained with his company until the surrender. Afterward, he returned to his home and resumed farming.
     William Little Slade married Florence Mary Burke, daughter of Gideon H. Burke and Adeliza Cammack, on December 19, 1867 in El Dorado, Union County, Arkansas. The Biographical & Historical Memoirs of Southern Arkansas by Goodspeed gives an account of his life, a portion follows: W. L. Slade merchant, planter and millman, Champagnolle, Ark. Mr. Slade is one of those progressive men who is not satisfied to run in the same old ruts traversed by so many, but branches forth and tries new enterprises and new ideas. He is a prominent citizen and a Royal Arch Mason. Mr. Slade is now engaged in merchandising and farming, and is a prominent business man, carrying a stock of goods valued at $2,000. He has also a fine gin, and this has all the latest improvements. His farm consists of 640 acres, with 218 acres under cultivation. He and Mrs. Slade are members of the Missionary Baptist Church.3
     William married second Antonette Garland Ivy on October 15, 1899 in Union County, Arkansas.4 William died on September 14, 1921 at age 75.1 He was buried in Champagnolle Cemetery, El Dorado, Union County, Arkansas.5
