Re: Slater -Simmons wed 1901
In Response To: Slater -Simmons wed 1901 () a surname on my tree specifically Duncan Mckencie Slater Sr and his son Duncan Jr. Duncan Jr and sister Marilyn lived with their aunt Corrie Vance Todd and her husband James in Phliadelphia, Pa in 1940 on Lancaster St.
The people u mentioned may be descendants of the Slaters I am researching r not. Duncan Jr. and Marilyn's mothers name was Ida Mae Vance.
I hope this might be a link in my finding family connections.

July 2, 1901
Dr. B. J. Simmons, the colored physician of this city, was married to Petronia Slater, a daughter of Alonza Slater, the well-known carpenter, last Wednesday night. The marriage was a run away match, on account of parental objection, as they wanted their daughter to finish her education in a college in Virginia, which she had been attending. The marriage created much interest among the negroes, as both parties are among the most intelligent of their race.
