Additional comments.
1. Fenton Slaughter Was My Great-Great Grandfather
Fenton Slaughter was my great-great grandfather, and I was there the day the marker was dedicated. I spent many summers out at “the ranch” with my Uncle Bob, Fenton’s grandson. Thanks for memorializing this piece of my family’s history. I only hope that, as they raise Prado Dam, that it doesn’t fall victim to a flood some day, such as the one which turned the little hill into an island back in 1969!
