Re: Slack - Johnston Marriage


I’m following this Margaret Slack her as well. Ellas A. Slack is possibly
the youngest from m/1 not m/2. Were you looking at a BARNES headstone?

Ella Maud (Cove) Slack died 8 Nov 1928. Alvard “Albert” Slack m/2 Annie Emma
Atkinson on 20 Nov 1929 at United Baptist Parsonage in Debert. Annie Emma
had a daughter, Margaret Slack m/1 Eugene Ross Barnes.

If this is the same Margaret, born 1928, then she’s possibly Annie Emma’s
daughter and an Atkinson descendant on my Winter/s lineage.

s/o Percy Barnes and Effie Smith.

At this time, I don't know if his wife, Margaret Slack is from Alvord
"Albert" Slack's m/1 to Ella Maud Cove or m/2 to Annie Emma Atkinson.
