Re: Alvord "Albert" Slack


When you list Mr. Slack as Alvord "Albert" Slack, do you mean his full name was Alvord Albert Slack and he usually was known as Albert?

The reason that I ask is that I have seen only one record listing him as Albert and all other records that I have seen list him as Alvord (sometimes incorrectly transcribed as Alvard) so I'm curious about the legitimacy of the Albert name.

I'm not sure how deep you want to dig into this family, but Alvord's daughter (Gladys "Margaret" Slack) married Eugene Ross Barnes (born in Londonderry).  I have Eugene's 1973 obituary and can transcribe it if you want.  Also a person named Wylie Avard Slack died in Toronto on Jan 31, 2001.  My guess is that he is the s/o Wylie Slack and grandson of Alvord Slack.  If you want, I can get his obituary from the Feb 2, 2001 Toronto Star to confirm (and get his mother's name).
