About the Slaton surname

Without going way up the tree, James Oliver Perry Slaten, SR. had several children. One was my Grandfather, John Henry Slaten. He could read but not write. My dad was the last child, and his older sisters made out the birth certificate. They spelled it Slaton instead of Slaten. So that is where at least one name change came from. When my grandparents were buried, they used Slaton on the tombstone.
