Hello - Glad to try to be of help. It will take some searching to establish any connection. Have you found any documentation for your Schlagheck ancestors emigration? My group left the Coesfeld in the late 1840s and settled in west-central Ohio before moving to Toledo in the 1860s. One relative moved to Minnesota in the 1870s and there are still some Schlagheck families there today. I'll take a look for the Slakey name on the 1870 and 1880.
