Looking to locate Emaline "Emily" More/Moore/Slater in 1850 U.S. Census. Her maiden name could be either More, Moore or Slater. Emily was born 16 March 1844 in Raytown, Ray Co., Missouri.
Emily notes her name as Emaline B. More on Marriage Record to Henry Clark Ambrose in 1858. In 1894 in a biography in "A Reminiscent History of The Ozark Region" she noted her name prior to marriage as being Miss Emily Slater, a native of Ray Co., and daughter of Thomas and Catherine (Moore) Slater.
The 1850 Census lists a Thomas Slater with a wife Mary and children. Emaline is not listed as daughter of Thomas Slater. Nor is Catherine his wife. This may be a second marriage. Would be interested in learning if Thomas Slater's wife, Mary died after 1850 and if he then remarried a Catherine Moore.
Any information on the Thomas Slater family or Emaline Moore Slater is appreciated
