I am searching for the parents of Ione Maud Slabaugh who was born 7 May 1880 and married Avery B. Starks on 22 Feb 1900 in Elkhart Co., Ind. In my searches I came across the following biography that may be of help to someone researching Slabaughs. (I unfortunately do not know any more about those mentioned in this biography.)
Portage Co., Ohio biography from "History of Portage Co., Ohio" published by Warner, Beers & Co., Chicago, 1885.
ISAAC SLABAUGH, farmer, P.O. Suffield, was born March 15, 1830 in Columbiana County, Ohio, son of CHRISTIAN and NANCY SLABAUGH, natives of Lancaster County, Penn., who settled in Rootstown Township, Portage Co., Ohio, about 1835. Here Christian Slabaugh died about 1848. His widow subsequently moved to Elkhart County, Ind., where she remained until her death. Of their family of 12 children, Isaac is the 5th. Our subject was brought up on the farm and attended the limited schools of the home district. He early learned the brick-maker's trade, which he followed about 11 years, in Akron and the surrounding county, being 4 years foreman of a large brickyard in Akron. He was married July 4, 1850 to CATHERINE, daughter of SAMUEL J. and ELIZABETH WISE, of Stark County, Ohio. Their children are LEWIS, ELLA (now Mrs. ALEXANDER, of Akron) and EMMA. In 1868 they settled where they now reside in Suffield Township and here by industry have acquired a fine farm of 107 acres of well-improved land. Mr. and Mrs. Slabaugh are pioneer members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, to which they have belonged for 25 years. He is a stanch Republican; a successful farmer; an upright citizen respected by all who know him.
