Michigan couple looks up ancestry in Slayton
By: Sheila Crowley Murray County News Staffwriter

Tracing geneaology has been popular over the generations. And thanks to internet has become easier.

For a couple from Belding, Michigan, their heritage brought them to the community of Slayton. You see, their last name is Slayton.

We recently visited Rapid City, South Dakota and decided to trek a little out of our way to trace the Slayton name, said Deb and Mike Slayton. The couples ten day vacation has taken them to ten different states. Well have a few new magnets for our refrigerator, commented Mike.

Their initial stop here was the Slayton Area Chamber of Commerce to gather information about the community of Slayton. From there Mike and Deb headed over to the Murray County Historical Museum where they could go a little bit more in depth and trace their ancestry.
