Henry SLY
Ms. __?__
[Mary HIGGINS]?
Susanna NEFF
WARNING:  this family group sheet is incomplete and some of the evidence supporting it is circumstantial.  Consider it hypothetical.
Husband:  Henry SLY / SLYH / SLYGH / SLIGH
Birth:  1780-84
Death:  1840-50
Brother probablyMathias SLYH

If Henry is the brother of the Mathias SLYH who also came from (W)VA and appears in the Franklin Co., OH, census for the first time in 1830 they would obviously have the same parents, though those parents are in dispute.  Basically, it's a question of whether Mathias is the son or grandson of Joh. Friedrich SCHLEICH.

Marriage-1:  ca. 1800-1810
Wife-1:  Ms. __?__

Given Henry's age, he almost certainly had an earlier wife, just as Susanna had an earlier husband.  If our subject is the Henry SLEIGH in the 1810 census of Jefferson Co., (W)VA, then he clearly did have an earlier wife and children.

Marriage-2(?):  16 Aug 1821, Franklin Co., OH
Wife-2(?):  Mary HIGGINS

Did our subject also marry Mary?  Is "Daughter B" her child?
