Dead Fred's Genealogy Photo Archive, a free, fun photo genealogy research web site devoted to helping you visualize your heritage!

Dear readers,

We need your help. 90% of our expenses are covered by donations averaging $10, though not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, we would have enough to operate DeadFred for a year. That's right, the price of a bottle of soda would do it. If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

"Catherine Slawson was born in New York, 1806. She married Ezekiel Brown in Erie, Pennsylvania, 1825. They were the parents of seven children. He died November 10, 1848.

She had beautiful handwriting, was a good seamstress, and made lovely bedspreads, rugs and fine linens. Catherine passed away November 21, 1895, in Trenton, Cache Valley, Utah at the age of eighty-nine years." Catherine's parents were Peter Slawson and Lucy Hinckley. She was the 3rd of 6 children.
