The 1900 Federal Census for Union Township, Randolph Co., N.C., ED#99, page 291A records John B.(37-Aug 1862) and Lunda (37-Nov 1862) Slack with children Numa (16-June 1883), Braxton (15-Sept 1884), Sarah E.

Next door is Tabitha Lucas (Mar 1844) living with her mother, Margaret (Nov 1808). The 1880 Union census lists Tabitha's parents as Thomas (b 1810) and Margaret (b 1809).
The 1910 Federal Census for Richland Township, Randolph Co., N.C. records John B.(47) and Lundy (47) Slack with children Martha (16), Ernest (14), Dewey (12), Emmery (9), and John B. Jr. (8). John and Lundy are living on Plank Road and are listed as married 27 years having 12 children of which 11 are still alive. Also in the household is Tabitha Lucas (67-Aunt).
The 1920 Federal Census for Richland Township, Randolph Co., N.C. records John B. (57) and Lucinda (57) Slack. The only other member of their household is Tabitha Lucas (72-Aunt).
The death certificate below indicates the parents of John B. Slack to be Laban Slack and Sallie Lucas. The 1870 census records have John Slack living with Aaron Slack and no John Slack with Laban Slack. No marriage record for John Slack and Sallie Lucas has been found although Laban Slack is recorded as married to Lora Lassiter in 1863 and Elizabeth Lassiter in 1868. It is quite possible that Sallie died in early 1860s and Laban married Lora, who died, and then married Elizabeth.
