Biographical Sketch

Daughter-in-law of C. C. Slaughter, Alice Louise Donohoo (Allie D.) was the wife of George Morgan Slaughter, with whom she had three children.

Born in 1837 in Sabine County, Texas, Christopher Columbus (C. C.) established a frontier ranch in Palo Pinto County, Texas, in 1857 with his father, George Webb Slaughter, and his brothers. During the Civil War, C. C. served in the frontier militia and in the Texas Rangers. Afterwards, he drove cattle over the Chisholm Trail and later moved operations to West Texas where, by 1905, he owned 40,000 cattle and controlled over one million acres. Before his death in 1919, he had founded the American National Bank of Dallas (1884), and cofounded the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (1877), the Texas Baptist Education Commission (1897) and the Baylor Hospital of Dallas, Texas (1904).
