Yes, this is the same Luther Washington Slater. Although four generations apart we are second cousins. He and "Mollie" Yount had a daughter, Effie Louise. Mollie died giving birth to their son, Howard D., who also died. He later married his second cousin, Margaret Prentiss Slater, and while living in Washington, DC, they buried two infants in the Congressional Cemetery.
His was one of the first Slater burials that I came upon during my first visit to New Jerusalem/Union Cemetery in Lovettsville.
I've copied his some of his military records at the National Archives. What information are you looking for?
