John Sloans in Pennsylvania 1790-1850
...looking for John Sloan, who married Nancy Agnes Daugherty 1833, and his father, possibly John Sloan Sr., who settled in Allegheny County. It is believed 1833 is also the year he immigrated. To better keep track of all leads and connections, I'm including info on John Sloans that are in PA earlier than the 1830s.
