All Sloans found in Allegheny and Beaver County, PA 1800 to 1850

Looking for links to the following family:

John Sloan (immigrated c1833?) married Nancy Agnes DAUGHERTY (immigrated 1818?)
in Pittsburgh 1833...then settled in Fairview/Ohioville, Beaver County?
Children:
Samuel Robert Sloan (c1834-?) m. Georgia SHAUTON
James Sloan (c1837-?) m. Eliza STEELE
William John Sloan (1839-1921) m. Rebecca Jane McCLELLAND
Thomas Spreul Sloan (c1841-?) m. Margaret THOMPSON
Elizabeth Jane Sloan (c1844-c1858)
Mary Sloan (c1846-c1850)
Martha Sloan (c1848-?) m. George Reed SLATER

Per Rel Davis, Nancy Daugherty also married a Wilson.

Nearby Armstrong, Beaver and Clarion Counties may also have leads...several findings of John Sloan and Daughertys there.

Is there a NESBIT or WARRICK link to this family?

Thank you Frank Mitchell, Bill Thompson and all the others who are helping me here.
