Sloan Bible, Carter & Roane Co, Ky Submitted by: Paul D. Rosebery 111 Thicket Lane Palatka, Fla. 32177 http://www.rootsweb.com/~archreg/vols/00002.html#0000367 Date: Sat, 22 Nov 1997 My great grandfather was Esbon Sloan, born in Rowan Co. Jan 27, 1828. About 30 years ago my grandmother, Rosa Bell Coldiron Sloan gave me Esbon's bible. I became interested in genealogy after I retired, a year ago. The bible contains birth and marriage records, two letters from Esbon's brother-in-law written in 1885 and 1886 and a Sloan Family Tree. The items were copied exactly as written. Also included is Eliza J. Enix Sloan's Obituary. My grandfather lived in Carter Co. I think. The family tree was on a piece of paper, loose in the bible. The names listed under 'Births' and 'Marriages' were written on the pages of the bible. There are 7 tin type photos that I have no idea who the people are. There are 2 receipts dated 1938, for material for Thomas Harrison Sloan's casket and burial clothes. Esbon died in 1899. Thomas H. Sloan was William B. Sloan's son and died in Jan. 1938. The counties Esbon and his children lived in were Carter and Rowan.

W. S. Williams =================================================================== OBIT: Sloan, 1929 ANOTHER AGED LADY PASSES ON Time has come and passed, the death angel has been busy seeking with its sickle that person whose time on earth has been spent, and whom God has seen fit to call to their reward, and on last Tuesday, June 4, visited at the home of Mrs. Eliza Jane Sloan, wife of Esbon Sloan, and called her to take up her abode in heaven with those who had gone on before her to dwell forever and forever. Mrs Eliza Jane Sloan was born March 25, 1843, and died June 4, 1929, at the ripe old age of 86 years, two months and ten days. She leaves three sons, Alvin, George and Baldwin Sloan; two daughters, Mrs. Francis Evans and Mrs. Matilda Evans; two brothers, J. P. Enix, of Missouri, and T. J. Enix, of Green Forest, Arkansas; two sisters, Mrs. Lucinda Hamilton, of Fitch and Mrs. A. Stamper of this city. Early in life she chose the road that leads to life everlasting, and in the days when she was and could be of service to her Maker she united with the Christian church, and from that day to the time she was called she rendered service for Him and lived a life of the Maker whose name is Christ Jesus. Her life was one of example and when followed will be a reward for those following. The funeral services were conducted at the family cemetery near the old church on Flat Fork of Tygart Friday by Rev. May Reeder, after which, surrounded by a large crowd of friends who knew and loved her dearly, the remains were laid to rest.
