Sorry for the delay in replying to your email. This is the info I have on an
Archibald Sloan who has a dau named Mary who married a James Mitchell.

This is probably more information than you want, but I have been off in the
land of the Burks surname and really cannot recall that I have contributed my
Sloan line.

Happy Hunting

See John Craig notes

According to the late, well known Blount County historian, W. E. Parham, a
survey was ordered for land for ARCHIBALD SLOAN, joining JOHN and WILLIAM
SLOAN, on Nine Mile Creek and Machine Branch, near where the first Methodist
Church was located in the vicinity of Centenary Baptist Church. This was
probably in 1788, several miles from Carpenter.

After the Civil War the church gained fame for its campground facilities.
The building was 30 x 48 with a door in the center and two windows on each
side,and an AMEN corner of benches on either side of the pulpit. There was
a shed by the side of the church with straw for bedding down. There were
about six camps on the west side of the church, and others in various spots
on the grounds. These camps usually had bunks two deep, fastened to the
walls in frames. Some had lofts to provide additonal sleeping space. Many
visitors to the famed protracted meetings came in hacks or wagons and
brought loads of food.

Greetings from Oklahoma,

The Sloan families in Blount Co. are decendents of Archibald Sloan that died
about 1800.

Blount Co. Tn. Deed No.104 pages 65\66 John Sloan, Alexander Sloan, William
Sloan, James Boyd, Andrew (Jackson) Jackston, David Brown, Carlineas Miller,
Robert Sloan and James Sloan legatees of Archibald Sloan to David Sloan. 14
Aug. 1805, part of a tract of land granted to Archibald Sloan by N.C. #1072
on nine Mile Creek.

I believe this Archibald to be the son of John and Jane Sloan of Donegal Twp.
Lancaster Co. Pa. This John's land was resurveyed in 1763 at that time he was
deceased, leaving a wife Jean, and the following children: Alexander,
Archibald, Mary, Margaret who married Archibald Sloan, and Elizabeth.

There are so many Archibald Sloans. Sure makes research difficult. One
Archibald Sloan and wife Margaret lived in Rowan Co. N.C. This Archibald died
1786\prb.1788 his father was Archibald for Lancaster Co., Pa. He had a
brother Samuel and his son-in-law was Joseph Sharp. This Archibald and
Margaret's children were Archibald Sloan Jr. that m-Rebecca Guy 1788 Iredell
Co. N.C. this is getting to confusing. Anyway my ancestor is Jean Sloan that
married Andrew Jackson in Blount County. Best
