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.

OBIT: Sloan, 1929

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 
    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.
