I am researching William Henry Sloan b. April 3, 1886 and his wife Lillie Delora Cain b. March 2, 1882, they lived in Plant City. Willie died there in Nov. 11, 1973 and Lille died there Oct. 30, 1970. They are both buried in Memorial Park Cem.
Known children of this couple are: Effie, Edith, Homer, Emory, Ellis, and Irma.
My Sloans came from Statesboro, Bulloch Co., GA. They came to FL in the early 1900's first settling in Sampson City, Bradford Co., FL and then later moved to Plant City. There were very few Sloans in Bulloch Co., GA and those that were there were there in the very early 1800's.
