    Notes 

    • William Sloan settled in the Conococheague section of then Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. The time of his death is not known, but was before 1850, possibly several years earlier. He held no title to the land on which he lived as this was still Indian land. In 1750 we have evidence that his widow had married a second time to John Wasson and that John Wasson had received all and singular and personal estate of William Sloan. Settlement of his estate was not made until 1762, after his widow had returned from captivity with the Indians. The Sloans were in the Conococheague early as a letter to the Pennsylvania Gazette written from Shippensburg in 1733 says "John Sloan and Dan McGee were in town today."

      John Wasson bought the plantation, which had been warranted to James Glenn in December 1743, from James Glenn in January, 1750. This is where he lived with Ann Means Sloan, and possibly where William Sloan resided before his death.

      The relationship between William Sloan, Ann Means and John Wasson is definitely established in the Frances Nesbit Sloan affadivit, which is a part of the Franklin Coutny Records, in which she says she is the step-daughter-in-law of John Wasson.
