The Family Sloan

Way back in the early 90's, when I used to pester Nana for genealogy information, she finally sat down and wrote down what she knew of her father's family. We knew so many Laney's and so many Simmons and so many Barbee's that it used to drive me nuts that we didn't know any Sloans (her father's name). All she knew was that her grandfather's name was William "Billy" Sloan, and her grandmother's name was mary Etta Andrews. She knew a few of the the Andrews sister's names as well, and, for some reason, which ones had red hair. Her father Ira Lloyd had a twin sister who died when she was around 16. Ira married Nomin sometime before 1921, and he later remarried in Pennsylvania and had a few more children. There was a story I wish I knew the details of regarding him and going to prison - Papa used to mention it from time to time - and I believe he was a lawyer. The Sloans operated the General Store in Olney, Texas, where Nana was born.
I have finally unraveled the mystery of the Sloan and Andrew families! 
John Monroe Sloan and wife ChristineJohn Monroe Sloan was born in 1826 in Alabama. He moved to Texas before 1858 where he married a Jackson in Grayson County. He served with the 9th Texas Calvary from Pilot Grove, Grayson Co. TX, joining the Confederacy in 1861 at Pilot Grove (then Lick Skillet), Texas. He returned home to Grayson County and went on to become a Governors Consular of Texas to New York, where he served for 5 years, then returned to Texas and became a bridge builder, building most of the bridges in Collin, Grayson, Hunt and Lamar counties. He died in 1923 and was buried with his wife and 2 girls who previously served as slaves before the war. He was buried in the family plot.
