  • ID: I007765
  • Name: John Sloan
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: JOHN /SLOAN/, "Coddle Creek John"
  • Birth: ABT 1720 in PA. ?
  • Death: AFT 1789 in LINCOLN Co. NC.
  • Occupation: Constable
  • Event: File Number VB #2810 --> I #342
  • Note:
    John was born about 1720 and died after 1789 in Lincoln Co. NC. His father is believe to be the John Sloan that d. 1741 Lancaster Co. PA. John settled on Coddle Creek in SE. Rowan Co. not too far from the Mecklenburg-Cabarrus Co. lines. There he received a 535 acre grant from Lord Granville 27 Nov 1753. The plantation lay between Col. Alexander Osborn and Andrew Cathy. I believe he served as Constable 15 Apr 1759 in Rowan Co. since he was mentioned with James Huggins, however, this could be a completely different John. John sold his 535 acre grant to his son Robert on 14 Apr 1789 the land was then adjoining James Hart and Hugh McKnight. John Braley and son John Braley Jr. witness the transation. Soon after the land became a part of the newly formed Iredell Co. NC.

    He married Mary Huggins probably around 1743, possibly in Augusta Co. Va. Mary was born 1722 in Ireland and she died 13 May 1787 in Rowan Co. NC. She is buried at the Coddle Creek Cemetery. Buried in the same grave is an infant grandson (son of Robert & Mary). I don't recall the original source that Huggins was Mary's maiden name. However, Russ Haynes mentioned that John Huggins and wife Ann Carruth had a dau Mary that m. John Sloan. [that would make Eleanor Sloan and Joseph Haynes 1st cousins]

    I do not know John's date and place of death. He is not buried with his wife, at least no marker exist. He was alive in 1789 in Lincoln Co. NC when he deeded land to son Robert. Poe believed he lived with some of his children possible dau Elizabeth Sloan Epsey since a male, otherwise unaccounted for, was with the Epsey family in 1790.
