Sloans in the Americian Revolution

This page is dedicated to the Sloans that are credited with service in the
American Revolutionary War.

Click on the flags for a little flag history.

Special Thanks to Benjamin Tubb for creating this Yankee Doodle tune especially for my Sloan Patriots web page.  Visit Benjamin's Website for more of his music.

I have recruited Ellie Stites Swanger <> to help with this page and to serve as a point of
DAR Logocontact for those interested in membership with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).  Ellie does Patriot Lookups for those seeking their forebears that may be listed in the DAR Patriot index and she is a DAR national award winner for the many volunteer hours she has contributed online for the DAR thru America on Line.  Hopefully, we will get all the Sloan veterans listed below.  If you have other ancestors (non-Sloan) that you think may have served in the Revolutionary War, drop Ellie an note. The initial Patriot listing below was contributed by Ellie based on the SLOAN, SLOANE, SLONE Patriots as found in the DAR Patriot Index, Centennial Edition, c. 1990, p. 2689-90. To get more info on these Sloans, you will need to send for a copy of a member's application.  They are $5-$10 each, and you don't need to know the applicants name or number, click here for details. You just need to specific the information below and ask for a recent file with the children listed. . . preferably no supplementals. The mailing address is NSDAR NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS, 1776 D Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20006-5303

The patriots with a red dot are Sloans with Revolutionary War Service not found in the DAR Patriot Index. Probably because no descendant has ever applied for DAR/SAR membership.

To find out more information about the individuals listed you will need to visit the National Archives in Washington, DC or your nearest Regional Branch Office.  At the Archives you can take a look at the Revolutonary War Patriots Compiled Service Records or the Pension applications of the Patriot and/or his widow.  The pension applications are one of the best (and frequently the ONLY) sources for genealogical information.

Codes and abbreviations:  b = born; d = death; m = married; PS=Patriotic Service <fed the soldiers, furnished horses, housed them, etc.>; CS = Civil Service; Sol = no details known; CL = Continental Line); PNSR or WPNS  = there are pension records on the patriot (PNSR) or/and his widow (WPNS).

Many of them are linked to their file in the Sloan Database.  A red PNSR indicates that a transcribed pension record is in the file.  I'm not sure I'll always maintain these links.  If you have trouble finding the patriot in the index, look for the wife.
