I am researching these families for my daughter. They are on her father's side of the family. They were in the Elliott/Morgan/Carter/Lawrence county areas of Kentucky and removed to Scioto County, OH at various times.
I am interested in any information about them but have one in particular I have a "theory" on at the present time and have been unable to document.
I have a Franklin Sloas b. 14 Sep 1886 Elliott Co., KY. I have found the marriage of him to Sylvia SMITH and the three children born of that union.
But, he had a previous marriage with two children from that union; Hollie b. 27 Nov 1914 Lawrence Co., and Bessie b. 25 Jan 1917 Lawrence Co.
On Hollie's birth record, his mother is listed as Lizzie COLLIER. On Bessie's, her mother is listed as Mary COLLIER.
Now, sorry for the length here but bare with me please.
I believe that his first wife was Mary Elizabeth COLLIER, d/o Edward G. Collier and Lucinda PHILLIPS. The dates are right, she was from Lawrence Co., and Frank's brother, William Logan SLOAS married her sister, Lula May COLLIER.
Anyone with any documentation of this either way?
Thanks in advance for any information on these families.
