I'm not sure if we are related or not, but my name is Thomas William Sloan of Oklahoma. My father's name was Thomas Earl Sloan and he was from Wewoka, OK (this is also where his body was laid to rest). I never knew my grandparents from his side of the family as I was told that they both died when my father was still a child. After they passed away, my father (Thomas Earl Sloan) was raised by my uncle William (known to most as Will C). Maybe it's all just coincidence, but I thought it was worth checking into.
