May I make a little suggestion? Sloan and Jackson are fairly common names, so dates of some kind would help. Do you know when and where John & Cynthia were born, lived, or died?

I found what looks like some of their children on the TX Dth Idx thru 1976:

Decia's DC says she was born in Grayson Co, TX, so I checked a book I have in my possesion (my husband and his mother both born there) "An Illustrated History of Grayson Co, TX", by Landrum and Smith:

SLOAN, John M. m 22 Apr 1858 Cynthia C., dau William Jackson

JACKSON, William b Tenn c 1810 -- m Sarah b Ala c 1815 -- Ch: Martha A. b Ark c 1835 (m 8 Mar 1851 Jams Longley, Josiah b Ark 1837, James P. b Ark c 1839, William A. b c 1841, Cynthia C. b Ark c 1844 (m 1858 John M. Sloan), Robert A. b Ark c 1846, Mary Elizabeth b Tex c 1848, Samuel b Tex 1850, Liea b Tex c 1852, America b Tex c 1856, George A., b Tex c 1859. Sources according to the book are from the 1850 and 1860 census.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- enter Jackson, Cynthia, father William, mother Sara, spouse Sloan. Several matches, but I clicked on the one with the most little icons. Looks like John Rose can take Cynthia's line on back a ways. Contact him, find our his sources and share what you know about your family.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
