I am looking for the family and parents of Jared Sloas who married Mary Christina.They had the following known children:James David, Henry, Rufus, Catherine, John Peter, Laura, Polly Ann, Susanah, Mary and Marion.
Jared and his wife are buried in Ceres, VA reputedly the victims of a Shawnee massacre. I am aware of the thoughts that Jared descends from one of the Schlosser brothers - however, I do not feel that is accurate.The massacre occurence date has been argued extensively, depending on which Schlosser ancestory Jared is being "proved" to.
There were quite a number of Sloas families in MD, VA, KY and NC prior to the Schlosser's immigration to the colonies.I have found a James David Sloas living in MD who could possibly have been a father or grandfather to Jared.
Jared's son, David, is often referred to simply as "David"; however, his marriage record clearly names him as "James David".
I would appreciate hearing from others connected to this line who feel that the Schlosser connection does not fit and who are continuing to look for Jared's family and parents.
