World Family Tree Volume 1, Tree Number 4949
James Sliman (the original spelling)and his father William arrived in America from Scotland in 1836. He lived in Washington Co., MD until he married in 1840, then he moved to Fulton Co., PA where he spent the rest of his life. The spelling of the name changed from Sliman to Slayman in the mid 1850's.
Other related names I am Researching: Dicken, Faith, Ford, Sharff, Trumpower.
I am looking for one of James's grandson's William who last lived in the Pittsburgh, PA area before I lost track of him. With this one exception my tree is fairly complete from the time James entered the country to the present day.
