Another Young Man

Luther Anderson Sloan

Luther was the "baby" son of Jackson and Melissa Sloan. He was born October 10, 1894 in the Cardsville community of Itawamba County, one of eleven siblings, and died in August 1973 in Aberdeen, Monroe County, Mississippi. As a young man, Luther was known to be rowdy. Or maybe more than rowdy as there are lots of "Uncle Luther" stories. Seems Luther was always getting into some trouble or another. He was married first to Emma Delia Bourland with whom he had two children, Senter and Carrie Avonell, and second he was married to Beulah Viola Hickman. Luther and Beulah lived on "Silk Stocking Row" in an old antebellum home in Aberdeen and raised their family of seven children.
