My great-grandmother, Dee Sloan Pennington, was the daughter of Jackson Samuel Sloan and Malissa Caroline Potts. My "new" cousin is descended from Jackson's sister, Mary Sloan, and Malissa's brother, George W. Potts. A double cousin from both the Potts and Sloan families!
Who is this special cousin? Dorothy Carol Moore Dulaney, my husband's Aunt Dorothy who is married to Uncle Frank Dulaney. Aunt Dot's mother was Allie Mae Dodson, granddaughter of George W. Potts and Mary Sloan. Uncle Frank is visiting us this weekend while Dorothy is staying with her sister, and when Frank found out about the Sloan Reunion tomorrow he wondered if this was the same family of Sloans that Dorothy was kin to.... and it is! Can't wait to talk to Dorothy about our common Itawamba Connections.
