According to US GenWeb Archives on the Sloan Plantation Cemetery, a cousin, Thomas Sloan, relocated tombstones in 1928 due to the area eventually being flooded by Lake Hartwell. Thomas Sloan said he moved 5 stones, that of Captain David Sloan, Sr, his wife, Susannah Majors Sloan, Elizabeth Sloan Stribling and her husband, Jesse Stribling, and the infant daughter of David Sloan, Jr, moving them to Andersonville Cemetery. It was not clear if the bodies were re-interred or just the tombstones relocated. (information from Anne Lewis Wheeler)
