Hiram did have a niece in Logansport, Henrietta Sloop Burch who died around 1851. Henrietta had a son named Hiram Sloop Burch who died as a young child. Hiram had a relative named Jacob B. Sloop born 1798 Redstone, PA. I'm curious if the initial B. could also be Brate or Brumbarger? Hiram 1806-1869 Any information always appreciated.
