I am searching for any information on Nancy Jane (East?) Lofton, wife of George Dalrymple Lofton. According to the 1870 census for Mississippi, she was born in Kentucky about 1817. Her headstone in Lincoln County, Ms. Friendship Baptist Churchyard reads 1816 as her year of birth and death in 1899. M. Stancil listed her as Nancy East in her Lofton Book stating the information was obtained from an "East Family Bible". The marriage contract issued in Franklin County Mississippi in 1844 has her name as Nancy Lofton. The 1860 or 1870 census for the George D. Lofton family lists her father as born in South Carolina and her mother born in Virginia. Does anyone have any information of Nancy's parents or where in Kentucky she might have been born. Also, in either of the census there is a Cannon older gentleman and younger female living in the same residence. Could they possibly be kin? These questions have been a stone wall for years. Would be glad to share information if requested. Thank you for any assistance.
