Lorene, Sorry for the delay. I don't have much on Berryman H. Loftis. I am trying to identify him because I think he might be a brother to my ggggrandmother Priscilla Loftis Hudson. Priscilla Loftis Hudson, my ggggrandmother, is the primary person whose parents I am trying to find. She was born 1816 SC, lived with her sister Matilda from an early age in TN, married in 1845 in Benton Cty, AL, died 1881 in Cherokee County TX. Her parents may have been from VA.
Her sister, Matilda Loftis Boyd born dec 11, 1798 VA, married 1816 Blount Cty TN, died June 4, 1890 in Cherokee Cty, TX. Her husband John Boyd died Benton cty AL 1856.
The only information I have on Berryman Loftis which I have not confirmed is that he was married to Elizabeth Boyd Loftis b1793 SC, and that he died in 1847 in Rusk Cty TX. This is second hand information and I have not confirmed it. I too am searching for Berryman Loftis to aid in my search for parents of Priscilla Loftis. Danna H.
