Job Loftis md. Elvira Goodlett Laban Loftis md. Elizabeth Holcombe(Laban Loftis was born ca 1760 in MD; died 8 Nov 1850 in TN.Elizabeth was born ca 1769 and died 29 Dec 1859 in TN.Laban and Elizabeth were married ca 1790 in SC.)
I am descended from two of Laban's and Elizabeth's sons:
William Loftis md. Elizabeth Loveall Thomas Jefferson Loftis md. Parlitha Gallion
My gr gr grandparents were Logan Harrison Loftis, son of Thomas Jefferson Loftis and Parlitha "Patsy" Gallion, who md. his first cousin, Malinda Loftis, d/o William Loftis and Elizabeth "Betsy" Loveall.
I descend from Logan's and Malinda's son, William Jefferson Loftis, who married Mary Ellen Dunnegan.
My maternal grandmother was the only daughter of William Jefferson Loftis' and Mary Ellen Dunnegan Loftis'; however, my grandmother had several brothers.
According to the book, LOFTIS AND THE DESCENDANTS OF LABAN LOFTIS, Laban and Elizabeth Holcombe Loftis had the following children:
John L. Loftis Unknown female Loftis Polly (Mary?) Loftis William Loftis Lemuel Loftis Thomas Jefferson Loftis Elizabeth Loftis James Madison Loftis Laborn (s/b Laban) Loftis, Jr. Male Loftis (shown 5-10 yrs. in 1830 census but not found on 1840 census--could have been a grandson or? Female Loftis (shown 5-10 yrs. in 1830 census and 15-20 yrs. in 1840 census-- could have been a granddaughter or?
I think that the young male and young female enumerated in Laban's and Elizabeth's household in 1830 could not have been children of theirs.It seems to me that Elizabeth would have been too old to have had children that age in 1830.
Please give me some information on your lineage. Also, please tell me how you are connected to Job Loftis.Was your ancestor a brother or a son of Job Loftis'?
