My cousin just sent me some of her notes.She had the following tidbit of data:
Notes for Melinda Edmona Loftis: Dau of John Thomas Loftis & Telitha Vines.
Do the names John Thomas Loftis and Telitha Vines ring any bells?
Remember Melinda was in the household of FM Treadaway and his wife Tolitha..looks like Tolitha/Telitha first married a loftis and second a Treadaway and perhaps this Melinda was d/o Telitha from her first marriage to a Loftis.I am just drawing conclusions (guessing) based on who was where in the census records...looking for confirmation.
Thanks for any help you are able to provide......Tina
