Does anyone know of any other family connections of this Labin LOFTIS family?
1850 Census of Henderson Co., NC, page 226;
#165-165Labin LOFTIS / 61 / M / Laborer / NC Elizabeth LOFTIS / 61 / F / NC Maria BOGGS / 10 / F / NC Hezekiah DRAKE / 60 / M / Farmer / NC Sally DRAKE / 30 / F / NC Henry DRAKE / 10 / M / NC Melinda DRAKE / 7 / F / NC Nehemiah DRAKE / 4 / M / NC Not named DRAKE / 1 / F / NC
I found on a genforum posting that a Solomon LOFTIS and wife, Margaret DILL had a daughter named Sarah LOFTIS who married William BARTON and had 4 children; Elvira BARTON, William BARTON, Thomas BARTON, and Solomon BARTON.
I aslo found that Hezekiah DRAKE, b. abt. 1790, Lincoln Co., NC, who married Sarah Elizabeth BARTON, in NC.
Was this Laban/Labin LOFTIS a son of Solomon LOFTIS and Margaret DILL?
I descend from Matthew Martin LOFTIS who married Permelia Ann MOORE, who married 1830 in Campbell Co., VA and migrated to Henderson Co., NC about 1832. They resided near the French Broad River. Matthew was thought to be the son of Reuben LOFTIS and a possible grandson or nephew of Vaden LOFTIS, who settled along the French Broad River, also.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Will be glad to exchange information.
