Well, it seems we are cousins, indeed.I haven't taken time to see how many times removed.I found you in the book, which I do have. I see a very nice photo of the William Curry line.
My line starts on page 101 with Francis L. Loftis, and I am on page 104.It is so difficult to put ancestors and descendants in the proper place.My cousin Jack Masters has a book ( which I was fortunate to help with my own line) and it is so easy to see who belonged to whom.
I knew the descendants of william Marion Loftis personally, as my great aunts, and grandmother..The Masters family married into the Loftis family, so we have several double cousins. I spent much of my young days on their farm in Jackson Co., TN., near Hilham.
Have you been to that area?
I am several years older than you, according to page 86, # 188.8.131.52.8.4. Do you receive the newsletter re: the Loftis reunion in Gainesboro TN August 9,2008?
