Re: Loftis Henry/Louise Taff/JeffersonCo.TN
David Henry was the son of William Henry and Agnes Allison who were married in 1791 in Greene Co. TN.William married again to Sally Jones in 1811 in Jefferson Co. TN.
William had a brother Hugh Henry who married Martha (Patsy)Pullen dau of Loftes Pullen. They were married in Bath Co. VA in 1794. They also came to Jefferson Co. TN, and had a son Loftes P. Henry who married Susannah Jones, sister to David Henry's wife, Sarah Jones. They were daughters of John Jones and Ann Laymon (Lamon) of Flat Creek, Sevier Co., TN (just over the line from Jefferson Co. TN)
There was a third brother.John Henry was probably the oldest of the three.He was married to Jane Robertson.He was a Rev. War soldier.Jane Robertson was the daughter of John Robertson and Mary Lessley of Augusta/Rockingham Co. VA.Mary Lessley was the daughter of James Lessley and Sarah McCune.
Your Loftes/Loftis E. was named for the older Loftes P. Henry.Mistakenly, your Loftes E.'s marriage bond or license to the Taff says "Loftes P. Henry" quite plainly, but it appears to have been a mistake because on all other documents he is Loftes E. Henry!
