Lofton Family Genealogy Forum
Emmett Lofton is my grandmother's brother. Their father was Mosiah Lofton. His death certificate and obituary list his name as Mose but the records of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has his name as Mosiah. He was baptized in 1917, I have a copy of a church record that was submitted to the church by Joseph Stephen Lofton. Mosiah married Vera Estell Mitchell, her parents were Frank Mitchell and Fannie Mae Strickland. Mosiah's parents were Joseph Oliver Lofton and Eva Mae Jones. Eva Mae Jone's parents were Stephen Vinson Jones and Amanda Teel. Joseph Oliver Lofton's parents were Joseph Madison Lofton/Loften and Mary Jane Hall. Mary Jane Hall's parents were Enoch J. Hall and Julia A. M. Dawson. Joseph Madison Lofton/Loften's parents were Richard Yielding Loftin and Mary Bowen. Mary Bowen's parents were Sparkman Bowen and Elizabeth Colley. Richard Yielding Loftin's parents were James Loftin and Louisa Loftin (They were first cousins). James Loftin was the son of Elkanah Loftin and Rachel Herring and Louisa Loftin was the daughter of Elkanah's brother Francis Loftin. Elkanah and Francis Loftin were the sons of Benoni Loftin and Susannah Burtonshall. Susannah Burtonshall's parents were Richard Burtonshall and Margaret Elizabeth (Last name unknown) Benoni Loftin was the son of Leonard Loftin and his wife Elizabeth.
