One error in your listing of family is in Generation 4 under Reuben Walton and Elizabeth Bradsher children; regarding Loftin Walton born about 1808; he was not married to Nancy Black; she would have been too old for him. She married another Loftin Walton (ca 1775-1846); in 1806; who possibly was a brother to Reuben.

Loftin the son of Reuben Walton married Emily Wallace in 1848 in Person County. He had been married in 1833 to Nancy Snead; who probably died before 1848; after producing at least 2 children.

I have the lineage, family connections and sources to know for sure, Loftin Walton; son of Reuben and Elizabeth (Bradsher) Walton; was born about 1808, married Emily Wallace and had several children after relocating to Johnson County, AR in 1849 with others from Person County, NC.

I really hope that people will look at their trees and correct this erroneous information that has been circulating on the the internet of family trees. Please do some detective work yourself and check dates.

By the way, there is a book available on the internet for free download, written by a Foushee regarding life in Person County in the 1800s. Great reference.
