In Reply to: Loftus & Scanlin Ancestors from Co. Clare, Ireland by Darci Gibbs-Nunez of 980

I think we have some relatives in common.

Agnes Loftus, (daughter of Michael Loftus & Bridget McGloon) is my Great Grandmother. She married my Great Grandfather John J. Hanrahan (son of Andrew Hanrahan & Bridget McMahon of County Clare)

My Loftus relatives settled in Madison County Iowa. Here is a brief bio on Michael Loftus. I have a little more info on this Loftus family if you want it. Email me & let me know what you think.

I think I even have a picture of Agnes.
