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, # Do you receive the newsletter re: the Loftis reunion in Gainesboro TN August 9,2008?

Thanks for your reply....Wanda
