In assisting other LOFTIS descendants in connecting the ancestral dots...We have come up with a Job/John Loftis in Fairfield Illinois, Wayne County listed in the 1840 and 1850 Federal Census for said locaiton; and the 1855 Illinois state census in Wayne County IL. From this data, Job/John was born in South Carolina in approximately 1812.
From this point, this Job/John's Loftis family descendants migrated to Nebraska and beyond after Job/John's death in Wayne County IL between 1855 and 1860. He shows up in the 1855 Illinois State Census with known wife and children of that timeframe; said wife is HOH in federal 1860 Federal Census with known children in the household.
Family story goes that this Job/John may have run away at an early age...winding up in Fairfield, Wayne County Illinois....
Can anyone shed some possible light on the parents of this Job/john born in approximately 1812 in South Carolina...leaving that area early? Got a missing ancestor that you might not know what happened too?
