Thanks to your help, Joseph R Loftus contacted
me and we were able to exchange information about our Loftus Family
Mary Moss (nee Loftus)
Duane from the Great White North and my keyboard in the capital, Edmonton,
of the Kingdom of Ice.
Bob Coe here to report an unquestionable connection that definitely
links a whole string of lost Loftuses. Mike Loftus II listed Seattle
ancestry including my grandmother and great grandfather.
Granny's obit stated she was survived by "two brothers and a sister
in California." Mike's file names those siblings.
Hope others will look up BOB COE (Registry
Page 7) and see if there's a connection worth considering.
your links - Hambley's "Mayo," and Steve Loftus' UK contingent, etc.
Chance from your Canadian quasi-cuz,
Bob Coe, Edmonton, Alberta, Ca.
Greetings from California. I was just browsing through some stuff
on the web and came across your web page, and I'd like to congratulate
you on it.
My name is David Loftus, originally from Newport in Co. Mayo, now
living and working in Los Angeles, Southern California. Before I dive
into the rest of your website, I just thought I'd let you know
that I think our going global is long overdue! :-)
I hope to check back on this site from time to time, and will try
to stay updated on the progress you make through the site.
All the best (from a Mayo immigrant delighted to find this site)
Guess what! As a result of your website I was contacted by an actual
relative! Her name is Monica Kirk, and she is a direct authenticated
descendent of my immigrant ancestors, Patrick and Susanna Monaghan
Loftus. She was able to provide me with interesting information, including
the ship Patrick sailed on and the fact that he was a "wool comber"
in Ireland. Any idea what a wool comber does? Anyhow, thanks again.
Her sister in Nebraska has since contacted me as well.
All the best,
John Loftus, Seattle
