Anne (Altimus) Loftus
I am hoping you can help me find some info on my Anne Loftus(also known as Altimus). She was born in 1801 in Ross, Ireland and raised by an uncle, Owen Eustace. She ran away to Newfoundland to marry Thomas Cooper, who was a catholic. They settled in Nova Scotia and I am one of over a thousand descendants. I see on the Loftus family tree an Anne Loftus born in that time frame and that her father Dudley died in 1805.
I have no clue where the Altimus came from, it just has always been used when referring to her.
Any help would be appreciated.
