Daniel Loftus - /Ireland /WV /USA
I am a descendant of Daniel Loftus, who immigrated from Ireland with his wife Ann Monihan and at least 5 children in 1847 to work on the B&O Railroad. I have not found him in 1850 yet, but his records from 1860 through 1880 were in Fairmont, Marion County, WV.
His eldest daughter Catherine (my great great grandmother), married Kieran Kenney (nee McKinney) in 1855 in Fairmont. Daniel's daughter Ella married Lawrence Horan. His daughter Margaret married John Flanagan. Daughter Annie never married. Son Anthony died at age 22 from TB (consumption) while working on the RR. Catherine was old enough to be working on her own when they immigrated, so it is possible that there were other children that I am not aware of.
Catherine was never in the census records with her parents. Do you know of anyone who is searching for Loftus descendants from Fairmont, WV? I am also looking for anyone from the Flanagan and Horan families in that area.
