My name is Howard Koth. I'm a LCDR in U.S. Navy. My maternal Grandfather was Martin O. Loftus, son of John Loftus. John was a farmer and pioneer in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. John had 3 other sons - Julius, Arthur, & Theodore. Grandpa was the oldest - he got the farm - the other three went to Alaska in the 20's. They did all right and retired in Coos Bay, Oregon. Other relatives hail from Sand Creek, Wisconsin. Hope to hear from you.
