William Logan Loftis
I'm William Logan Loftis. (Are spelling variants allowed?) I live now in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA), but I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina - a town called Brevard. My father was John Edgar Loftis, Jr, his father was Sr.(of course), his was Andrew Jackson Loftis, and finally Vaden Loftis. Vaden moved to Transylvania County (county seat Brevard) from Iredell County in North Carolina on the Virginia border. Vaden (by family tradition) always claimed to be 'a good Irishman'. The 1790 US census lists a William Loftis, wife and son in Iredell County. Likely this was Vaden. Family tradition has it that three brothers came from Ireland (date unknown) - one went to Virginia, one to South Carolina and one to Philadelphia.
This is all I know and I'd like to know more.

Thanks, and good luck to all.
