Looking for Laurence Loftus
« on: September 25, 2013, 08:14:53 AM »
I am doing family research on my great-grandfather James Thomas Loftus. I have uncovered that his parents were Laurence Loftus and Bridget (Murray) Loftus.  James emigrated from Ireland to the United States between 1870 and 1880.  I am aware of two of his siblings who also emigrated, but would like to know if there were other siblings who remained in Ireland.  Some years ago, a Peter Loftus included a birth record on this site for a Thomas Loftus with the same parents.  I am trying to uncover if this is the same family.  I'd also like to find out where in Ireland James originated from and to find out more information about Laurence's and Bridget's family line. Any assistance would be most appreciated!  Susan

Hi Susan,

I found this in the Archived Forum.  I'm sure there is more.
But since this was from 2007, I don't know if the email address is still valid.

regards,

Duane

Susan,

I found another reference to Thomas Loftus being the son of Laurence and Bridget (nee Murray).  He was born 1864 in Killeroran Ireland.

  Name    Surname    Father        Mother        Nee              Date                Place
Thomas    Loftus      Laurence      Bridget      Murray      04/01/1864        Killeroran   

Found in the record of births.
