|Loftus Family Registry||
I hope I'm doing this right. My husband is James Aloysius Loftus, his father was James also, both born in Akron, Ohio. His grandfather was John Thomas Loftus, born in Steubenville, Ohio and his great grandfather was James Loftus, born in County Clare, Ireland. James came to the US at the age of 10 in 1851 with his mother Catherine Garry Loftus. Her children were Mary (Michael Clairy) Johanna (Michael Roach) Margaret (Michael Scanlon) Simon (Margaret Bolander) Bridget (William Brew) and James Loftus. James married Catherine Carmody who died the following year and there were no children. He married Bridget Flannigan in 1864. They had five children John Thomas Loftus (Catherine Forster), my husbands grandparents. We are planning a trip to Ireland in May 2004 and would love to hear from anyone who might have information about these people.
name is Alison Loftus and I have married Wayne Loftus whose father was
called Edward Loftus. We live in Prestwich, Manchester. Edward married
Elizabeth Loftus. Unfortunately Edward has since passed away. Wayne is
one of four children by Edward Loftus. He has 2 brothers, Mark and Glen
and a sister called Marie.
The family gets bigger as me and Wayne have three children, Alex, Lucy and Jack Loftus. Mark has 2 children, Sarah and Christopher Loftus. Marie has 2 children, Andrew and Gary (not Loftus).

They had several children, the second eldest of whom was my father, John McGrain Loftus born in Edinburgh on 9 November 1926

I hope that this is a useful addition to the Loftus web. I have countless cousins in Scotland and three somewhere in Canada (their mother was Cecilia Loftus, one of my father’s many sisters).
|Mary Loftus, Crossmolina Co Mayo||
Clarke married Mary Loftus. (Year approx. 1863 but not sure) They lived
in the Townland of Letterbrick, Crossmolina County Mayo. They were
They had a son, Thadeus and others. A daughter Honor (born March 28 1867) and others, a total of 8 children.
Honor married Owen Clarke of Ballina (not related) and had eight children - (2 died young) Mary, James, Owen, Bridget, Martin, and Margaret (my mother).
Margaret married Denis Ryan of Kilcommon Tipperary, and had 2 sons Peter and Terence, and a daughter Margaret Mary (ME).
|Lofthus or Loftus of Norway||
have a bit of information that goes back to about 1760 when Knut
Hellekson Lofthus married Joran Stensdatter, they hade a son, Nils
Olson Landsverk Lofthus who married Viel Knutdatter in 1800.
Their son Hellick Nilson Lofthus was born on this farm in about 1805. There son Hellick Nilson Lofthus, Jr married Bergette Nilsdatter in 1850.
The son of this marriage was Niels Nilson Lofthus, born July 28, 1852 at Kjarre Mumedal, Norway. As a small boy, he and his parents and sisters migrated to Wisconsin, USA. As a young man there he married the daughter of Claus Henderson( Margarethe) who was born in Lake Mills, Iowa on Nov. 25, 1860.
Margarethe was my great grandmother, and a few years after her and Niels were married, they moved in a wagon to Minnesota, where they homesteaded near Winger, just south of Fosston. There, my Great grandfather Niels Nilson Lofthus saw the need for a creamery so he opened one in Winger, he died in 1909 at the age of 57.
They had 10 children, and now they dropped the H out of Lofthus. The children were Helmer, Bernhardt (Ben), Martin and twin sister Nellie, Tina, Albert, Nellie, Mabel, George and Edwin. Martin's ( my grandfather), twin sister Nellie died of burns at 3 years old, so their next daughter was named Nellie.
In 1906 my grandpa Martin and his brother Helmer went to Saskatchewan to file for homesteads in Brockington which is north of Melfort about 18 miles.
Two years later Helmer froze to death while hunting Moose in the wilds of northern Saskatchewan so Martin wrote for brother Ben to come and join him.
In 1911 Margarethe with the rest of the Family moved by covered wagon to the homestead in Brockington, which is in the Carrot River Valley, very good farm land.
This strong Matriarch lived until March 17, 1921. She is buried at the Carrot River Valley Lutheran Church on the family plot, she lived to be 60 years old. Margarethe Lofthus”s headstone was the last of the (H”s) From now on it is Loftus only.
My father was Mervin Ingolf Loftus, and mom Evelyn Alice Brody.
Please advise if you have knowledge of this family.
Gary Loftus(email@example.com), Calgary, Alberta
Tina Loftus (Lofthus) we have never heard from, I believe she stayed behind when my great grandmother, with the rest of the family, moved to the Melfort, Saskatchewan area.
She would have been born about 1888, in Winger, Minnesota, and the only info I have is she married William Farmer of St Paul.
Mn and they had one son only??? he being Lawrence, so the offspring of Lawrence and etc I would like to contact.
Info on them would be great.

|Michael Loftus b. 1840 in County Mayo||
am Thomas Joseph Loftus (Tom). My ggf was Michael Loftus b. 1840 in
County Mayo, m. Bridget Hughes 1867 in Castlebar, Mayo; first child
Mary Ellen was born March 1868 in Castlebar. Her birth certificate
states her father had already left for US, New York.
Michael had served 1858-1862 enlistment Royal Engineers, 10th Company in China. He was tax collector for British Government in Shanghai 1862-c.1865, then returned home. He emigrated c. 1868, his wife and child followed (possibly) with his brother Thomas 1868-1870.
Thomas married Catherine Golden in New York and their son Thomas Joseph Loftus was born in New York. Michael, Bridget show up in East St. Louis, IL. in 1880 census. My grandfather Thomas Joseph Loftus was born in 1874 in East St. Louis.
I am named after him. This Loftus Family (Michael and Thomas branches) ended up in or near St. Louis, and the brothers are buried in Calvary Cemetery there.
I have been told by South Mayo Family Centre that the brothers are sons of Anthony Loftus and Maria McNamara.
I am interested in establishing /verifying this link to County Mayo. My ggf thought enough of his ancestry to have his t/s inscription state "Born in County Mayo."
I am interested in making Loftus/Hughes connections. Michael and Bridget were both born c. 1840.
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.
|Thomas Joseph Loftus||
I was just talking to some friends of mine in England and they told me that they ran into some Loftus' in Co. Mayo Ireland and so I thought I would get on the net and see if I could find some ancestry and I came across your site.
My name is Thomas Joseph Loftus and I was born in Waterloo Iowa. There are a lot of Loftus' in that area but they all originally came down from the Rochester Minnesota area.
My grandparents were Alaoucious "Thomas" Loftus (Died in 1991) and Eunice Loftus (living in Waterloo) and they had the following Children
Mike Loftus Deceased
Kay Loftus (Knebel)
Patricia Loftus (Philips) Deceased
Larry Loftus (My Dad)
Nancy Loftus (Jungen)
All of which still live in the Waterloo area and most of their extended families also live in that area. I live in Anamosa Iowa now. I served four years in the USAF in England from 1984 to 1988 were I met my wife Theresa who is English, so it is interesting for me to see the heritage behind the Loftus name. I know that there is a small town in northern England called Loftus too.
I will get some more information on my grandfathers brothers and one sister and add it to the list. He had 11 brothers and 1 sister.
i was taking a break from my college studies,really just chancing my arm on google by typing in loftus too see what happened!little did i know that i would come accross a well organised wealth of information!
Firstly i must congradulate you on the site,i cant get over the amount of loftus's there are,and who all seem to have originated from where i was born and bread.i think our family is linked to a ''sean mor loftus'' he was supposed to be the first loftus to come to the area of crossmolina.
My grandad made an audio tape before he died explaining where the family originated,and i have a booklet at home from lofthus in norway where we are all supposed to have originated from.
You might find the websites of www.deelrovers.com and www.crossmolina.ie very
interesting, thats if you have not come accross them already.
Well done again, and feel free to e mail me

|Margaret Loftus, 3rd Daughter of Henry Loftus||
I have been putting my family tree up on Genes connected and was trying to find dates of birth on the web when I found your site!
My great great great great Grandfather Sir Robert Wigram Bt. Great Grandmother was Margaret Loftus 3rd Daughter of Henry Loftus. Father of 1st Viscount Loftus.
Margaret married Hygatt Boyd M.P. , of Rosslare Co. Wexford.

Tress, and Helen (my mother). Tress aka Teresa Griffin is their only
surviving child at 96 years of age, and she now lives in Mattawan,

daughters, Barbara and Joan, and Mae four children, Richard, Jack, Ed,
and Claire, all of whom have children and some grandchildren. Edward
Thayne Loftus and Patrick Loftus never had any children. Oddly enough,
Isabel Loftus married John Loftus, no relation, so her name never
My mother was Helen Patricia Loftus. She married my father, George Fanning in 1935 and had three children, James, Judith, and me, Kathleen Fanning. We all grew up in Bloomfield, New Jersey. James now lives in Cleveland and Judith and I live in Berryville, Virginia. I am the only one of the three who married, and I had two children, Elizabeth and Victoria McDaniel.

Loftus resides in Ben lomond, Ca. with her children Keith Dean
Loftus-Funk and Kathryn Rene Loftus-Funk. Her parents are John Joseph
Loftus and Georgia Loftus. Maybe this will be good info for the
registry, we would love to see it grow!
Dave H. Funk (Galadriel's husband)
name is Camille Bailey and my grandmother was a Loftus. Her father was
Albert Loftus born 07/09/1893 in Liverpool, England. He had two elder
sisters Edith 1886 and Gertrude 1889 both born in Liverpool, England.
He had a younger sister Annie 1896 and a younger brother whom i have no
info on. My great grandfathers parents were James and Annie Loftus [nee
Tynon]. Both were born in Liverpool, England. James had a sister Mary
born 1851, but after that i can find no more info on their parents.
James was born 1860 in Liverpool. Annie was born in Liverpool 1868, her
mother was Mary born in 1837 in Ireland, but on 1881 census her father
had already passed away.
My great grandfather Albert married Alice Critchley 05/08/1917 in Liverpool and had 7 children.
Ronald 09/03/1921.He died 07/19/1944 in Belgium while serving with 9th Battalion The Cameronians[scottish rifles].
My nana Sheila Catherine 08/02/1927
I was wondering whether anyone had a connection to my Loftus family and be able to help me to continue my research.
i am a 17 year old student and i am very interested in my family
This is just a little bit of information passed down through our family, i hope it will help you and if you have any information please pass it on to me. My ancestor travelled over to England from Ireland during the potato fammine, jumped off the boat in Garston Docks in Liverpool and settled in the first street he got to. I dont know who he married but I know his son (my grandfather) married a Winifred Larkin. Apparently our family had a big estate in Ireland but my ancestor passed it on to his cousin instead of through the family. I dont know how much of this is true.
If you find any information on this please contact me and I will you as soon as i find any. Thank you
Ps, i have just been on the internet and translated the writing on the crest. ' loyal au mort' is french for 'loyal to the death' and 'prend moi tel que je suis' is also french for 'take me such as i am'.
|Frank Loftus from Youngstown Ohio||
father's father was Frank Loftus from Youngstown Ohio. My father was
adopted out at 1 year old. He was born in 1919, making Frank Loftus
born probably around or just before the turn of the century. Do you
know of any Loftus from there. I know nothing about the Loftus family.
|Mary Louise Loftus||
have recently begun to try to trace my heritage, with very little
information. I found your page and decided the little Loftus
information I have.
I am the granddaughter of Mary Louise Loftus, her father was James Loftus. My grandmother has 4 surviving sisters and a brother. They all reside in Williamsport PA. They are Irene Loftus (Shrimp) Lois , Genevieve and Jimmy Loftus. Sister Margaret Loftus as of last date is located in a convent in DE.
I know nothing about my granmother's parents, she is deceased and rarely spoke of them. I know very little about her immediate family.
I don't know if this helps or if you've come across and information that would help me but I wanted to write.
husband's name is Joseph Thomas Loftus. His father was Joseph Patrick
Loftus, and his grandfather was Patrick Joseph Loftus. Patrick Joseph
Loftus came over to PA from Ireland. My husband thinks he came from
Dublin. Patrick Joseph Loftus was married to a woman named Mary Cannon.
I know little else about the family at that early time.
My knowledge of his family is mainly of my husband's father's family. My husband's grandfather had Joseph Patrick, Eleanor, Veronica, Charles, and James. I am not sure, I may have forgotten someone.
No, of course all these children had children. I'm sorry, but I can't provide all their names because I don't know them. Of the few I do know, Charles's children were Eugene, Mary Beth, and young Charles. Veronica had children, but I know only the one, Joseph Gallagher who is married to Joan (?). James had children, but I only recall that one was named Bernadette.
My husband's siblings include Mary Teresa, then my husband Joseph Thomas, then Thomas James, then Francis.
Mary Teresa Loftus (deceased) had one daughter, Sandra Michelle who lives in KY.
Joe and I have four children, Joseph Thomas, Jr., Cynthia Jean Loftus, Susan Elise Loftus, and Patricia Loftus. We have ten grandchildren and one great grandchild. We live in Maryland.
Thomas James Loftus had three children, Thomas, David, and Karen. They all have children.
Francis Loftus had three children, Timothy, Christine Marie, and Pamela. They all have children.
My husband just came home and told me that
the uncle (his father's brother) I missed was Frank (Francis) Loftus.
Uncle Frank sent to school to be a priest, but changed his mind, later
married a woman by the name of Hope (last name?) from the Northeast.
They had one son, Michael. Michael is married and has children.
