My 2gr-grand father was Wright who was born c.1811; Loftin was his father and Olive(Olie) Hatcher (Hatch in some sources)was his mother. The 1809 date you have would correspond as the marriage date, since Wright was the 1st child and was born c. 1811. At the time he was born, the area where they lived was Carteret Co. but is now part of Duplin and Jones . We do not have any information any further back -- do you have any? If so, I would like to have it. Other children we have listed are: Caleb, Zenas, Elander(M. Jacob Turner), and Elizabeth (M. Lewis Brock). My line is Loftin, Wright (M. Hepsey), Waitessel Loftin (M. Barbara Rhodes), and Charles (M. Mattie Houston) my grandfather. Any info you have would be appreciated.
Thanks for the reply,
