My 3rd great grandfather was Laben Lafayette (Lafe)Loftis born 20 Nov 1819 in Jackson co, TN. He was the son of John Lafayette Loftis and Ermilla (Millie)Dill. He had 2 different families. He was the father of 16 children by Polly Morgan and 5 children by Polly Jones. He was not legally married to Polly Jones. She was on the other side of the county but apparently found out about his other family and left and went to KY. I come through their son John Bartley Loftis who moved to Crittenden co, KY. Anyone know anything more about this family???

I have just run across your message from last year about Labe. He was a GGGrandfather to me through Polly Morgan. This was the first I had heard of Polly Jones. Labe was killed when he fell off a cliff in the Blackburns Fork area of Jackson Co. Tenn. All the info I have gives his middle initial as "S". If you could help me work out this little difference, I'd appreciated it very much.

Your Labe Loftis could possibly be the son of Lemuel Loftis and Martha J Alphin Teel Loftis.
Martha was married once before and her husband was in the Civil War. .
I cannot be sure but I had just found some info on Lemuel from showing Lemuek's parents and they died in Jackson Co, Tennessee.
Lemuel married Martha J Alphin Teel in Randolph Co, Arkansas.
If you will contact me directly I will forward info to some other Alphin Researchers. They have worked on the family longer than I have.
