NOTES: Possibly killed during Civil War ??? His brother Henry B. was in the Union Army but I've never found service record for Thomas. I found a date somewhere that said he was killed in battle 9 Nov 1864 with the Union Army. Norma Yates Harris of Evansville, Indiana in 1996 says that he died 10 Aug 1865. If he died in August of 1865 then he was not killed during the war.

PARKER, Ephraim age 4, male, TN
PARKER, Zachry T. age 2, male, TN

NOTES: Did Matthew and family go to Illinois shortly after the 1860 census? Did Matthew die in Tennessee and then his children moved up to Illinois? Matthew's son Newton C. Parker enlisted 13 August 1862 in Company K 131st Illinois Infantry. Newton gave his residence as Gallatin County, Illinois. This is the earliest record I have of the Parker's in Illinois. Another records I found says that Matthew died about 1866 in Jefferson County, Illinois.

NOTES: Fran Burcham states that his first wife was Cynthia (Catherine) Ross. From the records of Fran Burcham she has his father as being James Parker.

NOTES: A descendant of Jasper Jackson Parker has a note that states that apparently Matthew and Levertious Spence Parker moved the family to Illinois in 1861 because he sympathized with the North on the question of slavery but did not want to fight against the South. They had more children while living there. The story is that, after her death, he contracted smallpox while on a boat returning to Tennessee and died in Cairo, Illinois (another account says he was put off the boat and died somewhere in Kentucky). The children were sent back to Illinois.


Cynthia ROSS

On 1830 census she is listed as age 30 to 40, Matthew was age 20 to 30.

NOTES: A descendant of Jasper Jackson Parker has a note that Cynthia had a sister named Eliza, who married a Bennett.


Elizabeth A. PARKER

She was 20 in 1850 still at home.

She was 30 in 1860 single, living with her brother William who was a widower.

She was 39 in 1870 single, living with Jasper and his family and her occupation was listed as apt. house keeper.

Apparently she never married.

Levertious Sarah SPENCE

She was 26 in 1850.

She was 40 in 1860.

NOTES: Her maiden name has been given as Spence, Spencher, Virch, Felton & McCernen. Also Bert ? (no last name), Forcus (as the first name) Felton & Sarah Spencher. These names were given on her children's marriage or death records.


Matthew PARKER Jr.

He is 8 in 1850.


Ephraim PARKER

He was 4 in 1860.


James PARKER

CENSUS RECORDS: 1830 Smith County, Tennessee
PARKER, James 1 male 70 to 80, 1 female 70 to 80


Elizabeth

Not sure if this is really her first name are not. Still need to do more checking.


Labon Lafayette LOFTIS

CENSUS RECORDS: 1830 Dist. #9, Jackson County, Tennessee page #142
LOFTIS, Labon 1 male 5 to 10 (Labon), 1 male 15 to 20 (Labon Jr.), 1 male 60 to 70 (Labon Sr.), 1 female 5 to 10 (?), 1 female 20 to 30 (?), 1 female 50 to 60 (Elizabeth)
(I would think that the two youngest are probably grandchildren. I believe the male 5 to 10 is possibly my Labon who was 24 in 1850 and married to Mary Jones. I believe the older female 20 to 30 name unknown at this time is possibly his mother and the unnamed daughter of Labon. I believe the girl 5 to 10 is possibly her child as well.)

CENSUS RECORDS: 19 Nov 1850 District #11, Jackson County, Tennessee page #323, family #1227/1226
LOFTES, Labron age 24, male, farmer, TN, married in the census year
LOFTES, Polly age 17, female, TN, married in the census year

NOTES: I can not find him listed with Polly and their children James, Susan and Mary, in 1860. They may possibly be listed in a neighboring county, but I have checked surrounding counties as well and so far have not located them.

NOTES: I know he has to be related to the Loftis family from Jackson County, Tennessee. But I can not find any that match in the Loftis Family Book. Could he be an illegitimite child to the daughter of Labon and Elizabeth Holcombe Loftis in the book who is not named?


Mary Ann JONES

NOTES: She was 17 in 1850 married in the census year to Labon Loftis.

NOTES: I could not find her and Labon in 1860 Jackson County, Tennessee. I also could not find her or any of her children in 1860.

NOTES: What is Polly's story, when did Labon die or leave? In about 1864 or 1865 she up and marry's Nathan H. Huff. Who according to his own descendants was the meanest man in Tennessee. She had at least 4 children with him and when her baby daughter Elvira Huff was tiny she left Nathan and took Elvira and her 2 Loftis daughters Susan & Mary and went to Kentucky in about 1872. When did she go back to Tennessee? Did she stay in Kentucky until after Nathan Huff died in 1898? She was buried at New Salem Cemetery in 1909 in Jackson county, Tennessee. Polly was the mother of at least 9 children.

NOTES: Received an email 6 January 2002, from Jodie Bowman Chinoy and she has found a divorce decree between Nathan Huff and Mary Huff his wife which was first filed on 3 June 1867 and was mentioned again as Nathan not having paid for the court cost for this divorce on 11 January 1869. If the divorce really happened in 1867 and the court is still trying to get payment for court cost in 1869, why is Mary (Polly) still with Nathan in 1870? Also Mary (Polly ) has 3 more children with Nathan, Nathan Jr. in 1867, Samuel H. in June of 1869 and her last child Elvira Elizabeth in February of 1871 and sometime shortly after that and before February 1873 she has left Tennessee and had gone to Crittenden County, Kentucky.

CENSUS RECORDS: 3 Sep 1870 Dist #11, Flynn's Lick PO, Jackson, Tennessee page #232, family #34/34,

LOFTIS, John age 6, male, TN

CENSUS RECORDS: 1 June 1880 Union, Crittenden, Kentucky film #1254410, page #2, family #17/17,
She is living with John and Susan Fritts and is listed as hired in the house. She also says she is only 48 years old. She also says she is a widow but I believe she was divorced from Nathan Huff, who was her husband after Lafe Loftis. She says that her and her father was born in Tennessee but did not say were her mother was born.

NOTES: Found her living with Elijah and Susan Loftis Haney in 1900 in Lyon County, Kentucky. She was going by the name Polly Keens so she had apparently married again. I have never found even one marriage record for her. She was listed as age 70 born Feb 1830, mother of 12 children but only 10 still living and a widow. I only have the names of 9 children did the others die young?? (June 15, 2000)

NOTES: I found out she died in Jackson County, Tennessee and was buried at the New Salem Cemetery. Go north towards Gainesboro you will come to Flynn's Lick just as you pass the little store there is a road to your right that is the New Salem Road go down that road about 4 miles are so you will go past the sign that says Jones/Huff Cemetery go about 1 more mile and on your right setting on a hill is the New Salem Cemetery. She is buried in the middle of the cemetery towards the back, next to the trees by her daughter-in-law Filena Loftis and some of her Loftis grandchildren. There are a whole bunch of Jone's buried there also, her brothers and their families. Her marker says Polley Ann Loftis mother of J. M. Loftis. A tender mother and a faithful friend. With her birth and death dates also. I took a picture of the marker on Sunday 17 October 1999 at about 9:30 am. Also pictures of quite a few other markers. It was really great to be able to find her and so many others of my family.

NOTES: I sent for her death certificate 29 Oct 1999. They sent my check back she was not listed in their state wide index. Maybe she died in Kentucky and they took her back to Tennessee to bury her. (17 Nov 1999)

COURT RECORDS: Jackson County, Tennessee Found in a ledger of deaths lists the following: Polly Huff died 28 Dec 1909 in Flynns Lick, age 75, married, cause "old age". (Info received from Jodie Bowman Chinoy 3 Jan 2002)


Thomas Jefferson LOFTIS

He was 8 in 1870 and the only time I find him is when he is with his mother and Nathan Huff. What happen to him, did he die young or did he leave the area???
