Other Frederick Loftin

 

Born: 20 Jun 1886
Died:  14 Jan 1946, Catawba, Catawba County, NC

 
The third child born to Washington Lafayette "Fate" Loftin and Margaret Jane Lackey was Other Frederick "Fred" Loftin.  Fred was born 20 Jun 1886. 
 

There seems to be some discrepancy concerning Fred's first name.  On his headstone at Center Methodist Church in Catawba, NC, his name is listed as Otho Frederick Loftin, but his Death Certificate, the Catawba County Vital Statistics Record for Deaths, and his WW1 Draft Registration card all list his name as Other Frederick Loftin.  There is a "possibility" that "Other" was an incorrect spelling for the name "Arthur".

 
Fred's siblings were Pearl Mabelle Loftin, Patrick H. Loftin and "Infant Son" Loftin".                  
 
Fred married Nannie Elizabeth Lowarance, the daughter of Henry Durant Lowrance and Sarah Josephine Bost.  Nannie was born 232 Nov 1883 and was the daughter of Henry Lowrance and Sarah Bost.
 
 
Records indicate that Other Fred and Nannie Elizabeth had at least six children.
