Loftin Family Reunion 2
For the Descendants of William Alexander Loftin & Laura Rossie Cranford

 

2018 - 20??

 
The Loftin Family Reunion started as a yearly birthday dinner for Ida Lillian Setzer Loftin, wife of Alonzo Lester Loftin, who was born 25 Apr 1884.  When all their kids and their spouses, grandkids  and Ida's siblings got together, it was a really big crowd.
 

About 1945

After the death of Ida Setzer Loftin, the Reunion embraced the larger Loftin family and became a reunion for
the descendants of William Alexander Loftin (1851-1939) & Laura Rossie Cranford Loftin (1855-1909).

Alex and Laura Loftin's children were: Alonzo Lester Loftin (1876-1937), Frances Ivey Loftin Drum (1878-1958), Zettie Wilson Loftin Beatty (1881-1956), Arthur Lee Loftin (1884-1950) and Cordie Band Loftin Wilson (1894-1981). Alex & Laura's children W. Garland Loftin (1887-1912) and Hattie Pearl Loftin (1890-1966) had no children.
 
 
 

Even though the Reunion is for the descendants of William Alexander Loftin and Laura Rossie Cranford, anyone is welcome to come and join us. We've had other Loftins from many parts of the USA to join us previously. The reunion is held yearly on the third Sunday in May.

 
 
 
 

2018 Loftin Family Reunion

 
 

The 2018 Loftin Family Reunion was held on Sunday afternoon, May 20th, 1:00 p.m., in the Family Life Center of the Catawba Methodist Church. It was one of our smaller groups, but the food was good and so was the fellowship.

With the death of Willie Goble Loftin on 06 Feb 2018, those who descend from Alonzo Lester Loftin have lost the last of our "aunts and uncles".
Willie was the wife of Sam William Loftin and mother to William Ray Loftin and Curtis Dean Loftin.

Willie always loved coming to the reunion but I know the next reunion we have with her, in heaven, will be even grander
