For some of you, this might be your first time to visit our family genealogy website. For other, you may have been here many times before. Regardless, since this website has over 700 pages, and about 50 different family name. This page is my attempt to keep up with recent updates throughout the year. I will continue to try and keep the family apprised of deaths in the family, therefore I always welcome your emails or phone calls informing me when there has been a death in the family. Thanks. -Curtis-

1. I updated Page 4 for Curtis Dean Loftin as well as the Curtis Dean Loftin Family Studio Photos page. The largest number of photos have been added to the "Studio Photos" page. Some of the one of Curtis & Carolyn were added to "Page 4". These photos were taken last Thanksgiving Day at Philip & Leslie's house but Philip just recently finished with the editing and shared them with the rest of the family. The "Studio Photos" page also includes photos of the Seeses: Brad, Beth, Savanna & Ali. Be sure to check them out.
 
2. I updated the 2020 page for my youngest granddaughter Kayli. Check it out. KEL 2020. She is the daughter of Philip & Leslie Robinson Loftin.

4. I added links to our 2005 and 2011 trips to ISRAEL to the Where to Find 'Em Page and the Curtis Dean Loftin 1953 page.
 
5. I got a nice email from Marie Biggs who was in possession of a Grady Loftin Family photo album that her sister had found in an antique store and wanted to send it to someone in the Loftin family. After finding my website, she decided to send it to me. I was appreciative. When I get a chance, I'll scan the photos and share them. You can contact her at mariebiggs@aol.com .
 
6. I've been busy this month updating Curtis Loftin Family Vacations photos. We've visited Disney World in Orlando, FL, numerous times over the years and the photos are wonderful. I thought my children and grandchildren would enjoy these. I'm currently working on Epcot's World Showcase and the pavilions of the various countries there. Check it out. I created a new vacation page called Walt Disney World's EPCOT with photos from our various trips over the year.
 
7. Carolyn & I took our last trip to Disney World in 2015. I've created new pages to showcase photos from the trip. They include Dixie Landings, EPCOT, Disney Studios, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom. Be sure to check them out.

2. I added an newspaper article from 19 March 1987's HICKORY DAILY RECORD titled "Young and Old Follow Bandys' Basketball". The article talks about J.C. Goble and his love for sports, especially basketball at Bandys High School. J.C., age 70 at the time, could frequently be seen walking to the school on nights when there was a basketball game. Other names mentioned in the article are G.C. (Glenn Clustus) Lee, as well as Brian & Lisa Martin Harvey. Glenn Clustus Lee was the husband of Sallie Allie Loftin Lee and the grandfather of Lisa Martin. The article can be seen on J.C. Goble's page as well as the page for Sallie Allie Loftin Lee.
 
3. I updated the page for Allie Loftin Lee. With the death of Louise Lee Hoyle (d. 10 Mar 2020), Marcella Lee Wike (d. 25 Dec 2020) and Doug Bumgarner (d. 02 Jan 2021), it was a good time for me to re-visit the page and update information. I added the death dates for Louise and Marcella to the chart showing Allie & Glenn's children. I also added new photos of Allie, Glenn & their children - including a photo from Allie & Glenn's 50th Anniversary with all the kids. Check it out.

* Willie Thelma Loftin and Callie Elma Loftin were twins - born on 31 May 1911 in Catawba County, North Carolina.
**Daisy Pearl Loftin and "Infant Son 2" Were twins - born on 06 Jun 1914. "Infant Son 2" only lived a few days before his death.
*** The Catawba County Birth Index for this child, "Infant Son 33, shows that he was born 22 Oct 1922 (the same day and month as his older brother Oscar).  This child's Death Certificate shows that he died 27 Oct 1922 and that he lived for 1 day and 2 hours - so it's more likely that the child was born on 26 Oct 1922 - instead of 22 Oct 1922 as the Birth Index shows.  Cause of death was "malformation of upper air passage".
**** It's possible that this last "Infant Son" of Alonzo and Ida was born in 1927.  It is also possible that the grave marker for this "Infant Son" born in 1928 was incorrectly dated and should have been for the 1922 "Infant Son".
