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-

FAMILY: Loftin
(Beatty, Corzine, Cranford, Fisher, Givens, Harwell, Kaiser, Lanier, Lomax, McCorkle, Rudisill, Sherrill, Upright, Washington, Work)
 
1. OBITUARY: Douglas "Doug" McArthur Bumgarner, 78, of Terrell Passed away on Saturday, 02 Jan 2021, at Catawba Valley Medical Center. He was born 16 May 1942 in Iredell County, NC, to the late Carl Daggett Bumgarner and Fannie Ethel Goodman Bumgarner.

He was an advid gardner, a #1 fan of Bandys High School Sports and member of the "Goldmine Gang".

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Marsha Spake and husband Johnny; great-granddaughter, Allie Lee Burt; brother, Harry, George, Hugh, Carl, Jack, Thomas and Fred Bumgarner; sisters, Ruby Carstarphee, Betty Craft, Arvella Flowers and Jean Flowers.

Those left to cherish his memory are:
*Wife of 59 years, Janice Lee Bungarner of the home. [Janice is the daughter of Glenn Custus Lee and Sallie Allie Loftin Lee.]
*Daughters: Deannie Owens and husband Ronald of Catawba; Tina Drum and husband Smitty of Terrell.

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.

**** "Infant Son 4" Loftin 1928 1928 [Died in Infancy]
* 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".
