On this page you can find tons of geneology research of the Lofton family.

I am a 9th grade honors student. My name is Abby Lofton and I have traced back many branches of my ancestors. I hope you are able to find something or learn something about my family history.

Special thanks to my dad, my great aunt, and many other family members for helping me put this page together.

For my project I wrote a paper on my family history. In this paper I had to trace my family history back to other countries and use push and pull factors to explain why they moved from place to place ending up where I live now.
