Father: Gideon Loftiss
Mother: Martha Davis Loftiss

There is question over his place of birth. Family member death certificates that show him as their father, state he was born in Ireland. Other records indicate he was born in N.C. His father, Gideon, was born in the USA, so I feel this is a 'family story'.
