I am looking for Loftus Gray Born in Ireland March 22, 1838. Died Feb. 17, 1924 in Cuyahoga Ohio. Came to America I think in 1840 per the 1840 Census. His parents are no where to be found. Should have been married in Ireland. Not sure of date of their names. Also not sure of any Brothers or Sisters. Please help if you can. Liz

see under no. 3 Phillip Stark
Delia Loftus from Ireland
possible spelling change, to the new World?

better stated... sometimes... Sons carried their Mother´s maiden names as First or middle names... back in the day whan it became Culturally fashionable to have multiple names.

no I´m excited... here´s his wife- Anna too about just above mid page, of the same link.

3 John Stark b: July 26, 1874 in Newburgh Twp. , Cuyahoga County, Ohio d: December 13, 1955 in Cleveland , Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Liz, I hope this information is of some value to you. I believe this could be the Loftus, you are researching. Loftus Gray was the son of Charles and Mary [Murphy] Gray. They were married in wexford, Ireland in 1835. They emigrated to the U.S. in about 1842, settling in Brooklyn Township, near Cleveland, Ohio. The names of there children were Joseph, Loftus and Bryan born in Ireland. Charles, Isabella and Robert were born in the U.S.
The first name of Loftus was used in Ireland, during this time period. Thank's, Don

If that doesn't sound like Don has hit the bell!!!
Ding, ding, ding!!!
Great find!
