Re: LOFTON-DIXON Research MS & IL

I couldn't find Alma and John anywhere in 1910. This could be because the transcriber could read their names. Many of the pages from the 1910 Census that I looked at for Simpson were very faded and difficult to read. Some were complete illegibile.

1900 Census Beat 5, Simpson Co., MS
Peter Loftin Head B M b. Mar 1860 age 40 married 16 yrs b. MS Father MS Mother MS Occu: Farmer
Emma J Loftin Wife B F b. Apr 1870 age 30 married 16 yrs 8 children born 5 living b. MS Father MS Mother MS
Mary J Loftin Daughter B F b. Feb 1887 age 13 single b. MS Father MS Mother MS
Isaiah Loftin Son B M b. Jan 1889 age 11 single b. MS Father MS Mother MS
Sylvester Loftin Son B M b. Dec 1894 age 5 single b. MS Father MS Mother MS
William Loftin Son B M b. May 1896 age 4 single b. MS Father MS Mother MS
Ester Loftin Daughter B F b. June 1898 age 1 single b. MS Father MS Mother MS

After finding this entry I had a second look at the 1910 Census. Peter was listed twice. The first entry I pasted in my last post. This is the second entry:

1910 Census Harrisville, 5th Beat, Simpson Co., MS
Peter Loften Head M B 54 married 7 yrs - 2nd marriage b. MS Father MS Mother MS Occu: Farmer General Farm
Jane Loften Wife F B 48 married 7 yrs - 2nd marriage 4 children born 4 living b. MS Father MS Mother MS

Peter Lofton 12 M B Farm Laborer b. MS
Amy Lofton 8 F B b. MS
Needam Lofton 3 M B b. MS

I think this could be Peter with his first wife (maybe your John's mother?)

Anna Lofton Wife B F 20 married Keeps House b. MS Father MS Mother MS
