Loftis and the descendants of Laban Loftis
by Jimmie R. Loftis and Bobbie H. Bryant, 1993

A wonderful book! About 550 pages, hard back with gold foil letters on cover. If you descend from a Loftis in theTenn/Ark/Oklahoma area, you'll probably find your ancestors here.

I understand this book is now sold out.
Join one of the Loftis Descendants Facebook groups (or all of them) to try to get your hands on a copy.
Good luck!
