Query: Jones/Loftin of Vermillion County

I am researching the Jones family of Rileysburg, Vermillion County, Indiana. Their farm was originally purchased by a Dr. Loftin. He was a physician whose farm specialized in animal raising. His daughter was Ada Loftin who married a William Jones. I'm not sure of the first name of Ada's husband--it could have been James. There were 13 children of David Jones in Ohio. Emily and Oliver Jones lived on the farm in Rileysburg. I would like to know how a Loftin bought land in Vermillion County, Indiana and why. Oliver Jones inherited the property from his mother (Ada) in the 1930's. His brother, Raymond, also got land there.
