CartographerS


James Ferrell Croft (February 27, 1942 - August 21, 2008) was a professional cartographer. Born in McAlpin, Florida, Croft was an incredibly popular personality in Levy County, Florida, at the time of his death. He enjoyed boasting that he 'had a million friends'. Croft will also be remembered as a master cartographer with a keen memory for detail. He started his career in cartography at J.M. Smedly Publisher in Deland, Florida, where he did map drafting, blueprints, and map advertising layout, from May 1, 1965 until December 1, 1970. He then worked for Real Estate Directories, Inc. as the supervisor of mapping and the Deland office office manager. He was vice president, cartographer, and production manager for Lloy-Gillin-Croft Maps, Inc. from January 15, 1972 through March 1, 1975. Then, he opened Croft Land Surveying with his brother Daniel M. Croft, which operated from May 15, 1975 until January 15, 1987. The bulk of his career, however, was spent as the cartographer for the Levy County Property Appraiser's Office, where he spent thirty and a half years. He worked for Levy County until he retired. Croft died unexpectedly after a short illness not long after he retired from the county property appraiser's office. Learn More...
