A LITTLE ABOUT THE LOVE NAME:

WOLF TO LOVE

The name Love originated from the word for wolf, which was "Lupsus" in Latin, "Luefs" in French, and became "Lufe" or "Luiff" in old Scottish dialects.

In the middle ages the wolf was held in mystical awe, and the name Lupus was a name occasionally given to a warrior to honor his brave deeds. It appears occasionally throughout early history.

It was used as a surname in Normandy in the 11th century, and several of that name accompanied William the Conqueror when he invaded England from Normandy in 1066, including a nephew of William's who was rewarded with an English earldom. After that the name appeared occasionally throughout England, and then Scotland. There is a common thread that seems to tie all together - the coat of arms. Most of those bearing the name Lupus, Lufe, Love, or some similar variation, have had a coat of arms bearing three wolves heads, which would lead one to suspect a common origin for all.

A community of Loves had been established in the Glasgow, Scotland area prior to the 1600's, many of which then emigrated to the Ulster area of Northern Ireland.

LOVE'S IN AMERICA

Several Loves appeared early in the history of America. The first mention of a Love was that of John Love in Boston in 1635, and then a Richard Love in Virginia in 1642, although no records exist which tie these Loves to our family history.

Records also tell of one Ephraim Love who emigrated from the Ulster area of Ireland about 1740 and after living in Pennsylvania, settled in Orange County (later Augusta County), Virginia. There he was a Captain in the militia (Captain of Foot and Horse), and was prominent in affairs of the community. Some researchers claim he is the father of Samuel Love, who begins our Love ancestry, and his brother Joseph. Other researchers claim that is not necessarily so and believe that our Love line may have originated from an even earlier immigrant to the New World.

Although it cannot be said with any certainty that Ephraim was the father of Samuel and his brother, Joseph, it is generally accepted by researchers that Samuel and Joseph were born in America and were of Ulster Scot ancestry.

Some Descendants of Nigelli Luf


Generation No. 1


1. Nigelli Luf was born 1420 in possibly SCOTLAND, and died 1492 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND. His spouse is [--?--] at this time.

More About Nigelli Luf:
Nigelli Luf and wife are my maternal 13th great grandparents. In American his name would be NEIL or NIGEL LOVE. At this time, it seems that we can learn nothing further about Nigelli Luf's parentage. Since these people were mostly common folk, their ancestry is probably lost to history. Also, please remember that most of these dates are approximate and some are unproven. Please do your own researching if there is doubt.

Children of Nigelli Luf are:
+ 2 i. Johanni (John Love) Luf, born 1440 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died 1520 in Lochwinnoch Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND.  *My Direct Lineage*
3 ii. Thome (Thomas Love) Luf, born 1442 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died Unknown in Glasgow, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.
4 iii. Allane (Allan Love) Luf, born 1448 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died Unknown.
5 iv. Simoni (Simon Love) Luf, born 1450 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died Unknown in Auchinames, Kilbarchan Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND.
6 v. Patricium (Patrick Love) Luf, born 1452 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died Unknown in Overtoun, Kilbarchan Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND.
7 vi. Wilelmo (William Love) Luf, born 1454 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died Unknown in Auchinames, Kilbarchan Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND.


Generation No. 2


2. Johanni Luf (John Love) (Nigelli (Neil or Nigel Love)1) was born 1440 in Paisley, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND, and died 1520 in Lochwinnoch Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND. He married [--?--] Bet. 1455-1492 in SCOTLAND.

More About Johanni Luf:
Johanni Luf and wife are my maternal 12th great grandparents. The name JOHANNI LUF or LUIFF in our language translates to JOHN LOVE.

There is no written proof that JOHANNI LUF (1st generation JOHN LOVE) is the father of JOHANNIS LUIFE (2nd generation). In this time frame there are NO church registers for baptisms or marriages. There are NO town council minutes that have survived. There are NO testaments (wills) for the common people. So the following has to be based on "probabilities " and "possibilities" with considerable circumstantial evidence. Every mention of LUF discussed below is found in Court Records, Charters, Rental Rolls of the Monastery of Paisley, Chartulary of Paisley or in the books by 18th and 19th century historians who must have found their information in these same sources.

JOHANNI LUF (1st generation) was leasing land in 1460 from the Monastery of Paisley. It was on the outskirts of Paisley in Snawdoun which they called the "outfields". It appears he was the son of NIGELLI LUF who was leasing land at the same time in the same place. The reason for assuming NIGELLI was the father is because they were both still in Paisley in 1488 but by 1500 JOHANNI had gone down to Moniabroch in Lochwinnoch Parish. But there is no further mention of NIGELLI so I am assuming he had died and had been older than JOHANNI. Paisley was granted the status of a Burgh in 1488 and both JOHANNI and NIGELLI are shown as a Burgess. The granting of a Burgh status was extemely important to a town and it is thoroughly explained in the biographical notes for JHONE LUIFE (3 generation) in connection with Glasgow.

Children of Johanni (John Love) Luf are:
+ 8 i. Johannis (John Love) Luiff, born 1492 in Lochwinnoch Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died 1564 in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.  *My Direct Lineage*
9 ii. Walter Luiff, born 1494 in Lochwinnoch Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.
10 iii. Alexander Luiff, born 1496 in Lochwinnoch Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND; died in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.


Generation No. 3


8. Johannis Luiff (John Love) (Johanni (John Love)2 Luf, Nigelli (Neil or Nigel Love)1) was born 1492 in Lochwinnoch Parish, County Renfrewshire, SCOTLAND, and died 1564 in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND. His spouse is [--?--].

More About Johannis Luff:
This JOHANNIS LUIFE is a particularly mysterious supposed ancestor. We only have one specific mention of him. He is shown as being a tenant in Govan in the Barony of Glasgow in 1527. Govan is on the south side of the River Clyde at Glasgow. Of course it long since has been swallowed up by Glasgow and is now shown as one of their suburbs. The population of Glasgow at this time was only about 4500 men, women and children.

It appears JOHANNIS LUIFE arrived in Govan from Lochwinnoch Parish and his supposed father was JOHANNI LUF who had been leasing land from the Monastery in several locations in Lochwinnoch Parish since circa 1500. There is one other tiny bit of evidence which connects this JOHANNIS LUIFE to that area. In 1586 in a "Security Paper" it shows that ROBERT LUFE, the younger of Corselet, Kilbarchan Parish, was married to MARGARET LUIFE, daughter of ROBERT LUIFE, of Govan. This ROBERT LUIFE was the son of this JOHANNIS LUIFE of Govan.

Children of Johannis Luiff and [--?--] are:
+ 11 i. Jhone Luiff, (John Love) "The Elder", born 1540 in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND; died August 1595 in Glasgow, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.
12 ii. James Luiff, born 1556 in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND; died in SCOTLAND.
+ 13 iii. Robert Luiff, born 1550 in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND; died in Glasgow, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.  *My Direct Lineage*

Generation No. 5


19. William Luiff (Robert (Love)4, Johannis (John Love)3, Johanni (John Love)2 Luf, Nigelli (Neil or Nigel Love)1) was born 1580 in Govan, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND, and died 1645 in Glasgow, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND. He married Janet Walker 1600 in Glasgow Cathedral, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND. She was born 1581 in Glasgow, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND, and died 1656 in Glasgow, County Lanarkshire, SCOTLAND.

More About William Luiff:
We have a firm starting base with proof that WILLIAM LOVE arrived in County Tyrone at the beginning of the "Plantation of Ulster" by King James I. He is shown in the Patent Rolls as receiving his Denization (Citizenship) from King James I on 9 July 1616. Anyone who had been born before 1603 when King James became King of England as well as Scotland, did not receive automatic citizenship in Ireland. Rev. David Stewart in an article in Familia Magazine Volume 11 states WILLIAM LOVE settled in County Tyrone even though the Denization lists do not show an actual place of settlement. Even more helpful are the lists made by Sir William Betham. In his list for 1615 he shows WILLIAM LOVE with 18 other men arriving in County Tyrone. Two of the other men are WILLIAM and JAMES CUNNINGHAM who we know ended up in Donaghedy Parish. Two of the other men on the list are MATTHEW CRAWFORD and JAMES HAMILTON who are shown as servants of JAMES HAMILTON, EARL of ABERCORN. The original reference to the Patent Rolls is in PRONI file T 808/9445.

Before he left Scotland WILLIAM LOVE was Deacon of the Skinners Guild in 1605 when he attended a meeting of the Burgh Council. He was representing the Skinners Guild. This is shown in a book by John McUre published in 1736 called "A View Of The City Of Glasgow". This rare book is in my library.

JOHN LOVE died in Strabane, County Tyrone on 14 May 1629. In the will Index by Phillimore it states this is the death date and not the date the will was probated. My WILLIAM LOVE was a witness to the will. JOHN LOVE may have been a younger brother of WILLIAM LOVE but I don't think so for the reasons given below. I believe he was a son of WILLIAM LOVE. WILLIAM was the son of JHONE LUIFE the elder, of Glasgow. His mother was MARGARET PUDZEANE. The father died before 1611 and the mother before 1613. These details are shown in the testament filed for MARGARET PUDZEANE in the Commissariat of Glasgow dated 8 May 1613. Also shown in LDS film # 046892. Copy is in my files.

WILLIAM LOVE was married in Scotland to JANET WALKER (reference: WILLIAM DELOSS LOVE Manuscript). There is no way to check this marriage as the marriage register for the Cathedral of Glasgow did not start until 1609. I think they had a son, JOHN, born in Scotland before they left for Ireland with the Plantation in 1616. If he was born after 1603 he would not need a Denization certificate. If JOHN was born 1604-1608 it would make him a correct age for the fact he had no other children except the unborn child mentioned in the will when he died in 1629.

The last argument to support the theory that JOHN LOVE was the son and not the brother of WILLIAM LOVE is the information now located that WILLIAM LOVE already had a step-brother named JOHN who lived and married in Glasgow. This relationship is discussed below in the information that is now available about WILLIAM LOVE's father. A final argument that JOHN LOVE, of Strabane, was a son and not a brother to WILLIAM LOVE is his name. It was the custom to name the first son after the grandfather on the father's side of the family. We know now that WILLIAM LOVE's father was JHONE LUIFE so that fits the pattern perfectly.

In the William DeLoss Love manuscript it states WILLIAM LOVE returned to Scotland and died in Glasgow in 1645 and his wife JANET WALKER was still living in 1656. I have found his Administration Papers dated 17 December 1656 although a testament (will) was never filed. The notation on the Commissariat Record of Glasgow Index is "WILLIAM LUIF, sometime in Strayband (which must mean Strabane), indweller in Glasgow ". The latter means he was living in Glasgow but was not a Burgess. To be a Burgess at that time he had to lease or own "1 ruid of land and live on it". (A ruid of land was 1/4 acre). So we know for sure we have the right WILLIAM LOVE who received his Denization in Strabane in 1616 with the Plantation of Ulster.

WILLIAM LOVE returned to Glasgow but we don't know exactly when. We know he was still in Strabane in 1629 when he witnessed his son's will. In 1630 a Muster of Arms was taken which shows they were worried about attacks from the Irish Earls who were resisting the Plantation of Scottish and English settlers. In 1641 this attack came when Phelim O'Neill and Rory O'Moor invaded Strabane and burned the town completely. Of course the houses were all wooden and there were only about 208 men with arms who could defend. Most of the inhabitants fled across the River Foyle to Lifford. However some may have decided they had enough and headed back to Scotland. I believe this is when WILLIAM LOVE (1) left and we know he was in Glasgow by 1645 where he died. He evidently never owned any property when he got back to Glasgow and he never became a Burgess again as the Administration Papers just show him as Indweller. These Administration Papers are actually a Creditors Inventory. They were filed in the Commissariat of Glasgow on 17 December 1656. Shown on LDS film # 0231161.

Generation No. 6


26. Robert Love (William (Love)5 Luiff, Robert (Love)4, Johannis (John Love)3, Johanni (John Love)2 Luf, Nigelli (Neil or Nigel Love)1) was born 1630 in Cooly, County Tyrone, IRELAND, and died 1684 in Strabane, County Tyrone, IRELAND. He met Agnes Matthews Abt. 1650 in never married -- IRELAND. She was born 1631 in Cooly, County Tyrone, IRELAND, and probably died in Strabane, County Tyrone, IRELAND.

More About Robert Love:
ROBERT LOVE was a merchant in Strabane in 1655. It is not known whether this meant having a shop on Main or Market Streets. There were only about 500 people in Strabane at that time which would include men, women and children. In my files are photographs of both these streets as they appear in 1999 when my daughter Carole and I visited Strabane. Also a map of Strabane from 1909 and it indicates the areas where his shop was probably located.

ROBERT LOVE had a son baptized in Derry Cathedral on 24 December 1655. He named the son ROBERT but the baby was illegitimate and the mother was shown as AGNES MATHEWS. This ROBERT baptized in 1655 could be the same ROBERT LOVE who appeared in the Administrative Papers in 1684 when his wife CATHERINE GRANGER applied to represent their 5 minor children when ROBERT died. The fact the children were all minors would tie in with the father dying so young. However there is no proof to this connection.

Children of Robert Love and Agnes Matthews are:

Virginia Magazine of History & Biography, June 1990, vol vii, p. 252; "Ephriam Love came from Lancaster County, PA to Augusta County prior to 1750 and settled at the head of Muddy Creek in the present county of Rockingham about 8 miles NW of Harrisonburg. During the French and Indian War he commanded a company of Augusta county militia and on Sept. 2 1760, Daniel Calhoun and Major Calhoun were members of his company."

AUGUSTA MEN IN THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR (link)

Beginning in 1753 war raged along the frontier of VA, for more than 10 years. War in its most horrible form, for it was war waged with a savage people of the most cruel nature, encouraged and aided by one of the most civilized nations of Europe. This was the French and Indian War; the traditions of whose ambuscades, butcheries and scalpings are yet repeated by the descendents of those Scotch-Irish pioneers of Augusta, which at that time extended from the Great Lakes on the north of Tennessee on the south and the Mississippi on the west. It is seen that the present state of West Virginia was therefore a part of that county. A large part of West Virginia was peopled by growth westward of the Augusta settlements, and so it may be of interest to West Virginians to learn something of their warrior ancestors.

The battles, if they may be called such, and the isolated murders of this war with its other horrors have been so well written up by Hon. Jos. A. Waddell in his Annuals of Augusta County, that I shall not attempt to touch upon that part of the war. Some one probably asks, what then is left to tell. It may be answered, the names of those who had part in the war. In this day of patriotic societies, such as Sons of Colonial Wars, sons of the Revolution, etc. and ancestor hunting, a list of soldiers of those early days is welcomed warmly by a great many people who have not the opportunity themselves of searching original records or rare old books for the military record of some ancestor.

In Richmond is a great mass of certificates of soldiers who proved their services in the French and Indian War, and received grants of land from Virginia inn payment thereof.

The following lists of more than a thousand names are taken from Volume Seven of Huming's Statutes at Large of Virginia, which has been out of print since 1820, from the so called Preston Register, a part of the Draper historical collection belonging to the Wisconsin Historical Society. This list was printed in the VA Historical Magazine in 1894, and in the Annals of Augusta Co in 1902. I have also picked out the Augusta men from some lists published several years ago by the VA Historical Society. My object in reprinting these lists is to bring them to the notice of a greater number of people in this State than would have in the first named publications.

My first list of 729 names is taken from Henning. I wish to first offer a few explanatory notes before giving the list of names. In the original there are 22 pages of names jumbled together without any arrangement either alphabetically or by commands. Mixed through the list of soldiers are the names of people who furnished provisions and horses to the troops, and others who worked on the forts, etc. Many of the names appear several times, although the different items probably refer to the same man. Where there is no distinguishing mark as Sen., Jun., or rank, I have designated the number of entries for that name by a number immediately preceding the name.

Several of the names show some slight changes in spelling, and these I have grouped under the commonly accepted form, as for example McClung, appears as McClong, McClunge and McClung. I have thought best to not take up the large amount of space in the magazine that would be needed to give the amount of money each person received.

Although there are some names in the following lists of undoubted English or German origin I have thought it best to include them with those of the Scotch-Irish.

In Sept 1758, the House of Burgesses appropriated L20,000 to settle the arrears in the pay of militia, that had been engaged in the French and Indian War previous to that date, together with the accounts due for furnishing provisions, etch to the troops, and for work on the forts. Of this amount the Augusta people received L3,866-3s-5d or nearly three times the sum received by any other county.

Montgomery County, VA is now Wythe County, VA.

"Samuel Love and Dorcas Bell Love on May 22nd, 1766, conveyed to Joseph Love, Samuel's brother, (44 acres, part of) 300 acres on Black Run of Christian's Creek in Augusta County. Joseph already owned land adjoining this. On Feb 6th 1775, Samuel Love and Rachel, his wife, conveyed, by deed, to John Jasper, 265 acres in Augusta County, Joseph being a witness the execution of the deed. Later, and on the same date, appears that Rachel, Samuel's wife, was privily examined before Thomas Douglass, et al, in North Carolina. This was about the time that Samuel was in what is now Hawkins County, Tennessee, then Carter's Valley in North Carolina. Joseph left Augusta County in 1775, and settled in what was afterwards Montgomery County, then Fincastle County, Virginia. After Samuel left Augusta County and located in Fincastle, later Montgomery County, he married this Rachel, whose maiden name is unknown, and by whom it is not recorded or known that he had any children. What became of this Rachel is also unknown. This second marriage will, perhaps, be news to many of his present descendants, although the writer has a very indistinct recollection of having heard something of the kind many years ago. Dorcas (Bell) Love, wife of Samuel, died before he left Augusta County, and William, the youngest child, was taken into the family of the Bells, "South River Bells", and reared. These Bells lived on South Shenandoah, not far from Tinkling Spring Meeting House, and about 10 or 12 miles (east) from Staunton." [from "Loves of the Valley of Virginia", 1930, by Franklin D. Love.]

Both Samuel and Joseph Love were in Montgomery County as late as 1782. That year Samuel died, and his son, Robert, then twenty-two years old, on June 4th 1782, appeared before the County Court of Montgomery County, made bond and qualified as guardian of Samuel's children: James, Thomas, Sarah and Mary, William being with the Bells. Beginning with the early part 1776, at the age of sixteen down to and including 1782, Robert Love, son of Samuel. Was a volunteer soldier in the Revolutionary Was, and, as he states, each time enlisting from Montgomery County, Virginia. In the winter of 1775, and spring of 1776, Samuel and his sons, Robert, James and Thomas, left Montgomery County with the intention of exploring the country southwest, and finding some desirable lands upon which to locate and settle. They settled and planted crops (corn) that Spring at the forks of the Holston, in Carter's Valley, near (Long Island and ) Fort Patrick Henry, in what is now Hawkins (Sullivan) County, Tennessee. They were driven out shortly by the Indians, who raided the settlement, and inflicted injuries to some of the settlers: they later returned and again were driven out by the Indians. This time they returned to their farm in Montgomery County, now Wythe County, and remained, and there Samuel died. On May 8th 1782, Joseph Love, brother of Samuel, with others appeared in open court of Montgomery County, and asked for reimbursement for provisions and equipment furnished himself while on duty in North Carolina to Join Greene (Gen. Nathaniel Greene), which was allowed upon the proof offered the court. On the 15th Nov. 1799, Joseph Love, now of Wythe County, gave a bill of sale to Robert Sayers to a negro man. This is the last record of Joseph Love, brother of Samuel, in Virginia. [from "Loves of the Valley of Virginia", 1930, by Franklin D. Love.]

Samuel Love (ca 1739 - 1781): Samuel married Dorcas Bell, daughter of James "South River" Bell, in 1759 and shortly after purchased 300 acres on Christian's Creek, near Tinkling Springs, Virginia. Then, in 1774-5, Samuel and his brother Joseph relocated their families to a plantation in Wythe County, Virginia. It is believed Dorcas died shortly before this relocation.

Later Samuel made two attempts (1775-1777) to relocate his family to Carter's Valley, Tennessee, but fled both times because of Indian attacks. He returned with his family to his home in Virginia, where he died in 1781.

Samuel and Dorcas had seven children, including Robert and Thomas, both of who were prominent in the early history of Waynesville, North Carolina.

(Samuel9, Ephraim8, Robert7, Robert6, William (Love)5 Luiff, Robert (Love)4, Johannis (John Love)3, Johanni (John Love)2 Luf, Nigelli (Neil or Nigel Love)1) was born May 11, 1760 in Augusta County, Virginia, and died July 17, 1845 in Waynesville, Haywood County, North Carolina. He married Mary Ann Dillard September 11, 1783 in Greasy Cove, Washington County, NC (now called Erwin, Unicoi County, TN), daughter of Col. Thomas Dillard and Martha Webb. She was born September 21, 1767 in Virginia, and died March 25, 1842 in Waynesville, Haywood County, North Carolina.

More About Robert Love, R. S.:
Robert Love, R.S. (1760 - 1845): Robert was the first child of Samuel Love and Dorcas Bell, born in Augusta County, Virginia. His mother died when he was a teenager, and after that his father attempted to relocate his family, consisting of seven children, to the frontier of what is now Tennessee. There they experienced Indian attacks, and had to flee to safety. This is when Robert's military career began. "R.S." stands for "Revolutionary Soldier".

Robert had a long military career, as follows:
1776-1777: at age 16-17, Wagoner in expeditions against the Cherokees in Tennessee, where his family was attempting to settle.
1778: Sergeant stationed at Fort Robertson, Virginia, in expeditions against the Shawnee Indians.
1780: Lieutenant in actions against the Tories, western Virginia and near the Yadkin River, North Carolina.
1781: Lieutenant under General Nathaniel Greene in actions against the British General Cornwallis at Whitsell's Mill, Haw River, North Carolina.
1782: Lieutenant and Acting Company Officer stationed on the frontier at Fort Robertson, Tennessee.
1788: Colonel in command of North Carolina militia forces in actions against Colonel Sevier and the rebellious State of Franklin.
1788: Colonel in command of a regiment of Washington County men against the Chickamauga Indians.

Late in 1782 Robert moved to the Greasy Cove area in what is now Tennessee. There, in 1783, he married Mary Ann Dillard, daughter of Colonel Thomas Dillard and Martha Webb. He was twenty-three years of age at the time; she was sixteen. The Dillard family was from the same area of Virginia as was the Love family, and it is very possible that the marriage was arranged there by Robert's father before he died. This was a common practice among prominent families.

Shortly before his death in 1784, Col. Thomas Dillard named Robert as the guardian of his younger children. Robert later arranged the marriage of two of his Dillard wards to his own younger brothers. As such, there was quite a melding of the Love and Dillard families.

In 1784 Robert was selected to be a representative in the formation of a new State called Franklin and was instrumental in its initial organization efforts. Later, as a member of the North Carolina militia, he was required to lead troops to defeat the rebellious new state.

THE REBELLIOUS STATE OF FRANKLIN

The State of North Carolina at one time encompassed a large area, extending west of the Blue Ridge Mountains all the way to the Mississippi River. The inhabitants west of the mountains felt they had no support from the State in the form of a court system or a militia, and in fact they did not, and North Carolina even tried at one time to cede these lands back to the U.S. Government so it would not be troubled with them.

In 1784 residents of four counties began a movement to establish their own state, to be called Franklin (named in honor of Benjamin Franklin), and to separate from North Carolina. Robert Love was selected as one of the organizational representatives to meet in Jonesborough. A state constitution was adopted and a Governor chosen, the successful Indian fighter, Colonel John Sevier.

North Carolina refused to honor the separation and for several years the area found itself ruled by two Governors, with two sets of laws and two taxes. The situation became very testy and the people of Franklin formed their own militia for protection. They even considered seceding from the U.S. and joining with Texas.

The North Carolina militia was called out to quell the disturbance. Robert Love was an officer in the militia, and he felt he owed duty to it, even though he was part of the organizational effort to form Franklin, and was sympathetic to its cause.

There were battles, but casualties were light on both sides. For his rebellious actions Colonel Sevier was charged with high treason and the State of North Carolina imposed a death by hanging sentence.

When the Sevier government collapsed, and Colonel Sevier was about to be captured, he stated that he would surrender only to Colonel Robert Love (despite the fact that Robert Love was not the senior officer in the campaign). He did this knowing that Robert Love was an influential man of much integrity who would act in Sevier's best interests. And he did. Robert Love was able to save Sevier's life. After that Sevier raised another small army and this time devoted himself to eliminating Indians from the frontier, to considerable success.

THE GREAT GREASY COVE HORSE RACE

In 1788 Robert Love and Andrew Jackson first crossed paths to near unfortunate consequence. Both were proud young men, to which honor, integrity, pride, and fast horses meant everything.

Robert Love was a young man of twenty-eight years. He was a prosperous, politically prominent military man who had recently received much honor when Colonel Sevier surrendered to him to end the war over the rebellious State of Franklin.

Andrew Jackson was twenty-one years of age, recently qualified as a lawyer, who had been assigned as Attorney General and Public Prosecutor for the Western District of North Carolina (an area west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which now includes all of Tennessee, and other areas to the Mississippi River). This post had been created largely to placate the inhabitants of the Western District by providing them increased services after their aborted attempt at secession. On his way to Nashville, Andrew Jackson tarried at Jonesborough to take care of some legal work, and there encountered Robert Love.

Both men were known to own fine thoroughbred horses – each reputed to be the fastest in the territory. Naturally, pride and youthful competitiveness compelled them to challenge each other to a race.

A race date was set and broadly advertised, and people came from miles around to participate in the excitement. The night before much partying and drinking took place. Robert Love found a way to smuggle a bottle of whisky to Jackson's Negro jockey, while he locked his own in an apple house, away from temptation and dis­tractions, with a guard posted. In the morning, Jackson found that his jockey was in no condition to ride, so Jackson said that he would ride his own horse in the race (although he was not in much better condition than his jockey).

A huge crowd was in attendance, there was much betting, and much moonshine consumed. The race was close, but in the end, Robert Love's horse won.

Later, Jackson learned how his jockey got the bottle of whisky. He became incensed and confronted Love and accused him of cheating. Love responded by calling Jackson "a long gangling sorrel topped soap stick" and challenged him to a duel if he did not retract the charge of cheating.

Fortunately, wiser and saner minds prevailed. It was apparent that Love was more proficient in the dueling arts than was the youthful Jackson and because of that it would not have been a fair fight. The fight was called off and the two -- Robert Love and Andrew Jackson -- went on to become lifelong friends.

Late in his life, in 1839 when he was 79 years of age, Robert was having difficulty receiving the pension due him for his Revolutionary War services. He appealed to his friend, the former President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, to assist him. Andrew Jackson wrote the following letter on Robert Love's behalf:

Hermitage
October 12th, 1839

Dear Sir:

Your letter of the 26th ultimo has just been received, its contents being duly noted, I hasten to reply to it. I sincerely regret to find from the contents of your letter the treatment which that worthy man & patriot, Col. Robert Love, has received at the hands of the pension office - that a man who thro life has sustained such an exemplary character, his honesty, & probity should be suspected, in his decline of life, must be truly mortifying to him, as well as to the people of North Carolina who have shown by their repeated acts of confidence in him, their high estimation of his moral worth.

As you have requested, it gives me pleasure to state my knowledge of Col. Robert Love. I became acquainted with him in North Carolina. I think in the fall of 1784, and have known him ever since and hazzard nothing in saying that no man in this union has sus­tained a higher reputation for integrity, than Col. Robert Love, with all men and with all parties. Altho himself a uniform Democratic-Republican, and no man stands diservidly higher, as a man of great moral worth, than Col. Love's has always stood, in the estimation of all who know him - that his integrity should, in his old age, be doubted must be a source of mortification, not only to himself, but to every man in No. Carolina, where he has been so often honored by this confidence, as a public character.

I am with great respect yr. mo. obediant servant.

/s/ Andrew Jackson

When seventy-four years of age he was kicked in the hip by a horse and so crippled that he had to use a crutch the rest of his life. Before this accident he had ridden a horse or traveled about in a gig, which was a light, two-wheeled one horse carriage designed for speed. After he became crippled, he used a more sedate barouche, which was a four-wheeled carriage with a coach­man and drawn by two horses. As a very wealthy and influential man he had worn a powdered wig on formal occasions in his earlier years, and he maintained his old-fashioned attire, except for the wig, after fashions changed, wearing a blue swallow-tail and knee britches with silver knee buckles and silk stockings.

His wife, Mary Ann Dillard, died in 1842. Robert died three years later, at age eighty-four.

Largely because of his landholdings, his estate was one of the largest ever probated in North Carolina. Shortly before his death or in his will he gave each of ten children at least 500 acres of land, in addition to slaves. Twenty-six of his slaves were auctioned off after his death.
