FAMILY OF SAMUEL LOVE AND ELIZABETH NATION

SAMUEL LOVE was born about 1763 probably in Frederick County, Virginia or North Carolina, and died before August 04, 1829 in St. Clair County, Alabama.  He married ELIZABETH NATION March 30, 1789 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, daughter of CHRISTOPHER NATION and ELIZABETH SWAIM.  She was born about 1762 in Virginia.

 Notes for SAMUEL LOVE:

Samuel and Elizabeth Nation Love left Mecklenburg and together with many of Elizabeth's siblings, settled in Greenville Co., SC where they became members of the Clear Springs Baptist Church.  Record from the Clear Springs Baptist Church, Greenville, SC (3 miles from Spartanburg Co., line) indicates the following:

              23 Apr 1803, Christopher Robins was received

               22 Oct 1803, Nancy Nations was given letter of dismissal.

               26 Jan 1805, Samuel Love & wife Elizabeth dismissed.

               22 Mar 1806, John Nation & wife given letter of dismissal

               22 Mar 1806, Brother Robins ATC (?)

               22 Apr 1809, Christopher Robins & wife Hannah DWD (?)

 Samuel is enumerated on the 1800 Greenville Co., SC census with 3 sons under 10, 2 daughter, 1 under 10 and 1 from 10-16.  Samuel apparently leaves his wife and young family in the care of Elizabeth's brothers and ventures down to AL in search for new land.

 20 Dec 1811 Madison Co., MS Territory/Greenville Co. SC Court Records: The following Power of Attorney was recorded in SC:  "I, Samuel Love of Madison Co., Mississippi Territory, give power of attorney to William Ashmore and John Nation to recover, Tabb, a Negro woman who has absented herself from me."

 In 1813 a Samuel Love is listed on the Taxable Property List of Clarke, Co., Mississippi Territory.

 In 1815, Rebecca M. Love married George Thomas in Madison Co., Mississippi Territory.  During this same period Sarah Elizabeth married William Ragsdale.  Samuel's family has thus joined him by 1815.

 In 1816, Samuel Love is listed in Baldwin Co., with another male over 21 and 5 slaves.  From this and the Power of Attorney, it might appear that Samuel was engaged as a slave trader during this period.

 Samuel is enumerated by a nickname "Shem" in the 1815-1817 census of Monroe Co., Mississippi Territory.  He had settled on his land and he and his wife are shown with 3 sons and 2 daughters all under the age of 21.

 Samuel patents his land on the second day (3 Jul 1821) that the new Land Office opened in St. Clair Co.   It was certificate # 22 and granted him two tracts totaling about 70 acres in Section 33, T16S, R1E.  The land he received was at the south edge of what is now White's Chapel, AL and has now returned to wilderness.

 Samuel died intestate in 1829.  His son-in-law-John Lawley was appointed administrator of his estate by the Special Orphans Court of St. Clair Co., of August 4, 1829.    The probate records of the sale of his property included all of his known children.
