GRANDSIRE JIMMY HAD A SON NAMED JAMES

We have believed for many years that James Love who left a last will and testament in Campbell County Georgia is the son of Grandsire James Love who settled in early Cabarrus County NC. Proof of this is found in an undated petition to construct public buildings in Concord, the county seat of the newly formed Cabarrus County. The petition dated roughly 1794 was signed by both James Love Senr and James Love Junior. Beyond this proof, naming patterns for James Love Junior’s family includes a son Ingraham Love in honor of his mother, Mary Ingram Love. There are other hints including the documentation of neighbors in Georgia who had also been neighbors in North Carolina.

Having just turned a new page in my life, I’ve spent the afternoon enjoying a subscription to newspapers.com, a retirement gift from my wife Christina. My very first discovery using this new tool can be found in the following legal advertisement.
