Near———–on Harpeth, 25th, of Nov. 1814 Dear Brother: I embrace this opportunity of writing a few lines by cousin Stephenson Bell, who will hand you this. It is with heartfelt emotion that I have heard of you still being in the land of the living, and enjoying reasonable share of health-having had it reported to me that you had gone to Orleans and died. My family, I left three weeks ago in a good state of health-thanks be to the Giver of all Good for His protection! Four

Letter from Thomas Love to his Nephew, James Robert Love

Letter from Thomas Love to his Nephew, James Robert Love, of Haywood County, North Carolina. Henry County, Paris, Tennessee. My Dear Nephew: 10 March 1843 I received your kind letter of the 23rd, Jan. 1843, which gave me much satisfaction to learn that my old and much beloved brother was still in the land of the living, and all friends in that County generally enjoying health. My family at present is in the enjoyment of reasonable health ever since you left me with the exception, of myself and Albert, who has not altogether recovered his health, but so much so

Address of Col. Allen T. Davidson at Lyceum Asheville, North Carolina

Extract from an Address delivered by Col. Allen T. Davidson, at Lyceum Asheville, N.C. Nov. 7th, 1890. “The most noted characters of the County who were in public life, were John Welch, General Thomas Love and Col Robert Love. These represented the County of Haywood for many years; preserved and maintained a high reputation until their death. Some of these had formerly represented Buncombe County in the Legislature; notably, Thomas Love, who represented Buncombe County from 1800 to 1808 (the sessions of the Legislature were then annual) afterwards served from Haywood form 1808 to 1828, perhaps, the longest service of

Letter from John Blair to Thomas D. Love

Letter from John Blair to Thomas D. Love Washington City, 3rd February, 1829. Dear Sir: Yours of the 20th, last month came to hand, to which I hasten to reply. You ask for information respecting the mode to be adopted in taking the next Census; and for my aid in procuring for you that appointment in Carter County. As to the inquiry, I can say the bill has not passed. Many members think it ought not at this term. I believe it should and that old mose of taking it is decidedly best. I am in favor of leaving responsibility

Robert Love – Will

(13 May 1842) Col. Robert Love’s Will, (1760 to 1845) In the name of God, Amen! I, Robert Love, of the town of Waynesville in the County of Haywood in the State of North Carolina, at this time being in reasonable health and sound and disposing mind and memory-thanks be to the Giver of All Blessings for his kind & tender mercies to me-but calling to mind the mortality of my Body, and believing that it is right and necessary for all men, as the Good old Book saith, to dispose of all their household and all the worldly concerns

Letter from John Crosby, Deputy Clerk, to Franklin D. Love

Staunton, Virginia, May 13th, 1903. Mr. F.D. Love, Georgetown, Texas. Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your letter of the 14th, of April, last, addressed to the Clerk, which has been handed to me by him for reply. Our records run back to 1745, the records show the names of Robert, Samuel, Ephriam and Joseph Love, who came to this county from Pennsylvania about 1747, but as these old records are poorly indexed and some of them not indexed at all, it is quite a laborious task to look up matters of this character, and I could not undertake

Letter from Col. Robert Love to Thomas Dillard Love – 27 July 1813

Waynesville (N.C.) July 27th, 1813. Dear Thomas: I have heard nothing from you latterly; What are your reasons for not writing more to me? I am at a loss to conjecture. The last account was by Robert Love(Who is he?-F.D. Love), and at that time you had scarcely recovered from your illness. Currency is given to a report which reached this place about two weeks ago; that Samuel had enlisted himself as a common soldier. Great God? what a delirium or delusion has his mind gotten into, if that is the case; for let a man’s patriotism or love of

Love, Maury County, Cathy’s Creek 19th Aug 1812 Dear Thomas: I got here last night and found your Uncle James’ family all well Although’

Letter from Robert Love to Thomas D. Love – 29 Nov. 1813

Soc***Grove, 29 Nov. 1813 Dear Thomas: I am told that you are very attentive and study very hard. The first, I am well pleased with, but your study ought to be so regulated as not to injure either your mind or health. I wish you would pay a little more attention to writing & spelling. If you appropriate only two hours in each day you might improve yourself much, and it might also be beneficial by relieving your mind when it is fatigued, which it is as liable to as the body after excessive labor. Learning to write a good

Thomas Dillard – Will

I, Thomas Dillard, of the County of Washington, in the State of North Carolina, do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament: First, I lend to my wife during her natural life, or widowhood, the whole of my Negroes, except those given by legacy, but in case of her marriage, that the help of said Negroes descend and be divided amongst my children here named: to Ben Dillard, Wennesoppea, Mary Ann, Thomas, Stacy, Martha, Amy, John and Rebecca, and the other part with all the stock and movable at
