Catherine V. Lovelady Looney - AL - Fannin, TX
Posted by: Julie Coker (ID *****0145) Date: April 13, 2009 at 09:11:05

Hi all,

I am seeking help with finding the parents of Catherine V. Lovelady. A few trees have her parents listed as William H. (1797) and Mary Orlena Malone (1801). I have found Catherine on the 1850, 1860, 1870, 1900 and 1910 census (born in AL or MS and in Fannin Co., TX in 1900). The 1850 census shows her married to George W. Luney with one child (Mary) in Noxubee, MS. The 1860 census shows her with 3 children (Mary, Orpha (I believe this is Ophelia), and Edna) and she is listed as Lovelady - living in Morgan, AL. Her husband apparently died in 1857. All other census show her with the last name Looney, and the children's names confirm that this is her. I have a letter written by her to my ggrandmother, Ophelia Looney, and have photos and home movies of Edna, who lived to age 104. I also have a letter written to "Cousin Ophelia" from a W.M. Lovelady in 1931 living in Tampa, FL.

Can anyone help me figure this out? I would love to find out who Catherine's parents were and who W.M. Lovelady was. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
