Janet,
Glad to get your message. I don't have proof that James Lovelace is my gggrandfather, but strongly suspect that he is. I knew my ggrandmother was a Loveless, but knew nothing about who her parents were & there is no one living that knew anything. She was Augusta Lee Loveless, born 1856 in Ga.

I was looking up census on another family member (whose name also started with an L), & loe & behold, believe I found my ggrandmother.

This was in 1860 Titus Co., Tx., pg. 229A.
Loveless, James, 28, SC
" , L. F., wife, 28, Ga
" , A. L., dtr., 4 GA (Augusta Lee Loveless?)
" , M. L., dtr., 1 Ga ("Lula"? I know that she
had a sister called
"Lula)
" , B. C., son, 0/12 Tx (This could be R. C.
instead of B. C.)
" , G. H., 22 SC (possibly George, bro.
to James.)

Then in 1900, Erath Co., Tx., Prec. 8
#141 Loveless, James, head, Nov 1831, 58,SC,SC,SC
" , Samuel, son, Mar 1884, 16, TX, SC,Ind
" , John, son, Nov 1886, 13, TX, SC, Ind
Cypert, Cora B., gdt., Feb 1879, 21, Ar, Ar,
TX

Living next door, in hh#140,is my ggrandmother & her family (Benjamin F. Gooden)

So I do not have any proof & have been unable to find where James was between 1860-1900, however, as he is living next door to my ggrandmother, I believe it is more than a coincidence. Obviously from the 1900 Erath Census, Lucretia must have died & James remarried & had 2 more children.

I would be more than happy to share any information with you & would love to see if you can shed some light on this.
You can email me directly. Marylynn
