You are welcome.

In a book I have entitled, "Western North Carolina A History from 1730 to 1913" by John Preston Arthur there are several references to Col. J.R. Love. In the county history of Haywood there is a brief biography of James Robert Love that says, "He was born in November, 1798, and died November 22, 1863. He represented Haywood County many times in the legislature. He married Miss Maria Williamson Coman, daughter of Col. James Coman of Raleigh, who died January 9, 1842, aged 75 years. This marriage occurred November 26, 1822. Charles Loehr, a German professor of music, taught his children music for years, and Loehr's son afterwards became pofessor of music at the Asheville Female college. Love was so anxious to encourage the building of the railroad that he set aside a lot for the depot long before he died. He bought large boundaries of vacant and unsurveyed lands, and died wealthy."

If I can be of further help, just e-mail me or respond here.
