My Gr. Gr. Gr. Gr. Gr. Grandfather is James Allison Love (He was called "Grandshire Jimmy" ). I am trying to confirm some things,, I have been told he was born about 1748 possibly in Va. , , I have been told he moved from Pa. to Va. and not to long later to N.C. Another person has said from Tenn. It is for sure he was living and operating a platation with Slaves around 1770 very close to the current Reed Gold Mine in Cabarrus County, The written history I have even speaks of where his forgotten slave graveyard is located, He is also buried in an unmarked grave there where he lived so I have been told,, His wifes grave is marked, I want to find this small family graveyard, He is the earliest LOVE to this area. His son Jonah James went on to give the Land Loves Chapel Church is built on and had a large Platation several hundred yards from the church which should be a historical site, , I have his will and he left 45 slaves at his death to his children, This spot is a Historical and archeological treasure. there was a working Blacksmith shop, A 2 Story Plantation cabin that had a slaves cooking quraters attached and i have written history the slave cabins sat along the road between the main house and the church, Many, Many of these salves lay in an unmarked Graveyard just like his fathers do, Except this Graveyard sits right beside the church and eventually will be forgotten. The main question is--- Who were James Allisons Loves parents ? Also, I am trying to find out what Revolutionary War Unit he fought with, It could have been in Va.,Maybe Militia, I'm not sure and history says he was a fighting preacher in the revolutionary war. Thank Ya'll for any help and I have a great deal of family history if I can help let me know, Scott
