Have recently had access to family documents re: disposition of estates of Samuel & Nancy Love of Matagorda Co., TX. They list children as: 1. Cordelia/Cornelia Frances Love who married OHP (Oliver Henry Perry) Deen/Dean of St. Augustine Co., TX. Had three children: John, Calloway and Dora Dean. 2. Jefferson Franklin Love who died at age 20 in 1844. 3. Mary M Love who married John M Ogburn 1837.
Samuel died about 10 Jan 1835. Nancy remarried Joseph Dietrich 1847 and died 17 May 1849. According to family, Samuel received a land grant of a league of land plus, associated with the Austin Colony as one of the Old 300. Does any of this ring a bell with anyone? I am looking for the following: Is Nancy the Nancy Axum/Exum from TN? Is Samuel the son of Joseph Love II & Mary Marshall of TN? Is this Samuel the brother of John Gilbert Love and the uncle of Gilbert Harvey, William, David and Robert Love who were involved in the Texas Revolution? Cordelia's son John is my ggrandfather. Any help would be appreciated. TIA Patti Thomas
