We are seeking info on this particular Loving family here is why
We are Mitchum researchers
WE have documents that say Robert E Loving and his brother Thomas W Loving the children of Manuel Loving and LouAnn Fuller had a half sister.
WE are trying to clarify these documents.
The Fuller family is also involved
WE have a 121 page divorce papers for a woman named Eliza Jane (WE arent sure if her maiden name was Burroughs or Fuller) she first married a man named William Levi Noble Sr (son of Jameson Steen Noble and Louisa Jane Oliphant also of Sabine Co TX) William SR.died in March 1870 (1870 Sabine Co TX mortality schedule) they had one son William Levi Noble JR. In 1872 Eliza married James Nathaniel Mitchem in Sabine(the divorce papers give date and place of marriage as does Eliza's rejected CW Pension app on file in Hunt co TX) by 1880 they had moved to Lampasas Co TX (William Jr is now listed as William Mitchem)by 1889 they are divorcing becuase Eliza cheated on James. This affair is also documented not only in the divorce papers but a newspaper article as well where her husband James killed the man she was sleeping with)(his name was Joe W Harris alias Joe Wilson)
In the divorce records on file in Brown co Tx by the way
Thomas W Loving and Robert E Loving give statements stating they lived in Tyler Smith Co Tx at the time andthat Eliza Jane is there half sister.
But she states her father as Lawyer of Sabine and Galveston co TX James M Burroughs. James was born in 1824 in Tuscaloosa Co AL to Raymond Burroughs and Elizabeth Harris Foster)
However Eliza on all census records 1860 (she was age 8) Sabine Eliza is living with Powell W Fuller and Sarah ? (LouAnn Fuller's parents)by 1870 (she is listed age 18)still in Sabine Eliza is living with her son in the house hold of PP Davidson and his wife Melvina and living with them is Powell W Fuller and wife Sarah and Eliza now listed as Elisabeth Noble and her son William Noble JR.
I have Eliza's 4 obits that names one of her sons as William Levi Noble Jr it also states she was born in Sabine Co TX. and she was first married to William SR.
My delima is how can she be the half sibling to these Loving men and if so was LouAnn her mother and married or had her before her marriage to Manuel Loving. Or is she the sister in law of these 2 Loving men and Powell is her father and/or was Powell Fuller's wife Sarah married before to James M Burroughs or at least was the mother of Eliza. Was Powell and his wife Sarah Eliza's grandparents.
I have this all documented with paper. The divorce papers, the obits and I also have William Levi Noble Jr's obit.
Eliza Jane Burroughs/Fuller Noble Mitchem died on May 5 1933 in Terrell Kaufman Co Tx but is buried in Greenville Hunt co TX (East Mount Cem with no marker but is on cem inventory) we are in the process of trying to find her death cert in Austin or in Terrell. Kaufman co has no record. I have 4 different obits for her.
Any info you can help me with I would be most appreciative of

I also believe I have found the death records for LouAnn E. Fuller Loving as well. (1870 Sabine Co Tx mortality Schedule)listed as Elizabeth Loving age 34 died March 1870 of comsumption. Also listed is a Angelina Loving age 37 died Feb 1870 of Phenumonia
I have also traced LouAnn's sister Rachel Fuller Harris
