I know its been a while since you wrote this.I am just starting to research Lovvorn but have a lot of info. that has been gathered byuy a relative.She has take us back from John Samuel Lovvorn (1868-1910 Randolph Co, AL and a brother of James Monroe's) to Gabriel Loving abt. 1725-1790.Differnce is you have a few extra Jameses and Johns.Here is the line she showed me, could you let me know where I can verify yours to mine?
from son to father: John Samuel -> James N. (some people say James thomas) ->William A. "Billy" ->James William Sr. -> Thomas Lovvorn or Loving -> Gabriel Loving
