I am reseaching the following MAIN lines: LOVELESS, SAWRIE, BLAIR, TUCKER, DRABY, HOPKINS.
On my fathers line I can go back as far as Isaac Loveless. He apprears in the 1800 through 1820 Greenville Co. censuses. The earliest deed indexed is dated January 11, 1804. Greenville Bk G, p. 155. His will (Will Book B p.94) was undated, but probated March 5, 1827, Greenville Co. It mentions his wife Mary; sons: Nathan & Joseph, and two sons-in-law William Denson and John Shuttlesworth. In 1840 Greenville Co. census, Mary H. Loveless is on p. 246 near James Loveless and his sons. In 1880, four of Isaac's children give S.C. as the birthplaces of both Isaac and Polly. However, some doubt exists about Isaac's.
My father's line from Issac follows: Isaac, Blassingame Loveless, Thomas Jahue Loveless, David Lee Loveless, and William Daniel. The last three lived and died in Faulkner Co. Arkansas.
My mother's line is large and the main families that make up her line are the BLAIRS and TUCKERS. The Blair family I have back to the Carolinas. It follows: Information of William and Decendants are recorded in the South Carolina Society of the Sons of the American Revolution contributed by Harry Hilton Blair of Columbia, South Carolina. It was recorded on March 23, 1926 and the national number is 42395 and the South Carolina state number is 370. William Blair served as a sargent during the fight for American independence serving in Adam Alexander's Company, seeing service in Mecklenburg and Rowan counties, North Carolina and along the Yadkin river. The company was afterwards called Polks Company. D.A.R. records are colonial Rec. # 22, page 395 and D.A.R. National #123393, Sept. 15, 1915.

William Blair came from Co. Antrim Ireland to PA. Some researchers show 1750 and others show 1770 as his date of immigration. The family traveled down the great wagon road to NC and settled on Goose Creek in Mecklenberg Co. which later became Union Co. He is said to be one of three brothers, including possibly a James and a John who lived at one time in VA. He came to N.C. (near Charlotte) with two brothers, John and William. They were from North Ireland.

My grandmother was a Tucker. The following is what I have of her line. Caswell and Lucinda Staples Tucker lived and died in Tennessee.Ten of their 13 children went to Faulkner County Arkansas. At least four of the sons were soldiers in the Civil War fighting for the Union Army. They moved to Arkansas to homestead land. The Faulkner county archive said that there were 13 children and that a daughter married Andrew Jackson Battle. She is listed as the 6th child. Caswell Tucker was born in North Carolina but moved to Bradley County, Tennessee where he lived most of his life. He is buried in the King cemetery near Cleveland, Tennessee.
