William Augustine Love

In William R. Love's book this person is identified as "Samuel Abbott William Augustine" (b. Dec. 17, 1755).

WorldConnect Post-em by Carla Love Maitland on 26 Nov 2006.

"Some members of the Tennessee LOVE family believe that Samuel Abbott LOVE and William Augustine LOVE are the same person: Samuel Abbott William Augustine LOVE. This idea has been passed along to members of the family over the years. One proof of this theory appears to be found in "Tennessee Genealogical Records", Edith Rucker Whitley, published by Genealogical Publishing Co., 1980. In the Extracts from Legislative Petitions: No. 166. "Conveyance of Stockley Donelson to John LOVE, Josiah WATSON and Samuel LOVE for 5000 acres, witnessed by George Gordon, Jr., D. Squire, Samuel A. W. A. LOVE, Charles J. LOVE, Washington J. Washington and George Gordon. George Gordon appeared before John Gregg, J.P. for Green Co., and deposed that in the spring of 1795 he made a survey for S. Donelson in the county for 5000 acres and in the month of July following, John LOVE of the State of Virginia purchased a considerable quantity of land from S. Donelson., etc."
