Though we don't know the parents of George and his sister Nancy we do know this about the family Lineage.
Due to religious
persecution in Scotland our ancestors moved into northern Ireland in the last half of the Seventeenth Century. Thus
our Scotch-Irish heritage.
We have been able to document our Loves back to 1791 when George Love, his wife Mary Isabella Smith and their seven children
along with George's sister, Nancy, her husband Benjamin Anderson and their six children sailed from Ireland to New York.
These two families then traveled to Washington County, Pennsylvania where they purchased land. Records indicate there were
Love's and Anderson's already living in the area and this may be why they decided on living in Washington County.
In 1800 George and family moved to Belmont County, Ohio where they bought a 160 acre farm two miles south of Shepherdstown,
Belmont Co., Ohio.
