About Andrew Love

DAR Ancestor #: A071805

Andrew became a colonel in the local forces and was wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain. Andrew Love also served in the state legislature.


Birthplace seen as Turkey Creek, Edgefield, South Carolina. However:

A user Carolyn-cmlove46 writes:

"I believe he was born in Lancaster (or possibly Chester) Co. PA (that part of Lancaster became York Co in 1749, just 2 years after he was born). His father, Alexander, was elected coroner of York Co, PA in 1751 and 1752 and is named in various court records in that county until 1763. In 1765 Alexander bought land on Fishing Creek in that portion of NC that became part of SC in 1772 when the line between the 2 states was settled. Because Alexander was in the Carolinas by 1765, it is probable that Andrew and Ann were married in SC rather than PA but I haven't found proof of either place."

"Regarding Andrew's mother, Margaret Moore (I've never seen her middle name as being Miller) wrote her will in 1806 and it was probated in early 1807 so she died between those dates in SC."

"One other point: The suggestion that Andrew's son, Robert, was involved in the death of James Ford is erroneous as Robert died in SC well before James Ford was killed."
