About Slone Love

Slone was active in tribal affairs and accompanied the first large group that moved to the Western District under A M Upshaw, Superintendent of the Chickasaw removal. They arrived at Fort Coffee, near Fort Smith, Dec 3, 1837. Upshaw, Slone Love and others made affidavits regarding mismanagement of supplies for the emigrants en route. During the winter of 1838-39, Slone wrote letters from Breshy Creek and Fort Towson to Washington, requesting provisions until such time as the emigrants could make a crop. Most of these Chcikasaws remained in the vicinity of Boggy Depot and Fort Towson until the military post at Fort Washita was established in 1842, and some protection from the plains Indians could be afforded them. As a member of the Supreme Chickasaw Council in 1842, he helped effect a treaty between the Republic of Texas and the Caddo, Anadarko and Boluxi Indians. Warren, Fannin County, Aug 27, 1842...treaty of peace... between

 Commissioners.. of President Sam Houston (president of Texas) and the Chiefs,
 Headmen and warriors of the Caddo, Anadarko, Boluxie Indians. This desirable
 object was effected at the Chickakasaw Depot, in the Chickasaw Nation.
 Col. R M Jones gave them a talk... and was followed by Col. Slone Love, which
 talks were interpreted to them by the interpreter, Lewis Souchey.

Article of Treaty between chief of the Caddoes, Ionies, Boluxies and

 Nadargoes attested by J Bourland, W R Guy, R M Jones and Slone Love, Supreme
 Chickasaw Council.   Oct 12, 1842.

Slone Love's position as Commissioner required his traveling back and forth to the old district in Mississippi. He finally settled near the mouth of the Washita where he owned a horsemill, cotton gin, and operated Rock Bluff ferry across Red River. Another ferry was operated across Red River at the mouth of the Washita by an

 interpirsing Chickasaw named Sloan Love. He advertised his ferry services in
 the Arkansas paper which he said was "at the crossing of the main road from
 Fort Smith to Coffee's Bend and the forks of the Trinity in Texas; women and
 children of emmigrants free; a blacksmith whop opposite the ferry."

Slone Love brought many slaves to Indian Territory and was considered one of the wealthiest Chickasaws.* Updated from RootsWeb's WorldConnect via daughter Nancy Love by SmartCopy: Mar 20 2015, 2:57:08 UTC
