      There was a John Love in the War of 1812 who is listed in the North Carolina War of 1812 Muster Roll for Buncombe Co., in the Eighth Regiment,, Fifteenth Company, Detached from the First and Second Buncombe Regiments. I believe that some of the Love's settled in NC because Ebzan, Sr. married Emma Bailey in Madison Co., NC and a number of the children, including Ebzan Jr. were born in NC. Today there are descendents of John and Nancy Love's daughter, Martha Ann Love Hauser living in Franklin Township, Macon Co., North Carolina.

      U.S. Army, Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914 about John Love
      Name: John Love
      Birthyear: abt 1791
      Birthplace: Tennessee, United States
      Enlistment Age: 18

      I believe that our John Love was born about 1792 in Pennsylvania, in Chester County. His father was Samuel Love, son of William, source of the Will) and wife, Sarah. Also, that the record of John's christening in 1793 in Fagg's Manor Presbyterian Church, Chester Co., PA, was his record.
      John married Nancy Rinehart on October 29, 1818 in Greene County, Tennessee. Her father was thought by some to have been Johannes Reinhardt, born 1755 in North Carolina. Nancy's paternal grandfather is believed to have been Jacob Reinhardt who had come to America with his wife Anna Margaretha from Germany. I think this was the Jacob Reinhardt living close by in the 1830 Greene Co., TN census.
      John and Nancy settled near Limestone Springs, Greene County, Tennessee, in the Appalachian foothills of East Tennessee where they raised their children, who were:
      Sarah (Sally) Love, born abt 1820
      Hamilton Love, born abt 1826, m. Mary MNU
      Ebzan Love, b. abt 1827, m. 1st Emma Bailey, 2nd Sarah E. Darnell
      Luther M. Love, 1829, m. Bertha Lovette
      Harriet N. Love, 1832, m. William Rufus Stallcup
      Martha Ann Love, 1834, m. Ephraim Hauser
      The 1850 census for Greene County shows all 6 children still living at home, with the three sons all working as farmers on the family land.
      John died sometime between 1860 and 1870 near his home area of Limestone Springs, Green County, Tennessee. In the 1860 census he is listed as age 68, Nancy as age 66, with three daughters, Sally, Harriet, and Martha, along with Hamilton children. John is not found in the 1870 Census, nor any thereafter.
      Nancy was still living in 1870, and the census for Limestone Springs gives her age as 76 years old. Living with her is her daughter, Martha Love Hauser & her husband, Ephraim. Her son, Hamilton Love and his wife, Mary, are shown as living close by.
      Daughter, Martha Ann Love Hauser, died in 1914 at age 80 in Franklin, Macon Co., NC. Her father is recorded on her death certificate as John Love, born in Pennsylvania, and her mother is listed as Louise Rinehart. (MCM - 2003)
