      Newspaper death announcement, Birmingham, Alabama, Age-Herald,
      January 27, 1917, page 7:
      "Funeral Services over the remains of Ebzan Love, age 56, who died at
      the family residence, 4704 First Avenue, Woodlawn, Friday morning will
      be held from the residence this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
      The deceased was an engineer on the AGS and was well known in railroad
      circles. He is survived by his widow, three daughters, Mrs. Ruby
      Tidwell, and Misses Sybil and Alice Love; two sons, L. S. and C. S.
      Love. Interment will be made in Oak Hill Cemetery.
      The following will act as pallbearers: Active C. C. Hafer, W. M.
      Davis, E. Self, W. T. Madison, R. W. Daniels, C. K. Hall. Honorary:
      S. C. Parker, J. C. DeHon, S. E. Sheets, T. Cummigs, E. C. Alexander,
      B. H. O'Brian, L. Dorough and W. A. Love."

      Ebzan is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, B'ham, Jefferson Co., AL in Lot
      7, Block 32.
      At the time of Ebzan Jr.'s death, Alice bought another cemetery plot
      in Oak Hill. She had their daughter Gladys disinterred and moved to
      the new lot. Ebzan was buried in the original plot beside his father,
      S. Ebzan Love, Sr. and stepmother, Sarah Love. When Alice died in
      1936 she was buried in the newer plot next to her daughter Gladys.
      There are no headstones for Ebzan Jr., Alice or Gladys. The
      superintendent of Oak Hill Cemetery informed me that many of the
      markers were made of iron and during World War II, some of the metal
      markers were removed, melted down and used for war materials.
