      1900 Birmingham, Jefferson Co., AL Census, vol 29 e.b.91 sheet 14 line
      22: enumerated 15 Jun 1900.
      Love, Ebyan w widowed farmer b. Feb 1827 age 73 TN Pct #8 (Ebzan)
      Love, Eugene M. w son b. Feb. 1885 AL, ore miner
      Love, Clide C. w son b. Aug. 1887 AL. at school

      Sarah died in 1895. What was Ebzan doing in Springville in 1880?
      Probably finding work. Record showed he had been without work for three months.

      He was listed in the Bham directories in 1890 as living at r Aven Ist.

      Birmingham, Ala. Directories ... 1888-90 records: Ebzan Love living
      at "r Avenue I between 17th and 18th in year 1890 ... occupation
      blacksmith".

      Sarah E. was his second wife and is buried beside him in Oak Hill
      Cemetery in Lot 7 north half, Block 32. His headstone is three
      concrete steps with "E. Love Sr." engraved on one step, Sarah has a
      regular stone with her birthdate, birthplace, death date and "Wife of
      E. Love Sr".
      I am told by my aunt Carolyn that there is a book on the Early History
      of Birmingham, AL, which has a photo of Ebzan Sr, standing in front of
      his Blacksmith Shop.
      Ebzan Jr's death certificate gives his mother's name as "Sarah". Emma died in childbirth with Edwin, I believe. Because he was so young, Ebzan Jr. would have only known Sarah as his mother. His biological mother was in fact,
      Emma Bailey. (MCM - 2003)

      TN State Library and Archives, History and Genealogy > Military Records Southern Claims Commission:
      Love, Ebzan County of Hamblen Claim Allowed
      (Allowed means that the claim was accepted and paid)

      Ebzan is found on a list of over 22,000 Southerners who filed a claim between 1871 and 1873 with the Southern Claims Commission, claiming their property had been taken by U.S. military personnel for use in the Civil War. His claim was allowed. The county listed was Hamblen.
      Such claims were allowed if the claimant could prove through the testimony of others that he had lost property, and was loyal to the Union during the Civil War. Although Tennessee, North Carolina and Alabama, the states in which Ebzan lived, were all confederate states, Eb apparently remained loyal to the Union (although some have said that many southerners did whatever they had to to receive compensation and did not consider it “lying” to “lie” to a Yankee...) Ebzan probably was loyal to the Union in spite of his sourthern roots--records show that his brother, Luther M. Love, fought on the side of the Union during the Civil War.
