I am researching the two families above. I am somewhat sure Elizabeth's maiden name was "Love". Hoping to connect to their parents and grandparents. I found a Love family in 1850 in Henderson, NC with a daughter Elizabeth at the right age. It is Robert Love b. 1804 NC and his wife Eliza b. abt 1807 NC. The problem is, on the 1880 census Elizabeth shows her mother is born in SC.
I do not know when Francis M. Harper died or who his parents were. His daughter Elizabeth "Elizur" C. Harper married John Collins in Henderson, NC. I have the Collins history to Watson Collins and Mary Unknown. Its the Harper and Love (if that is the correct surname)where I am stuck.
Thanks for any time you have to give.
