Staunton, Virginia, May 13th, 1903.
Mr. F.D. Love,
I am in receipt of your letter of the 14th, of April, last, addressed to the Clerk, which has been handed to me by him for reply.
Our records run back to 1745, the records show the names of Robert, Samuel, Ephriam and Joseph Love, who came to this county from Pennsylvania about 1747, but as these old records are poorly indexed and some of them not indexed at all, it is quite a laborious task to look up matters of this character, and I could not undertake to furnish you with the information desired for a less sum that a fee of $25.00, on receipt of the amount I will gladly take the matter up and ascertain what the records in this office show in reference to the Loves, I have quite recently been interest in an other branch of this same family and have a great deal of information already compiled.
Yours very truly,
This is the place from which great-grandfather, Robert Love, came, and doubtless these records show a vast amount of information that I have not yet ascertained. It is not an established fact as to the exact number of brothers that this Robert Love had, nor has it been ascertained definitely that Daniel Love was his grandfather, nor is known exactly how many brothers his Father, Samuel Love, had, besides Joseph, who married a Tase. If these records were closely searched the whole thing would perhaps be solved.-F.D. Love
