Colonel Robert LOVE (1760-July 1845), Patriot, Frontiersman, Statesman, Benefactor and Founder of Waynesville, NC  He enlisted in the Continental Army when he was 15 years of age. When he applied for a pension, many years later, there was some doubt as to whether a man so young could have attained the rank of Lt. Colonel. President Andrew Jackson, a longtime friend of Col. Love's, wrote a letter, dated 12 October 1939, to the pension board to support his friend's claim.

There is no known image of his wife, Mary Ann DILLARD Love (21 September1767-25 March1842). Their son, Dillard Love (1789-1872) associated with Delilah INGRAM (About 1800-After 1845).

No photos are available of these ancestors. They had two children, Dillard Franklin LOVE and Sarah Anne LOVE (photo below). Several of the photos below are all courtesy of George Warren Love (1948-2004) who found them in his grandmother's photo album, so appreciation is extended to heavens for Gertrude Stuart Love, a lovely lady who so dutifully kept the album for her descendants
