Yes, David Love is related to me. He is a son of Thomas Love and Roseanna
McClure. I doubt you found parents for Thomas Love, he immigrated to
America in 1769 when he was 14. this information is found on his pension
application (Rev War). I have some more info if there is anything specific
you want to know.
