      Our Family Saga

      Per noted source: "Carolina Summers...." by Mildred Miller, page 6-7: Charles Lovelace did leave a will dated 08Oct1796 in Statesville, Iredell Co, SC which seems to conflict with conclusions in the the email discussions about who was his wife. I am interested in further discussions as my Summers have a connection to both Lovelace and Gaither so I invite anyone's contact on these matters. Lastly, I note that I have found issues with this source, mainly proof-reading errors but factual ones, as well.

      Statesville, Iredell County Book 1, page 5

      In the Name of God. Amen. This the 8th day of October One Thousand Seven Hundred and Ninety Six.

      I Charles Lovelace of Iredell County and State of North Carolina; being sick and weak in Body but of sound Mind and perfect Memory Thanks be to God all his Mercies; and calling to mind the Mortality of my Body and knowing that it is appointed for all men to die; do make this my last Will and Testament; that is to say principally and first of all, I reserve my Soul to God that first gave it; and my Body to be decently buried in the ordinary manner by my Executors; and touching such worldly Estate where it hath pleased God to give me in this life, I give and demise and dispose of in the following manner, Vis,
      Item I give and bequeath unto my Son Thomas Lovelace my Mill and Two Hundred Acres of Land to be laid off on the west side of the tract of land I now live on by a North and South Course to him and his Heirs forever, which Two Hundred Acres is to extend across my new Entry.
      Item I give and bequeath unto my son Rasemus Lovelace all the rermaining part of my new Entry that is joining of said Tract to him his heirs and assignees forever. One new saddle, one cow and six head of hogs that is running at home.
      Item I give unto my Daughter Cassandra, Negro Rach., one feather bed. Item, I give unto my Daughter Linny Summers Negro Bet.
      I give unto my Daughter Sally Johnson Negro Hannow and forth pounds North Carolina Currency. Item.
      I give unto my Daughter Nelly Gaither, Negro child Jane and Thirty Pounds North Carolina Currency.

All the rest and residue of my Estate both real and personal I leave to be equally divided between all my children that is to say Thomas, Rasamus, Cassandra, Eleanor, Salley, Linney and Ann:
      Last of all I order and ordain my trusty Friends Burgess Gaither and my Son in law Jeremiah Gaither, to be my lawful Executors; and do hereby disallow, revoke and make void all other wills here to for made; allowing this to be my last Will and Testament: as witness where of I have hereunto set my Hand and Seal the Day and Year above.

      CATHERINE (BEALL) LOVELACE
      Compiled by Beverly R. Allan

      While researching the Bealls in Rowan, Wilkes and Iredell Counties, North Carolina, I found records that show Catherine Beall, daughter of James and Margaret Beall, could not have married Charles Lovelace as has been claimed. The names of the children named in Charles Lovelace's will are not the same as those named as Catherine's heirs in the settlements of the estates of James and Margaret Beall, parents of Catherine (Beall) Lovelace.

      Will of Charles Lovelace - Iredell County, NC Will Book 1, Page 5, dated 8 Oct 1796 and probated Nov 1796.
      Sons: Thomas and Rasmus; Daughters: Cassandra, Anne, Linny Summers, Sally Johnston, Nelly Gaither and Eleanor

      NOTE: The wife of Charles was probably deceased as there was no mention of a wife in his will.

      Estate Settlements of James and Margaret Beall, parents of Catherine (Beall) Lovelace: Montgomery County, Maryland Will Book K, pp. 188-192 and 213-214.
