My 3rd great grandfather John Love was born somewhere between 1790 &
1795 in Drumramer, Co. Londonderry; which is the Limavady area! He married Anne McAlister (known as Nancy) 2 Dec 1882 at Christ Church Drumachose Church of Ireland. He died 18 Feb 1854; Nancy died 21 Mar 1890. They are both buried in the Love Family Plot at Limavady, Drumachose Church of Ireland; Plot 11/14.
They had 7 sons & 2 daughters; one of their sons was John Love our 2nd great grandfather. He was christened 7 Mar 1830; so presumably born Feb of that year. John married Leah McLaughlin at the Killowen Church of Ireland in Coleraine 3 May 1865. At some point they moved to Londonderry and had 5 sons & 4 daughters; also raising a niece (Leah) as their daughter. John died 28 Oct 1907 and Leah on 12 Sep 1911. They are both buried in the Derry City Cemetery.
One of their sons was Johnston Alexander Love (known as Alex); our great grandfather. He married Isabella Fisher Chambers (known as Bella) at Saint Augustines (the little Church on the Wall) 5 Oct 1903. Alex died 25 Sep 1951 and Bella on 23 Dec 1962; both are interred at the Derry City Cemetery. They had 3 daughters and 2 sons; one of which was Jane Elvin Love… our granny! And… you know the rest of the story!
