    An American Family
    The History of the Loveall family in America.
    By Micheal Sullivan

    The founding of the Loveall family in the United States has been traced to Rev. Henry Loveall, who is also known as Desolate Baker believed to have been his real name. Henry Loveall was born in Cambridge, England around 1694.

    As a young man it is reported that he was involved with a woman from his church , it is not known if he was the Pastor of the church or not. After b eing accused of "an enexcusable immorality" he fled the city of Cambridge to avoid prosecution. It is believed that Henry Loveall emigrated to t he American colony of New York by changing his name from Baker from signing himself up as an indentured servant.

    By 1725, at the age of 31 he was relocated to the colony of Rhode Island where it is said that he was Baptized.

    It is at this time that the first mention of his spouse is made, although when they were married is not known, it is known that they already had two sons. Henry and Martha Loveall moved to New Jersey sometime before December of 1731 because a son named Luther was born on December 24 th of that year at Piscataway N.J.

    On January 3 ,1732 Henry Loveall was ordained as a preacher but he was not listed as a pastor of any church at the time. A fourth son was born on September 26, 1734 in Piscataway, N.J. named Calvin, this son may have died as a child as no mention of him has been found for him after this time.

    By 1742 Henry's two oldest sons , Zebulon, and Ethan had moved to Maryland. It is in this year that Henry Loveall made his way into Baltimore County , Maryland. In the area known as Chestnut Ridge lived a land owner name Henry Sater. Mr. Sater who was known for his desire to have a Baptist Church in the area, asked Henry Loveall to preach for him and other Baptist in the area.

    Mr. Sater and Henry Loveall, were of a group known as " General Baptist ". At his own expense Mr. Sater built a Meeting House of red brick to be u sed as a church. On November 17,1742 Mr Sater deeded over the meeting house amd one acre of land to the church. At the time the church was caller Saters church, however this church that was begun in 1742 by fifty Seven members is now known as Chestnut Ridge Baptist Church and is located in a suburb of Baltimore, MD.

    By an act of the court on August 4,1743 Henry Loveall was granted the right to preach in Maryland. Although there were others who had preached for this congragation Rev. Loveall can be said to be the first Pastor of the church.

    In four years the young congregation grew to one hundred and eighty one members and had spread to Virginia. Despite this growth the church members would not participate in the Lords Supper or Communion as there seems to have been an " unhappy situation " , this could have been because of the practice of the laying on of hands and foot washing that was practiced by the church.

    In 1743, Henry Loveall moved to Opequan, Berkeley Co.,Va. [ now W.Va .] to help start a church there for some former members of Saters church. When he went to Virginia some said he took another mans wife.

    This church soon developed some type of trouble and they sought help from the Philadelphia Association [ a Baptist Organization ] .

    Rev. Loveall was turned out of the church for "misconduct and for a licentious life style".

    By 1751 Henry Loveall returned to Maryland and Chestnut Ridge area. In his absence Mr. John Davis had become the resident pastor at Saters Church. There was in all probability some conflicts between the followers of the two pastors. Henry Loveall seems to have been controversial in his time and was sometimes accused of not living in a manner not in keeping with the teachings of the church. Henry Loveall was reported to have been a man of talent and an acceptable preacher.
    Henry Loveall, is known to have had the following children:

    Zebulon born 1715-1725 Died before 28 Jan.1786 - his first wife was Mary West, and had six children...second wife was Margaret[-----] no issue.

    Ethan born 1715-1725 Died before 12 Jan.1795 he married Mary Alspaugh
    - had seven Children.

    Luther born 31 Dec.1731 Died before 10 Jan.1821. he married Mary Lane and second Rebecca Arnold. Had a total of seven children.

    Calvin born 26 Sept.1734 no evidence he lived beyond infancy.
    It is not known when Henry Loveall died - but he was living in Chestnut Ridge area in 1772. it is also not known for sure if Martha was his second or only wife.

    Henrys age at death was 81 yrs.[est.] It is thought that Rev. Henry Lovea ll was buried sometime around 1774 in a Cemetery near Mexico, Carroll C o. Md.

    Now, let us go back to Virginia, where a congregation was organized on Opeckon Creek in 1751. Volume II, pages 26 and 27, of Benedict's History says:

    In the year 1743, a number of the members of the General Baptist church at Chesnut Ridge, in Maryland, removed to Virginia, and settled in th is place; the most noted of whom were Edward Hays and Thomas Yates. Soon after their removal, their minister, Henry Loveall, followed them, and baptized about fifteen persons, whom he formed into a church on the Arminian plan.

    Mr. Loveall, becoming licentious in his life, was turned out of the church [Life of Gano, pp.40 and 50], and returned to Maryland; and the church was broken up, or rather transformed into a church of Particular Baptists, in 1751, by the advice and assistance of Messrs. James Miller, David Thomas, and John Gano, who was, at that time, very young.

    Mr. Miller had visited this church in some of his former journies, and had been instrumental of much good among them; and when they, in their troubles occasioned by Loveall's misconduct, petitioned the Philadelphia Association for some assistance, he and Mr. Thomas were appointed by the Association for the purpose. Mr. Gano, though not appointed, chose to accompany them.

    The account of this transaction is thus given by Mr. Gano: "We examined them, and found that they were not a regular church. We then examined those who offered themselves for the purpose, and those who gave us satisfaction, we received, and constituted a new church.

    Out of the whole who offered themselves, there were only three received. Some openly declared, they knew they could not give an account of experiencing a work of grace, and therefore need not offer. Others stood ready to offer, if a church was formed. The three before mentioned were constituted, and six more were baptized and joined with them.
