    from FRANCES LOVE FERGUSON (649) -- HER ANCESTRY AND FAMILY, UNDATED, BY THOMAS H. DAVIS, EDNA BOYD ROTEN AND FRANK D. FERGUSON, JR. The following excerpt was taken from that document:
    ....
    Robert (401) and Eleanor Love (402) arrived in York County, South Carolina on Feb. 1, 1791, via Charleston from Ireland bringing along their family of six children. They were accompanied by his brother Andrew Love (2150) and family. Their home had been in the Townland of Crew, Parish of Ardstraw, Barony of Strabane, County Tyrone, Ulster, Ireland.

    Details of their voyage have been passed down through their descendants about how the trip was disrupted by a great storm that drove the small vessel south to Jamaica where it became so hot that the pitch with which the wooden ship had been caulked, started to melt.

    Immediately after becoming settled in York County, they began the necessary chores of preparing for a crop for the family's survival. They had joined a cousin, William Love (), who had earlier settled on Buckshorn Fork of Bullocks Creek and this group was later joined by his brother, another Robert Love (), who had been living near what is now Salisbury in Rowan County, N.C.

    Robert (401) and Eleanor Love (402) settled their family on Clark's Fork in what has been described as the Indian Land, where they farmed and he became a distiller. They and many of their descendants are buried in the lower churchyard of the Beersheba Presbyterian Church. Their family included Jenet (Jane) Love (641) (1763-1850) who married Thomas Wallace (642); John Love (398) (1865-1849) (married in Ireland to Miss Margaret Rippa [399]); William Love (623) (1767-1849) (married in S.C. to Miss Nancy McHarter [625]); Frances (Fannie) Love (649) (1768-1858) who married Robert Ferguson (650); Elizabeth Love (643) who never married (Correct: Born 1776 in Ireland - 1850 U.S. Census Henderson County, N. Car. with her daughter Eleanor Love [648] who married Solomon Smith [659] - died after 1850 Census. Elizabeth Love [643] married her Cousin John Love [644]); and Robert Love III (624) (1776-1848) (married Miss Sarah McHarter [626], sister of Nancy McHarter [625] of S. Car.)

    Some very interesting information concerning the migrations of these Love brothers and cousins is contained in letters written by those still remaining in Ireland and between those in America.

    One letter in particular, written in 1790 by an in-law, Andrew Gibson () of Lefnagir, Tyrone, epitomizes the whole Scotch-Irish sentiment over the centuries. He expressed the opinion 'that his relatives were Blessed [sic] living in a land of liberty and free from the great oppressions of the landlords and everyone in authority, indeed poor Ireland labors at this [sic] present.' He lamented that 'he and his wife were too olde [sic] to undertake the dangers of the trip to America.'

    We can assume that these were the reasons that the Loves and many other Ulster-Scots came to these shores. The Loves were truly Scots, having descended from the mythical three Scottish brothers who came from Scotland, one to Brady near Strabane, one to Scarvaghherin and one to near Omagh. Those who came to America were Protestants fleeing from the increasing large tolls of the landlords and the taxes imposed upon all, regardless of faith, for the benefit of the Church of England. Once they tasted freedom and the rights of ownership to their own souls and property, they kept moving on to the frontiers as opportunities and land presented themselves, and this is the reason behind the move of their daughter, Frances Love Ferguson (649), into the "old Buncombe County Area."
