George W. Love1

ID#3007, b. January 1870, d. 1929
Father: John Love
Mother: Mary Jane Aston

Birth date: January 1870.1
As George's gravestone shows his year of birth as 1869, I first though that he might have been born in December as he would still have been five months old at the time of the 1870 federal census on 01 June 1870. However, that census shows the month of birth if it was within the year ... and George's reported month is Jan. As the census event occurred much closer to George's birth than his death and burial, it is logical to assume that any error regarding his birth is more probable as time passed. For that reason, I have chosen January 1870 to be the correct date until I find evidence otherwise.2
Birth place: Marshall County, West Virginia.3,1

George married Dessie R. Hukill on 4 July 1889 at Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. The ceremony was performed by Wm H. Cooke, a minister of the Presbyterian Church.4 The couple had obtained a marriage license on 2 July 1889 in Brooke County, West Virginia.3

George died in 1929.2 Interred in the Park Cemetery, Garrettsville, Portage County, Ohio, his name appears on the gravestone as "George W. Love". Plot: Sec I, row 04. A single gravestone was used for George, his wife, Dessie H., and his parents, John and Mary J.2
