On Mar 21, 1778 husband William and his brother, Gabriel, entered tracts of land that were on opposite sides of the Yadkin River in Wilkes Co. NC. The surveys done in October of that year indicated that they had been there for some time, having made improvements on the land. Each brother served as chain carrier for the other when the surveys were made.
The Holloways and Lovings were neighbors near Mulberry Creek in the Globe valley of Burke County by 1787. Present day map shows Collettsville, Mulberry Creek and John's River. Holloway Mountain is further east on Route 90.
Daughter Mary married George Holloway in Oct 1787 in Burke Co. NC.
In the 1790 Burke Co. NC Census, William Loving is listed as a head of household of 6 members:
William,
1 male aged 0-16 (son William Jr. (b. after 1774),
4 females (wife Jane, 3 young daughters),
Daughter Mary would have been counted under husband George Holloway with 5 members. In the 1800 Census, both adults in the William Loving household are at least 45 years old. Also counted was a female under age 10.
The Loving family were not only patriots but also religious. When George Holloway was converted to the local Methodist movement by Rev. Jesse Lee in 1795, he founded a Methodist group that produced a manuscript titled Class Papers for Holloway's Society", 1810-1821. Loving family members were some of the original members of the society and lived near George and the present Mt. Olivet Methodist Church in Collettsville NC which is said to have been known as Holloway's Chapel.
In 1781, daughter Elizabeth married John Wesley Fox, 1764-1840, who had fought and was wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain in Oct 1780, at the age of 16.
Son John married Lora Estes daughter of Reuben Estes. John's will was probated Dec 7, 1818. It named wife "Lory", sons Taylor, Reuben, William, Lot, and John, and daughter Delphy, Lettie, Lory, Mary Alloway, Delilah Wakefield, and Elizabeth Tucker.
About 1821, son William married Elizabeth Fair, and had a daughter Matilda in Jun 1821. William was a member of the Holloway Society from 1817-1822, and was bondsman for Mahala Holloway's marriage to Joseph Fair (Pharr) in 1821.
In the 1800 Burke Co. NC Census, page 766 line 14, "William Loving" is listed as a head of household of 3 members:
1 male aged over 45 (William Sr.),
1 female under age 10,
1 female aged over 45 (wife Jane).
There are three households headed by Gabriel [page 767 line 30], John [page 767 line 17], and William (Jr.) Loving [page 768 line 3], respectively. Gabriel and John are in an older age class than brother William.
In the 1800 US Census for Burke Co. NC son William Loving (Jr.) is listed as a head of household of 6 members:
William (born 1775?),
1 male aged 0-16 (son, probably the William Loving b. 1797 who married Nancy Crisp),
2 females under 10,
1 female 16-25,
and one female 26-44, probably his wife.
Son Gabriel is in the 1800 Burke Co. Census with both adults 26-45 and 5 female children (3 under 10, a 10-15 year old, and a 15-26 year old). By 1820, the family may have settled in Rapides Parish in Louisiana Territory where John and James Holloway were raising cattle in Holloway Prairie. In the 1820 Rapides Parish Census, page 133, there is a Gabriel Loving with 1 female child aged 10-16 and both adults at least age 45. The family is not in Burke Co 1820 Census. There are no Lovings in the 1810 or 1830 Rapides Parish census or in the 1792 Natchez District Census.
Rapides Parish was formed in 1807 by the Territory of Orleans government. (see present day map for location).
Son William was a member of the Holloway Society from 1817-1822, and was bondsman for Mahala Holloway's marriage to Joseph Fair (Pharr) in 1821. By 1821, son William (Jr.) married Elizabeth Fair, and had a daughter Matilda in Jun 1821.
Son William appeared in the 1819 list of taxables for "the White district of Burke Co. NC, including the upper John's River, Mulberry and Globe sections" owing $600 for 180 acres and "one white poll". No other Lovings are listed, Nor any Whites. Only landowners under age 50 were taxable. His brother-in-law George Holloway was the "tax-lister" that year but over age 50 so not taxable. William (Jr.) was born about 1775 so he was not yet 50. [Scott, W. W., Annals of Caldwell Co., p. 115].
In 1839, son William (Jr.) sold 250 acres, including the 180 acres taxed in 1819, to Grief Lindsay.
