James Robert Love was born on August 19, 1831 in Jackson County, North Carolina. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Emory and Henry College and took up the study of law with Col Nick Woodford at Asheville, North Carolina.

Love is listed as being a 27-year-old living in Jackson County, North Carolina when he was commissioned 3rd lieutenant of Company A, 16th North Carolina Infantry on April 27, 1861. He was promoted to 2nd lieutenant on April 25, 1862 and wounded to an undetermined degree at Seven Pines on May 31, 1862. He was made captain on the following June 30.

In October 1862 Company A was transferred to Thomas’ North Carolina Legion where Love was appointed lieutenant-colonel.

Records regarding Love’s time with Thomas’ Legion are a bit confusing. One notation shows him captured May 6, 1864 but there are several letters dated after that time in which his commanding officer praises him and his command for their service. No discharge information is given in his records.

After the war, Love moved to Tennessee where on November 11, 1868, at Reagan Station, Tennessee, he married Miss Julia Reagan. The couple would have eight children.

Love was elected to the state senate in 1884, and served one term, until continued ill health compelled him to give up political activity. He was prominent as a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South.

James R. Love died on November 10, 1885 in Monroe County, Tennessee and is buried there in West View Cemetery.

The full standing view above shows Love later in life; the group shot includes Love seated at right.  [ad][ph:L]
