Notes

  • Lovin family tradition holds that the Lovins are English and Irish.This information comes to us through Tom Sims, whose aunt transmittedit to him from her memory of hearing Baily Edward Lovin say this.

    "B.E. (Bailey Edward) said he was English and Irish.  He wasredheaded.  Walter (B.E.'s son) and two of his sisters (B.E.'sdaughters) were redheads.  B.E. did the land run and picked a spot inNorman OK, sold it, and moved to Ada where he married a preacher'sdaughter.  He was also Mayor.  Died in Allen OK.  This informationprovided by the aunt of Tom Sims (great-grandson of B.E.).  We are notsure which aunt."

    Bailey Edward Lovin is listed as Eddie Lovin in the 1880 census withhis family in Hunt County, Texas.  Bailey and his younger brotherJames Henry were born in Mississippi before his father moved thefamily to Texas.  We can see from the census that their sister Ada wasborn in Texas in about 1874.  Henry was born about 1870, so they movedto Texas between 1870 and 1874.

    By 1920, the family has moved from Hughes to Pontotoc County, and areliving in Allen.

    1920 Federal Census, Pontotoc County, Oklahoma, 5 January, Allen CityWard 3, District 166, page 6A, Hse #120, Fam #143
    Lovin, B E Head M W 53  MS MS MS Salesman, Dry Goods Store

    Lovin, Isabelle Dau F W 11 OK MS KY [b abt 1909]
    Lovin, Ladelle Dau F W 7 OK MS KY [b abt 1913]

    All the details of "Lizza" match Elizabeth in the previous census,including her birth state being Illinois.  Yet the mother of all thechildren is reported as born in Kentucky as Elizabeth's mother.  Thisis surely an enumerator error.  He likely did not write down the birthplace of the children's mother at the time, and went back andabsent-mindedly copied the birth place of the mother from the previousline.  But then it happens again with the report for Walter's motherin the next household.

    Bailey J of 1910 is now listed as Jack.  This tells us his middleinitial J was perhaps John, or Jack, which had become a name in itsown right, and not just the common nickname for the formal name John.In 2014, I found a family genealogy that reported his middle name asJackson, which would also lead to a nickname of Jack.  The middle nameis not documented in any record I have found, and but neither is it inthe genealogy.  But i discovered that Elizabeth's mother's name wasJackson.  So Jackson as a middle name makes sense.

    The child that appeared to be called Henery M in 1910 is now calledMart.  The names in the 1910 census were faded in streaks, so hard toread.  If the name was really entered as Henery, since the name hadthe initial M, this child's full name is likely Henry Martin, calledMart here.

    The child matching "Lady" of 1910 is called Isabelle here.  That makessense but is interesting, in light of the name of the last child, age7, Ladelle, for which "Lady" could be a nickname.

    Son Walter is living next door, but the enumerator has written hisname as Watler.  Walter's mother is reported as born in Kentuckyinstead of Illinois.

    By 1930, Bailey Edward has moved from dry goods to groceries in thesame town, and his wife Elizabeth also works in the store.  Gladys isa teacher in the public schools.

    The birthplace of the children's mother is now back to Illinois.  Weget some middle initials in this census, and perhaps the correct formof "Ladelle's" name, Lola Dell.  The three sons are living in theirown households near each other not far away, enumerated 2 pagesearlier.
