Note from Submitter:

I am a descendant of John and Sarah Drake Lovelace / Loveless / Loveliss / Lovelass found in the 1840 1850 1860 1870 1880 Sullivan County NY census.

John was born 1804 and Sarah / Sally 1805 in NY. I have their son George's bible listed below. Sarah is the daughter of Zephaniah and Rebecca Shons Drake, son of Zephaniah and Anna Knapp Drake.

I have no idea who John's parents were. In 1850 he was a sawyer in Forestburgh, Sullivan Co NY. Their children were Alfred Burns, Emily Jane (md DeKay), George married 1st Mary Newton 2nd (my line) Elizabeth Riker, Hannah (md Hull), Ira (died?) Sarah (md Lybolt) John and Charles (died?) Mary. Rebecca (married Steinard) Harriett married Barton Henry had already moved out and is in the household of George Darling @ 19 he was a lumberman in Bethel Sullivan Co NY There is also a tie somehow to the Hartwell family.

After 1860 George moved to Newark NJ has benn laborer, lumberman lumber dealer and carpenter.

In 1820 there are David A Loveless in Bethel Sullivan Co NY and Thomas in Lumberland, Sullivan Co Ny.

In 1840 there are John in Lumberland and David A in Cochecton.

Below is a transcript of entries from George B Lovelace's bible, son of John and Sally. George B. Lovelace Bible currently in the possession of Doris Mayer Reece, great-great-granddaughter.
