Parentage of Daniel Love
Daniel Love is a possible/probable child of Ephraim Love of Muddy Creek. Some sources have placed Daniel as a son of a John Love, but records are lacking to prove this. Daniel Love is listed in many records with Ephraim Love and although records to prove Daniel as his son (no will for Ephraim has been located), they are undoubtedly related in some way. According to "Settlers by the Long Grey Trail" author, John Houston Harrison (pg. 264): Daniel Love (who signed Margaret Johnson's bond as administrix of her husband, Arthur Johnson, deceased) was probably the son of Ephraim Love.
