My grandfather, John Wesley Lovern was born in Floyd Co. VA on Oct 10, 1854. His father was William A. Lovern born June 1826. He was married to Mary Jane Winfree in 1851. Mary Jane was born in June 1829 in Floyd Co. I have one source that says William A Lovern's father was Patrick Lovern but have not confirmed this. My facts on the Lovern family are limited. I would appreciate any assistance.
