Establishing connection to Lovin(g) family tree
My connection to the Lovin(g) family is through my Grandmother, Beulah Brooks. Her mother was Kate Lovin(g). Kate's father was Joel Lovin(g). Joel's father was William B. Loving.
Thus establishing my connection to the Lovin(g) family.
I would like for someone out there tell me why some Loving family memebers dropped the "G" at the end of their surname.
The research I have done over the past five years has yeilded very little past William B. Loving. I have a nearly straight branch. It would be wonderful to find the siblings of the names mentioned and include them into my lineage.
Any help is appreciated.
