    Notes 
    • Of Fayette County, Georgia (Casagranda)

      Came to Texas before 1860, settling in Sabine County. His mother Lydia Loving also came with them. They sought refuge in Fort Jessup during the Run-away-scrape. Manuel Loving received a land grant in Sabine County on the Sabine River in the Isla community, and his descendants still live there; although the waters of the Toledo Reservoir have covered most of the land grant. There is a letter written by him in the Blake collection on Aug. 22, 1849, from Fannin County, Texas, to Mr. A.H. Weir, Esq. in Milam. The letter states that he is accompanied by Capt. Titus and 125 Old Indian Fighters, and they are searching for minerals above the Red and Washita rivers. He mentions his son, William, and states that he hopes to be home by November. He also joined the gold rush in California. (White and Toole, p 35).


      Leatha Betts shared the following article, found by Suzanna Els Edwards. Both are descendants of Manuel Walton Loving, (the old man).

      Fatal Affray in Sabine County. On Monday last, as a Mr. Lovin was returning from Milam to his residence in Sabine Conty, in company with his son William and nephew, (note:probably Adam Ard)...he fell in with a youth named Hoffman, at or near the Patroon bridge.  Loving soon commenced abusing Hoffman by calling him, among other names, a theif.  Young Hoffman (?John?) remarked to the old man that his being drunk alone saved him from a whipping, and turned to speak to William Lovin when the old man drew a pistol on him and fired, the ball penetrating his body.  Hoffman staggered back, with his rifle in his hand, when he received two other shots, one in the neck--supposed to have been fired by the young Lovins.  He then raised his rifle, and fired at old Lovin, (who was running) shooting him through the body and killing him instantly.  The report of the several guns having alarmed Hoffman's family who resided near the spot--several persons came to his relief and the fight ended.  At last accounts Hoffman was still alive. The two Lovin's have been  arrested. -- San Augustine Herald
