Hi Again;
I note that some of you say he died: Thomas County FL and some of you say Thomas County GA... can you tell me for sure which it is? Sorry to be a pest... I have a James Lovett in Florida that doesn't know which line he comes from that is interested in testing and I don't want to send him on a wild goose chase...

We don't know where he was born.

20, 1827, Effingham County, Georgia; Property: 200 acres on Indigo

I am a descendent of James Lovett (Aaron's brother) and Catherine
Zitterauer and I have letters from the Bureau of Indian Affairs and
other government agencies stating that James Lovett was a "friendly"
Creek Indian and therefore, his descendents were entitled to settlement
funds for their help in fighting with the US Gov't in various
territorial skirmishes. The confusing thing about this is, if he is an
Indian, then what about David? One possible conclusion is that he was
deemed "Creek Indian" because of his mother. No one seems to know. My
mother's sister, Carolyn Lovett Ahlstrom, actually received money (not
much) back in the 70's.

Hope this helps. I would love to solve this mystery!
