Lovey and William married against their parents wishes. They fled on foot and went to Union Co SC. [280]

William was a carpenter, merchant, millwright.

1800 census location unknown. Not found in SC or NC. In Richmond Co NC, there is a Gideon, John, and Rhuben Almon, and a Kinchen Almonds.

William and Lovey moved to Union Co SC sometime in the early 1800's.

According to a family story, sometime between 1820 and 1830 William left with the children and went to Elbert Co GA. Lovey was unhappy with this move and walked to GA and got her children. She took the children while William was building a mill not far from the home. On the way back to Union, her son Alfred became ill. He died and was buried along side the road near Greenville, SC. William was never heard from again. It is about 140 miles from Union Co SC to Elbert Co GA. So there is some doubt about her walking the distance.

Lovey was supposedly buried on the plantation of son William Ursa Alman. Exact location is unknown.

Feb 2010. Found the Union Co (SC) Heritage Book, 1991, with a longstory on this family by Mannie Lee Edwards Mabry. I don't have this lady in my records so I don't know her connection with this family.According to the book, she was born in 1912 so I am making no attempt to contact her.

BOOK Comments:

Marriage - Rockingham, VA. Lovey lived in Rockingham, Richmond Co,NC. Records indicate that Lovey married William Alman in Cabarrus Co NC on Apr 14, 1800.

the heritage book lists her husband as Joseph and Joe, the marriage record as William. Perhaps his name was Joseph William.
