His wife died Feb. 16, 1872, leaving him the care of a large family.

His second companion and four of his childen having preceded him, he leaves to mourn his death, four brothers, one sister, eleven children, six of whom were present at the funeral. Mr. LOVELESS also leaves a large number of relatives and many friends who learned to love him in his earthly pilgrimage. At the age of fifteen years he was converted to Christ, but did not unite with the church. He wandered away from his Lord, and lived outside the fold for many years, but we are happy to state that about a month before his death, he made his peace with God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and died happily in that faith. Funeral services were held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. John MOERY, Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. K. G. Sandmeyer, pastor of the Methodist church. Internment was in the Bement cemetery.
