Charles Cannon Love
Son of Thomas Love, Sr.

Born 20 Jun 1807, Charles Cannon Love is the son of Thomas and Susannah Polk Love. He is named for Susannah’s father Charles Polk and Thomas Love’s brother named Charles. Living in what eventually became Union County NC, Charles raised a family with consort Barbara Long. Barbara was born 5 Aug 1807, the daughter of Adam and Lydia Walters Long.

Dated 24 Apr 1848, Thomas E. Hagler sold C. C. Love nine slaves (2-49, Union NC) named Pleasant, Peter, Rachel, Lucenda, Spencer, Enoch, Westley, and Lena. Then in the possession of Thomas, Polly and James Hagler, the ages of the slaves are defined as “three years up to twenty-six.” Thomas, Polly and James are the children of John and Mary Love Hagler. Mary Hagler is Charles Love’s aunt. In the same year, a court record in Cabarrus County indicates the slaves once belonged to Charles’s grandfather James Love. For some reason post dating the deed of sale in Union County, George Tucker divided the slaves among the children of Mary Love Hagler. The record follows:
