(Love Family Cemetery)William and Nancy Kirk Love and their children were the earliest settlers near King's Fort, establishing themselves there in January 1845. Their son, Robert H. Love, is believed to have been the first person interred on this site upon his death in March 1849. When the Loves sold the land around this site in 1849 they set aside a quarter acre as a graveyard. Nancy Loved died in 1850, William Love in 1851; both are thought to be interred here in unmarked graves. Also buried here are other early Kaufman County settlers and T. J. Johnson, who is believed to have been the son of an African American couple for the Love family.
