"Wells R. Loveland writes from Windsor, Broome Co., N.Y., 1885: -"The above comprises my father's and my own families. There have been no deaths except father's. Father was a laborer. I am a stone mason. My sister Aurelia remains unmarried, and is a teacher in the academy in this place. She lives here with our mother. My oldest daughter is a school teacher. My oldest son is learning the whip finishing business at the Coburn Whip Works in this place. I served three years and four months in the First New York Mounted Rifles during the Rebellion. Enlisted Aug 18, 1862, served two years and then re-enlisted in the same regiment. I was discharged Nov. 29, 1865. I was under fire twenty-seven different times and escaped unhurt. I was never in a hospital. Our family belong to the M.E. Church."

(From a letter to Bertha Leona Cramer from her mother Adelaide Minnette Cramer:

".....My Mother, Eliza Maria Adams was born Feb. 6, 1845, the oldest of 6 children. She was a school teacher, married Sept. 29, 1864 while father was home on a furlough. I guess Father inherited some of his mother's disposition for I grew up not knowing any of Mother's people. My people moved about 100 miles south of Oneida where Grandmother Adams lived, when I was about 3 mo. old. I went to visit them with mother when I was 4 and again when I was 12. I had spent the winter with Grandma Loveland so Aunt Aurelia could go away to teach. I remember I loved her and the aunts and uncles. Now I will go back and pick up the life Father and Mother lived. Before Father was 19 he enlisted in the "First New York Mounted Rifles." He served the gov't till he was mustered out in 1865 when the war closed. He then joined the Freedmans's Aid Bureau and went south to help the Gov't get the South in production of food. Remember, he would not have been 23 years old till the next Oct. 14, but on him rested the responsibility to see that the plantations were not allowed not to be cultivated. Some planters said "I'll never pay a Niger." He tried reason and when that failed took possession of the plantation, rounded up the "darkies", appointed a forman and went on. Maybe the darkies said "I'se free, I dun gwine to work any more," and he had the authority to hire and compel them to work or punish them. He had a certain territory he was responsible for. The harvest, and made trips every so often till the food was harvested and there was no more famine in the South. He was in the Govt. service 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days. Father was no hand to tell army yarns that boasted of his prowess. Most of his yarns had to deal with foraging. He was always in the enemy country and where the people would not sell, the "Yanks' took what they could..."

Wells Rich LOVELAND was the son of Alexander Daniel LOVELAND and Wealthy Anne Charolette WRIGHT.
