Happy Birthday John Loverin

John Loverin (1762-1843)

It has been written that the most interesting parts of a person’s life were the parts that fell in the “-” between their dates on a tombstone. John Loverin, like a lot of our ancestors, didn’t leave us a lot of clues to what went on in his life. There is likely much, much, much more to know than what is documented below. Maybe someday more of the story will reveal itself, but for now, we celebrate him by reviewing what we do know about his life.
