I am trying to find anyone out there that may have more pictures, history, information on my 2nd great grandmother Mahala Melvina Love. BIRTH 6 JUL 1855 • Perry, Pike, Illinois, United States. DEATH 6 JUN 1940 • Green River, Emery, Utah, United States. It’s told that she was given to her father Charles Love, unsure of her birth mother (none listed on death certificate); though she was raised by Charles wife Anne Eliza Miranda James. Her picture which can be found on Ancestry.com has been shown and confirmed of her look being Cherokee..but we are unable to find any proof of documentation to confirm, this is my goal.
