Major William Carter Love (one of those killed by the Harpes) was my 5th great-grandfather. His wife, Esther Calhoun Love, is buried in Piney Fork Cemetery, Crittenden County, KY, and her headstone reads "My husband Wm Love was killed by the Harps Aug 1799." (Photos of original and reproduced headstone are on Findagrave.)
