ARCHIBALD LOVE, County Commissioner of Clay County, was born in Scotland January 15, 1826, and is the eldest of seven children of John and Agnes Love, both of Scotch extraction. The father was a miner, and Archibald was reared as one, and has followed that occupation to within the last seven years. In 1845, he was married to Jeannette Hamilton, who was a Highland Scotch lassie. To them were born six children, four of whom are living, viz., John, Charles, Agnes and Jesse. Mr. Love emigrated to the United States in 1839, and located not far from Pittsburgh, Penn., following mining for about three years; then he was a contractor on the tunnels of the Pennsylvania Central Railroad; also superintended a tunnel on the Steubenville & Indiana Railroad. In 1854, he removed to Cloverland, Vigo County, remaining there one year, when ho purchased some land in Jackson Township, Clay County; remained on it seven years, still following mining, however. He opened a mine on his farm, where he lost, during the years 1873 and 1874, between $3,000 and $4,000. Never yielding to reverses, however, he, in 1861, moved to Brazil, where only one mine had yet been opened in the vicinity, and was employed as a miner for one man nine years. In the meantime, he purchased an interest in a mine, but disposed of it about the year 1869, but still continued the management of mines for some time, when, in 1873, he retired from the business entirely, and occupied his time in looking after his various investments in town property and land, owning two small farms and a number of pieces of property in Brazil, which, through industry and strict economy, he had accumulated. His wife dying March 28, 1876, he married for his second wife Mrs. Calasty Ward. This event occurred January 1, 1877. Mrs. Love, his present wife, has borne her husband three children, viz., Mary, Anna and Martha. In 1880, Mr. Love became the candidate of the Republican party for County Commissioner, and was elected. He has always been a stanch Republican in politics. He has been a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church since he was twenty years of age; is also a member of the Universal Brotherhood. He is an upright citizen, a good neighbor and a worthy official.
