Rosamond (__?__) WILKES
Nancy (__?__) McCARTNEY
Husband:  Thomas LOVING
Birth:  1746, Pittsylvania Co., VA, or Powhatan Co., VA
Death:  13 Feb 1827, Ashville, St. Clair Co., AL
Father:  Gabriel LOVING (1725-1790)

Wife-1:  Mary "Polly" STROOP
Birth:  1757, Pittsylvania Co., VA
Death:  1790, St. Clair Co., AL

It's extremely unlikely that Polly died in Alabama, and I wonder if even Thomas did.

Wife-2:  Rosamond __?__
Other Spouse:  m1. Mr. WILKES
Marriage-3:  12 May 1818
Wife-3:  Nancy __?__
Birth:  bef. 1775

These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Elijah? (b. 1793)
1 male 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Thomas (b. 1746)
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Nancy
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
The only other Thomas LOVING indexed in 1820 was the one in Caroline Co., VA.  Listed one line below Richard LOVING.
