Biography

"Julia Loving was born in Virginia as a slave and was still quite young when freed. She made her way to St. Paul, Minnesota where she became acquainted with the Flandrau family. When Patty Flandrau married Tilden Selmes in 1883 they hired Julia to work for them on their ranch near Mandan in the Dakota Territory. In 1886 Patty gave birth to Isabella and Julia then took the infant under her care. She continued in this capacity until Isabella married Robert Ferguson nineteen years later. After caring for Isabella’s two eldest children, Martha and Bobby, Julia retired to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. After her death, her body was flown to Kentucky for her burial. " --Cathy Callopy
