Anyone have information of LOVVORN in Clay County, Alabama?

My gg grandmother was Martha Causey. After searching for about half of my 58 years, I've found precious little information about her and still have no record of her parents.
From Clay County, Alabama census records of 1870, she was age 35, born in Georgia and living with her recently married daughter and son-in-law. The son-in-law was my great grandfather, Jeremiah P. Sims. His wife was Mary Jane Causey, the daughter of Martha Causey.
Clay County, Alabama Mariage Book "B" 1877-1882 Pg. 438 shows the following:
Grooms name: James P. Lovvorn
Brides name: Martha Causey
Mariage date: 15 Nov. 1880
Official's name and Title: Jere Stephens, MG

As of the June 1880 census for Clay County, AL. Martha was still in residence with her daughter and son-in-law.

By the June 1900 census for Franklin County, Alabama, Martha Lovvorn, was in residence with her widowed daughter Mary Sims.

I've been informed there are lovvorns buried in the unmarked graves in the old Mt. Olive Baptist Church Cemetery near Delta, Clay County, Alabama. That old cemetery is located on land that once belonged to my gg grandfather, Clayborn Sims and his wife Susannah Waldrop.

I know this is a long shot, but thought to try anyway.
