LOVELESS, TEXAS. Loveless was eleven miles southeast of Eden in southeastern Concho County. It was named for the A. C. Loveless family, which came to Concho County in 1901 and had a ranch in the vicinity. In 1936 the settlement had a school, a cemetery, and a few scattered buildings. In 1940 the school, which encompassed grades one through seven, had one teacher and an average daily attendance of seven students. By 1955 the school had been consolidated with the Eden school district. By 1963 only the cemetery remained in Loveless.
