Interestingly, I found this same photo on Wikipedia attached to a biography of General Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard.

That is very interesting. There has been discussion in my family as to if this was Buck or his brother Beau.

Well, actually, it is the general, the Confederate general who fired on Fort Sumter at the beginning for the Civil War.  

“Beauregard was born at the "Contreras" sugar-cane plantation in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, about 20 miles (32 km) outside New Orleans, to a French Creolefamily. Beauregard was the third child of Hélène Judith de Reggio, of mixed Frenchand Italian ancestry and descendant of Francesco M. de Reggio, member of an Italian noble family whose family had migrated first to France and then to Louisiana, and her husband, Jacques Toutant-Beauregard, of French and Welshancestry.”

Found at  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/P._G._T._Beauregard

So, unfortunately, this is not a pic of a Lovelace. BTW: my wife’s tree has Lovelaces from Halifax County, Virginia.
