You might want to avail yourself of Richard D. Squires' Stern fathers 'neath the mould: The Lovecraft Family in Rochester. Here's an excerpt from the Lovecraft family tree to explain how all these folks were related:

Joseph S. Lovecraft (d. 1850, Rochester, NY)
   John Full Lovecraft (d. 1877, Rochester, NY)
      Sidney Joseph Lovecraft (d. 1890)
   William Lovecraft (d. 1882, Rochester, NY)
   Joseph Lovecraft, Jr. (d. 1879, Rochester, NY)
      Joshua Elliott Lovecraft (d. 1898)
   George Lovecraft (d. 1895, Mt. Vernon, NY)
      Winfield Scott Lovecraft (d. 1898, Providence, RI)
   Aaron Lovecraft (d. 1870, Rochester, NY)

Hope that helps to sort them all out.

I wonder how many Lovecrafts are in Rochester now. Any clue if there were other "hotbeds" of Lovecrafts about 100 years ago?
