After looking at your Pate-64, I would assume that my Jeremiah (if correct) is a brother to your Anthony Pate, and my Matthew is his nephew? However my listing prior to Benjamin Washington was graciously shared with me by a recently discovered Pate family member, and I wondered if it could be confirmed with other pate trees, e.g. Perhaps one from Matthew Pate, son of Jeremiah.

In my search for the parents of Alexander Campbell (my ggg-grandfather who married Sally Pate), I reached a point where I made my best guess. I concluded that one of two men named Daniel Campbell and his wife (probably Margaret) who were listed on page 104 and 125 of the 1820 Richmond County, North Carolina census were probably the parents. If I am correct, Daniel Campbell would be my gggg-great grandfather. I do not have any clues that would allow me to pursue an earlier generation of Campbells. If we are ever able to link to a previous generation of Campbells, it will probably be by DNA testing. A complete description of this research is documented in "The Parents of Alexander Campbell".

Of course, Sally Pate (my ggg-grandmother) contributed just as much as Alexander Campbell in starting our line of the Campbell family. My research has turned up some clues that allow us to identify several previous generations of Campbell ancestors through the maternal Pate side of the family. Clues from the 17th and 18th centuries can be sketchy because there were no census records until 1790 and few other records survived. In researching the Pates, we have a very unique name to trace - Thoroughgood Pate. The Pates were very fond of using the name Thoroughgood and they passed the name through the family tree for at least two hundred years from the mid-1600's to well into the 1800's. I have spent some time researching the name Thoroughgood Pate and I will document my research here and try to differentiate between the several men with that same name. I also found that a Charles Pate (my 6th great grandfather) was sandwiched between two Thoroughgood's (my 5th and 7th great grandfathers). There was a temptation to stretch the family tree to my 8th great grandfather, but I found too many differing opinions about who that ancestor was so I stopped at 7th great grandfather Thoroughgood Pate.

I cannot document my sources on Thoroughgood Pate as well as I would like because most of the information is taken directly from the work of other Pate researchers, and they did not always document their sources. I will try to at least include links to website postings and other known references used in compiling this information.

Before getting to Sally Pate's grandfather Thoroughgood and beyond, I will include what I know about her father and my gggg-grandfather, Stephen Pate.

Stephen Pate (b. 1760 - 70 ; d. 1839) - father of Sally Pate - my gggg-grandfather

The Carroll County Rootsweb website, in quoting Goodspeed's History of Tennessee, states that Stephen Pate was one of the early settlers of Carroll County Tennessee.1 I will show that the early settler was Stephen Pate, Sally's brother, and that her father arrived in the McKenzie area several years later.

Sally Pate's father, Stephen Pate (my gggg-grandfather, b. 1760 - 70 ; d. 1839) was probably born in Richmond County, North Carolina between the present-day towns of Gibson and Laurinburg.
His father Thoroughgood Pate acquired the land in 1769. Two Pate cemeteries are still maintained on part of that original property today.

Stephen Pate (b. 1760 - 70 ; d. 1839) married Honor Sweeney (Swinea) in the 1780's. They had ten known children:

Elizabeth Pate (c. 1780-1790)
Elijah Pate (c. 1791)
Elisha S. Pate (c. 1803)
Sally Pate (b. 1800-1804)
Hannah Pate (c. 1805)
Stephen Sweeney Pate (c. 1808)
Richmond Love Pate (c. 1814)
Samuel Duncan Pate (c. 1815)
John Pate (b. ??)
Daniel Pate (b. ??)

Stephen Pate appears on the 1779 Richmond County Tax List with 400 acres. This fact raises the possibility that he was born closer to 1760 than 1770 since it is unlikely that a 9-year old would have been a land-owner. Or was the 1779 taxpayer a brother of Thoroughgood's named Stephen?

Stephen Pate's move to Weakley or Carroll County Tennessee has been a point of confusion among family researchers because two men named Stephen Pate made the move - father and son. If we look at the records closely, we can determine that the son, Stephen Sweeney (Swinea) Pate (c. 1800 - 1887) was the first to arrive in Weakley County. One source is quoted below.

Stephen S. Pate settled in Weakley County probably around 1820-1825. He was born in the year of 1799 and died at the age off 88 in the year 1887.2

In 1830, we find a census record for a Stephen Pate in Weakley County (b. 1800-1810), as well as another Stephen Pate in Richmond County North Carolina (b. 1760-1770). 1760 seems closer to the actual birth year than 1770 for the father. The census records indicate that the younger Stephen Pate came to Tennessee first.

Sally Pate's father, Stephen Pate, had the following census record in 1830 Richmond County North Carolina.

Pate, Stephen - 113100001-00001001

1 male under 5 - born 1825-1830 (could be Alexander Sandy Campbell)
1 male 5-10 - born 1820-1825 (could be Philip Campbell)
3 males 10-15 - born 1815-1820 (Samuel, John, Daniel?)
1 male 15-20 - born 1810-1815 (Richmond Love Pate)
1 male 60-70 born 1760-1770 (Stephen Pate, Sr.)
1 female 20-30 born 1800-1810 (could be Sally Pate Campbell)
1 female 50-60 - born 1770-1780 (Honor Pate)

Was Sally living with Stephen Pate, Sr. in 1830? Sally Pate was born 1800-1804. Stephen Pate had no other known daughters in the 1800-1810 birth range. Two boys in the household are of the right age to be her sons Philip and Alexander (Sandy). Her other children, Daniel and Margaret had not yet been born. No one in Stephen Pate Sr.'s household in 1830 matches a possible age for Alex. Campbell. The census record suggests that Sally was living with her father in 1830, but that her husband, Alexander Campbell was not. The absence of an appropriate census record for Alexander Campbell in 1830 supports this theory.

So, we know that it was after 1830, when Sally's father, Stephen Pate moved to Tennessee.

One book on Richmond County North Carolina history mentions the migration of Richmond County settlers to Tennessee.

Within a few years a huge branch of Richmond County Coles, Covingtons, and Crawfords moved together to Tennessee and settled the frontier.... The rest of John and Jane Bounds Cole's family settled in Carroll, Tennessee. James Cole and his wife, Hannah Sweeney[sister of Honor Sweeney Pate, wife of the senior Stephen Pate], settled there in the 1820's, as did Israel Snead, son of John Snead and Nancy "Nannie" Cole. Israel Snead's wife, Elizabeth Randle, moved, too, along with her parents, Merritt Randle and Nancy Crawford Randle[parents of Rebecca Randle who married Stephen Sweeney Pate], and her five brothers and sisters. Joining them in Carroll County were Thomas Crawford, Jr. (son and namesake of the Revolutionary War colonel), and wife, Harriet Wall....

Twenty-four-year-old Richmond S. [Sweeney] Cole brought up the rear of the Tennessee settlers, moving in the winter of 1831-1832. At the age of ninety, Cole still considered the winter he moved to be "the coldest and hardest winter that I ever experienced before or since.3

I believe that Stephen Pate, Sr. , Alexander Campbell, Sally Pate Campbell, Samuel Duncan Pate, probably came to the McKenzie area during this same winter- 1831-1832. Daniel Campbell (son of Alexander and Sally Pate Campbell) was born in 1832 in TN per his 1860 and 1870 census records, so this helps confirm the date of the Campbell family move.

We can establish the date of Stephen Pate's death with an 1839 edition of the Huntingdon Republican newspaper, which advertised a land sale to settle the estate of Stephen Pate, Sr., with some proceeds going to "Alex. Campbell, in right of his deceased wife, Sally."

July 5, 1839-
IN pursuance of a decretal order, made at the May Term, 1839, of the Circuit Court for Carroll County, at Huntingdon, in the case of Stephen S. Pate and Richmond L. Pate, Administrators of the estate of Stephen Pate, dec'd, Plaintiffs vs. John Pate, Elijah Pate, Elisha Pate, Stephen S. Pate, Duncan Pate, and Richmond L. Pate, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, in right of his wife Elizabeth, Eli Ely, in right of his wife Hannah, and Samuel Pate, Nathaniel Pate, and Honor Gibson, children of Daniel Pate, dec'd, and Alex. Campbell, in right of his wife Sally, dec'd, the heirs at law of Stephen Pate, dec'd, Defendants, bearing date the 18th day of May, 1839, I shall proceed to sell, at public auction, to the highest bidder, at the late residence of Stephen Pate, dec'd, on Tuesday 20th day of August next, on a credit of twelve months, the following tracts of Land, to wit:
one tract of 155 acres, on which the said Stephen Pate, dec'd, resided when he died, and bounded as follows: beginning at the northwest corner of Grant No. 17868, Ethelred Williams ??? 731 acres, in the 12th Surveyor's district, on the waters of the South Fork of Obion River; thence east with the line of said Grant 116 1/2 Poles to a stake; thence south 213 1/2 poles to a stake, on the western line of said Grant; thence north 213 1/2 poles to the beginning.

Also one other tract of Land, containing 67 1/2 acres, in Carroll County, 12th Surveyor's district, Range 3d, Section 5th, on the waters of the South Fork of Obion River, it being a part of Entry no. 77, Granted to John C. McLemore, for 600 acres, by Grant No. 17333, and bounded as follows: beginning at a stake, the southwest corner of R. L. Pate's 50 acre tract, runs north 120 poles with said R. L.

The above land is hereby subject to the dower of Honor Pate, the widow of said Stephen Pate, dec'd, according to the way and manner that the commissioners, appointed by the Sherriff of Carroll County may lay the same off, agreeably to, and under the direction of, a Decretal Order from the Court, at the Term aforesaid of said Court, and heretofore to said Sherriff directed. The purchasers giving bond and good security for the purchase money.

JAMES H. GEE, Clerk and Master of the Circuit Court of Carroll County, Ten.
The Huntingdon Republican Newspaper4

The article stated that Stephen Pate resided on the 155 acre tract when he died in 1839. Some researchers have speculated that he may have been buried in the Old Salem Church Cemetery, which exists upon land that was donated by his son Stephen Pate in 1841. I think it is more likely that he was buried on his own land. If we could locate this land, we might find the site of Stephen Pate's grave. The 155-acre tract was bounded by a tract owned by Ethlered Williams in the 12th Surveyor's district of Carroll County, on the waters of the South Fork of Obion River. According to Barbara Elaine Clark in her Search For Myself, the 155 acre plot of Stephen Pate's was purchased by Richmond Love Pate either at auction or from the other heirs. I will see if I can locate that property one day.

Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1728-1802) - grandfather of Sally Pate - my ggggg-grandfather

Myrtle's Genealogy Page website describes the location and some other useful information about the Thoroughgood Pate property which later became site of the Pate Cemetery.

From Laurinburg, Scotland County, drive west on Hwy #79 5.9 miles to Dunc Pate Rd. Turn left. Drive about 100 yards to the edge of a field. Look to your right about 50 yards and near the edge of the woods you will see a small brick fenced cemetery.

This tract of land was granted by King George III to Samuel Snead [ancestor of Israel Snead who moved to Carroll County in the 1820's per author John Hutchinson] in 1767, conveyed by Snead to Rice Henderson in 1768. Henderson conveyed this land to Thoroughgood Pate I of English descent in 1769, and Pate to Thoroughgood Pate II in 1800.

Thoroughgood Pate II died in 1836. Sons of Thoroughgood Pate II: James Hamilton Pate died in 1902 and George Thoroughgood Pate died in 1922.5

The first tax list after Richmond County was established was in 1779. Thoroughgood Pate appears on the list with 700 acres.6

Thoroughgood Pate's early years in Richmond County North Carolina coincided with the American Revolution. We know from various sources that Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1728-1802) was a Colonel in the North Carolina militia.

We can assume that Thoroughgood Pate raised cattle on his property and provided beef to the army because Richmond County Court records recorded the following voucher in 1782.

State of NC
Richmond County
This is to certify that as commissioner for said county, I have purchased from Thoroughgood Pate six hundred weight of fresh beef at the prices ascertained by a resolve of Congress 25th of Feb. 1780 amounting in the whole to twenty-seven Spanish milled dollars. Given under my hand this 2nd day of Oct. 1782.
Charles Medlock, Comm.7

Mrs. Gibson's book also stated that "The court had appointed Charles Medlock, in 1780, to purchase provisions for the use of the army in the southern department." This information indicates that Thoroughgood Pate was supporting the cause of the colonists against the Tories.

Another historical record indicates that Thoroughgood Pate may have been sympathetic to the cause of the Tories during the war. Could Thoroughgood have actually been playing to both sides in the conflict?

In September, 1782, thirty-nine men stood trial for treason - presumably for their role as Tories during the Revolutionary War. Most took an oath of allegiance to the Continental Government, and were found not guilty in their jury trials.8

Among the thirty-nine was Thoroughgood Pate who was found not guilty after he took an oath of allegiance.

Pate researcher Joyce Gibson provided the following information.

The name Thoroughgood Pate was found in Virginia and Edenton, North Carolina, before 1750. A Thoroughgood Pate near Edenton had sons Thoroughgood, Charles, and William.9 Thoroughgood and Winifred, Charles and Sarah, William, and John Pate lived in Cumberland County between 1759 and 1767. Charles and Thoroughgood moved to Anson County. Thoroughgood Pate was the earliest known permanent settler on the Gibson side of Scotland. Rice and Rebecca Henderson, his contemporaries, lived in Scotland County, but emigrated. Pate and his wife, Winfred [Stewart], established a plantation near Joe's Creek around 1769. He was constable of his district in 1771.10

According to this information Thoroughgood Pate was married to a lady named Winifred. Other sources indicate that Winifred Stewart was the wife of Thoroughgood Pate (1728-1802), son of Charles Pate (C. 1696). Thoroughgood's children were identified as :

Thoroughgood Pate
Charles Pate
William Pate

Thoroughgood Pate (1728-1802) was married to Winifred Stewart. Some sources show a second wife named Frances Bright. Other sources name Frances Bright as a second wife to his son Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1782). I have been unable to confirm the Frances Bright connection with certainty. Perhaps Frances Bright was a wife of Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1694) who was the brother of 6th grat grandfather Charles Pate. This needs more research. Their children were:

Samuel Pate (c. 1765-1850 ; m. Martha Sweeney)
Thoroughgood Pate, Colonel (c. 1782-1836; m. Mary Jane McCollman)
Stephen Pate (b. 1760-70 ; d. 1839 ; m. Honor Sweeney)
Sabra Pate (c. 1775-1846 ; m. George Wright)
Willoughby Pate (??)

The existence of a store called "Pate and Wright" was well-documented in Richmond County records. It was co-owned by Thoroughgood's son and namesake, Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1782-1836) according to the record below. The son was apparently also a Colonel in the North Carolina Militia.

Thoroughgood Pate, the son of Thoroughgood Pate who settled near Gibson in 1769, served in the House of Commons in 1809. He had a store called "Pate & Wright", and was a justice of the peace and a colonel in the county militia. Michael Dockery contested his election in the House of Commons, but his petition was rejected for lack of evidence.11

Charles Pate (c. 1696- d. after 1769) - my gggggg-grandfather

Charles Pate (c. 1695 - d. after 1769) was the son of Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1635) and the father of Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1728).

One Pate researcher gives this information about Charles Pate.

In late 1717, Charles Pate, son of Thoroughgood, bought land on the Kesiah River (later called the Cashie) in what is now Bertie County. His brother William also is listed as owning land in the same area. In "Old Albemarle and Its Absentee Landlords," an entry lists Charles and William Pate among residents of an area west of the Chowan River between the "Cashey" River and Salmon Creek near what is now Windsor.

On July 8, 1718, Charles sold some land on the same river. On July 15, 1718, he received 100 acres on Reedy Branch in a deal with Nathan and Mary Moore. On March 9, 1722, he sold 126 acres he listed as having included land that he inherited from his father, Thoroughgood.

Some of Charles Pate's patent of land on Stoney Creek in 1740 was included in a transfer in the late 18thth century of land from James Pate to Daniel Pate. The cross index shows other transactions between James Pate and Charles Pate and between James Pate and James Pate Jr.12

Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1635-1713) - my ggggggg-grandfather

Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1635-1713, my 7th great grandfather) is our oldest known Pate ancestor. However, some researchers claim to have evidence that he was the son of Thomas Pate, the first of that family to immigrate to Virginia from England. I have pieced together an interesting story concerning this Thoroughgood Pate.

Thoroughgood Pate was probably the first Pate to venture into North Carolina from Virginia.
Another Rootweb posting provides this information.

Thoroughgood Pate ... lived in Northeastern North Carolina and died there in 1713. I know of only three sons of his based on my own records searches: Thoroughgood, Charles and William. [M]y researches have placed him in various parts of that state [Virginia] from at least 1658 ... until almost the end of the 17th century.

Thoroughgood Pate was in the Chowan Precinct at least as early as 1703. An entry in the North Carolina Historical and Genealogical Registry shows he sold land in the Green Hall area to Nicholas Blackmon. A record lists his wife's name as Mary. But in another record of the same year, Pate referred to "my now wife Sarah."

Records of the area indicate the Thoroughgood Pate living there became a planter of some substance. He owned more than one tract of land. He married Sarah Chevin, sister of Nathaniel Chevin, a man who held official posts in the area and who was one of the original developers of the town of Edenton. Chevin, in fact, became guardian of William Pate after Thoroughgood's death, stating in a court record that his sister was unable to raise the minor child. And Chevin included his "cousin" William Pate in his 1719 will. Though she doesn't list the source of her information, Julia Clare Pate ... puts William's age at 16 when his father died in 1713. Another account indicates William may have been born in 1698. His middle name may have been Thoroughgood too.

Thoroughgood Pate Jr. was born in 1694, according to one listing. Apparently the eldest, he seems to have created less recorded activity in the Chowan area after his father's death.

A June 26, 1792 will of Daniel Pate lists his wife, Mary, sons, Charles and Thomas, and daughter, Barcey.

Genealogist Billie Evans of Garland, N.C., herself a descendant of Thoroughgood Pate, provides the following lineage extending from Thoroughgood Pate of Chowan Precinct to Lewis Pate of Wayne County: Charles, son of Thoroughgood, and Sarah had three children: Charles Pate, Baptist preacher born May 1, 1729 in Bertie County and died sometime after 1772, perhaps in South Carolina; Thoroughgood Pate and William Pate. The younger Charles married Sarah Henderson and they had these children: Shadrack, Sarah, Charles, Mary, Rebecca, Ann and Joel all of whom were born before 1772. Shadrack Pate was born in Wayne County before 1765. 13

Another Rootweb posting supports some of the earlier information.

This information came from Preston Newman, who wrote an unpublished paper in 1994 on the Descendants of Levi Pate: Thouroughood Pate I, the earliest known progenitor of this Pate family in America, is found in early Colonial records to have lived in 1703 in the Chowan Precinct (formed in 1670, later to become a County), which Precinct was at that time a part of old Albermarle County, of the then North Carolina Colony, Chowan Precinct/County is on the north side of Albemarle Sound, and in 1703 extended northward to the Virginia Colony boundry. By 1722, much of these Chowan/Albemarle land areas became a part of Bertie County NC. The city of Edenton was then and is now the seat of government for Chowan County. Early Colonial records of North Carolina reveal that Thoroughgood Pate was granted land by patent from the British Crown in Chowan Precinct in 1704. He had sold land in Chown Precinct in 1703, on which Deed records his wife's name is given as Sarah, with no maiden name known. From Chowan Court records of January 1714, it is revealed that Thoroughood Pate is deceased, that his widow Sarah was "incapable" of educating their apparent minor child William Pate, and William was committed by the Court to be left in the care of his godfather and uncle, Nathaniel Chevin, Esquire, who was apparently an attorney or a justice of the Court, since his name occurs on many Chowan Deed and Court records of that era as a witness to these records, implying a frequent court presence. It is possible Nathaniel Chevin was the brother of Sarah Pate, but this has not been proven. From the available Chowan Court records, it is believed Thoroughood Pate was born circa 1660-1670. It is not known if he immigrated to American or wheter he was a second generation American, nor is it known who his parents were. These records reveal that he died circa 1713.

Here is another Rootweb posting about Thoroughgood Pate.

Thoroughgood Pate was confined to the jail in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1657 for debt. This is coincidentally the year Sir Richard Pate died in Gloucester County.

The York County Wills, Deeds and orders, Book III, page 22, abstracted by Lindsay O. Duvall, gives the estate of Giles Mode, made by William Barber, George Wale and Thomas Ballard ... to which Thoroughgood's descendants were related by marriage, 1 February 1657, ordered by the January court. This inventory showed that Thoroughgood Pate had two money debts to the Giles Mode estate.

On page 47of the same record there are two entries: "An attachment is granted the estate of Thoroughgood Pate to Thomas Ballard for security of 361 lbs of tob." This record also showed that Thoroughgood's problem was probably precipitated by a Doctor Haddon, who married the widow of Mr. Mode, thus acquiring Mode's estate, to include receivable assets.

The next record of Thoroughgood is in Vol. II of Charles City County Court Records, 1658-1661, page 141, abstracted by Beverly Fleet; "Mr. Thomas Ligon sued by Howell Pryse at last court for the escape of one Thurgood Pate, a prisoner in his custody, for 695 lb of tobo., of which he paid 345 lb., requests remission of balance of 350 lb. This is refused and he is ordered to pay by 10th Nov. next."15

Note that both "tob" and "tobo" were abbreviations for tobacco.

The information below is from a Genforum posting. It seems to support the debt problem of Thoroughgood Pate.

It is an old saying among Patetown Pates that "A Pate never let a young'un ruin him." When Thoroughgood Pate was a young man he got into debt to a widow woman in Norfolk, Virginia. When the widow remarried, the new husband of the woman sued Thoroughgood for the amount owed her. Thoroughgood could not pay, and was jailed for debt, and disowned by Thomas Pate, his father, who had not approved of Thorogood's dalliance with the woman.

Thomas is a name not given to Patetown Pates. Thomas Pate was a shipbuilding seafaring military man who had the ferry concession at Yorktown, Virginia, at the turn of the 18th century. The Pates were God-fearing people, and when Thorogood escaped from jail he was on his own, and went to Peyton (Patetown) kin in the Siouan Indian controlled Rappahannock Valley, on the western frontier of Virginia. There he became involved with the border-patrolling tax-collecting Chevin family.

The Patetown Pates migrated from the Rappahannock Valley to the Stoney Creek area of New Kent County, Virginia. From there Thorogood migrated to the Bertie area of North Carolina, because of his connection to the politically strong Chevin family there. The land in Bertie was "thin" and "worn out" by the Coree Indians, who had farmed it intensively for years. The civilized Tuscarora Indians, who had come to North Carolina from Pennsylvania to break the power of the Corees in the Carolinas coveted the Bertie land, however, because it was near the seat of English colonial power at Edenton.

To make a long story short, when the Tuscarora War [1714] was over, and Thorogood was dead, Charles and James Pate, sons of Thorogood, arranged a land swap with the Tuscaroras in the present Wayne County area. That was how Torhunta (Tuscorora administrative center for ten formerly Siouan Coree towns) came into the hands of the Patetown Pates, on Stoney Creek (which never had a stone in it). Isham Pate, son of James Pate, began his military career as a naval midshipman, in the Pate (Pett) family naval tradition. He ended his military career as his grandfather Thorogood had done, as a major (in the North Carolina militia)--as did Thomas Pate, the Yorktown ferryman.

Major Isham Pate was the father of Bryant Handley Pate, from whom one major line of Patetown Pates descends. The other major Patetown Pate line is that of Shadrach Pate, son of Charles Pate (who went to South Carolina, to claim indemnity for the death of his father, Major Thoroughgood Pate).16

A Rootsweb posting suggests some unverifiable connections to previous generations of Virginia Pates, and even suggests an alternate spelling.

The direct lineage of the Pate/Pait family of Bladen County NC can be traced only back to Thoroughgood Pate (about 1635 ) It is my belief that he is somehow related to the Pate's of the Jamestowne settlement of VA., and Thomas Pate of Yorktowne, VA. Thoroughgood Pate and wife Sarah Chevin were once residents of Surry County, Virginia, and that Thoroughgood left that area with his brother for North Carolina. His departure may have been an excape [sic] from prosecution or debtor's prison, if this record refers to the same Thoroughgood Pate; "Mr. Thomas Ligon sued by Howell Pryse at last court, for the escape of one Thurgood Pate, a prisoner in his custody. "(Charles City County Court Orders, Vol II, 1658-1661, p. 141, abstracted by Beverly Fleet...17

One Pate researcher named Al Pate has posted this information on Genealogy.com

Thoroughgood .... escaped from debtor's prison in Norfolk, Virginia, and made his way to the Roanoke Valley when he was a young man. In the Roanoke Valley he was in association with Skipwith cousins, and others, like Robert Beverly and John Pate, who cohabited with the Siouan Tutelo, Saponi and Acconeechee Indians who were natives there. These Indians controlled the trade in the area at the time, as Beverly indicates in his HISTORY.

It is my opinion that young Thoroughgood had sons by Indian morganatic wives, as did most of the Welshmen in the area back then. Colonial records indicate Thoroughgood was in association with Thomas Chevin in the Roanoke Valley. Thomas Chevin was an English tax collector. He was doubtless related to Nathaniel Chevin, Deputy Lord Proprietor of North Carolina, since Thoroughgood married Sarah, sister of Nathaniel. It is my opinion that William, son of Thoroughgood, was Sarah's only son.

In her will Sarah indicated she did not want William raised by his older brothers. In what was thought to be a kindness, records of the early Pates were systematically destroyed. William thrived and prospered under the fosterage and tutelage of Nathaniel Chevin. It was only through the auspices of baby (half-?) brother William that Charles, James and John were able to get a square mile tract in what later became Patetown in the now Wayne County, North Carolina.18

The information below from a Genealogy.com posting gives a little more information about Patetown (Peyton), North Carolina, a suburb of Goldsboro, NC..

The store, pharmacy and funeral parlor of my great uncle Byron Leslie Pate is over a century old. It is one block north of the sign in the photo. The building is now a store selling wood carvings, and there is an Indian in feather headdress on the top of the front of it. This is in the unincorporated community of Belfast, founded by Irish in the Civil War era, where they intermarried with Pates and other Tudor era surnames (including Tudor), such as Seymours and Bedfords.

According to J.M. Hollowell, in a series of artcles in THE GOLDSBORO NEWS ARGUS, written in 1909, there were more than 500 Pates in the Stoney Creek basin of Wayne County before the Civil War. Many of the Pates of that era were scattered all over the country--and the world--by the Civil War. The Stoney Creek basin is filled with families of interest to those visiting Patetown in search of North Carolina ancestors.

Patetown is a suburb of Goldsboro, NC. It is an unincorporated community north of Goldsboro, that was originally the Tuscarora Indian administrative center of ten towns , known as Torhunta. It was settled by Pates in 1713, when the Tuscarora insurrection known as "The Tuscarora War" was put down John Pate (spelled Peat in early records and F. Roy Johnson's two-volume history of the Tuscaroras), and Blount cousins from Oconerunt (now Greenville).

Patetown area lands were originally patented in 1738, when William Pate, youngest son of Thoroughgood Pate of Edenton and Bertie County (and nephew of Deputy Lord Proprietor Nathaniel Chevin) sold to Charles Pate, John Pate and John Monk one square mile of land there. As landowners the Pates, and kin, there were then able to add to their holdings, in spite of early compromising involvements with Indians (Corees and Tuscaroras)..19

Another Rootswb posting provides this information.

Dr. James Peacock, DVM, of Clermont, FL, is probably the pre-eminent
researcher in the US on the Thoroughgood Pate line. Regrettably he does not use a computer or e-mail and has, in the past, indicated that he would not use them. He has published, in limited release, a series of monographs or papers on this Pate line under the title "Pate Pioneers on the Pee Dee River". There are in fact two Pee Dee Rivers in North and South Carolina. These are the Pee Dee and the Lesser or Little Pee Dee. The converge near Socastee, SC and drain into Winyah Bay near Georgetown, SC. Between the two rivers lie three counties in NC and three in SC. In NC you will find Richmond, Scotland and Robeson counties and in SC, Marlboro, Dillion and Marion counties. The Pate lines in this area have been the progenitors of dozens upon dozens, if not hundreds of Pate families throughout the US, particularity the south and mid west.

Dr Peacock, in one paper, provides (verbatim) as follows:

1 - Thor. Pate - died Chowan County, North Carolina 1713
Research is incomplete.
2 - Charles Pate I - died after 1769 in Dobbs County, North
Carolina. Research is incomplete.
3 - Thor. Pate - b. ca 1725-1730, d. ca 1802 in Richmond
Co, North Carolina. m. Winefred Stewart. She d.
after 1820. No evidence of a prior marriage.20

This information supports the claim that Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1728 - 1802) was the son of Charles Pate; not Charles Pate's brother, Thoroughgood.

A Rootsweb posting lists this partial Pate family tree.

Generation No. 1

1. Thoroughgood4 Pate, Colonel (Charles3, Thoroughgood2, Thomas1) was born 1735 in Anson Co., NC, and died Aft. 1802 in Richmond Co., NC. He married Winifred Stewart. She was born Abt. 1737 in Richmond Co., NC, and died 1826.

Children of Thoroughgood Pate and Winifred Stewart are:

2 i. Samuel5 Pate, born Bet. 1765 - 1770 in Richmond Co., NC; died 1850. He married Martha Sweeney.

3 ii. Sabra Pate, born 25 Dec 1775 in Richmond Co., NC; died Jul 1846 in Richmond Co., NC. She married George Wright 06 Dec 1791; born Abt. 1770 in Ireland1; died 27 Sep 1836 in (LDS: Rockdale, Cleveland Co., NC?)1.

4 iii. Thoroughgood Pate, Colonel, born 1782; died 24 Mar 1836 in Old Pate Cemetery, Scotland Co., NC3. He married Mary Jane McCollman Sep 1830; born 1807; died 14 Apr 1862.

5 iv. Stephen Pate, born Abt. 1785. He married Honor Swinney; born Abt.

Thoroughgood Pate (c. 1782-1836) - not a direct ancestor

Thoroughgood Pate (1782-1836) was not a direct ancestor of ours. He did not migrate to Tennessee, but stayed behind in Richmond County, North Carolina (present-day Scotland County) and is buried in the Pate Cemetery near Gibson, NC. I include this information about him here because his named turned up in my research. I believe that he was the brother of Stephen Pate (c. 1770-1839, father of Sally Pate, my ggg-grandmother).

We can learn more about this Thoroughgood Pate and his wife Mary Jane McCollman from Richmond County Estate Records:

1836 October Term. To the Worshipful Court of Richmond. The Petition of Jane Pate, widow of Thoroughgood Pate late of said County deceased, respectfully sheweth, that her husband died seized and possessed of several tracts of land in said County amounting to in All about one thousand acres to all of which lands and tenements and your petitioner has a right to her Dower. Your petitioner therefore prays that your Worshipful Court may assign her rightful Dower in said lands and issue the necessary Writs and Orders to that effect accordingly and that your petitioner shall ever pray. [signed] Jane Pate. Entered by L. A. Drake.22

Notes for Mary Jane McCollman:

On an 22 October 1845 list of the parents and their children in Richmond County Rockdale School District, Jane Pate (widow) is shown as the mother of James, George & Mary Pate.

1853 October Term of Richmond County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. To the Worshipful the Justices of Richmond County Court, now sitting. The Petition of James Pate and George Pate who petition by their regular guardian, Malcom McColeman, humbly sheweth unto your Worships that Throughgood Pate, late of Richmond County, departed this life intestate in the Month of ---1836 leaving your petitioners his only heirs at law and that your petitioner James has arrived at the law-ful age and now entitled to received his full share of his father's estate. Your petitioner further sheweth unto your Worships that their father, Thoroughgood Pate, died seized and possessed of the following lands or parcels of land situate lying and being in the County of Richmond on the Joe's Creek and its waters viz. One tract containing about 485 acres adjoining Nathaniel Gibson, John C. Graham and others, one tract containing about 100 acres adjoining Arch McNeill, 1/4 Malloy and others, one of two acres adjoining Peter Hannah, John P. Knight
and others. Also another tract contain-ing by supposition about five hundred and eighty acres more or less, adjoining Jane Pate, Nelson Gibson and others, also another tract containing about fifty acres ad-joining Jane Pate, John P. Knight and others which descended to your petitioners as tenants in common. That a partition of said several tracts of land in severalty remains yet to be had. Your petitioners pray your Worships to appoint five freeholders un-connected with your petitioners either by consequenity or affinity who together with the surveyor to be appointed by this Court shall run the premises and partition the said lands among your petitioners according to law and for further relief and as in duty bound they will every pray. [signed] A. Little for Petitioners. Thomas Gibson, Surveyor. Freeholders appointed were Nelson Gibson, Daniel McGregor, Charles Malloy, Malcom McNeill and Archibald McNeill. Estate Recs. 1772-1933 CR

The information gets sketchy with the gggrandfather. My grandmother is from the same area with the last names of Carlton and Ashley. I have visited the original cemetery and church there but the names are almost gone from the stones. A cousin, Barbara Clark, gave me a lot of the history. She researched and put together a book, mostly from tax and property info and from Jinks Pee Dee papers.
I want to find my relatives graves but have not had any luck. My great grandfather and great grandmother died within three years of each other, approximately 1897 and 1900, leaving eight children that were placed with different relatives. My grandfather was the oldest at 21 and he and my grandmother who was fourteen helped with several of the girls that were close to my grandmother's age. Anyone knowing about the family of John Curtis Pate, my grandfather. His father was John also. His Grandfather was Richmond Love Pate, db-1827. His uncle had the same name but was born in 1815, approximately. They really confuse the line.

They married in 1880 and she gave birth to my grandfather in 1891 as well as having 4 previous children. I have had my Y-DNA tested by two reference labs and have no connections to others with the surname "Love". But I do keep coming up with 90%+ matches to the surname "Pate", especially to the "Thorough Pate" line. Until I looked at the land patents in Blackwood Twp I thought I was a "Love". Turns out that the households of Bentin and Alfred Pate were within a few houses from my great grandmothers father and mother, Henry and Jemima Davis. Elizas husband, Robert A. Love, supposedly before the birth of my grandfather disappeared but was seen about 10 years later in Stone Co Arkansas and listing himself as a widower. I am pretty sure Eliza had an affair with either Alfred or Bentin Pate or one of their kin and her husband left her to her father where they all moved to LA to avoid disgrace. No mention of this affair in my family except in a story my aunt wrote about a fictional character having such an affair.
Any family stories about an adulterous affair with a "Love and a Pate"?

I am related to the Pate family. My Great grandfather was John Asbury Free who married Ann(a) Pate and had a set of twins around 1920(1921) in Tuscaloosa, AL. John Asbury Free's parents were James Madison Free (Born in Gwinnette County GA around 1854 or 1856) and Elizabeth Jane Hall. They were in Gordo -Reform area in Alabama.

John Asbury Free married and moved to Tuscaloosa, AL. He had been married one before to a lady with the last name of Yurby(not sure of spelling).

John A. Free and Ann(a) Pate had a set of twins.

Trying to locate family. The twins were John Hester Free and Willis Vester Free. My line is through Willis. Ann(a) grandparents were Charles Raburn Pate and Milly (Amelia) (sp?) Any help locating this line of the Pate family would be greatly appreciated.

Also would like to contact Dale Grissom as it looks like we share the same ancestors from his last e-mail here.

Has anyone found what Millie's maiden name was? Her given name may have been EMILY as she had a granddaughter of that name. An Ala. church roll gives her name as Amelia.

Comments:I love what you are doing here. I'm very proud of my Pate name and would love to know more about where we orginated from and how we got here to America. I had heard at one time we were forced to come because of some brawl between brothers. I haven't a clue if this is true or not. lol

We have several "Pate's" here in Alabama Tuscaloosa County and Pickens County as well. I know there are different sets of Pates as well. But believe that is due to another family disagreement as well. So they dont claim each other but my daddy always said we were kin.

Our set has ventured to Salinas, CA, Florida and Texas that I know of. I know the names of most of our Pate family and could possibly round up more information.

Our Pate traits as we call them are dark/black hair and blue eyes. The other Pates usually have dark/black hair and brown eyes. Cherokee runs in our Pates as well. Very proud, hard workers. We tend to have bad tempers when pushed. The men tend to be a touch over barring. The women are very nurturing and love there children (right or wrong). My Dad and his siblings love to fuss and would get so loud. But don't let anyone else mess with them. Guess that would be typical with most any family. lol

Thank you for taking time to read this if you would like me to get a list of our Pate's I would be glad to do so.

William D's fathers name was Edmund Pate(1783) who had two sons..ortho and Henry clay Pate.(edmund was married to sarah bailey) I am confused as it shows william D pate was married to a cynthia ann zirkle.

Maybe it's my brain but it seems like either the family tree doesnt fork or william Edgar and cynthia were never married. Can anyone help solve this mystery.

Comments:My surname is "Love", my great grandmother was Eliza Davis Love. She lived in Howard County Arkansas and was married to a Robert A. Love. They married in 1880 and she gave birth to my grandfather in 1891 as well as having 4 previous children. I have had my Y-DNA tested by two reference labs and have no connections to others with the surname "Love". But I do keep coming up with
90%+ matches to the surname "Pate". Especially to the "Thoroughgood Pate" line. Until I looked at land patents in Blackwood Twp/Howard County AR I thought I was a "Love". Turns out that the households of Bentin and Alfred Pate were within a few houses from my grandmothers father, Henry Davis and his wife Jemima. Not long after Eliza became pregnant with my grandfather,Henry, she and Henry Davis's household up and moved to Quitman LA where my grandfather was born. Her husband, Robert A. Love, supposedly disappeared but was seen about 10 years later in Arkansas listing himself as a widower.
I am pretty sure Eliza had an affair with either Alfed or Bentin or one of their kin and her husband left her to her father where they all moved to LA to avoid disgrace.
No mention of this affair in my family except in a story my aunt wrote about a fictional character having such an affair.

Any family stories about a 'love triangle' with a Love or Pate?

I just found your page and am very thankful. Like others I am struggling with the Pates of Virginia. My great uncle J.R. Hendrick did extensive research and produced a "family" book.
But--- my connection starts with Matthew Pate and Anne Reade of Gloucester Co.Va. and continue through the Matthews--I think. It starts with (1)Matthew/Anne Reade (2) Matthew/Buck(3) Matthew/Dabney(4)Ann/Milliner Haynes to Ky.
In your chart Edward is listed as father to Matthew (3) but Edward did not arrive in Bedford Co until right before his death in 1767. Matthew and the other Pates were there in 1750's. Could Edward be an Uncle? Or who was Edward's father?
Can you help? Or any suggestions? I have done extensive research.

Do you have any information on who she married. I think this is the same person that may have married into my line. Please send me an email. Here's the link where I found this marriage: Woodman Stockley Polly Draper 22 Apr 1790
