I am researching my 5th great grandfather, William ROBERTSON (abt 1760, Pee Dee, VA -- 1843, Tippah Co., MS)
I have posted several messages re: Booker PATE's connection to my Margaret BLACKWOOD RAINEY (# 2491, #2707, #2860).Margaret was the grand daughter of William ROBERTSON, above.
Here is some info I located regarding William ROBERTSON & the PATE line:
Cal's Column, "Electronic," May 10, 1951,
"A Venire for the ensuing County Court: viz: Thomas DRAPER, James DRAPER, Henry HUDDLESTON, Lee SULLIVAN, William SULLIVAN, William ANDERSON, Uriah ANDERSON, John FITZGERALD, Christopher FULLER,
William ROBERTSON, Willeroy PATE, Edward PATE, Booker PATE,
James ROBERTS, Isaac GREEN, Jacob BOWERMAN, Charles McClENNAN, William MARCHBANKS, William KELTON, Elijah HEDGECOCK, John STEEL, Nathaniel RIDLEY, Thomas KEATON, Henry McKINNEY, Charles CARTER, Thomas WILLIAMSON, Esom GRAVES, Jacob JENKINS, George AUSBROOKS, James FISHER, James AARMSTRONG, Thomas WALLACE, Henry SADLER, William HOLLIDAY, George LEEPER and Benjamin HOLLLIDAY." Here we have a list that included some of the leading Smith County citizens in 1801.
Can anyone add information to any of these PATE family members?Can anyone attach them to my BLACKWOOD or ROBERTSON line?
