Alexander Quate, born abt 1801, appears to be born in North Carolina.I'm not sure who his father was or where he was born. I was told that one of the Quates moved from Ireland.Another relative said that David Quate moved to Murfreesboro, TN to work (or own) a flour mill. Many of his children were born in TN.His family later moved to Fannin County, TX, where, I'm assuming, my grandmother met my grandfather (Mollie and Henry).I really would like to know exactly who moved where and why :-).I would like to have first, middle and last names of the family members you know about, as well as their birthdate, birthplace, deathdate and deathplace and burial place.Also, maiden names of the ladies in the family, their spouses and children and their birth and death information.That's a lot to ask of you, I know.If you are more comfortable with giving information of your living family, you're welcome to send it to my email address.Thank you so very much, Brandon.I'm assuming you're a teacher or professor?
