My name is Carol Cate Dison. My dad was Thomas R. Cate, Jr. My grandparents were Thomas R. Cate and Selma A. Cate. My great grandfather was Wade Lawrence Cate, son of Thomas L. Cate and Dorcas Hamilton Cate. Our family records that have been passed down indicate that Thomas L. was the son of Thomas Cate and Rebekah Lawrence. Thomas Cate was a descendent of John Cate Jr, and John Cate Sr. I have quite a few of the old family photographs, which I have listed on a posting on the Cate family forum.
