Joy, My aunt Verlie wanted to reply to your post but was having some problems logging into this forum. Here is the info she sent me regarding your post:
"Pate was married twice but I don't know his first wife's name and never heard of a Scott.I think Thomas Yarber married Georgeanne Coren, Amanda's sister. I know she married one of Grandpa's bro." -Verlie Lee (Yarber)Hendrix
Amanda of course married John Washington Yarber.They are my great grandparents.
According to the information I have Thomas Moses Yarber (son of John Culpepper Yarber) married Georgianne Coren in 1899.The had 6 children: Grant, Elberta, Sherman, Herby, Everett and Lando.
I am not sure if this answers any of your questions, but I hope so.
