Proof of kinship available

In Reply to: Thomas Pate in Tuscaloosa and Pickens Counties, Alabama, 1820-40 by A.J. Pate of 947

For any descendants of this Thomas Pate, the Pate DNA Project offers a great opportunity to establish his kinship to the Daniel Pate (c. 1740-1791) family line.

Descendants of Newell Pate and Gilbert G. Pate are represented in our DNA Project, and kinship could be proven or disproven to these two men who were closely associated with Thomas in Tuscaloosa and Pickens Counties.

At this time, it seems highly unlikely that any of these kinships will ever be proven through traditional genealogical research. So DNA evidence is the last resort, and its proofs are conclusive.

There are currently 24 members in the family group that Thomas is most likely to belong to. There are 60 males in the total Project.

If you know any male Pate descendants of Thomas, please encourage them to join our Project and/or contact me.

To view the results for our current members, visit our website at and click on the "Y Results" tab at the upper right.
