Re: Pate Family

In Reply to: Pate Family by GERALD KNIGHT of 1955

Gerald,

The land in Bedford County, Virginia, belonging to 1782 (year of death) Anthony Pate of Montgomery County, Virginia, (place of death) was located on the Middle Fork of Beaverdam Creek where it crosses current Highway 24 between Chamblissburg and Stewartsville in southern Bedford County.

His land was acquired by Bedford County Deed 1/114 dated Sep 5, 1756.

1782 Anthony Pate and his wife Sarah sold 100 acres of that land to John Keef, son of John Keef, on December 15, 1759, by Bedford County Deed 1/255. I suspect, but cannot yet document, that John Keef was a son-in-law.

1782 Anthony Pate and Sarah also sold 111 acres of that land to Thomas Pate on December 15, 1759, by Bedford County Deed 1/257.

They sold a further 111 acres of that land to John Pate on February 27, 1770, by Bedford County Deed 3/338.

And they sold the remaining 111 acres to their son-in-law John Wright on February 27, 1770, by Bedford County Deed 3/390, subject to a retained life estate. This John Wright is identified as 1803 John Wright of Bedford County, Virginia, and he married Elizabeth Pate, the daughter of 1782 Anthony Pate and Sarah (English) Pate.

On March 22, 1772, at Botetourt County Deed 1/383 Anthony Pate purchased 67 acres of land on Little River, in a part which later became Montgomery County and where he died in 1782.

Hope this is of help to you.
