Brother Bolin Green (BG) Pate was in the Civil War. Full account from his pension application papers on his page (many thanks to Alice Peterie for sending the copy). BG Pate married in 1866 in Gibson County to Mary A Williams.


Believe her father died before 1870, though his tombstone in the Avery Cemetery is broken, leaving date of death illegible. For a reason I have not come across, some researchers put his death date as 1906, but he is not with the family in the 1870 census onward. I presume this puts his death before 1870, because he wouldn't have merited a place in her family's graveyard if his absence was due to divorce.

Have not found them beyond 1880, however a 2001 post on genealogy.com by Carol Lumsden said that her great-grandmother, Lola Elizabeth Coburn, was the daughter of Jim Coburn and a Pate. Sounds like Lola Elizabeth and Louisa (born c.1877) may have been the same person.
