    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.11

      After the death of Keziah's mother, Keziah (Ward) Tate, the children sold their shares to various people. Luanner Tate sold her share in 1837 to Edmund Pendleton, being 1/12th of Nathaniel Tate's estate, joining William Waddy, William Thomas and William Corker (DB V p.591). Nathaniel W. Tate sold his undivided share to Elisha Jackson; William G. & Susan Corker and Mildred Tate sold theirs to Wm. W. Anderson (DB W p.192, 290). Becoming an insolvent debtor in 1835, Reuben had turned over his interest to A.W. Perkins, Sheriff, being 1/12th of 70 or 80 acres allotted to his mother Keziah Tate as her dower (DB V p.55). A Bill of Equity Decree was entered November 11, 1844 in the case of Elisha Jackson vs Tate:

      Elisha Jackson showeth that many years ago Nathaniel Tate departed this life intestate leaving numerous children and a small tract of land, 67 acres. The children all reside in Virginia, viz: Polly Tate md. John R. Butler, Waddy Tate lives on the James River Canal, Nathaniel W. Tate sold his interest in said land to your orator, Agnes Tate md. Simeon Foster, John Tate, Austin Tate, Lavinia Tate md. Thompson Tate, Fanny Tate md. John G. Butler, Mildred Tate, Susan Tate md. Gatewood Corker, Luanner Tate and Reubin Tate.


      The 'orator' (Elisha Jackson) erred in naming Austin Tate as a son of Nathaniel. The marriage register stated Jane O. Tate's mother: Keziah Tate. Austin was the son of Nathan Tate & Frances (Gentry) Tate (Nathan's will, WB 6 p.284). As a Commissioner appointed by the Court, Elisha Jackson sold Nathaniel Tate's land to Thompson Tate, the highest bidder (MB 1844-47 p.14). The names of the children of Thompson & Keziah Lavinia Tate are taken from 1850/1860/1870 census records for Louisa Co. and the Marriage Register.
