Surnames: Cate, Cates, Cate's
I am the daughter of Gary Lyne Cate born 1-7-43 to:
Ira Hastings Cate and Sarah Lee Lucas Cate.
My father is buried at Old Hall Cemetary next to his mother and Dad. Next to his father is his grandparents James and Lenora Cate. There are many Cate and Cates at Old Hall, some markers are back some ways under a tree. My Dad told me who they were and how they were related, but I can not remember. I do remember him talking about Uncle Homer.

Ira was married atleast 3 times. Wife 1) Bertha Curtis, they had three children that died and whose graves are next to my dad, Totsie, Curtis and (?) He also married Janie Cates, Janie had my Uncle George F Cates that past away recently, Aunt Frances and Myrtlee. I think Sara had Edward he was named after Ira's brother Edward but this child could have been Janie's or Bertha's I never thought to ask. Sara had my Aunts Barbara Janice, Beverly, and Uncle Johnny (named after Ira's brother John) I have always been told that Grandpa had 15 brothers and one sister. I am sure his father also had many wifes and Children.

The Cate's all have a familuar look and sound about them,
To all my Cate Family I say Hello,
P.S. Glad our little group wasn't the only ones plagued by the Cate - Cate's - Cates problem.

This stuff is interesting!

Mary,
Thanks for the post. I have not come across your Dad in my search yet, sure I will at some point. I have seen only 2 other Ira Cate(s) and they were in Tennesse.
My Great grandparents were James and Lenora Cate came to Texas from Tennesse. I am told many of his brothers and uncles also came in the 1800's and 1900's. The children I have found listed in census and Newspaper articles are: James, Alonzo "Dorris", E. Homer, John Floyd, Jesse, Dellous, Carlos, Charlotte. Ira Hastens Cate.
It is believed that my Great Grandfather's father was Solomon A. Cate, his children were Ellen, Anderson, Nancy,Mary, Jane, Sara J, John... Solomon also had a brother named James Cate, I am told that Robert Cate was their father. All the uncles lived in the Grapevine, lake Dallas, Lewisville, Little Elm area. Some were in Dallas and Tarrant County. I have heard of Sam what is the time of his birth/death?
I have several cousins that are researching, I will be glad to ask them for info on your branch of the tree.
