In Reply to: Calling all Quates with NC roots! by Rebecca Quate of 33

REBECCA - MY GREAT GRANDMOTHERS NAME WAS LILLIAN QUATE. SHE WAS A VERY SMALL WOMAN AND SHE MARRIED ERNEST KIRKMAN IN THE LATE 1800S. SHE WAS BORN IN A LOG CABIN AT THE CORNER OF DAVIS MILL ROAD AND EAST STEEPLECHASE ROAD IN PLEASANT GARDEN NORTH CAROLINA (GUILFORD COUNTY). THE FAMILY HAD A LARGE FARM ON THAT SITE. THERE IS A YELLOW FARMHOUSE ON THAT CORNER THAT STILL STANDS WHICH THE FAMILY BUILT TO REPLACE THE LOG CABIN. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT YEAR THE LOG CABIN WAS BUILT. THE LAND WAS DEVELOPED INTO A HOUSING DEVELOPMENT AND MY UNCLE MADE THEM PUT UP THE SIGN QUATE AT THE FRONT OF THE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT. YOU CAN ENTER IT OFF OF DAVIS MILL ROAD AT HOLYOKE ROAD. ON DAVIS MILL PAST HOLYOKE WAS ALSO ANOTHER QUATE FARM. I AM TOLD THESE FARMS WERE IN THE FAMILY BACK TO THE 1700S BUT I HAVE KNOW WAY OF KNOWING. MY UNCLE(LILIAN QUATE'S SON) IS STILL ALIVE AND IN HIS EIGHTIES. HE WAS ONE OF HER YOUNGEST CHILDREN. HE IS STILL HAS A SHARP MIND AND KNOWS HIS MOTHERS HISTORY VERY WELL. MANY QUATES ARE BURIED IN THE TOWN OF PLEASANT GARDEN CEMETERY NOT FAR FROM GREENSBORO OFF OF PLEASANT GARDEN ROAD. IF I CAN HELP YOU PLEASE EMAIL ME AT MC9177@AOL.COM AS I THINK THIS GENEALOGY SITE HADS MY ACCOUNT CONFUSED WITH ANOTHER. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU AND MAYBE I COULD ARRANGE FOR YOU TO MEET MY UNCLE. BY THE WAY HE LIVES ACROOS THE STREET FROM THE QUATE FARM ON HIS MOTHERS PROPERTY AT THE CORNER OF DAVIS MILL AND HOLYOKE ROADS.I JUST VISITED HIM NOT LONG AGO- TIM LANAHAN STEVENSVILLE MARYLAND
