I received an email from an interested third party, who happens to be a Pate descendant, that has indicated that Abimilec Pate is the son of Bennett Pate. I requested for them to give me any shred of documentation that links Abimilec Pate to Thoroughgood Pate. Now, I am waiting for a response from them. By the way, that email is from someone that I have not been in contact with. So,the beat goes on,thank you very much.
