    Robert's will was dated 5 Nov. 1765 in Orange County, and lists his wife, children and one granddaughter. The will was probated in the March term of court, 1767. His sons, Thomas and Joseph were executors.

    Thomas Cate, first son of Robert and Elizabeth Cates of Orange County, was sometimes referred to as "Road Tom," because of his job as a surveyor.

He married a second time, sometime after 1806, to Yourath (Urith McMillian, daughter of Alexander McMillian. Thomas died in Newberry Dist., S.C. abt 1817.
