"John Cate Sr. came to Dumplin Valley in 1782 from North Carolina. He
was one of the passengers on the ship Safety from England, settling
first in Edenten, N.C. then moved to Orange Co., N.C. and then to
Dumplin. He had 15 children and was said to be the "patriarchal" leader
of the entire valley much in the manner of Abraham. He was one of the
charter members of Dumplin Valley Baptist Church, which is still in
1999 an active church. He is buried in the church cemetery.
The old John Cate home is a "historic Dumplin Valley home". The house
was built in 1825 is a colonial style red brick home painted white. The
bricks made by slaves. It is said Mary still makes appearances in the
home. Dumplin Creek was said to have gotten it's name during the
Revolutionary War. The local militia was camped at the creek and making
dumplings for their supper, when the British attacked and scattered the
locals, then dumped the dumplings into the creek." ....
