Notes for William FUGATE:
The Fugate Family of Russell County, Virginia ‑ Genealogy by Dr. David Faris, Gateway Press, Baltimore, Maryland, Published 1986. Reference ‑ Pg. 63 States William Fugate, son of William and Jane Fugate, was born (according to his gravestone) on 2 Nov 1799. He ws married to Nancy Riley, daughter of John and Louisa Gibson‑Riley. She was born about 1812. Descendants provide this information: William "Bill" Fugate came from Virginia with pack on his back, settled in Claiborne County, Tennessee. It's told that Nancy Riley's father John left Virginia to keep his daughter Nancy from marrying Bill Fugate because of his poverty. When Bill died, he had LARGE HOLDINGS and could have bought OUT ALL THE RILEYS. He was a Sheriff of Claiborne County at one time. During the Civil War, a roving rebel gang killed one of John and Louisa's sons because he wouldn't tell where his father was, and this turned the Rileys and Nancy's sons into Union sympathizers. The daughters, however, were married to Parkeys and were rebel sympathizers. Virginia Fugate reported that the Riley incident was told to her husband by Elisha Fugate, grandson of Martin Fugate, and told to him by John Riley, nephew of Nancy Riley. Reference ‑ Pg. 64 States William Fugate died on Jan 9, 1855. Nancy Riley‑Fugate was residing with her daughter Mary at the time of the 1880 census. They were buried in the Family Plot on the Farm of Neil Walker, one mile from John N. Fugate.

PRSACKS@worldnet.att.net (PATRICIA SACKS)
I am sending this to the e‑mail address given on the Claiborne County Web Site, since I wasn't sure of your personal e‑mail address. I think it is jpayne5744@aol.com; is that right?]
Dear Mr. Payne,
A few months ago I began researching my family tree in Claiborne County, and was recently perusing your genealogy web page.
I have a couple of questions about your McVey ancestry:
1) Is your #21, Minerva McVey, the same Minerva McVey who was married to Henry Harrison Friar on Jan 20, 1867?  The age looks about right. (I am not descended from this couple but have some close cousins who are.)
2) One of the old deeds in my possession from our family place in Claiborne County transfers a piece of property from F. L. McVey and his wife Mary E. McVey to my great‑grandfather Thomas Riley on Feb 25, 1881.   Do you think this might be your #19, Fielding L.?   (Just curious; the property would have been off what is now Cedar Fork Road and Alanthus Hill Road {63E} near the old Hoop Creek area.)
