~Fugate Family Connections~
John Fugate
and Sarah(McCarty) Fugate
lived in Shenandoah Co, VA,
left there about 1772 for
Washington Co, VA.

They finally settled
in what is now
Russell-near Castlewood Co, VA.
John died there before August 1824.

John is NOT the son of
Josias &Mary(Martin) Fugate.

Sarah's maiden name is unproven,
but McCarty is quite possible.
John Fugate and William Fugate
lived in Russell Co, VA,
before 1820.

They were probably related,
but the relationship
hasn't yet been proven

Any connection
would have come out of
King George Co, VA,
before 1750.
William Fugate
son of
Martin &Sarah(LNU) Fugate

grandson of
Josias &Mary(Martin) Fugate
b: Abt 1783 Washington Co, VA
d: Abt 1851 Scott Co, VA
m: Lydia Tate

The ancestry
of William's grandfather
Josias Fugate is yet unproven
(as of April 2005);
but in any case the

John Fugate
[who married Sarah McCarty]
is NOT the John who is son of
Josias &Mary(Martin) Fugate.

    ~Jonathan Fugate's Migrations~

    Jonathan applied for a Revolutionary War pension.
    In that application, he said he was born in
    Shenandoah Co, VA,
    25 Jan 1758.

    He was in
    Russell Co, VA,
    for a few years sometime after the War,
    then moved to what was then
    Clay Co, KY

    He was on the Russell Co, VA, tax lists of
    1799, 1800, 1801 & 1803 but not later.

    He apparently moved to KY about 1804.

    ~Dr. Bock Lists Jonathan's Children~

    In about 1900, a Dr. Bock made a list
    of Jonathan's & Lettie's children from having talked
    to his patients and asking them about their ancestors.
    Trouble is, several of the people on that list can
    be shown to belong to other families.

    Here is Dr. Bock's list,

    known not to belong to Jonathan & Lettie:

    MARTIN, "left country"
