~Fugate Family Connections~
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.
William Fugate and John 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.
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.
