From Laurinburg, Scotland County, drive west on Hwy #79, 5.9 miles to Dunc Pate Road. Turn left. Drive about 100 yards to the edge of a field. Look to your right about 50 yards, and near the edge of the woods you will see a small brick fenced cemetery.

This tract of land was granted by King George III to Samuel Snead in 1767, conveyed by Snead to Rice Henderson in 1768.  Henderson conveyed this land to Thoroughgood Pate I of English descent in 1769, and Pate to Thoroughgood Pate II in 1800.  Thoroughgood Pate II died in 1836. Sons of Thoroughgood Pate II: James Hamilton Pate died in 1902, and George Thoroughgood Pate died in 1922.
