      On August 1844, John Tate and his wife, Jane, with his brothers Robert C. and his wife Nancy; Elish and wife, Eliza; and William Tate met and sold 170 acres of land on which their father, Joseph Tate (deceased) lived. After 1844, John Tate with his family moved from Russell County, VA to Powell's Valley, VA in what was then a part of Lee County, now a part of Wise County, VA where he settled.
