№ 23 Valentine Cagle was born on the upper Deep River, in or near the present county of Guilford, NC. He migrated with his father and brothers to what is now Moore Co., NC where he grew up during the 1760s and 1770s.

As a young man he accompanied his father and brothers to what is now the Cabarrus/Stanly Co, region of NC; there Valentine acquired land in the 1780s on Island Creek, in the SW part of present Stanly as did his brother № 47 Jacob 1755-1845; however, Jacob returned to Cumberland Co in 1781, and lived in Cumberland/Moore until 1800, when he again moved westward, eventually entering land in old Buncombe (present Transylvania) County in 1807.

In 1794, Valentine was still on Island Creek, and is noted as being an adjacent landowner and chain carrier, at the land entry of Charles Cagle Sr 1740s-1801, who was moving to Montgomery (present Stanly) County from adjoining Cabarrus County.

By 1799, he had moved again this time to old Buncombe, now Henderson, County, NC, where he was listed in the 1800 Federal Census with four sons in his household. Although, the names of the sons are not listed, they are believed to be Valentine Jr., born about 1786, Charles, b. about 1780s or 1790s, Henry b. abt 1793, and John, 1798-1863. There also, may have been a fifth son, George born abt 1789. Of these sons, only John is documented from North Carolina records, with the account of his baptism being preserved in St John's Lutheran Church, in Cabarrus Co., NC, just across the county line from Stanly County. The account as translated from the German record book of the minister, records the baptism of John and his sister Anna Mary, as follows:

Jan 28, 1798 Baptism of Anna Mary Kagle, born 1794. Daughter of Velti Kagle and wife Catherine. Performed at the house of John Kreebs.

Jan 28, 1798 Baptism of John Kegel, born Jan 17, 1979. Son of Velti Kegel and Catherine.
Sponsors: Andrew Stauch and wife Elizabeth.

It is known that “Velti” is a diminutive from of the name Valentine. The birth date of John Cagle, as given in his baptismal records, differs somewhat from that given in his family Bible of 13 Jul 1798, but it is obvious the same person is intended.

Valentine remained on Island Creek until 1798 when he moved his family to old Buncombe Co, present Henderson Co, NC, where he entered land on the South side of Hooper's Creek on 2 Aug 1798 per #689; 200 acres granted #741, issued 6 Dec 1799 which represented entry Nr. 7486, Book 103, pg 243 of Land Grants for Buncombe/Henderson Co., NC.

His household in the 1800 census of Buncombe Co showed 4 sons and three daughters at home. All of these sons eventually made their way into northern Alabama in the 1830, settling in Winston, Marion, DeKalb, and Jackson Counties.

1800 Buncombe Co; NC:
Cagle, Valentine 1211-1021
Cagle, Charles 0001-3001
Cagle, Jacob 0010-1010

In 1804, Valentine sold 100 acres of land on Hooper's Creek to Charles Cagle (recorded Jul 8, 1806 in Buncombe Co., Deed Book 7, p. 440). This probably marks the time when Valentine moved to Tennessee, as he is not known to appear in NC records after this date. Charles Cagle sold his land in Buncombe Co. in 1810, and seems to have moved to Davidson Co., TN that year, perhaps in the company of Jacob. Neither, Charles nor Jacob is in the 1810 census of Buncombe Co, NC though both are on the 1811 Tax List of Davidson Co, TN. Charles seems to have returned to Buncombe Co in 1816, where he bought land on Mills River, and remained until 1819; by 1820, was back in Davidson Co., TN. Valentine, upon leaving NC, is said by family tradition to have moved to Davidson Co., TN, though he has not been located in the records there. By 1810, a Valentine Cagle was in the Cherokee lands in NE Alabama (probably in the Paint Rock River valley, present Jackson Co), and by 1812, a Valentine Cagle was present on the Tax List of Warren Co., TN, an area which had been opened up to white settlement in 1807. However, it is unclear whether one or both of these references were to Valentine himself, or to his son Valentine Jr., born c. 1786, who was a young adult by this time. There is also reason to believe that Valentine may have lived for a period in Haversham Co., GA during the 1810s, and that his daughter Anna Mary Cagle, b. 1794, lived there during this period. A Valentine Cagle was in the Cherokee lands in NE Alabama again in 1820, though it is unknown if this was Sr or Jr; Valentine Sr seems to have been dead by 1830, and by the mid-1830s, his sons Valentine Jr., Henry, and John 1798-1863, had settled in what is now Winston Co., AL.

With the opening of Indian Lands to white settlement in south-central Tennessee in 1807, Valentine soon left old Buncombe Co., NC and migrated to that section of Tennessee. His absence from the 1810 census of Buncombe might suggest that he moved to TN sometime during the 1807-1810 era. Joining him in Warren Co., TN where he settled, was his brother Jacob, b. 1755 and both men were present on the Warren Co. Tax List of 1812.

Valentine Sr did not appear in the 1820 census. His sons split up in different areas, Valentine Jr and Henry in White Co., IL, George and John in Marion Co., TN, and Charles in Warren Co., TN - before regrouping in Walker, present Winston, Co., AL in the mid-1830s. Henry Cagle, a son of Valentine was in Franklin Co., IL as early as 1820. In that year, the Fed Census of Franklin Co., IL lists an older man in Henry's household in the 45+ category, i.e., before 1775. This might be a clue as to the final residence of Valentine Cagle Sr, who disappears from records of Tennessee after the 1815 Tax List of Warren County. If the elder male in Henry's household was his father, he would have been 63 yrs of age. At first glance, the connection between Tennessee and Southern Illinois might seem unusual; however, a study of travel patterns in that era will explain the connection. The settlers moved back and forth between Alabama, Tennessee and Illinois by way of the Tennessee River; a number of moves, by various Cagle families, were made by river travel well into the 1850s and perhaps beyond, until the river boats were replaced by railroads.

By the 1840s, Valentine Jr, and George had settled in the Jackson/DeKalb area of AL.

Cagle, Susan C. 69 NC No Occupation listed /$600 Illit. p.044
(widow of Charles Cagle of 1830 Bledsoe County, Tennessee and who died in Warren County, Tennessee 1843,

Susan was the daughter of George Cagle and Rebecca Cagle. George was the son of old David b-1728. His younger brother Jacob b-1755, was the father of Charles Cagle. They were first cousins. Susan moved to Bledsoe Co., TN

After death of Charles, Susannah lived with her son Henry Edward Cagle and wife Martha and children. Susannah died after 1850. There is a will for Charles Cagle dated September 25, 1842, Warren County, TN. All of their children are listed; also, the daughters husbands are listed. Other date for the will is November 04, 1843, so he probably died a little earlier than this date.

№ 37 Robert Tate was born 1780 on Big Moccasin Creek, near the Holston River. It is thought that his full name was Robert Hood Tate III, but no documentary proof has been found. He and his wife, Susannah, had been living in Warren County, TN before 1806, since he signed, with his brother, a petition requesting that there be a new County formed. He and his wife, Susannah were named in the deed on October 14, 1816 when the heirs of Robert Hood Tate, II dec'd sold the home plantation in Russell County, VA.

They settled in Warren County, TN near his brother № 1 Major James Tate on Taylor's Creek out of McMinnville, Warren County, TN.

Tate sold 150 acres adj. № 15 Aaron Tate, where he then lived, to John Gross, no wife signed dower. The Federal Census of 1820, Warren County, TN lists this family with 3 sons and 5 daughters. In 1830 there were still 3 sons, however, one under 10 years of age. He married Cynthia, born 1805, in Georgia. She was living with son Aaron in 1880.
