      Subject: Re: How are you related to the Dades?

      BUT Horatio Dade had two sons named Townshend/Townsend: Robert Townshend Dade, my ancestor, born circa 1750 and Townshend Dade born 1766. Those two sons were half-brothers. I have no idea why the instance of two sons with the same name.

      There may have been family problems because the genealogy of the family by William Dade, I think that is the correct one, does not mention Robert Townshend Dade, only mentions the marriage of Horatio Dade to Frances Richards.

      Robert T. was in King George County until the 1790s when he moved to N.C. The courthouse of King George is on land sold to the county by R.T.

      The only conclusion I have come to is that Horatio and Mary lived in Robert T.'s mother's home and after Horatio Dade died he asked the family to move elsewhere as that was his property. But, I have nothing to prove that other than that part of the line does not acknowledge him.
