About our family
I am the oldest son of Russell Eugene Pate Sr.and Shirley Jane Pate Sr.(Gordon).When I was a child growing up my family visits pertained mostly to my mothers sisters and brothers families.(Gordon) The closest relative on my fathers side of the family was my great uncle Eli Phillips.He lived close by where we lived,in the 1950's,at Commerce,Michigan.My parents bought a house in 1958 and my two brothers:Bruce and Gilbert moved to Walled Lake,Michigan.My sister Elizabeth and brother Mark lived there from 1960 until my mothers death in 2010. Gil's wife located our family of Pate's in early 1990's and found out dad had a step-brother too! Our Pate relatives are mainly located in,around,Bloomington,Indiana area.So we have fond heartfelt memories that occured in the 1950's,1960,1970,s and up until today. We look forward to many more in the future! Thank's for stopping by and visiting the family tree house where your alway's Welcomed! 3-1-2012
