1 Christopher [1642] Choate is documented to have immigrated as an indentured servant to the Province of Maryland in 1676. He is identified by researchers as the first in the line of the "Choates of the South". It is hard to imagine the true reasons why a man of 34 would be inspired or compelled to leave the Old World for the New World. Indentured servants were typically bound for a period of 4-7 years after which they became "freemen" and then had the opportunity for upward mobility in the Province.

There is conjecture that Christopher [1642] was born in Rivenhall Parish, Essex County, England (approx. 35 miles NE of London) and is one of the children of Christopher Choate and Jane (buried: 10 Nov 1667) who resided there. Their children (baptism) were: Edward (29 Apr 1639), Christopher (4 Sep 1642), and John (3 Nov 1644, d. 15 Aug 1717).

Christopher [1642] completed his indentured service and became a "freeman" before 1681. His "freeman" status allowed him to survey 11 acres of land, "Chootes His Chance", in April 1681. This land on the Magothy River is probably where he worked and lived. The Provincial General Assembly paid him 174 pounds of tobacco for work, services, or other reasons in November 1681. There is no record of Christopher [1642] marrying and the name of his wife is not known. He does appear to have two known sons. A count of orphans in 1706 listed a guardian for "one of Chr Choats" and again in 1706 two Choates, Christopher [~1685] as head of household and Edward [~1686] appear for the first time together on a tax list indicating that Christopher has turned 21 and Edward is more than 16. It is assumed these two boys are the second generation of "Choates of the South". Christopher [1642] died before November 16, 1692 when an appraisement of his estate was made.

2 William Thomas Jr probably never met his father since he was born seven months before his father was mortally wounded in the Battle of Cold Harbor, VA (May 31 - June 12, 1864). The 1870 US Census lists William Thomas as 7 and living in a household headed by his mother with all his siblings except for his 18 year old brother John. John had married Matilda Edwards two years earlier and they are living in their own dwelling with their 1 yr daughter Sarah.

Martha, his mother, marries Levi Willey on 22 April 1875. Levi is 24 yrs older than Martha and lives four dwelling numbers away from the Choate family in the 1870 US US Census. William Thomas Jr is living with his mother and stepfather Levi Willey in the 1880 US US Census (see notes below).

The 1885 Iowa State Census lists - Solomon Choat 29, Sarah 30, Laura C 10, Rosa J 8, Mattie O, Wm S 0 plus Wm T 21 yrs.

William Thomas Jr. married Amelia Edwards, daughter of Isom C. Edwards & Linea "Linnie" Hackler on 25 Sept 1888 in Alleghany Co., NC. His brother Solomon Sabret was living in Fremont Co., IA in the 1880 US US Census. William Thomas moved to Hamburg, Fremont Co., IA sometime before Purr Lee was born. His wife, Amelia Edwards, was sickly and the family was advised to move back to VA for her health. They moved, when Purr Lee was 2-5 years old, near Independence, VA where they farmed and traded in horses and mules. Amelia Edwards died in April 2, 1900. William Thomas Choate Jr. remarried Mary Della Rector, daughter of Isaiah & Matilda Rector, 31 Jan 1903 in Grayson Co., VA.

William Thomas whistled a lot. He sold off the old farm in Independence (it has a family plot on it) and retired to Galax. 
Choate, William Thomas (I18)
3 Redmon's grandfather, Squire Thomas Choate, eventually moved on to Virginia. It was there he was executed by the Tories for his role in the American Revolution.
Redmon's father, Squire Choate, moved on to Tennessee where his son, Redmon, was born in 1799. In McNairy County, Tennessee, Redmon met and married Sarah McKenzie. Redmon and Sarah had five sons born to them in Tennessee, then moved to Shelby County, Texas where two more sons and six daughters were born.
The exact time Redmon came to Texas has not been determined, but it was before Texas gained independence from Mexico. His first land acquisition was in 1835, a league of land in Limestone County from the Mexican government on May 3, 1835; another league of land on October 11, 1835. During the Republic of Texas, received a total of 2614 acres in Shelby County in 1840. One tract was on the Sabine River where he and his family lived for a while until the Regulator-Moderator War. He then moved his family to the other tract that was in the Mt. Herman community. Here he raised his family. The old home is still standing today. Most of the Choates are buried in the Choate Cemetery that is on this land.

4 Isaac and his family are NORTHERN Choates (New Englanders) that have moved west. Some Revolutionary War soldiers received "bounty land warrants" in the upper Midwest. Many soldiers sold their warrants to land companies. Some New England soldiers and adventurers would follow the Mohawk or Catskill "turnpike" to Buffalo and then into the very upper Midwest.

The Choates of the South typically moved west by following the Tennessee River. 
Choate, Isaac NORTHERN? (I85)
5 Sabret [1730] Choate was the youngest of the four boys and one daughter of Christopher [1685] and Flora. He was born probably at Choate's Fancy his father's 100 acre plantation/farm very near St. Thomas' Garrison Church (Owings Mill, MD) and close to the trail which later became the Reisterstown Road.

Sometime prior to 1749, Sabret [1730], who was 19 or younger, and his two brothers, Christopher [1720] and Richard [1722], take the Great Valley (Shenandoah) Road to the Southside of Virginia. The three boys initially settle north of Goose Creek where they are on the 1749 - 1752 tax roll.

Sabret [1730] moves further south and surveys land in 1753 on the Blackwater River. He finds a wife, Mary Isom, and they have five known children: Isom [c.1753], Augustine [c.1755], Edward [c.1760], Sabret [1762], and Sabra [c.1765] probably all born on the Blackwater River property.

Sabret [1730] moves south again and surveys land in 1768 on the Pigg River in VA. He moves his young family to this farm/plantation. The Pigg River property is granted (deeded) in 1781 to Sabret [1730].

The 1790 and 1800 U.S. Census locates Sabret [1730] further south in Wilkes Co, NC. His son Sabret [1765] lives near by and has land on Warriors Creek (5 miles north of Lenoir, NC)

Sabret [1730] is reported to have died 19 Feb 1822 having lived near Shoat's Bridge on Lower Creek in Lenoir, NC.

"Thomas Jefferson Cole married Lucinda "Salina" Wilson on July 8, 1966 in Yell County Arkansas. To this marriage, there were nine "known" children born: Rufus Francis (1868), Mattie Refina (1869), James Gabriel (1871), John Newton (1873), Mary Jane (1874), Charles Sumner (1877), Seth J (1879), Blanche (1882), and Ruel (1882). All 9 of the children were born in and around Magazine, Yell County, Arkansas. Salina passed away on March 20, 1887 at the age of 42, and was buried in the Cole Family Cemetery near Chickalah and Ranger in Yell County on her Grandfather, Hiram Cole's farm.

Some time after Salina died in 1887, and before 1900, Thomas Jefferrson moved to Indian Territory in Oklahoma. Soon after that he moved to Graham, Young County, Texas. He died there in August 1915 at the age of 71. The only thing that we know about his burial is that his Texas Death Certificate states that his body was sent to Danville, Yell County, Arkansas for burial. After searching cemeteries in Yell County, and not finding a burial, I have made this memorial placing Thomas Jefferson Choate in the Cole Cemetery beside his wife Salina (and there are some unmarked graves there).

Pension Application Receipt #15187. On June 1833 Christopher of McNairy Co., TN age 83 declared that he was born January 1, 1750 in Bedford Co., VA. That he moved from there when very young before the Revolution to East Tennessee and from there to 96th District South Carolina. There he volunteered in 1781 in Capt. Sterling's Company; Colonel Cark's Regiment. On a five month tour of duty, he marched to Broad River, the dividing line between North and South Carolina where they joined General Sumpter. Marching towards the Congaree they were stopped by Tarlton's army and did battle with them at Shierie Ferry on Broad River. A small party of which Christopher was a part was ordered to search for General Tarleton. Under the command of Colonel Chandler, they traveled along the Charleston Road, capturing wagons and prisoners, until they finally engaged in battle at Black Stocks on Forque River. After they they marched to Packolet where Christopher was discharged as his tour of duty had ended. That same day he re enlisted, again under Captain Sterling and Colonel Clark. They marched with General Pickens Regiment to the 96th District of SC. There Christopher became a member of scouting party which watched and gave information about Tories and the British. He served nine or ten months before he was discharged. After the war Christopher said that he moved to Natchez on the Mississippi River for one year. From there he moved to Georgia for two years. From there he went to South Carolina for two years, and then to Davidson Co., TN until 1823 when he came to McNairy Co., TN.
Penison: September 11, 1833, McNairy County, Tenn Recieved $139.98 for Military service 1823-1833

Facts from his application for Revolutionary War Pension with notes by Irene Choate Williams.
1. He was born 1750 in Bedford Co., VA (Bedford Co. was formed 1753-54 from Albemarle and Lunenburg Cos.). There were 3 men in this area in that time period that could be the father of this Christopher. They were Sabret, Richard and Christopher.
2. Moved to East Tennessee when very young, before the Rev. War (The Choates moved into East TN 1773-75 and Christopher would have been at least 23 years old so he would not have been so young, but can we assume from this statement that he moved with his parents and therefore was not married at this time? We have no indication of Sabret ever being in East TN so can we then assume that he could not be father of this Christopher? Also Nadine and I proved to our satisfaction that Christopher had a son Christopher, Jr. born about 1750 so that would rule him out as the father of this Christopher so this would leave Richard as the father????)
3. Entered the service from the 96th district of SC in 1781.
4. Served about one year (this puts Christopher in SC in 1781).
5. After the War moved to Natchez, MS for about a year (This would put him in MS in 1783 and a deed in Washington Co., TN in 1783 states "...on the land next to land where Christopher now lives." and the land records of Washington Co., TN show the Christophers there from 1778-1784 so that would rule out the Revolutionary War Soldier as being the land owner in Washington Co., TN).
6. Moved to Georgia for about two years. (Since he is saying "about" we can say that he probably was in GA about 1784-85)
7. Moved back to South Carolina for two years. (SC records bear out the fact that he was in SC in July 1785 so it would seem his recollection of his movements were pretty good and this would have him leaving SC about 1787-88).
8. Moved to Davidson Co., TN until 1823. (This would mean he moved to Davidson Co., TN about 1788 and at that time Davidson Co. covered a large part of Middle TN, so it is hard to determine just what part of TN he came to from SC, it certainly would not be east TN)
9. In his final pension application he stated that he lived in McNairy Co., TN for twelve years. (This puts him there in 1825 and McNairy Co. was formed from Hardin Co., in 1823.) Before that he lived in Lawrence Co., TN.

"AUSTIN CHOATE, third son, last child of Solomon and Sarah, was born on his father's plantation near Reisterstown about 1775, about ten years after his next brother, Edward. As the son of a successful farmer, landowner and slaveholder, he was raised in above average circumstances.

In 1787 his father bought a tract of 260 acres, about two miles south of the village where John Reister had settled in 1757, which included a large brick house situated on a ridge that overlooked "the straight road to Reister's Town?. Into this house, later known as Cherry Hill, Solomon moved with his wife and sons Edward and Austin. At this time son Richard, his wife and four children lived on a small place nearby.

In December 1789 Edward married Elizabeth Dimmitt, daughter of William a substantial landowner, and moved to one of his farms. This left the father and his fourteen year old son, Austin, to operate a rather substantial farm. It is most likely that after Edward left, Richard and his family moved in with his parents and brother. The father probably was not very well at that time for he died in May 1791.

In his will, dated April 1, 1791, the father left to Richard, five shillings; to Edward; one hundred twenty-five pounds; to Austin and his mother, Sarah, jointly during her life time,"-- all of my negroes, stock of every kind, farm equipment, household and personal property, various tracts of land,----". Despite his half ownership of the property, Austin probably was not interested in farming nor likely very comfortable living in the house with his brother and wife and five small children. By the time Austin married in 1802 the number of children had increased to eight so he and his wife went to live in Reisterstown.

In 1803 his mother and brothers, Richard and Edward, signed the new articles of doctrine re-establishing the Harford Baptist Church near Jarrettsville but Austin did not join them. The mother apparently died early in the next, year for in 1804 he sold five tracts of land without his mother joining in the deeds. One of the tracts was Cherry Hill which he sold to his brother Richard for eight hundred dollars.

Austin died in late 1822 leaving a substantial estate. On May 30, 1823 a sale of his personalty, except negroes, was held by his administrators, Amy Choate, his wife, and John Ford, his father-in-law. On Mar.20, 1824 the negroes Charles, Jack, Jacob, Sidney and Harriette, were sold, the latter being bought by daughter Marian Choate. (See Index to acct. of Sales, Balto. Cty. , Micro 10,699 1780-1885, Bk.8-9, Micro CR9514, MHR)

On February 2, 1802 Austin Choate married Amy Ford, daughter of a neighbor John Ford. They lived near Reisterstown."

My Great Grandmother (Rebecca Elizabeth Bell Choat) and an uncle J B Choat are buried there in marked graves. My grand father took me to this cemetery when I was about 10 years old and told me all my Choat family is buried there.

The family was one of the earliest to settle in that area and as the father acquired more and more land and slaves its prominence also increased. Edward was raised in modest affluence. Since there were no schools in those days he was taught by such tutors as were available from time to time although his parents, members of the very conservative Primitive Baptist Church, probably did not look with favor with much book learning.

The parents were members of Harford Baptist Church neap Jarrettsville, founded in 1754 by a group who broke away from Sater's Baptist Church on Falls road, established in 1742 on land granted to Henry Sater by 5th Lord Baltimore to be used for church purposes "forever to the end of the world". After a number of years the Harford Church disbanded and the records were badly mutilated. In. order to re-establish the church, in 1803 new articles, of doctrine were drawn up and among the subscribers were the mother, Sarah, and her sons Richard and Edward Choate.

Edward took his religion seriously. By 1808 the elders of Harford Baptist Church made him a preaching elder and he was licensed as a minister by the Baltimore Baptist Association. He proceeded to organize Patapsco Baptist Church on Liberty road some one hundred yards from the west end of the bridge over the present Liberty Reservoir. In 1828 he established the Old School Baptist Church on Falls road at Black Rock and became its first minister. (For more information about his ministry and a list of his marriages, see History Trails, Vol.7, #1, Autumn 1972, pub. by Balto. Cty. Bist. Soc.)

Although he served four separate churches, known as independent "fellowships" or "associations", his ministry did not interfere with him becoming a very successful businessman and farmer. In fact he was often mentioned among the prominent local residents. In his will dated July 25, 1840 he left to his wife Elizabeth; negro woman Valettee, money due from her father?s estate, all specie in house including a note for two hundred dollars signed by Thomas D. Cockey and John Worthington, another note for one hundred fifty dollars signed by his son-in-law Philip Beckley, one third life interest in all real estate then to son Richard. To son Solomon: one hundred dollars. To his three daughters- Mary Basemen, Rebecca Beckley, Maria Odell - eight hundred dollars each. To son Richard: four negro men to be freed at times specified, real estate and residuary estate. The will was witnessed by Ellias Brown, William Chapman, and George E. Odell, my g.grandfather.

Edward's wife, Elizabeth, was the daughter of William Dimmitt of an early Maryland family. They were married December 12, 1789 by Rev. West. (Balto. Mar. Rec. #28, Wilkins File, MHS)

Both were buried in the church yard at Patapsco, now - 1979- converted to the residence of Miss Katherine Phillips"

"Edward Choate, younger of the two sons of the immigrant Christopher Choate, was born in Ann Arundel county about 1687, probably on the small, farm his father obtained in 1681 on the Magothy River, not far from Gibson Island. After the father died in 1692, the mother and two boys, and maybe a second husband, eventually moved to Baltimore county, not far Patapsco, the first Anglican Parish House in Maryland, located north; of the Patapsco River near the head of Colgate Creek. In 1706 both Edward and his brother Christopher are shown on Tax List 115, Upper Part North Side, Patapsco District. (See Wilkins File, MHS)

In 1718, when he was about twenty-nine years of age, Edward obtained a warrant for fifty acres of land and at the same time got an assignment for another fifty acres out of a tract of two hundred fifty held by Richard Gist. This tract of one hundred acres Edward named Choate's Delight. For reasons unclear, however, a patent was not granted until November 5th 1731 in which the tract is described as lying in Baltimore County "on the south end of a ridge and on the northeast side of a run descending into Jones Falls known by the name of North Run". (See Ld. Pat. Rec. Vol. PL#8, pp 255-56, MBR) The Baltimore Atlas of 1877 shows the location to be in the 3rd District about one half mile north of Stevenson.

During the period 1781-1731 Edward very likely was in possession of the property for it as around 1718 that he married Constant, last name unknown. About 1820 (1720) a son, Edward, Jr. was born. This marriage, however, apparently was not made in Heaven for in 1725 a notice was posted at the court house at Joppa Town as follows:

"Whereas on the of June 1725 My Wife Constant Choate did Absent herself from her home without leave consent or Knowledge. These are therefore to forwarn all Persons from Dealing or Contracting any Debts with Said Constant under the Penalty of Looseing" Such Debts given Under my hand this Day and Year abovesaid
Edward Choate
Received June the 20th. 1725
Recorded August the 27th. 1725 (See Lib. IS#H, f.133, Balto. Cty. Land Rec., MHR)
Whatever happened to the unconstant Constant is unknown.

Ten years later, on May 22nd. 1735, Edward married Elenore Savage in Old St. Paul's Church as recorded in the original register.(MHS) they became parents of one child; Solomon born about 1736. After Edward, Jr. was married about 1751, Solomon and his parents continue to live at Choate's Delight.
In 1742 St. Paul's established St. Thomas Chapel about a mile, from Choate's Delight "for the people of the wilderness". Wm. Hammond, Thos. and Nath'l Gist, Rich. Treadway and Edw. Choate were among the contributors. (Balto. Cty. Hist., MHS)"

"FLORA, second child of Richard and Jane Lowe Choate, was .born ca 1786 near Reisterstown. About December 14, 19OB, she married John Gill of Thomas (Balto. Cty. Marriage License #366). The designation ?of Thomas? means ?son of" and was frequently used in Maryland to distinguish those of the same name but of different fathers. The Gills were an old Maryland family and many of them lived in the vicinity of Reisterstown at that time. John Gill died sometime between 11/11/lB21 when he and his brother James gave first accounting of their father's estate (Balt.Cty.Adm.Accts.L.22l1820-23, f.325-26) and 2/17/1824 when Flora Gill, Adm. of John Gill, made first accounting of his estate, $728.54. Flora was made guardian of their two children, Owen A. Gill and Eleanor Jane Gill.
(Note: My mother, (1861-1957) recalled that Eleanor Gill was a beautiful woman, married Martin Gillett, a coffee, tea and spice importer of Baltimore; the first to sell tea in round tinfoil packages, called He-No Tea.

The newspaper account of her mother's death, July 30, 1855, age 92, states she resided with her son-in-law, James C. Conn, of Baltimore County. From this it would appear that Harriett was his wife. He was Postmaster at Owings Mill from 1833 to 1849."

"Richard Choate, first of three sons of Solomon and Sarah Choate, was born about 1761 (1759 on pg 10,25), probably at Choate's Delight, the 100 acre farm patented by-.Ms grandfather, Edward Choate, Sr. in 1718. This place was located in Baltimore county a mile or two east of the wagon trail to Pennsylvania (later to become the Reister Town road and in the vicinity of what is now the village of Stevenson. Little is known of his boyhood. The whole area was still very sparsely settled so he grew up much as a child of the wilderness. His family managed to survive the ups and downs of an unstable farm economy, and Richard succeeded in acquiring enough education to read and write and keep accounts, after a fashion.

By the time he was grown a whole system of wagon trails to the south enabled the family, by messages carried back and forth by travelers, to keep in infrequent touch with those members who had settled in Virginia, Carolina and Kentucky thirty to forty years before. This was an important development. (Bal. Mar. Rec. 222, MHS)

On August 4 (14th on pg 25), 1783, Richard married Ann Jane Lowe (daughter of a substantial planter who lived about three miles SW of the village of Reister Town. They probably went to live with her parents. By 1786 two daughters had been born, Sarah and Flora, and the family moved into a small house on ten acres of land, part of a large tract called Clark's Park, which Richard bought from Edward Parrish on June 26, 1786 (Balto. Cty. Land Rec. Lib. WG#Z, f.44, MHR)

The following year his father, Solomon, bought 260 acres and a large brick house close to Richard's place and moved there with his wife, Sarah, and two sons, Edward, aged 21 ,and Austin, aged 11-12. Several years later, in December 1789, Edward married Elizabeth Dimmitt and settled on one of the tracts of land owned by her father. In May 1791 Solomon Choate died, Richard promptly moved his family into the large house occupied by his mother and younger brother who had inherited the place jointly under Solomon?s will.

On February 11, 1796, Richard bought 202 acres from Daniel Bowley, which adjoined or was near the property owned by his mother and brother, Austin. On February 2, 1802, Austin married, Amy Ford, daughter of a neighbor, John Ford. The couple probably went to live with the Fords since by that time Richard and Jane had eight children ranging in age from one to eighteen which would crowd the most commodious house. In early October, 1803, the mother, Sarah, died, terminating her life interest and making Austin sole owner of the property in his father's estate. He apparently had no interest in farming, for a few days after his mother's death he sold his father,1 place to Richard on October 15,1803 for $800.00.(Balto. Cty. Land Rec Lib.WG#79,f.30,MHR)

The growth of Reister Town and Baltimore brought such an increase of traffic between them that the dirt wagon road was often impassable due to mudholes and ruts. By the year 1800 there was much agitation for its improvement, but it was not until 1806 that the county court agreed to an arrangement to provide convict labor, materials, and funds for the job. Richard Choate was appointed supervisor for one section for which he posted a bond for the faithful performance of his duties, dated October 9,1806,in the sum of $5000.00,with William Dimmitt, William Berryman, and John Hasselbach as sureties~ (Richard's brother,Edward,wa9 married to William Dimmitt?s daughter).

By deed dated August 12, 1812, Richard conveyed to his brother-in-law~ David Lowe, 125 acres of Clark's Park. Consideration not mentioned. (Balto. Cty. Land Rec. Lib.WG#120, f.321, MHR) About a year later, on November 29, 1813, Richard died. He is buried in the Lowe family burying ground off Delight road near the present Pikesville Shooting Range.

Richard apparently was ill for several years before his death his will, made six days before, states he is "sick and weak in body". The state had been making demand for an accounting for the funds advanced for the road but his records were so jumbled and incomplete it was impossible to determine what had been done with them. After his death it, was agreed that $1186.10 could not be accounted for but there was no cash available to reimburse the state. These were difficult times. The war of 1812-14 brought the British blockade of the bay and the attack on Washington and Baltimore leaving business man and farmer alike in dire straights. To protect its claim, the state entered suit against Jane Choate as executrix, each of the -, sureties, and all of the children as heirs, and requested the court to appoint a trustee to sell sufficient property to pay the debt, and costs. Since three of the children, Sarah Walker, Rebecca Gary, and, Ellender Kelley, were married and 1ived in Kentucky, the proceedings dragged on until they could return to Maryland to sign a waive: of their interests under the will of their father. Finally, Upton S. Heath was appointed trustee. The Federal gazette and Baltimore Advertiser, September 15, 1817, p.2, col.5, carries the following notice
IMPORTANT SALE - That old established tavern stand for many years occupied by Michael Grant, and later years by Richard Choate-- By virtue of decree --be sold--October 18 --- All that part of two tracts of land, situated in Baltimore County, called Soldiers Delight and Food Plenty, 14 miles from the city of Baltimore, containing about 94 acres , fronting three quarters of a mile on the Turnpike road leading from the city of Baltimore to Reisters Town, with the buildings and improvements, consisting of Tavern House, Stables, Sheds and Barn, sufficient to accommodate 100 horses; an orchard containing about 300 trees of the best fruit, a large proportion of which are red streaks, with various other fruit trees; the residue well proportioned for tillage and meadow, the whole well, watered and having a never failing stream running through the tract sufficient to turn a mill, and which can be brought; into the tavern yard at trifling expense --No place is better calculated to accommodate the traveler or to render the occupation] and enjoyment of the same convenient and agreeable.
Clark's Park--and--that well known and snug little Tavern Stand on the Liberty town road, containing Three acres.
U. S. Heath, Trustee

The legal proceedings involving Jane and the children terminated in 1818. (State of Md. vs. Jane Choate etal., Levy Ct. of Balto. Cty., Chancery, 1817, MHR) By that time, the six older children had married, three of the girls to men from Kentucky where they lived in Simpson county near what is now the town of Franklin along the Tennessee border. Shortly thereafter, Jane with son Herod, then about 22, and the four younger children started off to make a new life, in Kentucky. The 1820 census of Simpson county shows Herod Choate head of a household. ...

NOTE: The Trustee's notice of sale of the Tavern indicates Richard Choate merely "occupied" it suggesting a leasehold interest rather than ownership. It is doubtful that he ever actually operated it. The tract called Clark's Park and the little Tavern on Liberty Road, mentioned in the notice of sale, he did own."

"SOLOMON, only child of Edward Choate, Sr. and his second wife, Elenore Savage, was born about 1736 at Choate's Delight, his father's 100-acre place in Baltimore county near the present village of Stevenson. It was purchased in 1718 from Richard Gist and situated on the east side of a stream called North Run which joined Jones Falls and empted into the Patapsco about a mile from where Baltimore Town was laid out in 1729. (See Land Patent Rec.vol.PL#8, pp 255-56, MHR) Choate's Delight was in the sparsely settled interior about twelve miles from Colgate Creek and the Patapsco where his father had lived as a young man. In 1744 St. Pauls Episcopal Church in Baltimore established a chapel at Garrison called St. Thomas ?to serve the people of the wilderness.?

Little is known of Solomon's boyhood except that he was raised with his half brother, Edward, Jr. who was fifteen years older and the son of Constant, his father's first wife. They both survived a rigorous pioneer upbringing. After Edward, Jr. married and departed for Virginia in 1754, Solomon remained with his parents. They apparently died intestate leaving him sole heir.

About 1757 Solomon married Sarah (last name unknown), probably in the Primative or Particular Baptist Church at Winters Run near Jarrettsville (now in Harford county) which was established in 1754 by a group that seceded from Sater's Baptist Church on Falls Road, the first of that denomination in Maryland, 1742. They continued in the Baptist faith, particularly their son Edward, who became a minister.

The Revolutionary War was of immediate and pressing concern to those of the coastal areas but it had little direct affect on those living in the remote interior. Solomon, however, did pledge allegiance by taking the Oath of Fidelity in 1778. (See James Calhoun's Balto.Cty. returns, Hodges, Rev. Records, VI: 42) This qualifies his descendants for membership in DAR and SAR.

Solomon prospered. Like many planters of his time, he was interested in acquiring more land, especially near the growing village of Reister's Town. In twenty-five years from its settlement in 1759 it had a church, a tavern, a smithy, three or four stores, thirty or forty houses) and school. Of the several tracts of land he purchased the largest and most important was a tract of 260 acres, about two and one half miles south of Reister?s Town, for which on June 16th 1787, he agreed to pay Daniel Bowley, Richard Ridgely and William West, heirs of Thomas Harrison, dec., 50 shillings per acre. However, the actual contract of sale and bond guaranteeing conveyance of title was made to Richard Choate. Four days later, on June 20th.1787, he assigned to his father, Solomon, the bond executed by Daniel Bowley and Richard Ridgeley legally binding them to produce title to the property. A few days later William West, one of the Harrison heirs, died suddenly leaving a complicated legal, situation among his, heirs. As this legal tangle dragged on, Solomon died in May 1791 leaving all of his real estate to his wife, Sarah, and youngest son, Austin. Eventually Daniel Bowley acquired the interest of all the other heirs and on April 23, 1899, conveyed the property to Sarah Choate, wife, and Austin Choate, son, heirs under the will of Solomon Choate, dec., for 650 pounds. (Prov. Ct. Rec., Land, Lib. JG 5, ff 502-6, MHR)

With the purchase of the 260 acres Solomon acquired a long two storied brick house divided across by a center hall, as well as the usual out buildings, including a large spring house made of logs and plaster located at the foot of a slope near the house. The house itself was on a high ridge overlooking a meadow dotted with cherry and chestnut trees that swept down to the "streight road to Reister Town? which it bordered for over half a mile. He lived there from June/1787, to the time of his death in May 1791. In later years the place became known as Cherry Hill and the lane leading past it from the road is still called. Cherry Hill Lane.

In his will dated April 11, 1791, Solomon leaves to his eldest son, Richard, five shillings: to his second son, Edward, 125 pounds in full for his dower and services; to his wife Sarah and son Austin, all negroes, stock of every kind, farm utensils, kitchen and household furniture, etc. jointly, the two to live together and share equally the profits, and after her death everything to Austin including various tracts of land. The will was signed "his-O-mark and witnessed by Richard Clark, John Ford and Thomas Clark. The place of his burial is unknown."
