  • Notes 
    • Marmaduke lived in Newberry from 1812 to 1828. In 1814, he made 2 land purchases. The first is was on Jan. 29, 1814. "Hardy Fluker (Edgefield Dist) to Marmeduke Coate (Newberry Dist); for $90 sold 200 ac; border: Venable's Crossroads, John Burnet, Cart Road Br, George Rowlan, School House Br, and Leonard Cardin; part of 890 ac survey Jan. 21, 1793 for Leonard Cardin. Witness Henry Coate and Joel Bell. Signed Hardy Fluker. Wit. oath Jun. 17, 1815 (Newberry Dist) Joel Bell to Y. J. Harrington JQ. Rec. Jul. 2, 1819." (now a part of Spartanburg Co., SC) (Pruitt's book.) He purchased land from Henry and Mary Coate in Newberry Village on Oct. 1, 1814. (C-912) He married, Mary Coate, d. of James and Elizabeth Scott Coate abt. 1816 according to the Annals of Newberry. Collins lists them as cousins, but this is not known to be true if she is the daughter of James and Elizabeth Scott Coates as verified in James Coate's will dated 1817.

      By the year 1820, he and Mary had had two children, a boy and a girl. In that year he lived in Newberry Co., SC in the U.S. census records. He was listed at age 26 to 45 and Mary was listed at age 16-26. (C-1570)

      He was an administrator of a will for William Coate in 1823 in Newberry. This William's relationship to Marmaduke has not been ascertained but could be quite significant. William had two children of adult age, so he was probably married before 1800 and born before 1780. William's wife, Mary, was his executor. This is likely the William that lived right next to Marmaduke in the 1820 census in Newberry Co., SC. He was older than Marmaduke, as he and his wife were above age 45 at the time, but his youngest children were between the ages of 10 and 16. (C-598b, 1570)

      Marmaduke was a surveyor. His detailed surveys of Newberry, Lexington, and Richland in 1820 are in Mill's Atlas. He was hired to survey the state of Alabama which is where he and his family moved to live about 1829. Nicknamed Duke, he was a very personable, humorous man. This led him to make friends with many an idle companion and drink too much. The Annals of Newberry state "No more honest and good-hearted man ever (was) an inhabitant of Newberry." (C-1074)

      In the 1850 census, he was listed at age 60 and Nancy was listed as age 68, b. SC. He was living alone in the 1860 U.S. Census for Clarke Co, Alabama. He is missing from futher census records. (C-1438, )

      His name is sometimes listed as Livingston Marmaduke Coate. (C-1618) According to Pope's histories, Marmaduke was a Dunker. The Dunker MM was somewhere between Bush River and the town of Newberry on Palmetto Creek.
