North Carolina, USA
|Death: ||Feb., 1843|
Walter Wingate was the son of Edward Wingate, Jr. and his wife Sarah Council. Walter married Mary Potter, daughter of Samuel and Ann Potter of Brunswick County near Lockwoods Folly Plantation. Walter managed and lived on another of his father;s plantations in the Waccamaw District, North Carolina. He provided food and supplies for the militia of American Revolutionary War hero, Francis Marion.
Edward willed the plantation at Lockwoods Folly to Walter, and Walter lived there for a few years including the 1802 time period that Edward Taylor Wingate was born. By 1810 Walter relocated his family to Darlington District, South Carolina. In 1820 the family was living in Monroe County, Alabama. It was there Edward Taylor Wingate would leave home and move westward to Mississippi. It was also there that son-in-law Joseph Taylor gambled away the title to Walter's lands and property. By 1840, now economically ruined, Walter was located in Hancock Mississippi to live with his wife's family. It is here that Walter died of yellow fever in February 1843. Walter Wingate is described by his granddaughter, Emma Louise Taylor Bibb, as "a good and worthy man of remarkable, natural abilities of wonderful memory."
