      The Gage family was connected to the Shipman & Burleson families thru marriage. All three families lived in Eastern North Carolina and can be found in the 1790 & 1800 census. Jeremiah Gage died in 1790 and left Lurettia (Lucy) Shipman Gage a widow. Her brother (Jacob Shipman) had a daughter who married James Burleson in 1791. James Burleson is well documented in his migration to Texas. A large group of Gage, Burleson & Shipman familes left North Carolina in 1807, including Lucy Gage and her family. . There was no land offices in this rural area and the government of North Carolina gave their land away as a bounty for soldiers of the Rev. War and sold the prime land. Many land titles had multiple claims so the government sold the land for $2 an acre for those who could pay. There is very little land records of that time for these families. At that time the government said there was free land in Kentucky & Tennessee which was still North Carolina Territory. Virginia also claimed this land. It was a common practice of the time for the government to offer free land so it could be settled and the Indian problem would be handled by settlers. Many of these family members married Indian women. Once the land was settled the government moved in and sold there land. For the next 20 years every where they settled the land was taken from them by the government.

      Early in the spring of 1807 they had settled in Lincoln county, Tennesse along the Elk River. A few years later, a treaty signed by Thomas Jefferson gave the land to the Chickisaw Indians and all white men had to move out. The settlers signed a petition (signed by Gage, Shipman & Burleson families) was sent to Washington City in 1810. Now, President James Madison, refused to sign it and they had to move. They moved into the new Mississppii Territory (now Northern Madison County, Alabama). Many of the Gage, Burleson,& Shipman men joined Andrew Jackson and fought in the War of 1812 and the Creek Indian War in 1813. By 1816 there land titles were not reconized and they were forced to move again. They moved across the Mississippi into Missouri Territory. By 1823 they moved back across the Mississippi River to Western Tipton County,Tennessee. By 1826 they had moved again to Hardeman County, Tennessee. Lucy (Shipman) Gage is found in the 1830 Census for Hardeman County, Tennessee. By 1830, sympathic to the order to move Indians West of the Mississippi River by Andrew Jackson these families settled in Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri. Many were now headed to Texas via the Natchez Trail and the Old San Antonio Road. These families settled in Bastrop County, near San Antonio. Several Gage family memebers moved thru Arkansas into North Texas. These families helped establish Texas into State Hood.
