Marriage: September 13, 1866Patrick Co., VA

It looks like Susan and Thomas had ten kids. http://person.ancestry.com/tree/44727970/person/6947203157/facts
The story of the courtship and marriage of Susan Yates has been handed down through her family, and the account below is from a grandson, Lloyd E. Collins of Westfield, North Carolina. "At the conclusion of the War Between the States when the surrender occured, thousands of soldiers had only one way to travel to their homes and that way was by foot. Thomas Pigg had made friends with and buddied with two Yates brothers, and they started to their homes from near Washingto, D. C. When the three reached the Yeates Brothers' home in Patrick County, Thomas Pigg decided to spend awhile with his two friends. "The Yeates brothers had a seventeen year old sister (actually about 23 years) who was very beautiful and nice in every respect. Her name was Susan and she and Thomas Pigg fell in love. Thomas asked the parents of Susan for her hand in marriage but they refused due to the fact that Thomas Pigg was a poor young man and was a member of a big poor farm family. However, his was a good honest Christian family. The Yeates family were Aristocrats and considered Thomas Pigg beneath their family socially. "Thomas and Susan eloped and came to Patrick County, Virginia and purchased a farm on Little Dan River near the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the area where Thomas Pigg grew up. (Thomas Pigg was the son of Paul Pigg who had twelve children.) Thomas and Susan had eleven children and their original farm is now owned by James Heath in the Cladville, Virginia section. "Susan's father finally forgave Susan and accepted Thomas, but her mother resented the marriage so strongly that she never forgave either." Robert S.R. Yates, A History of John Yeardley Yates
