My great great grandparents John S. Bettis and Elizabeth Jane Helm moved to Murray County and John is buried at the Varnell-Morris cemetery and some believe so is Lizzie, but her death certificate says she is buried in Carrell Cemetery, but I can't locate it.
Thanks to all the kind people I've met on my genealogy quest especially Boyd Treadwell, a true southern gentleman kind and lots of fun.

My family history goes back through Madison and Julius Bates. The father of General John, Julius, and Elizabeth was James. This was confirmed by a newspaper article of 1833 in which (General) John attempts to clear his father's name of being a Tory. Those who wrote attesting to his patriotism confirmed his name as "James".

Hello,
I am looking for information on David Bates and his family. He was married to Susan? and had the following children (proven by documentation I have) Chloe or Chloe Ann, Catherine (married Green Shropshire), James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson. He fought as a volunteer in the Georgia Militia and was wounded during the War of 1812. I cannot find any more information on his service in the war. His best friend, Anthony Adams, married Rutha Rutledge in Georgia. David and Anthony, along with their families, moved to Autauga County Alabama. His service in the War of 1812 is documented in the 1911 Census of Confederate veterans in Arkansas provided by his grandson, James Madison Bates. Anyone able to help me out with this. Some other names of note are Powell, Hughs, Dodson, Hurst, Wyatt, and Poole. Thanks!

My son Julius’ birthday is on April 21st and even though he’ll only be turning 5, I’d like him to remember the day as much as possible.

Thank you all for making this possible!

When I was not wise enough to listen well or make serious notations, I heard mention that some of the family joined the Army especially to escort the westward movement of native americans on "The Trail of Tears", saying they did this to protect family, who were some of those being marched. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

I found a post suggesting Julius father was William James Bates 1725 no spouse listed.

Actually as I look deeper I get conflicting informion.
F: General John Bates 1756 – 1851
M: Nancy McDonald
or
F: James Arthur Bates 1755 – 1800
M: Susannah Fleming
or
F: James Bates 1755 – 1805
M: Elizabeth

All of these have Julius married Temperence West married 1802 -1804.
So maybe I'm of no help at all!?

Major General John Bates was the grandfather of Louisa Wacosy Bates who married Captain WH Hendren. I am researching the Hendren line. Do you know if Barbary Crenshaw was Cherokee? If so, was there any proof of that? I am asking because Captain Hendren served in the Cherokee unit of the Civil War and I am trying to find out why.

Hello. I am descended from Julius R. Bates and Lydia Hulsey through their daughter Barbara (Barbary). She married John W. Stinson (1824 South Carolina - 1896 Centre, Alabama). Their daughter Lydia Ann Stinson (1851-1925) married my great-great grandfather, Little Berry Stephens (1845-1930), a Confederate veteran, in 1874. Their son Julius Norman Stephens married Beulah Vesta Hoge. Their daughter Barbara married Beulah's brother, William F. Hoge. Two other daughters, Irene and Fannie, died young.

John and Barbara Stinson's other children include Mary (1852-?), Julius W. (1853-?), John Thomas (Tom) (1858-?), Elizabeth (Lizzie) (1861-?), Benson Lother (Luther?) (1863-1938), William P. (1867-?), and Hattie M. (1871-?). You may find this information and more, including a picture of John and Barbara outside their house in Stinsonville (now part of Centre), in "The Heritage of Cherokee County, Alabama," ISBN 1891647105.

My great great grandfather was Joseph Bates born in Alabama in 1805. He served as a representative in the Alabama Legislature in 1829,1836,1837, and 1840. He took part in the seminole ware of 1835 and became a major general of the Alabama militia. He moved to Galveston Texas in 1845, was elected as mayor 3 years later. He was appointed U.S. Marshal for the eastern district of Texas from 1850 to 1853. I believe both of his parents were from South Carolina but I haven't been able to find any information. I would appreciate any help you could give me.

My line (that I know of) starts at John Bates b1805 SC married Frances? To Washington Hall Bates b1830 GA m Irenna Wheatley in AL. Henry Bates, James Alonzo Bates, Archie, Jerry, then me.
Through DNA, we have a "probably related" match to Julius Bates. We also have matches to a William Bates family b1802 in SC. Also a "probably related" to Robert Bates in CT.

I can't find either families any further back than these two. I have found where William had a brother Dennis but nothing further.

Are there any ideas where our lines might cross? The name James seems very common through the naming of the children in both families. So I don't know if that might be any help at all.

Thanks for the work you've done on the Bates family and any help that could come from this on my line.

Thanks so much for this site, and thanks to everyone who's weighing in to help others.

Regarding Julius and Temperance West Bates's son John W. Bates, born in 1805: One researcher believes that John's middle name was Witt. Does it make sense that it could have been West?

Does anyone know whom he married? In a previous post, I outlined my mystery: My great-great-grandmother was Lizzie Bates, born in 1847 in Georgia. She had two brothers, Mack (McAfee) and Newton (possibly short for William Newton), and a sister, Fannie, possibly a nickname for Harriet. Both parents died when the children were young. (John W. Bates died in 1849; Lizzie was 2.)

The children were sent to live with various relatives. The 1850 census shows McAfee age 8 and Harriet age 6 living with Julius and Temperance; William Newton age 11 is living with the William Head family. I cannot find Lizzie in 1850, but in 1860, she's age 13, living with the William Head family. Lizzie married James Cornelius Hardy. She died in 1875.

In family letters (my grandmother and great-grandmother were trying to sort this out too!) William Head was referred to as Uncle Billie, which makes me think that Lizzie's mother was Uncle Billie's sister, a Head.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

To whom it may concern:
There is a reference to a Walnut Forks Baptist Church Cemetery in Jefferson, GA.

That is entirely wrong.

I live 2 miles from the cemetery. It is 1 mile west of GA 124 on GA 60 in Hoschton, Jackson Co., GA. I also know a few of the residents of the cemetery and most of the famililes of loved ones buried there.

Jefferson Co. is in lower middle Georgia. Jefferson GA is in Jackson Co. GA but about 12 miles NE of the church.

Your site is beautiful and you have done some nice work.

Thank you for being in genealogy.

With some blind luck, I stumbled across the websites below, describing the genealogy of the Winifred Bates Cain family.

Let me introduce myself:

I am Buford Cain Alexander (b. 1949), of Washington, DC, son of
Ella Marie Cain (1919-1991) and Urey Woodson Alexander, of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, daughter of
Buford B Cain (1887-1943) and Ada Strayhorn of Hopkins County, Texas, son of
John William Cain (1853-1927) and Amanda Jane Shoemaker of Winnsboro, Wood County, Texas, son of
Julius Pickney Cain (1826-1919) and Elizabeth Ara Smith, of Cartwright, Wood County, Texas, son of
Robert Craven Cain (1799-1878) and Winifred C. Bates, of Catoosa County, Georgia, son of
John W. Cain and Sally Unknown of Ireland

Until seeing these websites, we really didn't know anything about the Cain's beyond "John William Cain of Winnsboro" (above).

First, I would like to thank all involved in putting the information and these websites together! And I read that our thanks go especially to Richard Bates, who I understand passed away this past December. Our sympathies to his family - he has done us all a great service.

The story of the Cain brothers (evidently twins - Julius and John) sounds quite interesting. First, their lineage to Julius and Temperance Bates. Second, their service in the Confederate Army in Company B of the 6th Georgia State Guards - which I take to be Company B (Lookout Dragoons, formed in Dade County, Georgia), 6th Georgia Volunteer Infantry. Their service in Jackson's Corps through the battles of Fredericksburg, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Cold Harbor, to name but a few, is impressive - and especially that they both lived through it!

If any of you pick up on this email, and can comment of the following questions, I would much appreciate it:

1. Do we know anything more about when and why John W. Cain came to America from Ireland?

2. Is my understanding of Julius and John's Confederate Army experience correct?

3. Do we know when and why Julius and his younger brother James left Georgia for Winnsboro, Texas? Was it related to the Civil War (or rather War Between the States)?

Basically, we are trying to understand more about the Cain's.

Thanks very much,

Buford

Does anyone know of a John W Bates who may have married a Susan Head in Hall County? They both died young, perhaps around 1865, leaving 4 children: Newton, Mack, Fannie and Lizzie Bates. The children were split up and went to live with relatives. Lizzie (my g-great grandmother) lived with the William Head family; Uncle Billie could have been her mother's brother. During the war, Lizzie went to live with the Hardie family and eventually married James Cornelius Hardie (b. 1847), some time around 1872. Lizzie may have been born in 1849; died in 1875. My grandmother thought that Lizzie's grandparents were Julius and Temperance, who did have one son, John W, born 1805, but I can't find any information about his wife and family.

Please also add the address, lashelle.fisher@comcast.net, on any message to me.
James Shockley Bates, b 1810, South Carolina, d 1882/1884, Georgia, is my 3rd great grandfather, but I do not know the name of his parents. His first wife was a Forrester (possibly Lydia). Their first son was named Samuel Allen which could be a clue. What happened to his son, my 2nd great grandfather, William E.F. Bates, b 1833, Georgia, is also a mystery. Unknown is the date of death of Sarah "Sary" Coker Bates (wife of William E.F. Bates), after I found her in 1860, Elbert County, Georgia, with her son, two year old, William Bates, living with the family of Asa Coker (her father?). William Webster Bates, my great grand father, was reportedly raised by his father's sister, Mrs Sarah Adeline Bates Cheek. Since my mother's mother was the daughter of William Webster Bates, DNA does not help me.
I enjoyed reading your page about the Bates. I wonder if I am related.
Thank you.
Regards,
LaShelle

My GGGGgrandfather was John A Bates - he married Elizabeth Alford in Greene County Georgia on 26 Nov 1818. He was born in Virginia about 1794 and died in Coffee County Tennessee in Sep of 1868. Elizbeth Alford died within a few years of marriage to John and he remarried Elizabeth Davis about 1824. We have no record of where the marriage occurred.

Many of his descendants move to Izard County after the Civil War.

Via DNA comparison we know that this Bates lineage connects to John Bates who emmigrated from England to Jamestown Virginia in 1623.

I'm always interested in learning more and connecting with anyone who might have knowledge of this family.

Hi-Just found the site. My mother is a Bates and had a cousin Nancy. May or may not have been a name passed down from your Nancy. My mother and her family were from the Calhoun County Alabama area- Piedmont, Nancy's Creek. Her grandfather was Walter Bates. We have Cherokee within our family also. Thought this may help. I would be happy to ask my mother for anymore information if you'd like.

Just came across this site and info. It is a gold mine on my research of the Bates family. We only had info back to Rice Ross Bates. There is also some confusion of his wife Jane and there seem to be two set of children?
My fiance's Mother (Mary Conway{Connie}Stanford Bates, passed away at the age of 95 just 2 yrs ago. She had a mind like a tack and remembered a lot of history. In all the bible records I have retrived and talked to her about, she never mentioned a John Bates cemetary and was not sure of Rice's parents. Thanks for this Gold Mine of info and if I can share anything with you let me know.
Thanks for all your work.

I am the the great granddaughter of William D. Stinson, born 1867 in Alabama. I believe he is the son of John Stinson and Barbary (Barbara) Bates. The birthdate matches him and there are common names associated with John and Barbary' families and my Stinson family. He moved to Suwannee County, FL and married Malinda Jones in 1887. My William died in 1938.
Does anyone have any information about William Stinson that might help verify if my great grandfather is the son of John and Barbary (Bates) Stinson? Thank you for any help that can be given.

I have accidently found your web site and I am very intrested in it. In my great-great-grandfather and gggrandmother,Elizabeth Fowler's household was a Sarah Bates and I tend to believe that she was related to Elizabeth, both I don't know. Elizabeth and Aaron were married in Pendlenton, SC and moved to Forsyth County, Ga with their family. Aaron only showed up in the 1840 census and he died during the Florida Indian war. I have no idea where he is buried but Elizabeth is in the Fowler cemetery beside lake Lanier, along with my ggrandfather William and Rachel Fowler. I was told by their grandson who was 92 that Rachel was one half Cherokee Indian. That I have not been able to prove. If anyone has any information concering this, please e-mail me. I am not presently at home and able to put this site in my favorite place but I hope to find it when I get home. Thank you so much for having a site with a lot of information.

I have accidently found your web site and I am interested in the Bates family also. There was a Sara Bates that lived in the household of William Fowler. Willam was the son of Arron and Elizabeth Fowler who were married in Pendlenton, SC. I have not been able to find out infromation on Sarah. She was in the Forsyth County, GA census and I am wondering if she is not Elizabeths family. I am not at my present home now or I could give you dates. I only found Sarah once and she disappeared. I know where Elizabeth is buried in Forsyth County. Please e-mail me if any one has infromation.

Lovely site! Well done!

On 7/17/2003, Missy wrote in the guestbook that "Isabella McCleskey" shows up in 2 land records in the 96th Dist of SC. I think that she is a different woman than the Issabelle/Isabel/Isabelle J McCleskey who bought land with Julius Bates in GA.

A James Bates appears on the 1790 Greenville, SC census with 2 males under 16 and 3 females on the same page as Benjamin and David Huddleston, ancestors of mine. It's a small world!

Wish that I could shed more light on the relationship between Isabelle and Julius. Her sons did not marry Bates women. Was she his aunt? It's certainly a mystery.

Great website! I found a tidbit of information you might fing useful. Isabella McCleskey is listed in two of the land records index on the SC Archive pages. As it's just index, I'm not sure as to the context of the reference but can guess that she owns land adj to the primary.

19 Nov 1784 William Hutton, 145 acres Long Cane Creek and
the Savannah River, 96th District. Indexed names:
William Hutton, Patrick Calhoun, Esther Wilson, Samuel
Carson, Mary Wilson, George Green, Isabella McCleskey

16 Jul 1785 James Allen, 83 acres Bear Garden Creek, 96th
District. Indexed names: James Allen, Patrick Calhoun,
Robert Allen, Jane Cunningham, Esther Wilson, Isabella
McCleskey, Elizabeth Gardner

There are probably several sections of the Bates Family that take exception to the title when it on refers to a single Bates line within the Georgia area. My forefather also came out of South Carolina probably before General John and his family did and settled in the Then Fayette County (now Spalding County) and later a large number moved from Vaughn, Ga to Abbeville, Al where some of them continued Noth and others went south into Florida (my ancestors). There are also other Bates lines, at least six that we know of, that traversed South Carolina to Georgia and all during the approximate time period of the land lotteries. Even saying that, this is still a good site for information that I can discount in my family line. che-ers

Please disregard my previous comment (6/29/2002). since that time I have discovered, by talking with my father, that John C. Bates immigrated from England to South Caroline. He also confirmed that the initial we are using is just family (my line) lore and where it is actual or not is not known at this time. I also have a cousin, Linda Thompson Bates, who is researching her Thompson line and it looks like she may have discovered a connection with John Witt Bates who was a son of General John's brother Julius after she confirmed his middle name was Witt through records in Georgia over the summer. Her husband is a direct relative of mine from a different son of John C.. If anyone comes across a Bates, particularly in the southern Georga area, would appreciate hearing about the information. thanks and che-ers

I am a gggrand-son of Nathaniel Bates who married Lou Dykes in Pulaski, County, Georgia(now Bleckley CO) on 24 October 1833. Information found in the 1850 census for Pulaski County gives Virginia as his birth place. So far, I have been unable to prove or disprove this. The 1840 census for Twiggs County, Georgia shows him living next door to Robert Bates. (They may have been living at the same location in 1840 and in 1850 because of some question as to the exact location of the line between the two Cocnties) Letters of administration were granted to a Mr_______Sheppard for the estate of Reuben Bates Who died in 1835 in Pulaski County. I have not been able to establish any relation between Nathaniel and Robert or any relation between them and Reuben. I interested in establishing contact with anyone who may have have any information that will help find parents of Nathaniel Bates. Thanks!!!! Herbert Davis

I have some confusion with grandmother Laura Phagan(Fagan) as grandmother, but also name of Chambers? I know my mother used to communicate with "Chambers" in North Carolina, but only a memory. Do you have a "Chambers" listed as a family member?

I am son of Eva Ivis Bates b Sept 11 1902 in Dodge Co Ga. She is daughter of John Thomas Bates and Ida Yearty. John Thomas Bates, b abt 1873 in Laurens or Pulaski co Ga., is son of Robert Nathaniel Bates, who was born in Pulaski Co Ga(now Bleckley Co)in 1846. Robert Nathaniel is son of Nathaniel Bates And Lou Dykes who were married 24 Oct 24, 1833 in Pulaski Co Ga. According to 1840 census records, they were living next door to Robert Bates, in Twiggs Co Ga. The 1850 census records put them back in Pulaski Co Ga and lists his birth place as Virginia. There was a Reubin Bates who died in Pulaski Co Ga about 1835, howerer I have not been able establish any connection. Any information or help of any nature will be greatly appreciated.

Bates (my great great grand father) who immigrated to South Caroline between 1800 and 1808 (suspected only.) If anyone has any info would appreciate hearing from you.

Howdy yall. And yes I can sound like that when I have spent a little time back in my native Florida where I was born and raised but have not live there much for the last forty years. I have been doing a considerable amount of web crawling and have so far come accross three lines of the Bates family that came from South Carolina into Georga. I have only one of the connected back into Virginia then to England (Lydd, Kent Shire, England) but in looking at a map of that area I have discovered that there may have been several different, non-related families that were using the surname BATE in the 1300-1500 period in just this area. I think I will stick to the U.S. side of things for now justg try to fill in the blank that I have. (I have over 4000 names to be entered into Gene databases so far and only have two lines represented.) I will be looking for help in filling in some of those blanks, particularly in the Griffin, Ga., Blakely, Ga., and Dothan, Al. areas since that the the primary route my grandfather traveled on his way down to altoona, Fl where he lived out the rest of his life before dying at 94 in 1983. I have a previous note that give his name so if anyone has any BATES infor for the areas of interest, let me know and will compare what I have to what you have them maybe we can link or something. che-ers

I am fairly sure you are a relative since my grandfather, Raymond Harvey Bates, was born in Griffin Ga. He moved to several places including Blakely and Dothan, Al before moving to Altoona, Fl where almost all his nine children were born and raised. I have, so far, about 900 lines in a spreadsheet which starts with John (Thomas) Bate in England in 1380 however there are two places of contention I am working on though the practicallity of how I have the lines decending seem feasable. Right now, I am working on the last confirmed ancestor, John C. Bates, who was born in SC (probably Pendleton District) between 1780 and 1803 though I am convenced from other entries I have come across from other families it was much closed to 1780. Good hunting. che-ers
