1. William Bates, son of Mary, was born about 1640 in England and died on 8 Nov 1700 in Newton Township, Gloucester County, Provice Of West Jersey about age 60.

General Notes: In 1670, William lived in the County of Wickloe, Ireland, where his occupation was that of a carpenter. He had earlier come from England, and was a devout Quaker. The County town, which has the same name, is situated on the coast of the Irish Sea about thirty miles south of the city of Dublin, at which place considerable trade is carried on with other parts of Great Britain. Here, also, courts were held for that district, here may be found the common jail for the security and punishment of offenders within its limits. King Henry VIII established the state Anglican Church and many dissenting groups developed, such as Puritans, Presbyterians, Pilgrims and Society of Friends (Quakers). In this and in previous years , Parliament passed acts to prevent and suppress conventicles within the kingdom. These acts were made especially oppressive toward the Quakers, and under them many outrages were committed upon their persons and property. If the policy of the government, the administration of its laws and the condition of its people, be any evidence of the progress of civilization , then England stood in no enviable light, during the few years before and after the date above named, in respect to religious toleration within her borders. Loathsome prisons crowded to suffocation, courts busy with the trials of unoffending citizens, and arrogant officials robbing the people of their hard earnings to sustain a volumptuous and wicked clergy, are dark spots scattered through the history of a nation that boasts of the rights of her citizens . During these days a meeting of the religious Society of Friends was held at the house of Thomas Trafford, in the town of Wickloe, at which place William Bates was a regular attendant. Neither the small number assembled there, nor the sanctity of a private residence, saved them from annoyance by the soldiery, for they were soon dragged to the jail, and there confined for several weeks, away from their homes and families. At the next session they were in dicted (charges may have been their refusal to give bond or pay a tithe to the Church of England), and upon refusing to enter into bonds for their subsequent appearance at court, were sent immediately to prison. (From "Sufferings of the People called Quakers", Vol. II, page 479 , those seized were Christopher Hammond, Doty Rose, William Bates, John Hunter, John Eves, Martin Lost, Thomas Marlow, John Tomy, Dennis Rochford, Richard Skinner, Daniel Sharp, Humphrey Blithe, John Rumby, James Brathall, John Lively, Thomas Eves, Katherine Evans and Mary Ganes.) No regard was paid to sex or condition in life while under confinement, and so obnoxious were the dampness and foul air, in which they were forced to exist, that many died and the greater number suffered in health. In 1671, a declaration suspending the penal laws in ecclesiastical matters was signed by Charles Second, at the time, King. This was a great relief to this class of citizens, but, on account of jealousy towards the Papists, the declaration was withdrawn the next year, and Friends again felt the displeasure of those in authority. About this time, Oliver Cromwell took over the English Government and professed religious tolerance-with exception of the Quakers. Laboring under these disabilities, it was most natural that all such as sympathized with George Fox and his doctrines, should seek a new country where toleration, to a degree at least, existed, and where they could enjoy their religious opinions in quiet. During these persecutions the settlement of the land in America was much talked of, and some few colonies had been successful in getting a foot hold, and had sent back to their friends in England flattering accounts of the country and climate. In the adjustment of the trouble between Edward Byllynge and John Ferwick, the attention of William Penn and other prominent men in the Society of Friends, was attracted to the territory, through which the river Delaware flows, and very soon the initiatory steps were taken to secure a title for the same, and which was desirable to have the right of government to follow in the same channel. The books of record of that date are full of the deeds made from Byllynge and his trustees to persons wishing to get away from the abuses that surrounded them, and to remove to a wild and unknown land, rather than to remain. Among these is a deed, dated April 12, 1677, from William Penn and others to Robert Turner, linen draper of Dublin; Thomas Thackara, stuff weaver of Dublin; William Bates, carpenter, of the county of Wickloe; and Joseph Slight, tanner, of Dublin, for one whole share, (or "one full equal and undivided ninetieth part") of property in West New Jersey. Touching William Bates, it is very safe to say tha this conclusions in regard to this step were reached in the common jail at Wickloe, where many dreary days were passed while his family was suffering at home. However vague and indistinct his ideas of the rights of person were, in the form of government under which he lived, or how much such rights could be abused by authority of law, we cannot at this time judge; but as we suppose that they had come to be practical questions with him, placed beyond discussion and without chance of amendment. The decision to remove to New Jersey was made under much deliberation, and after considerable inquiry in regard to locality, since it was important that the colonists should be near each other for fear of the Indians. The deed shows the place of residence and the occupation of each grantee, and doubtless is a faithful record of these facts at the time therein named, which, taken in connection with the memorial left by Thomas Sharp, shows conclusively who were the persons that originated the settlement at Newton. Mark Newbie became a subsequent owner, while Thomas Sharp and George Goldsmith representing interests of others, which six persons were the founders of that settlement. During the four years that elapsed between the date of the deed and their coming, Joseph Slight disposed of his interest, and Rober Turner, having acquired a large amount of property in Pennsylvania, turned his attention to that in preference to his West Jersey estate, and did not be come a direct partner in this enterprise. It is readily seen that Robert Turner was the merchant through whom Robert Zane and Thomas Thackara disposed of their manufactured goods , and that their business relations brought them frequently together, whereby the partnership here presented was created. Although the county of Wickloe is some distance south of the city of Dublin, William Bates had business and religious intercourse with Robert Turner, and was influenced by him to be a participant in this novel and important movement. Of all the callings, his was likely to be the most useful, and his services to be the most in demand , when once they had arrived at their place of destination, for the first thing to be done wa s to provide some kind of shelter for their families. On September 19, 1681, William Bates, with his family and the others of the party, arrived in the new world in "Ye Owners Adventure", a pink Vessel with a narrow stern, commanded by the first mate John Dagger. After a long passage consuming the whole of two months, the party anchored at the mouth of the Delaware River and soon decided to locate at a point later known as Newton's Creek. Newton Creek forms the south border of South Camden, N.J. It was originally in Gloucester County, which was subsequently divided and is now in Camden County. The shelters were in the shape of rude huts made of poles, placed partly in the hillside, and covered with skins of animals or the bark of trees. Without any other floor than the earth, with no windows, a stick chimney and a single apartment, it needs no sketch of fancy to see how inconvenient and uncomfortable the habitations of these first comers must have been. On March 10, 1685, (being the time of the survey made for the other partners on the north side of the middle branch of Newton Creek), for some unexplained reason, William Bates took his two hundred and fifty acres on the south side of the same stream, opposite the upper end of that tract, and there he built his house. (The land is bounded on the northwest by Newton Creek and on the northeast by the present White Horse Pike. On the southeast side, Black Horse Pike runs through the former holdings of William. The town of Audubon is immediately southeast of the land.) Two years later, he purchased another 250 acres from Robert Turner adjoining the first tract, and made other purchases which extended his estate from the Graysbury line to William Albertson's boundry . Much of this is included in the farms now owned by Jeremiah Ridgway and the heirs of Joseph Eldridge, deceased. His habitation stood by the creek, just below the mouth of Bates' run , and near the house on the Ridgway farm. In common, however, with the other owners, he had an interest in the meadow land at the mouth of Kaighn's run, whence he obtained the hay for his cattle for the winter months, a necessary provision, as no other means of sustaining their stock was obtainable at that early day. As the master mechanic, there can be no doubt who planned and built the first meeting house at Newton in 1684; who constructed the rude seats and erected the plain unpretending galleries, in which sat the forefathers of this people, who were faithfully carrying out the belief and the form of religious worship as brought with them across the sea. (In the office of The Camden County Historical Society, Euclid Avenue and Park Boulevard, Camden, is a bench quite similar to those constructed by William for use in that first church.) In 1683. William was one of the representatives from the Irish tenth in the Legislature of the Province, and was the same year appointed constable. The next year, he was again returned as a member, and was appointed one of the commissioners for laying out highways, which last office he held for two years. That he was a useful man, both as a mechanic and a private citizen, is evident, and in each position he commanded the respect of those around him. He died in the year 1700, leaving a will, now on file in the office of the Secretary of State, but never placed on record. His children were born in Ireland, some of whom were married in a few years after their arrival here. They were Jeremiah, who married Mary, daughter of Samuel and Esther (Tilton) Spicer; Joseph, who married Mercy Clement in 1701; Abigail, who married Joshua Frame in 1687; William, who married an Indian girl; and Sarah, who married Simeon Ellis in 1692. Jeremiah settled on part of the original tract , as conveyed to him in 1693 by his father, who occupied it as a farmer. Although his father left a will, the records say he died intestate as to another part of his real estate, of which Jeremiah, as the oldest son, became seized. This last named tract was given by Jeremiah Bates in his will to his son, William, who re-surveyed it in 1731. William lived there at this time. Source of above: O.D. Bates 1977.

The name BATES might have been spelled BATE in some records.

Sarah married Simeon Ellis, son of Thomas Ellis and Unknown, on 16 Jun 1692 in Wickloe, Wickoe County, Ireland.

General Notes: Sarah's husband Simeon, was a large land owner--a property that extended along both sides of the Haddonfield Road and would have included today's Garden State race track. An article by O'Keefe, based on Clement, gives and informative and amusing account of the activities of Simeon, their son, as a member of the Quarter Sessions Court--known as being a "Peace Officer." Squire Ellis ran a Solomon-like, rather than a legalistic, type of court. He often held court and dispensed justice on the spot--such as twenty stinging lashes for stealing a chicken. The austere Quaker had rigid restrictions on pleasure giving activities. Their rules for conduction courtships and the often resulting marriages were rigorously enforced. Squire Ellis frequently presided at these simple, nuptial ceremonies. On occasion, following these, there was a release of social inhibitions and the Quakers indulged in a lively two or three day hard cider singing, dancing party. Then back to Austerity.

34. Thomas Bates was born about 1705 in Waterford, Gloucester County, New Jersey and died in 1784 in Waterford, Gloucester County, New Jersey about age 79.

General Notes: Thomas Bates inherited all of his father's estate, with minor exceptions, and lived in the family home all of his life, about eighty years.
By the first quarter of the eighteenth century, the rough land was becoming "tamed": property was generally fenced, Indian trails had become roads, and new roads were built connecting the small settlements. Thomas, like some other members of his generation, reaped the benefits of the efforts and deprivations of his immediate ancestors. Life became comparatively easy, homes more comfortable, produce more plentiful. Some, including Thomas, purchased slaves to help relieve the drudgery of their plantations. In many ways the customs of the Virginians and the Carolinians were followed. In West Jersey, however, instead of a tobacco economy, it was largely one of general farming and lumbering. Saw mills and grist mills were built on suitable streams in order to utilize the natural resources of the locale. Rude furniture, as well as house and farm implements, were manufactured on the spot. Helped by an obliging climate, these families enjoyed a somewhat primitive, but good and plentiful, mode of living. Some historians refer to the propertied families of this West Jersey area and time as a "landed aristocracy." The Quakers, had long since earned a reputation a hoses but shrewd traders and businessmen and were by no means adverse to enjoying the advantages that their thrift and industry had brought them.
If can be safely assumed that Thomas led an active, family oriented life. His children took care to identify themselves as sons and daughters of Thomas Bates. A niece, Ann, stated in her marriage papers that Thomas was her uncle. His son, Joseph, and his grandson, Josiah, referred back to him in their property deeds. Also, there is a confusing frequency of admiration for him. In his will, Thomas carefully provided not only for his son, but for his daughters and minor grandchildren as well. This was an exception to the rule in those days. At best, the daughters, usually received only some household equipment. His 1780 tax rateable was 373-100-0 the figures refer, of course, to pounds-shillings-pence and, taken with his large land holdings, reveal Thomas as a well to do man.
Thomas, surely, must represent the acme of economic and social living for this branch of the New Jersey Bates family. This standard was result of the particular time span of his live, the inherited accumulation and his predecessor's efforts, and his own careful stewardship. He was a family man and devout Quaker. This study indicates that he was a pleasing and well loved patriarch

While a young lad Joseph showed a passion for the sea with an intense desire to one day be a sailor. His mother did her best to dissuade him, but, she finally consented to a short trip with his uncle to Boston. The purpose of this trip was, of course, to cure him of his infatuation. However, equally obvious, it had the opposite effect. In June of 1807 Joseph embarked on his first cross-Atlantic voyage as a cabin boy. Through his years as a cabin boy he encountered many intense moments, such as falling overboard in shark infested waters, and his ship becoming trapped in an island of ice. Shortly after escaping the ice, two rather suspicious vessels attempted to cut them off from shore, they soon proved to be Danish privateers. The ship was captured and taken to Copenhagen. This ship had a previous rendezvous with the British and, since Napoleon Bonaparte was at war with the British and in control of Denmark, the entire crew was required to testify as to the nature of their voyage. Because of the true testimony the sailors gave, they were spared; however, their ship, cargo and wages were confiscated, they were even stripped of their clothes. Joseph did obtain a berth on a Danish ship bound for Prussia, thankfully before a Danish winter set in. The return of this ship went Ireland instead of Denmark and it was here Joseph left the ship to seek passage to America. He made it as far as Liverpool, here he encountered a "press-gang." An officer and twelve men entered his boarding house and asked his citizenship, on his proud exclamation of "American" he was forced to join the British navy. This all happened on April 27, 1810.

While impressed in the British navy Joseph made many attempts to escape. Each time he was caught he always protested that he was an American and not a subject of King George. He was eventually stationed on "Rodney 74". Here his attempts to leave His Majesty's service were looked on as a severe crime by his commanding officer; many and harsh were the punishments Joseph faced. HMS Rodney was destined to join the British squadron in the Gulf of Lyons, in the Mediterranean sea. Along the way they stopped at Cadiz, Spain. The soldiers of Napoleon Bonaparte were bombarding the city and the ships in the harbor, many of which had escaped from the Battle of Trafalger under the command of Lord Nelson in 1805. Here Joseph was chosen to help refit the ship named Apollo, the refitting was forced to be completed at Gibraltar by excess winds. Unfortunately after the refitting Joseph was taken back to the Rodney. After spending the winter with the British squadron off the Isle of Minorca, Joseph was again transferred, this time to HMS Swiftsure. Shortly after Swiftshore left for her station in Toulon, a friend of Joseph's father arrived looking for him. Joseph had no contact with his family for nearly three years; many of the letters he tried to write home were destroyed, yet, before the war one did reach his father. This friend went to the Rodney and was there kept busy until one of Joseph's friends told him of the transfer. Apparently this friend did catch up to Joseph but when the captain learned of his identity the Captain hid Joseph. By this time the War of 1812 had begun and Joseph was stuck. During one of the preparations for battle Joseph and a few other Americans demanded that they should be considered prisoners of war and would therefore not fire on their countrymen. After eight months on board the Swiftshore as prisoners they were transferred to a prison ship about 70 miles from London.

Later in the War, Joseph was transferred to Dartmoor Prison. He was present during the Massacre of American prisoners on April 6, 1815, but he survived to see the end of the war and was safely returned home. Later in life Joseph Bates become captain of his own ship and a devoted Christian. He became one of the key founders of the Seventh-day Adventist church. During his life as a sailor he came to believe very strongly in several basic Adventist beliefs. While he was impressed he became disturbed by the way the sailors (regardless of their religion) were forced to go to Anglican services; later in life he became adamant that the separation of church and state should be upheld. In his every day life as a sailor he noticed the intemperance of the sailors and the resulting side effects. Many of these problems came from poor rations but many more were the result of overindulgence by the men. He became one of the champions of health reform; abstaining from all alcohol, tobacco and caffeine, even becoming a vegetarian.

40. Thomas Bates was born about 1705 in Waterford, Gloucester County, New Jersey and died in 1784 in Waterford, Gloucester County, New Jersey about age 79.

General Notes: Thomas Bates inherited all of his father's estate, with minor exceptions, and lived in the family home all of his life, about eighty years.
By the first quarter of the eighteenth century, the rough land was becoming "tamed": property was generally fenced, Indian trails had become roads, and new roads were built connecting the small settlements. Thomas, like some other members of his generation, reaped the benefits of the efforts and deprivations of his immediate ancestors. Life became comparatively easy, homes more comfortable, produce more plentiful. Some, including Thomas, purchased slaves to help relieve the drudgery of their plantations. In many ways the customs of the Virginians and the Carolinians were followed. In West Jersey, however, instead of a tobacco economy, it was largely one of general farming and lumbering. Saw mills and grist mills were built on suitable streams in order to utilize the natural resources of the locale. Rude furniture, as well as house and farm implements, were manufactured on the spot. Helped by an obliging climate, these families enjoyed a somewhat primitive, but good and plentiful, mode of living. Some historians refer to the propertied families of this West Jersey area and time as a "landed aristocracy." The Quakers, had long since earned a reputation a hoses but shrewd traders and businessmen and were by no means adverse to enjoying the advantages that their thrift and industry had brought them.
If can be safely assumed that Thomas led an active, family oriented life. His children took care to identify themselves as sons and daughters of Thomas Bates. A niece, Ann, stated in her marriage papers that Thomas was her uncle. His son, Joseph, and his grandson, Josiah, referred back to him in their property deeds. Also, there is a confusing frequency of admiration for him. In his will, Thomas carefully provided not only for his son, but for his daughters and minor grandchildren as well. This was an exception to the rule in those days. At best, the daughters, usually received only some household equipment. His 1780 tax rateable was 373-100-0 the figures refer, of course, to pounds-shillings-pence and, taken with his large land holdings, reveal Thomas as a well to do man.
Thomas, surely, must represent the acme of economic and social living for this branch of the New Jersey Bates family. This standard was result of the particular time span of his live, the inherited accumulation and his predecessor's efforts, and his own careful stewardship. He was a family man and devout Quaker. This study indicates that he was a pleasing and well loved patriarch

While a young lad Joseph showed a passion for the sea with an intense desire to one day be a sailor. His mother did her best to dissuade him, but, she finally consented to a short trip with his uncle to Boston. The purpose of this trip was, of course, to cure him of his infatuation. However, equally obvious, it had the opposite effect. In June of 1807 Joseph embarked on his first cross-Atlantic voyage as a cabin boy. Through his years as a cabin boy he encountered many intense moments, such as falling overboard in shark infested waters, and his ship becoming trapped in an island of ice. Shortly after escaping the ice, two rather suspicious vessels attempted to cut them off from shore, they soon proved to be Danish privateers. The ship was captured and taken to Copenhagen. This ship had a previous rendezvous with the British and, since Napoleon Bonaparte was at war with the British and in control of Denmark, the entire crew was required to testify as to the nature of their voyage. Because of the true testimony the sailors gave, they were spared; however, their ship, cargo and wages were confiscated, they were even stripped of their clothes. Joseph did obtain a berth on a Danish ship bound for Prussia, thankfully before a Danish winter set in. The return of this ship went Ireland instead of Denmark and it was here Joseph left the ship to seek passage to America. He made it as far as Liverpool, here he encountered a "press-gang." An officer and twelve men entered his boarding house and asked his citizenship, on his proud exclamation of "American" he was forced to join the British navy. This all happened on April 27, 1810.

While impressed in the British navy Joseph made many attempts to escape. Each time he was caught he always protested that he was an American and not a subject of King George. He was eventually stationed on "Rodney 74". Here his attempts to leave His Majesty's service were looked on as a severe crime by his commanding officer; many and harsh were the punishments Joseph faced. HMS Rodney was destined to join the British squadron in the Gulf of Lyons, in the Mediterranean sea. Along the way they stopped at Cadiz, Spain. The soldiers of Napoleon Bonaparte were bombarding the city and the ships in the harbor, many of which had escaped from the Battle of Trafalger under the command of Lord Nelson in 1805. Here Joseph was chosen to help refit the ship named Apollo, the refitting was forced to be completed at Gibraltar by excess winds. Unfortunately after the refitting Joseph was taken back to the Rodney. After spending the winter with the British squadron off the Isle of Minorca, Joseph was again transferred, this time to HMS Swiftsure. Shortly after Swiftshore left for her station in Toulon, a friend of Joseph's father arrived looking for him. Joseph had no contact with his family for nearly three years; many of the letters he tried to write home were destroyed, yet, before the war one did reach his father. This friend went to the Rodney and was there kept busy until one of Joseph's friends told him of the transfer. Apparently this friend did catch up to Joseph but when the captain learned of his identity the Captain hid Joseph. By this time the War of 1812 had begun and Joseph was stuck. During one of the preparations for battle Joseph and a few other Americans demanded that they should be considered prisoners of war and would therefore not fire on their countrymen. After eight months on board the Swiftshore as prisoners they were transferred to a prison ship about 70 miles from London.

Later in the War, Joseph was transferred to Dartmoor Prison. He was present during the Massacre of American prisoners on April 6, 1815, but he survived to see the end of the war and was safely returned home. Later in life Joseph Bates become captain of his own ship and a devoted Christian. He became one of the key founders of the Seventh-day Adventist church. During his life as a sailor he came to believe very strongly in several basic Adventist beliefs. While he was impressed he became disturbed by the way the sailors (regardless of their religion) were forced to go to Anglican services; later in life he became adamant that the separation of church and state should be upheld. In his every day life as a sailor he noticed the intemperance of the sailors and the resulting side effects. Many of these problems came from poor rations but many more were the result of overindulgence by the men. He became one of the champions of health reform; abstaining from all alcohol, tobacco and caffeine, even becoming a vegetarian.

That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers and served as herein stated to wit: that in April 1777, he volunteered in Capt. Henry Knocks company of Virginia Militia as a Private, Robert Benham being Lieutenant of said Company. That he marched from the neighborhood of Catfish Camp (now Washington, PA) where he then resided, to the head of Wheeling Creek where he joined the said Capt. Enocks who marched his company to Grave Creek fort (where Major David Rogers commanded) that after they had garrisoned Grave Creek Fort about two months, Capt. Enocks company was ordered to march to Wheeling Fort which they accordingly did. That after evacuation of Grave Creek Fort while this declarant was stationed in Wheeling, a party of men under Capt. Foreman were surprised and almost cut-off by the Indians at Grave Creek narrows. whilst declarant was stationed in wheeling fort, he was dispatched with an express to Colonel Evans on the Monongala- hela near where Geneva now stands to obtain reinforcements as he believes that he started in the night and only two or three men could be permitted to accompany him and they but a few miles. That upon declarants return he was informed that the Indians had invisted the fort in great numbers during his absence, that before the garrison were aware of the strength of the enemy a party of men under Capt. Mason went out to oppose them and fell into an ambuscade and were almost all killed, Mason himself lay wounded and concealed in a patch of Brier until the siege was over (the same Capt. Mason became a robber afterwards and infested the canebreaks on the Mississippi and the roads from Natches to Nashville). Declarant recollects that the appearance of things about Wheeling was entirely changed upon his return, the Indians having killed nearly all the horned cattle and smaller stock and carried off the horses. Declarant remembers seeing cows that had been woulded by Indian arrows which had pierced through their entrails, yet they recovered. Declarant remembers Col. Zane, Col. Vanswearingen, Col. Shepherd and Major McCullough, who were militia officers, no regular troops being in the country then. Carfish Camp and Wheeling were then in the District West of Augusta in Virginia. That he continued in the service six months and received a discharge from Capt. Enocks which he lost, he has therefore no documentary evidence and knows no person who can testify to this term of service. That on or about the first of June 1778, his place of residence being the same as formerly, to wit near Catfish Camp, he was drafted and entered the service as a searjeant in Capt. Cross's company of Virginia Militia. Said Company marched to the Ohio River about one days march above the mouth of Big Beaver and joined Col. Broadhead who commanded five hundred regulars. Col. Braodhead immediately crossed his forces over the river and marched down to the mouth of Big Beaver and joined General Mackintosh. Declarant was then detailed into the artificers company as a butcher and in which capacity he continued to serve until the end of the campaign. General washington's forces erected Fort Mackintosh at the mouth of Big Beaver and garrisoned it a short time. They then took up the line of march from said fort to the Tuscarawas River, leaving a garrison in Fort Mackintosh. On the second day of their march they found the dead body of Lieut. Parks of the regular force, he having been shot. About a mile further they found the dead body of David Ross (he having been shot) together with about forty pounds of beef which the declarant, had been ordered to issue to some friendly Indians before leaving Fort Mackintosh, suspicion attached to said Indians. That after six days march they arrived at a point on the Tuscarawas River where they build Fort Lawrence. The declarant remembers a misunderstanding which took place between General Mackintosh and his son, Major Mackintosh while they remained at Fort Lawrence, which terminated very whicsically. Whilst the army remained at Fort Lawrence a difficulty arose in procuring hogs-heads in which to salt beef. Declarant told Col. Crawford that he could save the beef by salting it in a log cabin lined with three or four thicknesses of beef hides. The officers concurred in the plan which was executed by him accordingly and declarant believes the meat was all preserved. Also during their stay at Fort Lawrence a militia company mutineyed and marched out of the fort to return home. General Mackintosh dispatched Capt. Ferrel with his company to compel them to return which he effected after the mutineers had marched about a mile. In the month of December (same year) General Mackintosh left a garrison in Fort Lawrence under the command of Major Gibson and marched his army back to Fort Mackintosh, when the applicant was discharged, in the last of December, having served six months. The army on this return march suffered so much for the want of provisions that the men were compelled to eat the hides of cattle which had been butchered as they went out. The declarant has lost his discharge, has no documentary evidence but can procure witnesses of his service.
To the questions directed to be propounded by the war Department, the declarant made the following answers:
1. I was born in Morristown, New Jersey on the 24th day of May 1743.
2. I have a record of my age in a book at home here.
3. At each time when called into service I was living near Catfish Camp, then in the units of Virginia. I lived there till l797, I then removed to the flats of Grave Creek, Ohio Co., VA, staid six months, then removed to Belmont Co. Ohio, now in Union Twp., Monroe Co., Ohio.
4. The first time I volunteered, and the last I was drafted.
5. I remember Col. Broadhead, General Mackintosh and his son, Major Mackintosh and Capt. Ferrel. Col. Broadhead commanded 500 regulars in the Tuscarawas campaign.
6. I received a discharge from Capt. Enocks at the end of the first tour and I received one at the end of the second tour, but cannot remember the officer who signed it. Both are long since lost.
7. State the names of some persons to whom you are known in your neighborhood and who can testify as to your character for veracity and their belief of your services as a soldier of the Revolution.
Answer: Andrew Millslager, Daniel Petty, Dr. McGeary, Elisha Enocks and Job Gorby.

Joseph Bates (Adventist)
Joseph Bates )July 8, 1792-March 19, 1872) was an American seaman and revivalist minister. he was the founder and developer of Sabbatarian Adventism, a strain of religious thinking that evolved in the Seveth-day Adventist Church. Bates is also credited with convincing James White and Ellen G. White of the validity of the seventh -day Sabboth.

Joseph Bates was born in Rochester, Massachusetts on July 8, 1792. (He did not have a middle name) His father, also named Joseph, was a volunteer in the Revolutionary War and his mother was the daughter of Barnabas Nye of Sandwich, Massachusetts. In 1793, Bates; family moved to the part of New Bedford, Massachusetts that would become the township of Fairhaven in 1812. In June 1807, Bates sailed as a cabin boy on the new ship commanded by Elias Terry, called the Fanny to London via New York City. This was the commencement of Bates sailing career.

In 1810 Bates was forced into servitude for the British navy and spent time as a prisoner during the War of 1812. After his release he continued his career eventually becoming captain of a ship. During one of his voyages he read a copy of a Bible that his wife packed for him. He experienced conversion and became involved in a variety of reform including helping to found an early temperanace society. Bates became disturbed by the way the sailors (regardless of their religion) were forced to go to Anglican services; later in life he became adamant that the separation of church and state should be upheld. He also was a strong supporter of abolition. In his everyday life as a sailor he noticed the intemperancae of the sailors and the resulting side effects. Many of these problems came from poor rations but many more were the result of overindulgence by the men. He became one of the champions of health reform/ abstaining from all alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine, even becoming a vegetarian. In 1839 he accepted the treachings of William Miller that Jesus was coming soon.
After October 22, 1844 like many other Millerites, Bates sought meaning out of the Great---- Disappointment. During the spring of 1845 Bates accepted the seventh-day Sabboth after reading a pamphlet by T.M. Preble. Bates soon became known as the "apostle of the Sabboth" and wrote several booklets on the topic. One of the first, published in 1846, was entitled The Seventh Day Sabboth, a Perpetual Sign. One of Bates' most significant contribution was his ability to connect theologically the Sabbath with a unique understanding of the heavenly sanctuary. This apocalyptic understanding of theology would become known as the great Controversy themne.

Joseph Bates was a strong supporter of James White and the prophetic gift, which he believed was manifested in visions received by the young Ellen G. White. He contributed to early publications such as, A Word to the Little Flock. Bates was active with the Whites in participating in a series of Bible Conferences held in 1848 to 1850 that have become known as the Sabbath and Sanctuary Conferences. During the 1850s Bates supported the develoopment of more formal church organizzation that culminated in 1863 with the formation of the Seventy-day Adventist Church.

Joseph Bates died on March 19, 1872 in Battle Creek, Michigan and is buried in Poplar Hill Cemetery in Monteerey, Michigan




By deed on March 2, 1801, he received from his father, Joseph, 28 acres prevously conveyed to Samuel, probably his deceased son, and more acres. This also was part of Joseph's inheritance.

My honored father (Joseph) and his forefathers were for many years residents in the town of Wareham, Plymouth County, State of Massachusetts. My mother was the daughter of Mr. Barnabas Nye, of the town of Sandwich, Barnstable County, both towns but a few hours' ride from the noted landing-place of the Pilgrim Fathers.

My father was a volunteer in the Revolutionary War, and continued in the service of his country during its seven years' struggle. When Gen. Lafayette revisited the United States in 1825, among the many who were pressing to shake hands with him at his reception rooms in the city of Boston was my father. As he approached, the General recognized him, and grasped his hand, saying, "How do you do, my old friend, Captain Bates?" "Do you remember him?" was asked. His answer was something like the following: "Certainly; he was under my immediate command in the American army."

After the war, my father married and settled in Rochester, an adjoining town, in Plymouth County, where I was born, July , 1792. In the early part of 1793 we moved to New Bedford, some seven miles distant, where my father entered into commercial business.

During the war with England, in 1812, the town of New Bedford was divided, and the eastern part was called Fairhaven. This was ever afterward my place of residence until I moved my family to Michigan, in May, 1858.

In my school-boy days my most ardent desire was to become a sailor. I used to think how gratified I should be if I could only get on board a ship that was going on a voyage of discovery round the world. I wanted to see how it looked on the opposite side. Whenever I thought of asking my father's consent to let me go to sea, my courage failed me for fear he would say, No. When I would endeavor to unburden my mind to my mother she would try to dissuade me, and recommend some other occupation, till at last I was permitted to go a short trip with my uncle to Boston, etc., to cure me; but this had the opposite effect. They then complied with my wishes.

A new ship called the Fanny, of New Bedford, Elias Terry, commander, was about to sail for Europe, and he agreed with my father to take me on the voyage as cabin boy.

In June, 1807, we sailed from New Bedford to take our cargo on board at New York City, for London, England. On our passage to New York City we sailed by the way of Long Island Sound. In this route, several miles from the city, is a very narrow and dangerous passage, bounded with rocks on the right, and a rock-bound shore on the left, called "Hurl Gate." What makes it so dangerous is the great rush of water that passes through this narrow channel. As the tide ebbs and flows each way, it rushes with such impetuosity that few dare venture to sail through against it without a strong, steady wind in their favor. For want of watchfulness and care, many vessels have been whirled from their course by this rushing foam and hurled against the rocks, wrecked and lost in a few moments of time. Sailors call it "Hell Gate."

As our gallant ship was bringing us in sight of this dreadful place, the pilot took the helm, and requested the captain to call all hands on deck. He then stationed us in various parts of the ship, for the purpose of managing the sails in case of an emergency, according to his judgment. He then requested us to remain silent while passing this dangerous gateway, that we might the better understand his orders. In this way, every man and boy at his post, with eyes silently fixed on the pilot, waiting his orders, our good ship winged her way through the hurling foam, and passed on safely to her anchorage before the city.

The experienced and thorough knowledge of our pilot, in guiding our gallant ship safely through that dangerous gateway, with the stillness and breathless attention of her crew, were stamped deeply in my mind. Promptness and exertion in perilous times on the ocean, has, with the blessing of God, saved thousands of souls from a watery grave.

Our good ship was deeply laden with choice wheat, in bulk, even into her hatchways. It was feared that she would sink under her heavy burden. On the eve of our departure, Mr. S. Eldridge, then our chief mate, was coming on board the ship in the dark night with a lighted lantern in his hand, when he fell from the plank into the river, between the ship and the wharf, where the tide was running from three to five miles an hour. Mr. Adams threw a coil of rope under the wharf at a venture; fortunately he caught it, and after some struggle he was hauled up on the ship's deck. When he began to breathe freely, he lamented the loss of the new lantern. Said Mr. A., "Why, you have got it in your hand." If it had been a cannon ball it would most likely have carried him to the bottom, for drowning persons hold on with a deadly grasp to whatever is in their hands.

We had a pleasant run across the Atlantic Ocean. In our passage up the British Channel, between France and England, we discovered a number of kegs floating on the top of the sea. The maintop-sail was laid to mast, and a boat lowered with a crew, which soon returned to the ship deeply laden with gin and brandy. The duties on such articles are so high, from France to England, that smugglers can afford to lose a whole cargo sometimes, and yet make their business profitable. But if they are caught by their revenue cutters, or war ships, while thus defrauding their government in her revenue laws, the penalty about ruins them for life. They sling and fasten them with ropes and buoys, so that by diligently hunting for them, they find them again after their pursuers are out of sight.

On our safe arrival in the London dock, the English officers who came to inspect our cargo, on opening the hatches, expressed their surprise to see the clean and dry wheat, up into the hatchway, as fresh as when we left New York. When we hauled out of the dock into the river Thames, and commenced filling our water casks for our homeward voyage with the river water that was passing us, finding its way to the great ocean, I thought, how could a person drink such filthy water. Streaks of green, yellow, and red muddy water, mixed up with the filth of thousands of shipping, and the scum and filth of a great portion of the city of London. After a few days it becomes settled and clear, unless it is stirred up from the bottom of the water casks. Some four years after this, I being then an impressed seaman in the British service attached to the Rodney, 74 gun ship, in the Mediterranean Sea, as we were emptying out our old stock of fresh water, we found the ground tier full of the same river water from the Thames, only a little further down from London, which had been bunged up tight for about two years. On starting the bung and applying our lighted candle, it would blaze up a foot high, like the burning of strong brandy. Before stirring it up from the bottom, some of the clear water was exhibited among the officers in glass tumblers, and pronounced to be the purest and best of water, only about two years from London. I admit that it looked clear and tasted good, but from my former knowledge of its origin, I confess I would a little rather quench my thirst from some of the pure springs from the Green Mountains of Vermont, or the granite hills in New Hampshire.

Among our passengers to New York was a Mr. Lloyd, chief mate of a Philadelphia ship that was detained in London. He, in a serious manner, related a very singular incident that occurred some few years previous, while he was a sailor from Philadelphia. He said that he never had dared to tell his mother or sisters of it. I will try to relate it in his own words. Said he, "I was lodging away from home one night in another part of the city, when the house was beset by the police. For fear of being identified with those that were disturbing the peace, I fled from my bed into the street with nothing but my night-dress on, and finally secreted myself in the market-place, while a friend that was with me went back to obtain my clothes. About midnight a gang of men, passing through the marketplace, discovered me, and after a few inquiries as to who I was, they said, 'Drive this fellow on before us.' My pleading was in vain; they continued to keep me before them until we entered the cemetery, about two miles out of the city. We here came to a large flat stone with an iron hook in it. They placed a stout rope in the hook, which they brought with them, with which they swayed the stone up. This opened a family vault where a Jewish lady of distinction had been deposited that day. The jewelry upon her person was what they were after. The exciting question now was, who among them would go down into the vault and get the jewels. Said one, 'Here is the fellow.' I begged and entreated them for the Lord's sake not to require me to commit such a dreadful deed. My entreaties were disregarded; they crowded me down into the vault, ordering me to go and strip off her jewels. I tried, and then returned to the open place, and stated that her fingers were so swollen that I could not get her rings off. 'Here is a knife,' said one, 'take it and cut her fingers off.' I began to plead again, but they gave me to understand that there was no alternative; I must either do it or stay where I was. Almost dead with fear, I laid hold of her hands and cut her fingers off, and when I came to the open place, they bade me hand them up. As soon as they got hold of them, they dashed down the slab and immediately ran away.

"I felt overwhelmed at my hopeless condition, doomed to die a most horrible death, and fearing every moment that the mangled corpse would lay hold of me. I listened to the rumbling sound of these robbers, until all was silent as death. The stone over me, I could not move. After a little I heard a distant rumbling of the ground, which continued to increase until I heard strange voices over the vault. I soon learned that this was another gang, most likely unknown to the first, and they were placing their rope to swing up the same stone slab. I at once decided what to do to save myself. As the slab came up, I leaped out of the vault in my white night-dress, or shirt. Horror-stricken, they all fled back toward the city, running with such speed that it was difficult for me to keep up behind them, and yet I feared if they should stop, I should be discovered and taken. Before reaching the city, I had drawn up some nearer to the two hinder ones, when one of them cried out to his companion, 'Patrick! Patrick! the old woman is close to our heels!' Onward they raced through the market and fled away from me, for I stopped here to hide myself. After a while my friend, having obtained my clothes, found me, and I returned home."

Before sailing on our voyage, a good-looking man, about twenty years of age, came on board, stating that he had come from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to get a passage to London. He stated that he had no means nor way to pay his passage. He also stated that his only object in going to L. was to obtain a certain book (the title I have forgotten), which could not be obtained at any other place. He finally shipped for a green or new hand before the mast.

This was rather new among sailors, for a man, having no desire to be a sailor, to be willing to endure the hardships of a seven months' voyage, with no other object but to get one book, and no certainty about that.

But on our arrival in London the captain advanced him some money, and before night he returned from the city rejoicing that he had found the book. I have often regretted that our acquaintance ended with that voyage; for I have often thought, if his life was spared, he was destined to occupy some important position among men.

On recovering from my sea-sickness, I commenced my sea journal, to keep the run of the ship and the daily occurrences of the voyage. This and other journals which I afterward endeavored to keep, would have been of much value to me when I commenced this work, but they were all used up or destroyed, after my last voyage.

One circumstance occurred on our homeward voyage, some eighteen days after departing from Land's End, England, which I will here relate:

In the morning (Sunday) a large shark was following us. A large piece of meat was fastened to a rope and thrown over the stern to tempt him to come up a little nearer, that we might fasten to him with a barbed iron made for such purposes; but no inducement of ours seemed to affect him. He maintained his position, where he could grasp whatever fell from either side of the ship.

On such occasions the old stories about sharks are revived--how they swallow sailors alive, and at other times bite them in two, and swallow them at two mouthfuls. They hear so much about them that they attribute more to their sagacity than really belongs to them. It is said that sharks have followed vessels on the ocean for many days when there were any sick on board, that they might satiate their voracious appetites on the dead bodies cast into the sea. Sailors are generally brave and fearless men; they dare meet their fellows in almost any conflict, and brave the raging storms of the sea; but the idea of being swallowed alive, or even when dead, by these voracious creatures, often causes their stout hearts to tremble. Still they are often credulous and superstitious.

Toward the evening of the day referred to, when we had ceased our fruitless labors to draw the shark away from his determined position astern of the ship, I ascended to the main-topgallant mast-head, to ascertain if there was any vessel in sight, or anything to be seen but sky and water. On my way down, having reached about fifty feet from the deck, and sixty from the water, I missed reaching the place which I designed grasping with my hand, and fell backward, striking a rope in my fall, which prevented my being dashed upon the deck, but whirled me into the sea. As I came up on the top of the waves, struggling and panting for breath, I saw at a glance that the ship, my only hope, was passing onward beyond my reach. With the incumbrance of my thick, heavy clothing, I exerted all my strength to follow. I saw that the captain, officers, and crew had rushed toward the ship's stern. The first officer hurled a coil of rope with all his strength, the end of which I caught with my hand. He cried out, "Hold on!" I did so until they hauled me through the sea to the ship, and set my feet upon the deck.

To the question if I was hurt, I answered, "No." Said another, "Where is the shark?" I began to tremble even as they had done, while they were in anxious suspense, fearing he would grasp me every moment. The thought of the shark had never entered my mind while I was in the water. I then crossed over to the other side of the ship, and, behold, he was quietly gliding along his way with us, not far from the side of the vessel, seemingly unconscious of our gaze. And we did not disturb him in any way; for the sailors and passengers were all so glad that the cabin-boy was rescued, not only from a watery grave, but from his ferocious jaws, that they had no disposition to trouble him. He was soon missing, and we saw him no more. But the wonder to all was, how he came to change his position to a place where he could neither see nor hear what was transpiring on the other side or at the stern of the ship.

Joseph married Prudence M Nye on 15 Feb 1818. Prudence was born in 1793, died in 1870 at age 77, and was buried in Popular Hill Cemetery, Monterey, Allegan County, Michigan.

86. Josiah Bates was born from 1775 to 1776 in Waterford, Gloucester County, New Jersey and died on 25 Jul 1825 in Clark County, Ohio at age 50.

General Notes: The 145 year old pattern was broken when Josiah moved to Ohio in 1816. His reasons for this surprising step are not clear. It is true that his father, Joseph, had divided the family plantation, in 1801, by deeds to his four sons. This acreage had been passed down, father to eldest son, since it acquistition by William in 1687. Josiah, who was the administrator of his father's estate, receive 100 acres. Also, following the War of 1812, a severe economic depression set in, lasting for over a decade. This resulted in a loss of confidence in the issued currencies, with constent trade difficulties. However, subsiquent events indicate that Josiah, though short on ready cash a times, was economically comfortably situated.
It is apparent that he and Pricilla had been planning a move for several years. Josiah sold his inherited land in 1806, less than year after his father died. He then purchased about 200 acres from the estate of Isaac Borton. February 1, 1809. In September of that same year he deeded some acres to Benjamin Cooper and 46 acres to Henry Cooper. Both were minors and sons of Priscilla by her first marriage to John Cooper, as stated in the deeds. Finally, in 1813, he sold 99 acres to William Hopkins and some acres to Henry Hurf. This left him with no land holdings. Priscilla's name on the deed of Jan 1, 1813, so she died between then and June 1814, the date of Josiah's marriage to Elizabeth Weeks.
In April of 1816 the Josiah Bates family began the long perilous trip to Ohio. The Cumberland Trail, also called the National Road was started in 1811. This led out of Baltimore to Cumberland and then on to Wheeling Virginia (now West Virginia). By 1816 this was a fairly well established and safe route. However, from Wheeling west, it was unfinished and hazardous. Almost surely, leaving from South Jersey, this was the route west.
Arriving in Ohio, the settled in Green County. There Josiah held the title to 200 acres. It appears that his land was given or sold to his son Samuel and Josiah. In 1820, Joseph bought 250 acres in Green Township, Clark County, Ohio, and remainded there until his death in 1852. "History of Clark County, Ohio, "(Beers) mentions that Josiah Bates was an early settler of Green Township.
Josiah died intestate. There are 49 pages of records on file in the probate court of Springfield concerning his estate. The inventory indicates a well equipped home and farm. However, 50 acres had to be sold in order to pay taxes and some oustanding notes held against the estate.
Ellizabeth Bates is listed in 1830 U.S. Census of Green Towsnship as "head of household."
Josiah died at age 49. His son Charles died at age 45, and Charles' son, Francis at age 41. All owned land and were successful farmers. They raised large families and educated them, according to their time. It was evident, however, that the comparatively affluent living of the New Jersey generations had declined, and it remained a lower level for the following two generations.

Isaac Clark Bates was born 1770, died in Indiana, migrated in 1805 to Guernsey County, Ohio , later to Noble County, Seneca Township; married 1st, Katherine Moore, whose sister, Ruth married Isaac's brother Timothy; married 2nd, Catherine Powell. Isaac and his brother, Timothy, jointly entered 160 acres of land on Wills Creek in 1805. They had married sisters and agreed that when one of them was able to buy out the other, the other would sell. Isaac lost his wife early and her death placed him in a bind, so he sold to Timothy. He purchased land near Sarahsville and erected a mill on his farm that could be operated by horse-power when there was a scarcity of water. He also had a distillery and taught the oxen to drink the whiskey , using a coffee pot to pour it down their throats. When the roads were muddy and the loads hard to pull, Isaac would bring out the coffee pot and the oxen would eagerly elevate their heads to receive a dram, then pull with courage and strength renewed. He was a man of great endurance, especially in time of great pain. It became necessary to remove a leg. He sent for the doctor, but did not tell him of the problem. So the doctor had to use the tools at hand , a butcher knife without anesthetic. Isaac later moved to Indiana, where it became necessary to remove the other leg. Later, he moved again, so parts of his body were buried in three cemeteries. Source: O.D. Bates, 1977.

General Notes: Ephraim Bates Jr is buried on old homestead, lived on Mud Run in Seneca Township. Maple suga r trees grew on his land and he made sugar and molasses. This story indicates the character o f Ephraim, Jr. He is said to have disliked braggarts. While in Pennsylvania helping his broth er, Timothy, drive hogs across the mountains to Baltimore, he came upon a tavern-keeper boast ing that he had the best featherbeds. Ephraim told him he had never slept in a featherbed an d offered him 50 cents for its use. The man took him up and showed him to the room, whereupo n Ephraim ripped open the featherbed and crawled in. The next morning, he brushed off the fea thers, ate his breakfast and left on his journey. The group had not gone far, when the landlo rd overtook them and demanded pay for the featherbed. Ephraim said "I gave you 50 cents to sl eep in your featherbed and I paid you the money, so you may return". The others agreed as t o the facts, so the landlord returned without more pay. Elsie, wife of Ephraim, possessed rare courage. Once while Ephraim was away, their dog foun d a bear up a tree and was stirred up over it.

104. Timothy Bates was born on 29 Nov 1778 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, died on 15 Jun 1869 in Sarahsville, Noble County, Ohio at age 90, and was buried in Old Bates Cemetery, Sarahsville, Noble County, Ohio.

General Notes: Timothy Bates was born in Feyette County, Pennsylvania, 29 Nov 1778 and died 15 Jun 1869, migrated to Seneca Township, Noble County, Ohio, in 1805, became the first Postmaster in 1830 of the village later named Batesville. It is said his first quarterly report to the Post Office Department read "No letters, no papers; hope for better luck next quarter." He was pastor of the Mt. Ephraim Christian Church in 1840; married 1st 4 Feb 1804 to Ruth Moore of Captina C reek, Belmont County, Ohio. She died in 1860. Married 2nd to Sarah Ann Hughes, She died 15 Ja n 1872. He died 15 June 1867. He established a mill as early as 1815 in Wayne Township. He also built a distillery and people came as far as 20 to 30 miles to purchase whiskey, hauling a barrel home on skids harnessed to a horse with the large end of logs resting on the ground. He was a member of the Church of Christ and would sometimes preach in the storage area, using the whiskey barrels as pews. Once Timothy and his brother,Isaac, were hunting, Timothy was out ahead and heard a shot ring out. He turned around in time to see a panther drop from a tree overhead where he had been standing. Thus his life was probably saved.

On November 29, 1814, Seth Bates of Hamilton County sold 50 acres, the deed being signed by Seth and Sarah Bates, witnessed by Othneil Bates.

On January 16, 1815, Seth H. and Sarah Bates purchased 40 acres in Oxford Township, Butler County, for $1,400.00, beginning at the north west corner of Uzal Bates Fox's land.

As of January 30, 1815, Seth H. Bates was shown as owning one forth section of land in Cincinnati District of Indiana. (Indiana Genealogy Sources, by Margaret Ruth Waters, Dallas Public Library No. Gene. R-929.3 1 6 Zw.)

Seth Hurin Bates is listed in 1850 Census of Limestone County, Texas, at page 27. No. 76 5, Family 207, as age 68 and born in New Jersey. In the 1820 Census of Crawford County, Illinois, he is listed as the head of a family with two males and three female children under 10 years; 4 males and 1 female between 10 and 15 years; 1 male of 18 to 26 years; 1 female between 26 and 45 years. He and his family are also shown in the 1830 Census of Clark County, Illinois, on page 63, line 24. He was a Justice of the Peace in Crawford County in 1821. He moved to Coles County in the fall of 1824 and settled in Lafayette Township in the present town of Lafayette on the Kickapoo River in the spring of 1825. Coles County was formed in 1830 from Clark County, which was formed from Crawford County in 1819. The Illinois State Historical Society Journal, Vol. 14, page 113, names Seth Bates and his sons and stepsons Levi and Samuel Doty. In "History of Navarro, Henderson, Anderson, Limestone, Freestone and Leon Counties ", on page 676, it is stated he married Mary Anglin who may have been his third wife. The mother of our ancestor, David, must have been Sarah. In an affidavit seeking land bounty signed by Seth in Limestone County, Texas, on April 10, 1885, he stated he was 73 years of age , served as a private and first sergeant in the Ohio Militia in the War of 1812, as a substitute for Israel Ludlera, that he was drafted in Hamilton County, Ohio, in October or November , 1812, served six months and honorably discharged at Detroit (Michigan?) in March, 1813. He served in the 2nd Reg. (Zumwalt's) Ohio Militia, 1812. Seth came to Limestone County in 1835 with his youngest son, Silas H. Bates, and was living with him during the 1850 Census. Texas records show that Seth H. received Bounty Warrant No. 1316 for 320 acres from the Adjutant General on June 25, 1853, for services from October 1, 1835, to January 1, 1836. 320 acres in Limestone County were patented to David Bates, Asgn. on April 27, 1855. (Pat 1040 Vo l 6 Abst. 91 GLO File Rob Bty 708) Silas H. received Bounty Warrant No. 3509 for 1280 acres f rom the Secretary of War on May 22, 1838, for services from September 5, 1836 to September 5 , 1837. 1200 acres in Freestone County were patented to him on October 8, 1846 (Pat. 142 Vo l 3 Abst 99 GLO File Rob Bty 116) in 1835, Silas built his cabin at the Bates Spring, where Groesbeck Park is now located. One son, John remained in Illinois, attended an Old Settlers' reunion at Charleston in 1878, and probably died in the 1880's. He is listed in the 1850 Census of Coles County, Illinois, as Family 199, showing he was 39 years of age, born in Ohio. Seth died October 15, 1860, and is buried in Glenwood Memorial Park (Fort Parker Memorial Park ) on Farm Road 1245, two miles northwest of Groesbeck, Limestone County, Texas.

Daniel Parker, who could read but not write, was a neighbor to Seth Bates in Coles Count y, Illinois, and was an ordained Baptist Minister. He was opposed to all missionary work, was quite a convincing talker and caused a split in the church. He concluded to visit Texas and came to Austin's Colony. He learned that the Mexican ecclesiastic statutes prohibited the organization of any church other than Catholic, but that there was no prohibition against the importation of an organized church of another faith. He went back to Illinois, organized a church and brought it to Texas. Apparently Seth and Silas came with them, but they were not listed as members. The church historian said the list did not include all members. Daniel Parker formed the "Pilgrim Church of Predestination Regular Baptists" at what is now four miles east of Elkhart, Anderson County, Texas. It appears after a short stay in Texas, Seth returned to Illinois, returning to Texas in 1835. Part of the Parker clan settled first near Grimes Prairie in Grimes County, Texas, but one and one half years later moved northwest, built cabins and a stockade later known as "Old Fort Parker", two miles northeast of Groesbeck. The colony consisted of the Parkers, Anglins, Frosts, Bates, Plummers and Nixons. On May 19. 1836, after the men had eaten lunch and returned to the fields about two miles from the fort , some 300 to 500 Indians (Camanches and Kiowas) attacked the fort. Five persons were killed , two wounded and five were taken prisoners, one of which was Synthia Ann Parker. As the Indians attacked, Mrs Sarah Nixon escaped and warned the men in the fields, but when they got near the fort, they found most of the Indians had left. The home of Silas Bates, with whom Seth lived, was east of the fort and apparently in the area of the farm land. The first school was taught in May or June 1846 and the House of Silas Bates was used on November 3, 1874 . Silas H. Bates applied for a pension and said he had served in the Army of the Republic in 1836 and 1837 and was then 60 years of age. In 1962, the State of Texas erected a monument t in Fort Parker Memorial Park in his honor, for having served in Captain Seale's Company in 1835-1836. In Newman's "History of Primitive Baptists in Texas". S.H Bates and H.J. Jones were listed as messengers from Frost Creek Church of Limestone County on July 22, 23 and 24, 1887. On October 5, 1837, Seth H. Bates signed an affidavit concerning delivery of 555 pounds of beef to the Texas Rangers for $35.51. Source: O.D. Bates, 1977.




Seth was born in 1782, New Jersey. He was the son of Uzal Bates and his wife Elizabeth Hurin of Morris county, NJ.
We can follow the early years of Seth Bates written in a diary by James Wood, who had gone to work for the family of Uzal Bates.

James recorded that on May 17, 1790, he and the Bates family started out for the Miami country in the Northwest Territory, arriving in Ohio about 1792. Uzal Bates was listed in Hamilton County, OH. as a lieutenant in the Militia and a supervisor of highways in the Delhi township in 1795.

According to deed records in Hamilton county, OH. we find that Seth's wife was named Sarah. Unable to prove her maiden name. By 1820 Seth and children by Sarah had moved to Crawford County, Ill. Seth married Anna Mann
Doty that year but did not have children by her. Military records in the National Archives show Seth served in the War of 1812 from butler County, OH.

Children of Seth and Sarah were;
1. David, b. 1807 Hamilton Co, OH. d. 1871, Limestone Co, Texas. David married Eliza Eastin, dau. of Charles Eastin and wife Sarah Swearingren Eastin. Eliza died 1845 leaving six children. David remarried 1846 to Mahala Daughety Cox and had at least four more children. This family moved to Limestone Co, Texas before 1860.

2. Orpha, (my g-g-grandmother), the oldest daughter of Seth, was born about 1810 in OH. and died after 1860 in Limestone Co, Texas. Orpha first married James James in 1827 in Coles Co, Ill. James died before 1836, when Orpha and her two small children filed entry papers in Robertson's Colony on the 14th of Jan 1836. Shortly after her arrival in Texas, she married Elisha Anglin and had a large family.

3. John M. Bates, the second son of Seth was born 1811 in OH. and died 1883 in coles co, Ill. John married Amanda Phipps and raised a large family there.

4. Elizabeth, second dau. of Seth, was 1812 in OH. and died 1902 in Coles, Co, Ill. She married first Samuel Martin and later to Robert Miller. She had children by both.

5. Silas H. born 1814 OH. died 1888 in Limestone Co, Texas,
Silas came to Texas with his father and served as a Ranger during the Texas Revolution. a plaque outside of Texas Ranger Headquarters in Waco, list Silas as an early Ranger. Silas first married Mary Anglin, and then Adelaine Faulkenberry. Silas had children by both wives.

6. Phoebe born 1816. In 1834 she married
Samuel Lumbrick in Ill. having a family and remaining there.

Records show that Seth supplied beef to the Rangers during the Texas Revolution, and also served on the first grand jury of Robertson County, Texas. His land which was located in the present counties of Milam, Robertson and Limestone Counties, received two Spanish Land Grants shortly after arriving in Texas. His normal residence was near the town of Groesbeck, Texas in Limestone County.

Among the many tragedies that have occurred in Texas the massacre at Parker's fort holds a conspicuous place. Nothing that has ever happened exhibits savage duplicity and cruelty more plainly than the massacre of helpless women and children.

In 1833, Elder John Parker organized a small colony in the State of Illinois for the purpose of forming a settlement in Texas. Many of the colonist were kindred of Elder John Parker but not all. After their arrival in Texas, they found the country they selected for a place of residence, a beautiful region on the Navasota, a small tributary of the Brazos river.

To secure themselves against the various tribes of roving savages was the first thing to be attended to; and, having chosen a commanding eminence adjacent to a large timbered bottom of the Navasota, about three miles from where the town of Springfield formerly stood, and about two miles from the present town of Groesbec, they by their joint labor soon had a fortification erected. The fort consisted of a stockade of split cedar timbers planted deep in the ground, extending some fifteen feet above the surface, touching each other and confined at the top by transverse timbers which rendered them almost as immovable as a solid wall. At convenient distances, there were portholes, through which, in case of an emergency, firearms could be fired. The entire fort covered nearly an acre of ground. There were also attached to the stockade two log cabins at diagonal corners, constituting a part of the enclosure. They were really blockhouses, the greater portion of each standing outside of the main stockade, the upper story jutting out over the lower, with openings in the floor allowing perpendicular shooting from above. There were also portholes in the upper story so as to permit horizontal shooting when necessary.

The fort was situated near a fine spring of water. As soon as it was completed, the little colony moved into it.

The following colonist lived within the confines of the fortress:

Elder John Parker: the patriarch of the colony. His wife; his son, James W. Parker, wife, four single children, and his daughter, Mrs. Rachel Plummer, her husband, L.M.S. Plummer, and an infant son fifteen months old; Mrs. Sarah Nixon, another daughter, and her husband, L.D. Nixon; Silas M. Parker (another son of Elder John), his wife and four children; Benjamin F. Parker, and unmarried son of the elder Parker; Mrs. Nixon, Sr., mother of Mrs. James W. Parker; Mrs. Elizabeth Kellogg, daughter of Mrs. Nixon; Mrs. Duty; Samuel M Frost, wife and two children; G.E. Dwight, wife and two children -- in all, thirty four persons.

Besides those mentioned above, other colonist that had made the hard trip from Illinois were: old man Lunn; David Faulkenberry and his son Evan; Silas Bates and Abram Anglin. These individuals had erected cabins a mile or two distant from the fort, where they resided. These families were truly the advance guard of civilization in that part of our frontier, Fort Houston in Anderson county being the nearest protection except their own trusty fortress and rifles.

On May 19th., 1836, a restless band of Indians appeared about four hundred yards in the distance. Hoisting a white flag as an indication of peace, a group of warriors approached the fort. Benjamin Parker went to see what they wanted. Supposedly, they inquired about good camping ground near the springs and asked for a beef. Parker promised the Indians they would have what they wanted. Returning to the fort, Benjamin told the fort inhalants he feared they intended fighting, but said he would return to try to avert a fight. Women and children tried to dissuade him but he persisted in going, and was immediately surrounded and bludgeoned to death by blood-thirsty, ravenge-bent Indians. Sight of blood caused the war party to begin their yelling and whooping which promped a charge upon the fort, resulting in one of the bloodiest acts in the annals of Texas history. Fortunately, several colonists had fled by this time and others were endeavoring to escape. Silas M. Parker fell outside the fort, trying to save some women and children.

Elder John Parker, Sallie White Parker, and Mrs. Elizabeth Kellogg fled from the fort. After going a short distance, Indians overtook them, killed Elder John Parker, stabbed and left for dead Granny Sallie Parker, and took Mrs. Kellogg a captive. Samuel M. Frost and his son, Robert, fell inside the fort. Rachel Plummer and her small son, James Pratt, Cynthia Ann Parker and John Parker were taken as prisoners. The results of the attack may be summed up as five dead, two wounded and five taken as captives.

As the attack commenced, Mr. Sarah Nixon, hastened to the fields to tell her husband, father and brother-in-law, Luther T.M. Plummer, of the impending crisis. Plummer, acting as courier, rode to the neighboring farms, informing Abram Anglin, Seth and Silas Bates, David and Evan Faulkenberry, and Mr. Lunn. James w. Parker and L.D. Nixon started to the fort and met Lucinda Parker and her four children, just as they were overtaken by a number of Indians. Indians forced Lucinda to place Cynthia Ann and John Parker on two warriors' horses but she and her two younger children, Silas M. and Orlena, were being taken back to the fort when Nixon appeared.

Indians were about to kill Nixon when David & Evan Faulkenberry, Elisha Anglin and Plummer appeared, causing the Indians to surrender their prisoners. Indians made several dashes toward them, but were halted by the rifles carried by the Fulkenberry's.

129. Charles Bates was born on 2 Mar 1800 in Waterford, Gloucester County, New Jersey and died on 18 Sep 1845 in Fulton County, Illinois at age 45.

General Notes: Charles Bates name first appears in his father's estate papers. This was in reference to a balance of $50.00 owned Charles for a horse sold to Josiah in 1821. IN the same bill presented to Josiah's estate were nine items, all, with the exception of the one for the horse and another for 11 gallons of whiskey, related to the farm work done by Charles the summer of his father's death. The correctness of this bill was attested by Charles' brother Samuel. It appears that Charles and Winnifred lived on or close to his father's farm, as his name repeatedly appears in the estate papers as a buyer of farm equipment or grain. In the U.S. Census Reports of 1830, he is shown to be a resident of Greene Township, Clark County, but was not found on the tax rolls of that year. By inference appears that he and Winnifred were residents of Highland County in 1834 at the time of the settlement of the estate of Winnifred's step mother Martha Bocock. They are listed among the defendants that were served summons by the sheriff of Highland County. The record then states, "The other defendants were found to be non residents and were served by publication." However, one of their children born in 1836 gave his birth place as Clark County.
By 1836, the National Road was about completed. It then extended from Baltimore to Vanadalia, Illinois. Overland transportation has become relatively safe as the indians were not longer a threat to travelers and the lawless element among the whites was pretty well controlled. It seems thought Charles and Winnifred were waiting for this accomplishment, since they had packed all of their belongings in wagons and again moved westward. Their goal was Fulton County, Illinois. There, after two or three moves, they settled on a farm known as the "The Ballard Place," on the "Old Plank Road," five miles south east of Canton. It was here that Charles after a prolonged illness, died intestate nine years later. A deed recorded in the county seat, Lewiston, shows that Charles bought some land of Rubin Bates, of no known relationship, in 1840.
This branch of the family had continued the use of the name Bate until the mid 1830's when the "s" was added. The story goes that Nancy the eldest daughter, was called Nancy "Fish Bait" by her school mates. It was she who changed her name to Bates, and the rest of the family followed suit.
After Charles' death, Winnifred lived with her children and was always of help to them. In particular, she spent much time with Francis Marion, her second son, and after his death, with his widow, Amanda. It was from this long and close association that Alice May, Francis' and Amanda's daughter, obtained much of the earlier detail about the family, which she late wrote about.
Charles and Winnifred are buried in their family plot, High Bridge Cemetery, about five miles south east of Canton.

Charles married Winnifred Bocock, daughter of Elijah Bocock and Hannah, on 23 Feb 1826 in Green County, Ohio. Winnifred was born in 1804 in Bedford County, Virginia and died on 19 Feb 1893 in Canton, Illinois at age 89.

The following is from William Bates and his Descendants by Dighton M Bates 1910 updated by Madge Bates 1962: Daniel Bates, son of Isaac Bates, Sr., was born in 1803 and married Miss Jane Heddleson in 1827. They had a family of six children: Isaac, John, Joseph, Robert, Margaret and William, who died when young. As there were several Daniel Bates he was called "Stuttering Dan", because he stuttered when he talked. He was converted and joined the church when a young man, and was a faithful Christian and a great Bible student. He read his Bible so much that some people said "Stuttering Dan" was going crazy. But he was zealous in the right way and lived up to his profession and attended church regularly. He and his wife were the original members of the Pleasant Hill M.E. church in Enoch Township.

About 1867 Daniel Bates entered 640 acres of land in Stock Twp. where he lived to be over eighty eight years of age. Mr. Bates was one of the hardy pioneers that helped to settle and clear up this Country. Daniel Bates and wife were good christian citizens and lived so that when they were gone they were missed in the community and church where they lived. These two pioneers are buried in the Pleasant Hill cemetery in Enoch Township.

Stuttering Daniel Bates was a man that sympathized with the weak and was always ready to help them. On one occasion when he was passing by a school house where the teacher had dismissed school in the evening, heard a boy screaming as though he were suffering great pain. Daniel tried to open the door but found it fastened. However he was not long in bursting the door open, and on entering found the teacher using the rod of correction on his own boy, to correct him for some cause. The pupil knew not what he had done, but Mr. Bates soon put a stop to that business for the boy had been striped and blood was coming from is body. Mr. Bates took the teacher by the collar and put him out pretty roughly. The teacher afterwards acknowledged that he had been served right.

172. Jacob Bates was born on 29 Oct 1810 in Guernsey County, Ohio, died on 26 Sep 1883 at age 72, and was buried in Sarahsville, Noble County, Ohio.

General Notes: Jacob and wife Jane both buried Nicholson Cemetery, Sarahsville, Noble County. Ohio. Jacob was a cabinet maker. Mrs. Madge Bates has a cradle and chest that are still in good shape. Three generations have rocked in it.

Jacob Bates, son of Isaac Bates, was born on Wills Creek in what was then Guernsey County in the year 1810. In 1815 his father moved on a piece of land near Sarahsville. Jacob assisted with the farm work and also learned the carpenter trade. He married Miss Jane Davidson, a native of W. Virginia. To them were born eight children. The oldest was Sarah Jane, who died when a young woman; the second was Phebe, who married John W. Phelas, and to whom were born seven children, six girls and one boy; the third as Caroline, who married William Anderson and who is deceased; fourth is Isaac; fifth, Catherine; sixth, Daniel Webster, deceased; seventh, Mary A.; eighth, William.

Jacob Bates owned a farm on the ridge east of Sarahsville. He was a farmer and carpenter. By careful management and industry he accumulated a good deal of property. Jacob and Jane Bates were ever ready to help the needy and feed the hungry. No one ever left their house hungry if they knew it. Mr. Bates could make many useful things out of wood, such as dressers, cupboards, safes, bureaus and chests. The writer has a cradle and chest that he made and both are still in good shape. The cradle is four feet long. As there were some giants among the Bates, it was necessary to make the length. There have been three generations rocked in this cradle.

Jacob Bates fixed up his business while living so that when he died the heirs did not have to go into court to settle up his estate. He divided his property between his children and grandchildren that were living at that time. He had one great grandson to whom he left $200. Jacob Bates and wife were among the hardy pioneers that made this country better by living in it. They were people that lived up to the Golden Rule. At one time there was a school teacher in the district in which he lived that would not treat his pupils. So Mr. Bates gave them a big treat which they enjoyed very much, for it was the best supply of apples the country could afford.

Jane, wife of Jacob Bates, died March 8, 1877, and Jacob Bates died Sept. 26, 1883, at the age of 73 years. They are both buried in the Nicholson cemetery near Sarahsville.

Phoebe, eldest daughter of Jacob and Jane Bates, married John E. Phelps and they had a family of three small girls. In 1862 he enlisted in Co. H. of the 116th Reb. 0.V.I. and served nearly three years in the Civil War. Mrs. Phelps was left alone to keep the wolf from the door while her husband was serving his country.

John H. Phelps died Sept. 7, 1887. Phoebe is still living at the age of 76 years (1912). She is one of the war widows that did what she could to save the Union. She lives on the farm where her husband died. Her children are all married and scattered so that she seldom gets to see them.

Mary A. youngest daughter of Jacob and Jane Bates, married Nathaniel Bates and lives in Center Twp. William, youngest and eighth son of Jacob Bates married Balinda Brothers and their two children are living, Ella and William B. Ella married Hiram Moore, who lived but a few years. He left one daughter, Hazel. After a few years Ella married Wesley Shafer and at the present she is still living in Mt. Ephriam. Mr. Shafer died several years ago. William B. is single and at the present (1960) lives with Hazel who is a retired school teacher. They live up above Fredericksdale, on Dawson Ridge in a house that William Bates built when he said that he was going to build a house bigger than any of the other Bates, and closer to heaven. It is indeed higher up than any other place around there and it is in a very beautiful country. It is really a thrill to go around the country over there and to think of all the people years ago that enjoyed the same beauty. The forests are so thick it is no wonder the pioneers liked to hunt thru them so well. William Bates is also a news writer for the Noble Co. paper and manages to get all the local news in.

William., son of Jacob and Jane died March 16, 1911, and was buried in the cemetery near Sarahsville.

Catherine, the third daughter of Jacob and Jane Bates, married John Johnson before the Civil war. She had two little girls to care for while her husband went as a soldier in Company H. 161st Regiment 0.V.I. After he returned from the war, they moved to Indiana where one child, a boy, was born. His name is John Johnson, Jr. He is married and lives at Ava, Ohio. The oldest daughter Jane, married Joseph Moore. Lucy is the second daughter.

174. Richard Bates was born about 1817 in Noble County, Ohio and died in Michigan.

General Notes: Richard Bates, oldest son of Isaac and Catherine Powell Bates was born in
Noble County, and grew to manhood near Sarahsville. He was a carpenter by
trade and a good workman. Richard married Miss Elizabeth Davison, a native
of W. Virginia. To this union were born six children; Martha, Sarah,William B., Margaret, Mary E, and Robert H. Martha, the oldest
daughter,
married Richard Ireland and moved to Indiana, where she had both legs
amputated. She was living the last heard of. We do not know how much family
she had. The second daughter, Sarah, married William York. Then the next,
William B., was a soldier in the Civil war and as he was living in the west
we have no account of him after the war closed.
Margaret J., the third daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Bates, married
James Byers. Then Mary E. and Robert H. married in the west and we have no
further record of them. Richard Bates and all his family moved to Warsaw,
In .
Richard Bates was over six feet in height and would weigh 280 to 300 pounds
and a giant in size and strength. He could carry a load that three ordinary
men could hardly carry. He was called "Big Dick Bates." At one time Dr. M.
H. Neville was Joking Richard about his being so large and he said,
"Richard, it would be cheaper for you to live than to die, for it would
take so long to bury you." Richard's reply was, "Doctor, it would be
cheaper for you to die than to live, for it takes so much to feed you."

Richard Bates helped his brother, Isaac Bates, Jr., build the Corn Pone
meeting house. He done all the finishing work. People would say, "that
Richard Bates needed a very strong scaffold to hold him," while putting on
siding. Houses were built much stronger then. The light frame building that
is put up these days would be a little shaky with as large a man as Richard
Bates working on it.

His wife, Elizabeth, died at Warsaw, Ind. Afterwards he married the second
time and moved to Michigan, where he died.

He taught one term at what was called the Patrick Finley school house, but now Mud Run school in Seneca Township. At that time there were several young men in the district that came to school and they were hard to control. Very few teachers could manage them, but Andrew Bates was no small kid, was over seven tall and a large boned man and the young men that had run other teachers off did not feel like tackling him, so Andrew Bates taught a successful term of school and then went west to Warsaw, Indiana, where he married a lady of that place and to which union were born four sons, of their names and whereabouts we have no record.

When Bethel Bates was a boy he went with his father, his uncle Ephraim and Benjamin Farley, who had discovered some bears in a hollow tree and wished to secure them. Bethel was assigned to the duty of holding a big dog by a strap while the others cut down the tree. The dog was very anxious to get away and when the tree fell the boy let him go. As soon as the tree fell a bear jumped out; the dog attacked it, but the bear soon put an end to his annoyance, striking him a vigorous blow with his paw and knocking him over into a hollow. Ephraim Bates then shot the bear. By the time he he had his gun reloaded another bear crawled out of the trunk of the tree and he also shot it. This took place near Mr. Bates' present home.

The earliest school in the Bates neighborhood was on the creek north of the present residence of Bethel Bates. James Tuttle was an early teacher there.

Timothy Bates' mill and distillery were visited by the early settlers for many miles around. The mill was in operation as early as 1815. People cam twenty and thirty miles to get whiskey from the distillery. The method of hauling it was to harness a horse between two poles, or "skids", one end of which rested on the ground. The barrel of whiskey was then rolled upon the poles, and held in place by wooden pins placed in auger-holes bored through the poles. The improvised vehicle was degnified by the name of cars.

To show the difference between then and now - in 1830, 160 acres of land belonging to Timothy Bates had an assessed valuation of $291. In 1886, 305 acres belonging to Bethel Bates in the same section were valued at $6,260; and thirty six aces in an adjoining section of Marion Township, with the same owner, were valued at $1,020.

General Notes: FREDERICK SHAMBLEN

In the histories that man writes about the beginning and its progress up to date, he tends to emphasize those who do great deeds. This is as it should be, but those who do great deeds need help. In that role fall most of the people of our society. Such were the people of the Shamblen Family. Frederick Shamblen was born in Noble County, Ohio on August 7, 1826 , the son of Caleb and Dolly Ann (Slaughter) Shamblen. He brought his family westward and lived in Hancock County, Illinois, and Henry County Iowa, before moving to Mills County. He served with the Union forces during the Civil War. His life has been traced through the years by census records, his obituary and an article in the Glenwood paper in 1915. His last years were lived in a small house just in back of the stores on the south side of the square in Glenwood. He died August 2, 1915, at the advanced age of 89 years and 23 days. (That is not correct, he was 5 days short of his 89th birthday) He lies under a Civil War marker in the Glenwood cemetery. Frederick Shamblen and his second wife Susanna Bates, migrated to Glenwood a bout 1871. Frederick apparently worked at day labor before his health began to fail in later years. Frederick had 13 children by his two wives as follows: Phebe, the eldest, married Sylvanius Nichols and lived in Hancock County, Illinois. Elizabeth first married Manly Gilpin in Ohio and later George Askern in Glenwood. She came to Glenwood in 1876. David Barnett, associated with the Glenwood Post Office many years and active in the American Legion, was her grandson. Nancy remained in Ohio. Thomas married Anna Merrill and they raised 13 children in Mills and Fremont counties. Emmaretta married John Mickelwait and raised her family in Glenwood . George died in Glenwood. Rhoda married James Hannah and lived around Glenwood. Caleb died as a child. Anna married Adam Rager and raised their eight children in Glenwood. Clara married Thomas Hall and had at least four children. Mary married Rob Vanderford and had at least three children. Sarah married John Johnson and had three children. They lived in Glenwood. Jessie married a Mr. Dlowell. They had at least four children. The descendants of this man number over 400 people, many of whom are still living in or around the Mills County area.

General Notes: William Alexander Bates, was born Nov. 14, 1836, in Indiana. His father, David, moved the family to Limestone County, Texas, in 1852.
In 1859 William married Julia Ann Clendennen. He was 22; she was 20. They had twin daughters, Mary Ann and Martha Ann. Julia died exactly two years from the day she was married.
William joined the 10th Texas Infantry in 1862 to fight in the Civil War. He left Mary Ann with his brother Charley, and Martha Ann with his sister, Mrs. Billy Webb. He fought in many battles and was with General Robert E. Lee in the Battle of Richmond.
He returned after the war and in 1866 married Sarah Hannah Clendennen, a cousin of his first wife. They took his daughters and rented a farm. My grandmother was not only a wife and mother but also a "woman doctor". Legally licensed or not, it is recorded that she delivered 1074 babies between 1874 and 1904 when she died. "It never got too cold or too dark for her to go when called."
William had 7 children: John, Jim, Miller, Matilda, Jennie, Sam and Alma, in addition to the twins by Julia. They had 50 grandchildren (all of us born within 20 miles of the Coryell County Courthouse) and I can still recall each of them by name remembering the good times we spent together. My grandparents are buried in Bethel Cemetery and all their children lie in Coryell County except Sam, who rests in California.

This cemetery is located approximately at 81st Street and Maybell Avenue; on the edge of Jenks, Tulsa County, Oklahoma. It was named for Byron Covey, a Creek Indian, Roll No. 1955; and was part of his original allotment. The legal description is: sec. 14, Twp. 18N, Rg. 12E.
Indian land was not divided for allotment until 1898, but the first marked grave shows a burial in 1875. One - Pearl; a child of G.I. Tida, who died 2nd February 1875. '
Because there were no early cemeteries in the Creek area, many families from here used this burial ground. Thus the cemetery had important information about early settlers.
The cemetery is located in a very nice setting, among several large trees. For quite some time the area was not kept up. However now, there is a Cemetery Board, which is endeavoring to bring about some order. The cemetery was inventoried in August 1982.

Elizabeth married Cyrus Archer, son of Ananias Archer and Mariah Miller, on 23 Dec 1876 in Noble County, Ohio. Cyrus was born on 18 Sep 1858 in Caldwell, Noble County, Ohio, died on 7 Nov 1929 in Densmore, Norton County, Kansas at age 71, and was buried in Archer Cemetery, Densmore, Norton County, Kansas. The cause of his death was Fell off scaffolding building church.

General Notes: Source: "William Bates and his descendants" by Dighton M. Bates (1910) updated by Madge Bates (1962) Occupation: Minister, Free Methodist

Glen Archer says that Cyrus' first contact when arriving in Norton C0. was with John T. Densmore. Densmore arrived in 1874 and settled but Densmore was layout in 1881. According to an old local history Doyle saw in High School, someone originally tried to organize the town of Densmore about 2.25 miles east of present day Densmore which would put it near Joseph's place.

There are several theories on where and how Cyrus acguired his land. Densmore's land was in SE of S. 6 and NE S. 7 of T. , R. 21). Cyrus, according to Glen, moved a mile south of Densmore and settled SW S. 7 [ or maybe S. 18 and probably had a dugout. Later he moved to S. 17 [ which became his permanent home. There are still the remnants of two dugouts and an old sod house in this area that may have been the original Densmore settlement.

(From Doyle Archer) Cyrus Archer House [Built ca. 1886 made with stone from a quarry just over the hill constructed by same architect and workmen who constructed the Joseph Archer place, as the plans, materials, keystones are the same style. The building next to it in ruins measuring about 45x15 ft. made of same material as the house was believed to be the chick house but could have been a temporary residence while the house was being built. - Doyle Archer]

From p. 6 of the "Commemorative Issue of the Norton County 'News' 1870-1915 and is continued from the Sep 1988 issue of the 'Tracer' Cyrus Archer has done much for the betterment of Densmore and helped organize the Free Methodist Church and was its first Pastor. He was born in Noble Co. Ohio in 1857, coming to Norton Co., in 1879. He was married in 1877 and is the father of a 11 children, 7 of whom are living at this time.

CYRUS ARCHER By Glenn L. Archer- 2/15/79

In some respects Cyrus Archer, my grandfather, was not a very good farmer. His implements, harness for the horses and mules, sheds and barns were second class. I don't recall that he ever bought a new wagon or a new set of hamesses during the days when I was living with him on the 520 acre homestead. He attended the local farm sale and bought bargains - horses, cows, pigs, equipment, tools and so on. As I reflect nearly all of his equipment was rusted, worn and shoddy. He would not go to town to buy a bolt when a little wire would repair a harness or a machine. William Harrison, a neighbor, always had big mules new machines and well oiled, heavy leather harnesses, collars, and fancied them with colored ornamental rings on bridles and neck straps. Not so my grandfather. In comparison, the Archers looked like poor farmers.

Cyrus never shedded his farm machinery, nor lined them up in a straight row like some farmers did. His implements - wagon, discs, cultivators could be found anywhere on the Archer homestead. It must be said the grassy plot north of the Brick house had a cluster of machines, but some of them were old, worn out, no longer in use. Other tilling equipment might be anywhere on the farm. His brother, Joe, had big red barns, a better house, more and better equipment. Joe was a bigger operator and wealthier. Joe had eight children at home and thus an abundance of free labor. Cyrus had two boys, Frances and Clarence, still living on the farm, who did most of the actually farming with help of a hired man. Grandfather was a kind of a supervisor, dispatching the men to the fields, there to plant, disc, plow, cultivate, seed or whatever was the job of the season. Despite this general indifference to quality and attractive equipment, the homestead was not without esthetic appeal. The huge stone two story house was surrounded by a fence pretty well hidden by current bushes and trees. This border of fence bushes and trees made a haven from the hot sun and severe winds. What a relief to come from the hot fields into this enclosure and cool shade. Inside the enclosures were a variety of flowers in beds of different shapes and fruit trees were scattered about, cherries, mulberries, apricots, peaches and plumbs. Those who required green grass would have been disappointed for blue grass was never planted and buffalo sod was as brown as the ground during Kansas summer West of the stone house, perhaps fifty yards were two enclosures of currant bushes; one two acres served as a vegetable garden, the other perhaps five acres served as an orchard. These two small fields ran west to Sand Creek from which water was pumped to the garden and to the orchards. Grandfather was more skillful in the garden and the orchard than in the regular fields. As a matter of fact, he spent the greater part of his working hours in the garden and orchard, while the men tended the com, harvested the wheat, oats, barley, hay and corn. Cattle and horses were his money makers, while the crops were the food for the animals.

Grandmother played an important role in caring for the garden. She raised chickens, turkeys, hens, ducks, and geese. She canned fruit, meat, stored pumpkins in the cellar and sold cream in ten gallon cans and eggs in 30 dozen crates. She kept in a fruit jar in the cupboard the receipts of all the farm sales and gave away cents very sparingly, even to grandfather. She made, with the help of Joe Archer's girls, gloves by the dozen and overalls. These, too, she gave out slowly and reluctantly to the men on the farm. Once I asked for a pair of mittens to husk com. She demanded my old mittens to see whether she could mend them before giving a new pair made of overall cloth and lined with flannel.

If grandfather was an indifferent farmer, it was likely due to his greater interest in preaching the gospel, building churches, and traveling his self made circuit of meeting places where farmers came to hear him preach. His favorite comment was " I raise cattle to make a living; preach the gospel to make a life". To pursue this preaching ministry, he would harness a team of trotting ponies, hitch them to a small buggy, load his fur blanket (made from a farm animal), take his song books and Bible and off he would go for the weekend to Cross Roads School House, to Cactus Church and to Almanac Church, to Page and Winona, Kansas and to Penokee, Kansas. He had a dozen points where the folks wanted him to preach. He never made any charge, didn't want any money. He did accept lodging on occasions, especially when he was to far from home to drive back in one night. On many Monday mornings, grandmother would call me from my bed. "Get up and help your grandfather tend his team. He has just driven in". I would take the team, remove the harness, water, and feed them and grandfather would go to the house for coffee, eggs and pancakes and a nap before assuming the management of his farm. A number of times I went with grandfather on these preaching jaunts. He let me drive the team, interrupting with a "Gee" or "Haw" (right, left) to direct me to the destination. There were no roads or fences, just an open expanse of flat prairies in front of us. We followed section lines and old wagon trails on occasions, but it was mostly taking out on the flat land in an angle he knew would land us to the destination.

When we arrived at the appointed place, a sod house, frame school house, sod church, renewed barn - what ever the meeting place, he was greeted like a lost brother, and he seemed to enjoy meeting even the babies. I have felt he would have made a superb politician. At some point he moved to the front and started a hymn, while I passed out the dozen or so songbooks. He knew the songs he used from memory and the page of the book where the song appeared. Amazing Grace, Rock of Ages, Faith of our Fathers - were standard. Then he prayed. Sometimes he would ask for a testimony period when farmers told how things were with them. What God had done for them since last the met, for the meetings were held irregularly? Then grandfather would preach, usually a short sermon. In this regard he was unique. Most preachers talked on forever but not Cyrus Archer. In jest he told me he could tell all he knew in twenty minutes adding more souls are lost by long winded preachers. An altar call followed the short sermon and off we would go with our team back to the Archer ranch. On the way home he would sing all the songs he had led at the service and others he enjoyed. Among his favorites was: Dare to be a David Dare to stand alone Dare to have a purpose firm And dare to make it known.

We arrived back to the ranch depending on the distance, between 12 midnight and 5:00 am the care of the horses, the breakfast of eggs and pancakes and black strap molasses, and off to bed. It was a typical weekend for Cyrus Archer, the farmer/preacher.

When I say that Cyrus Archer was not a fancy farmer, I do not mean to imply he did not succeed. Today I own his ranch. I have the deeds and abstracts to prove he never had a mortgage on his ranch during a time when most ranches were mortgaged and lost thru foreclosures or abandonment, or sale. From this farm my grandparents educated seven children, all preachers, some with degrees. To be sure the children helped one another and my grandparents helped with money when needed. Also when there was money needed to build churches, Cyrus supplied his share. When he retired from the farm, he had funds to buy 5 acres, build a new house, furnish it, and live the remainder of his life without social security, welfare or outside assistance. When both grandparents died I inherited a small sum from their estate, and personally handled the family business for my uncles and aunts.

Cyrus was about 5 ft. 8 in. tall, weighed about 160 pounds. He was quick of movement, barreled chested, very strong in arms and shoulders. He wore a mustache most of his time that I knew him ( 50 - 71). He spoke rapidly, loudly. His singing voice would not have won any contests, but he could be heard for blocks. He never graduated from grade school. Yet he was well read especially in religious matters. He read the Bible thru every year for fifty years, as did grandmother. He was an ardent republican, follower of Carry Nation, the anti saloon, prohibition leader. He never smoked, chewed, or swore. He liked strong
coffee. He could ride a horse with the best, and shoot a gun expertly.

I saw him last alive in the fall of 1929, from my classroom at Densmore High School. 1 saw grandfather carrying a long heavy post and an iron handled hammer. I thought at the time "He is going down to the river to repair the fence for the horses that he still owned." He loved horses. Within an hour, Josh Gram ham knocked vigorously at my classroom door and quickly opened the door shouting "come to your house, your grandfather is dying". I ran one block. He was in my bed, dead when I arrived. I asked the men to help me carry him to his house two blocks away. We put him on the sofa in the front room, called Mr. Abe Frankie , the Logan undertaker to come to Cyprus Archer's house in Dens more, Kansas. I comforted grandmother a moment and walked to father's lumber office. Father asked, "Is he really gone?" I replied, "Yes. I have called Mr Frankie." Father, G Archer, a quiet unemotional man, walked out into the lumberyard to be alone with his grief. In the office a hard drinking, rough, un religious man, Claude Searsh, burst out in loud sobs, "He was the greatest man I ever knew".

Cyrus Archer was buried in the Archer Cemetery three blocks east of Densmore facing his brother Joe's beautiful ranch house.

Cyprus worked in the Pottery place, East Union, Noble County, Ohio, He was born on Archer Ridge/near East Union. There he married Elizabeth Bates, bought a team of oxen and covered wagon. They drove to Kansas in 1877. Before he left Ohio he had been converted to the Methodist faith at the Archer Community Church, Archer Ridge, (1979 still stands closed). He lived that faith as a Kansas Pioneer. Today in Greenville, Illinois, at Greenville College there is an Archer Hall to perpetuate the memory of the life he lived and the family he launched.

Free Methodist Church


Around the year 1880 the Cyrus Archer family moved from Ohio to Kansas and settled on a homestead south of Densmore. He became a witness to Holiness, building a sod church having dirt floors, and seats and pulpit made of rough hewn logs. A short time later the services were moved to the schoolhouse in Densmore.

The first regular appointment was in 1886 with A. S. Manning as pastor. In 1902 a limestone building was erected, as the church grew in members the building had to grow too, so in 1930 while J. T. Pyle was pastor the present brick structure was built. The church prospered, in 1935 the membership was 109. However, the depression days came and caused many to move to other parts. A new modern parsonage was built in 1958. Carl Boys was pastor in 1959 and probably the last minister before the church closed and the congregation went to the Logan Free Methodist Church. A. J. Lunsford (husband of Lillie French) was pastor of the church in 1915-16.

To the casual observer the beginning of the Free Methodist Church at Densmore dates back to the year 1885 when the first class of five members was organized. In reality, it began a number of years earlier than that. It was over 70 years ago that a young couple, newly married, started their new home with a family altar, and a zeal for God's work which never wavered. Cyrus and Elizabeth Archer were born and reared in a community in south eastern Ohio where Methodism was strong and real revivals were a common thing. In 1879, this couple fired with the pioneer spirit to travel to the new western country, left their native state; loved ones and home and made the long, tiresome and hazardous journey into the west.

Arriving at their destination in Norton County, Kansas, a homestead site was found, filed upon and the erection of a house to live in was begun and in due time a sod home arose from the virgin sod of the prairie. Along with the building of their first sod home Cyrus and Elizabeth Archer were careful not to neglect their first duty of serving their God. Neighbors with their family of young children were living nearby and a Sunday School was started being held in the various homes round about.

In the meantime Cyrus Archer had felt the call to preach, "for necessity is laid upon me; yea woe is me, if I preach not the gospel." Soon the need of a church to worship in was beginning to be felt. Having no material or money or any means of obtaining either, this devout Christian couple selected a choice corner of their homestead and began the building of a sod church, the first church of any kind in that section of the country. It was a very humble building with dirt floors and the seats and the pulpit made of rough logs. The little sod church was built in 1880 and the homestead on which it was located is one mile south of Densmore on the former William Harrison farm. The exact location of the church was in the northwest corner near the present highway south of town.

In the mean time a railroad, the present one, was built a mile north and the little town of Densmore sprang up. A small frame school house was build just south of the railroad track, on land now owned by Leland Archer. In due time the sod church was abandoned and the place of worship was moved to the little white frame school house. The Missouri-Kansas Conference of the Free Methodist Church had been organized in 1870. What was known as the Norton District, covering the entire western end of the state became a part of that conference - the Densmore church eventually becoming one of the circuit.

In 1885 the first class was organized with the following persons, five in number, as charter members: Cyrus and Elizabeth Archer, Jacob and Elizabeth Archer and their daughter Emeline Archer, grandparents and mother of H. D. Archer of Densmore and Clyde Archer of Norton, and great-grandparents of Raymond Archer, a former teacher in the Densmore Grade School.

Cyrus and Elizabeth Archer were the parents of a large family of two girls and six boys of whom the best known to the present community was the late G. J. (Garfield) Archer.

For a number of years the school house was used as a place of worship and then it was determined to build a permanent church building of native limestone. So in 1902 or possibly 1903 work was begun on the new church, the first two loads of rock being hauled by G. J. Archer. Again Cyrus Archer was the director of the building of the church, but the entire community was interested and all helped in one way or another.

It might be of interest to note who some of the early pastors were: The first one there seems to be any record of was a man by the name of Woorley from Kirwin, Kansas. He came in his bare feet, carrying his shoes that he might have them to wear when he preached. He was followed by a United Brethren preacher by the name of Bisbee - the father of the lateCharlie Bisbee of Norton.

The Densmore Class had been on a circuit with another class but thru the years the interest was good and the church grew until it was large enough to be a circuit by itself and it became necessary to build a parsonage for the pastor. In the official minutes of September 2, 1909 it was ordered that a parsonage be built in the near future, a soliciting committee was appointed, the trustees were made a building committee and the parsonage was built. In a recent visit with Mrs. Adah Archer of Seattle, Washington, widow of the late G. J. Archer, she informed us that she was asked to be the architect to plan the building which is the present parsonage. The minutes of the official board meeting of November 2, 1909 reports the building completed except for painting. The Rev. Jesse Crawford and wife was the first pastor to occupy the new parsonage.

In time the little rock church became too small for the congregation and plans were made for the building of the present brick structure. Rev. J. T. Pyle was the pastor at this time and to him goes much of the credit for uniting the interest of the people of the community in getting the church built. He proposed a plan whereby a farmer might set aside an acre of more of his crop, the proceeds of which were to go the the expense of the church building - and a number of people used this method to determine their basis of giving.

At this time the Sunday School had grown until the records show close to 200 was the usual attendance, with a cradle roll of babies as high as 75 - but, about 40 on the roll was the average.

This church was built in 1930. In the spring of 1940 when the last and final note was paid off the mortgage was burned and it was dedicated with Bishop ______officiating.

Most of the older ones who were young people and children at the time these events took place have moved away or passed on from this life but the Free Methodist Church still stands as a stalwart beacon in the community to remind us that the God who honored the efforts of these humble pilgrims of the past, still is the same God and he will still honor and bless those who serve his with a whole heart.

"Behold that the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear."

PRAIRIE CHURCHES

I never saw high altars glow With stately candles white as snow, Nor listened to the golden sweep of organ music full and deep. But I have seen a little church Set in a clump of silver birch Beyond a wheat field, heard the strain Of children's voices sweet as rain, And breathed a prayer quiet as sod, Simple as daylight, knowing that God Who loves the gleaming sanctuary Loves little churches on a prairie.

Written in the mid '50's. Possibly 1959 (contributed by Rose French Gulick)

Telephone INterview with Glen Archer - Spring 1982, 19 Apr 1982 (Glen of Garfield,Cyrus,Ananias,MichaeZ, James I)

In 1803 , James Archer, lst moved out of west Virginia into Ohio, Noble Co. . His first wife was scalped by the Indians and killed. The second wife was a ) Lincicome, and they had 5 or 6 boys and about as many girls. Among their boys was Michael. Michael begat Ananias, my great grandfather. Ananias was the father of Cyrus. Cyrus was my grandfather. Cyrus married Elizabeth Bates. And in Noble Co., Ohio , in and around East Union, there were Miller's and Bates, Lincicome's and Archer.

Cyrus and Elizabeth bought an ox-team covered wagon and drove to Kansas in 1878
and homsteaded on the Solomen River. I own the land that they homesteaded and the land that they accumulated in Norton Co., Kansas. He called the township, West Union , because , as he told me in 1928, he sat behind those oxen lookin west, · thinking west- I had west on my mind. I come from East Union. I'll call it West Union. I was the second family here on the Solomon River in the Township. Your gran' mammy and me saw a curl smoke down yonder on the bank of the Soloman. we drove toward it. A young couple by the name of Densmore lived in a dugout. They were preparing their noonday meal. Your grandmammy and me drove down the valley - this was all prarie, virgin prarie , laced with wildflowers; there were no telephone posts, elevators, no railroad track- noth'ng but just virgin prarie with that little snake-like Solomon River wending its way down the valley. we 'stopped there and Mr. Densmore and I built ourselves a dugout up the river, about half a mile. So I said, "Granpa, let's go up now to where you had your dug-out. So we drove back into the village that he named Densmore after the young man who helped him build his first dugout. We were a mile south of the Soloman and he showed me on the south bank, a high bank probably about 100 feet high, where they had their dugout. But he said',"your grandmammy didn't like that northern exposure, sun never came in-too close to the river " He was afraid of river diseases, "Ohioer" as he called it. " So she made me go back to a hill back south and build a sod house ." So I said, "Let's go therer? And we drove over the river bridge and in less than an eight of a mile, turned left. And we got out through the fence, and we saw a mound on the sod prarie. That mound represented the walls that had caved in and now had grown over, looking a little like a grave site , only much larger. He stepped off 42 by 14 He said the door was in the east and the windows in the south. He pointed to a spot in the ground and said , · "Your pappy was born right there in 1880. There were two rooms, and we separated the rooms with something like a bed sheet or cloth. That was our sod house and that's where a number of the children were born, your uncles and aunts.

He was then, I suppose, 71 or 72, that was Cyrus, son of Ananias. That's my grandfather.

At Densmore, Kansas, there is an Archer Cemetery. Grandfather layed that out. The cemetery is two miles east of town. It was on Uncle Joe's farm. My grandfather and grandmother Archer lie there now. Some of their children lie there too. Ananias, son of Michael , is there too.

Somewhere along the way there was a Methodist revival that came into the county . About half of the Archer's went Protestant and about stayed Catholic. My grandfather became a Protestant cowboy preacher. He had six boys and two girls. They were all ordained ministers of the Methodist Persuasion. I gave my colleagues a building called the Archer Hall in memory of Cyrus and Elizabeth and their eight children, one of whom my father, Garfield Joseph (that name pretty will indicates the family persuasion, Garfield, Republican President and Joseph a leading character of the Bible. Republicism and the Bible arfe the two motivating interests) They settled in and around Densmore. Cyrus went out first. He was followed by his brother Joe.

My Grandfather was well to do. He owned 520 acres. He was never in debt. I own the farm that he homesteaded and developed in '78, and years after that I bought it in '45 from the heirs. There were 108 - over 108. It took me 7. years to get all the parcels together- quit claims- but I finally got it together I inherited 3/8 . 3/l08 ths, myself. Anyhow I have the Cyrus Archer ranch.

Q. which city is that? Camden , 0hio .He comes from... the man who came to Kansas somewhat after Cyrus Cyrus was the first one to arrive. Joseph came next. And then Freeman, Sherman and Taylor and Asbury followed.

Q. And that would be Asbury and Ananias? Yes Asbury and Ananias T1lly married John Snode who also came from Ohio .

My grandparents had 4 children who died in infancy- 2 sets of twins. 8 children 2 sets of twins, stones are in the Archer Cemetery. 2 mi East of Densmore on the Joe Archer farm

' Hazel (Literland)_Archer died in l981 in the Warm Springs Home, north of Seattle somewhere but, she is buried with Francis in California . Here son, Donald is the (rebursar?) of A Cal Tech. Donald lives in Arcadia, CA now .

Alamena is 18 mi N. of Densmore. My mother's people homesteaded there and built the bank. They are pretty prominent - Clarence Burnap layed out the cemetery. My grandfather built the first coffin he told me, " I had some nice white pine boards, no knots . I made this little coffin and lined it with your grandmothers discarded satin dress and we put the little ------ baby there and buried it in that cemetery. That was in 1883. Baby (Davis) was buried in Sept or August. His brother Ed built the bank or established the bank in Alamena and Scott and Chick were members of the board - all Burnaps - brothers, homsteaded on the Prarie dog . Mother used to ride a horse from Alameda to Densmore , 18 miles and I never opened a gate - no fenses . She used to chase the jackrabbits and cayotes if they would stay in front of her on the way down to teach the Archer school at Densmore. She fell in love with the eldest Cyrus Archer's son, Garfield Joseph who just finished the grade school . They married and started out as tenant farmers, moved to Densmore and built a lumber yard, had a grain elevator . They asked him to run for governor but he refused . He said that he did not want to wear any man's collar. Ada Maude Burnap - her father was Clarence Burnap. Of all my ancestors, Clarence was probably the best informed . He knew logrithéms He could draw beautifully . He taught me how to figure board feet before I ever went to school . He was a carpenter and cabinet maker . He was a well driller . He was so precise and particlar in his write; he was all self taught . He knew Socrates and Plato . The Archers didn't know anything except church and the' Republican party and death and life . But Clarence Burnap was a man of some intellecutal grasp . He was quite a remarkable man. My grandmother on my mother's side, Theresa Burnap I never knew . She died before I was born. She was an aristocractic Englishwoman. My mother was an aristocrati She was a lace woman in a calico community . She had my somewhat my father's and grandfather's, interest in old literature, and think it came from Theresa.

Drowned 4 Jul 1881, Source: News clipping, Dorthea (Tanner) Brown 1993 Report says that two men and boy were drowned at the bridge, in the Mo. River, on the night of the Fourth. The bridge watchman declares he saw three persons get into an old unused skiff, that was leaky and attempt to cross the river. Soon after cries of help were heard and the darkness prevented his seeing the final result but as no trace of their landing on the Iowa side can be found the presumption is ;that whoever they were they are drowned. On Tuesday another report said that Charlie Graves, Shared Graves and one of Dr. Raney's boys at Rock Bluffs were missing and it was thought they might be the parties. At this writing we have not been able to verify this account. We cannot trace the drowning of anyone to any certain source. The Graves boys and the Raney boy are at home safe. We have seen Mr Johnsen, Mr Micklewait and every one that ought to know about this; only one thing is certain; some one was in the river clinging to an old boat on the 4th about nine pm and shouting for help. A Bates boy from Rock Bluffs is said to be missing.

THE DROWNED BODIES SEEN

The bodies of the three men who were drowned the 4th of July night were seen on the 10th floating by Rock Bluffs; one of them Lemon Scott Bates, was discovered by Messrs, Byers, Bates, Case and Rainey and recovered. The other two were seen by Dr Rainey and other parties, who had no boat and were consequently unable to recover them. The Coroner was notified and a jury impanelled who rendered a verdict that the said Lemon Scott Bates came to his death by drowning in the Missouri River on the evening of July 4th 1881. Signed by the jury as follows: Jesse Hendricks, Thos Ellington, Wyett Hutcheson, A.J Graves, Robt Karnes, Sam'l E. Ca se. Attest: P.P. Gass, Coroner.

She arrived with a young son but took one look and married this man's neighbor (Nob Ledbetter). The next time he didn't take any chances but went to Portland and married the lady before she found out what he really was. A couple months later they had an argument and just to scare her he put some strychnine in his mouth. Alas to late he realized he'd swallowed some.

"Lee Alonzo Byers mother was Mary Elizabeth Graves, she married Joseph Byers." "Daddy Wood, and some of family lived in Grandpa and Grandma Bates's home after they passed away, the place was deeded to my father by my grandparents and father sold it. Daddy Wood was a fine old man and his children were nice. I don't know where any of them are now, but I think one of the Graves boys married a sister of Don Baker." "I believe Fred Patterson of Rock Bluff is related to Don Baker in some way." "I played with the Patterson kids many a time, they were real close to grandma and grandpa.Bates." "I can't tell you who Mahala Pearl Graves folks are or William Graves folks but they were awful good folks. She (Mahala Pearl Graves) wove carpets for my mother .

His son, Isaiah and Lora Ellen was back for the funeral on August 5, 1925.
Joseph Wood lived at Rock Bluff."

Mrs, Nettie Smith left us on that beautiful Sunday. Rather stately-abit stern at times-social standing nor statistics meant nothing to her. There was a certain pride that showed up along the years we knew her, and until her physical being slowed down-she was quick of step and proud to be able to care for her family. She liked pretty things, but never complained about what she didn't have. Source: Glenwood Opinion-Tribune, Fri Oct 12, 1979.

ALL IN THE FAMILY

Nettie Smith 99, but soon to be 100 holds up the birthday wishes she got from President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter, while sons, 71-year old Earl, left, and Philip, 74, show the family tree portrait a grandson gave Mrs. Smith. She will be 100 years old on Sunday. Mrs Smith lives with her sons in Pony Creek.

WOMAN TO CELEBRATE 100

On Sunday, Nettie Smith will be celebrating a special birthday-her 100th. Mrs Smith, Pony Creek, was born Jan 22, 1878 in Rock Bluffs, Ne. But unlike many who live to that age , Mrs Smith won't be alone Sunday. A relative, Hazel Parks, has come from Ogden, Utah to preside over a family dinner and open house from 2pm to 4pm for friends. Over the years, Mrs. Smith has accumulated quite a large family, one that includes five grandchildren, 26 great- grandchildren and 15 great-great grandchildren. Then there are her two sons, Philip, 74, and Earl, 71, both of whom she lives with. Even President Carter sent his wishes-and his wife to-with a card congratulating Mrs. Smith on her birthday. A grandson, Bill M. Smith, gave her a large family tree portrait, with all of her descendants on it. Mrs. Smith who was married at Plattsmouth, Neb., on Jan 31, 1897, survives her husband and four sons. And what does she want for her birthday? For herself, a roast beef dinner: and for friends who call , cake and instant coffee.

ISAIAH F. WOOD, living a few miles southeast of Blue Light post office, in Klickitat county, is a prosperous young farmer twenty-eight years of age, a native of the state of Nebraska . His father, Wiley Wood, was raised in Colorado, but when still a young man removed to Nebraska, where he followed farming as his principal occupation, although by trade he was a mason.. He is still living in the northern part of that state. Our subject's mother, Mary (Fifer ) Wood, a native of Ohio died in Nebraska when Isaiah was only thirteen years old. The subject of this article received his education in the common schools of Nebraska, then worked for a time as a farm hand there, but when still quite young he removed to Washington, locating in Klickitat county, where, for a year or so, he followed various occupations, part of the time being employed by Hans Tranberg. In the spring of 1899, he filed on a homestead three miles southeast of Blue Light Post office, where he has since made his home, devoting his time to the cultivation and improvement of his hundred and sixty acres of fine farming land. He is one of a family of twelve children, all of whom are still alive. His sisters, Mrs Ida Campbell, Mrs Ella Campbell and Mrs Dosha Carrell, Mary, Rose and Dovie and his brothers, Edgar and Samuel, reside in Nebraska. He has one brother, William, living near him in Klickitat county and one brother Clarence B, at Kennewick, Washington. In Political affairs, Mr Wood takes great interest being a active worker in the Republican party. To get a start financially has cost him a struggle, as it does almost all young men, but he is industrious and thrifty and possessed of qualities which win him esteem and respect and a promising future is his .

THE BACHLER FIRE

Shortly after one o'clock Thursday afternoon fire was discovered in Alex Bachler's barn on his farm 4 miles north of Thurman in the Dutch Hollow neighborhood. it appeared that the fire originated in the basement at the south side of the barn and owing to the strong south wind the fire was beyond control before discovered.
Mrs. Bachler and her daughter in-law, were in the house and the men had gone to the field to work. The women folks heard a roaring sound but thought it a car going by or driving in , but not seeing any one, they investigated and discovered the fire.
They tried to call the men, but Mr Bachler had seen the fire about that time and hurried in and tried to save what he could. Mrs. Turnbull saw the blaze and smoke also from the Britta in farm house north and she and Charles Tarpenning, Earl Brittian and Jay Briley hurried to the scene and did what they could, but the fire soon spread from the large barn to the corn cribs and implements sheds on the north and east and only a few pieces of machinery were saved.
Mr. Bachler was badly burned on hands, arms and face, trying to save some machinery. Mrs . Bachler whose health was poor anyway, was so overcome with the shock and worry over her husband that she collapsed and Dr. Miller was called before she could be relieved.
In the meantime Mr. Bachler, not knowing the condition of his wife had been hurried to Dr. Miller's office in Tabor and he being gone went to Dr. Roark, who dressed his burns, and he returned home.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Bachler are still in a serious condition, but hopes are entertained for their recovery.
The amount of damage cased by the fire is not known, but is a very large amount. One good horse was burned in the barn, also two calves and it is believed some hogs and chickens. Also about 1,000 bushels of ear corn, some hay and much farm machinery of all kinds. There were 27 small pigs in a shed and they were all destroyed.
The machinery is twisted and bent and the temper drawn by the terrific heat, so that they will be of little value even though the wood parts might be replaced. The barn was a very large structure with basement below the regular floor and also had a large hay mow, and could house many head of stock in addition to the hay and grain. The loss is only partly covered by insurance. (Newspaper and date unknown)

When about one year old she, with her parents, came to Kansas and settled near Densmore, In the year 1897 she was married to W. M. Patton. Mrs. Patton was keenly interested in the betterment of humanity. After spending a few years in school work she turned her attention to writing and even during her sickness wrote a number of inspiring and helpful articles. Just few days before her death, and the last time she took her pen in hand. she wrote an excellent tribute to her mother. For a number of years she was president of her local W. C'. T.

Four years ago Mrs. Patton was stricken with a cruel stroke of paralysis, and suffered almost constantly during that time, but through it all she was cheerful and encouraged and was an inspiration to those who came to visit her. When able to be out, she called on. and prayed with, her neighbors. During her last conscious moments, she was greatly encouraged in the Lord and sought to encourage those who were with her. She was preceded in death by an infant brother, another brother, Freeman, and her father, the late Rev. Cyrus Archer, who went to be with Jesus just two months ago.

Barbara E Gibson, daughter of George Cleveland Bates and Lucy Ellen Kivett, was born on March 22, 1916, at Nehawka. She graduated from the Weeping Water High School and July 3,1935 was united in marriage to Harlan A Gibson at Glenwood, Iowa.

During the long period of recuperation she helped Pastor Campbell by doing secretarial work. For many years she served on the Doane College Scholarship Commitee of the Congregational church of which she was a member. She was always much interested in all activities and events of the college from which her son graduated. With her father-in-laws illness, she went to work in the grocery store of which she and her husband became co-owners, and took charge of the book work and much of the ordering. She loved her garden and flowers, but these had to be given up; however she continued to read widely, both novels and news and was always well informed as to what was going on. Perhaps her most abiding interest was her son Richard and his family. Mrs Gibson died Sunday Jan 25. She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Shirley. Survivors are her husband; son Richard of Des Moines and daughter in law, Wanda; sister Mrs Opal Mae Hedden, of Ashland, and three grandchildren, Sheryl, Kim and Tracey.
