Newberry Co--1801 Michael Bates' Will Dist. of Orangeburg--1800-Andrew Bates' Will Dist. of Edgefield--1825 Catherine Bates' Will
Andrew could not have possibly been the son of this Michael & Catherine since he is named (not deceased) in both wills which appeared after his was recorded.
Was this Andrew possibly the brother of this Michael and both were the sons of Michael B. & his wife Catherine?Trying to sort them out. I descend from Everett Bates, son of Andrew & Elizabeth Green.Everett & 2 brothers, Wilson & Barney came to LA.Barney settled in Bienville Parish, Wilson in Natchitoches Par. & Everett in Winn Parish.
