I have been doing my family history which involves the Bates, Blanchard (my mother's side), Ainslie and Montigny (my father's side) families. My mother was wondering if I had learned anything about her brother's children. Her brother's name was Warren Emerson Bates. He was born on August 27, 1919 in Whitman, Massachusetts. He married Norma and they moved out to California. They had two boys Todd and Kriss. They divorced and Warren moved back to Massachusetts. Norma wanted to change the boys last name but Warren would not allow it. He passed way on January 19,1969 at the age of 49. Not sure if Norma changed the boys last name after Warren passed away. Would love to know what happened to the boys.
