I've been at a dead end for over 10 years on Charles Batis and taking new angles on this one.
I have a Charles Batis in Augusta Co., VA in the 1800s. Alot of his descendants moved onto Denton Co., TX. In the 1860 Burkes Mill, Augusta Co., VA Census is a Mary Rady in the household. Here is the listing:
1860 Burkes Mill, Augusta Co., VA Census Entry 1356 1361 Charles Batis, Sr. age 66 Maryland Sallie Batis age 61 Maryland Charles Batis, Jr. age 8 Virginia Mary Rady age 65 Virginia Ezekial Goen age 23 VirginiaDumb & Deaf
I don't know what the connection is. In 1850 she is in the following census listing:
1850 2 1/2 District, Augusta Co., VA Census, p. 351 Entry -40 453 Betsy Wilson age 78 Ireland Mary Rady age 54 Virginia
I have a hunch Betsy Wilson is related to Charles Batis also.
Just reading the messages on the Ready family of Augusta Co., VA here on the list with John Ready b. 1796 moving to Denton Co., TX makes me wonder if the Batis family followed.
