Ancestors of Curt Kates

About Our Family Research

I am collecting information on all my children's ancestors. I interviewed my granparents in 1978, and did a little genealogical work in the early 80s. The family of Kates has been traced to Civil War veteran Elisha Kates, who was with the 16th Missouri Infantry, CSA out of Bentonville, Arkansas. I believe Elisha came from Tennessee or Kentucky, but was illiterate so there is some confusion in the Census records.

Other family names include Barnes, Randall, Hancock, Ryan, Swope, Mountford, Moore, Walker, Smith, Friday, Revis, Buzbee, Roberts, Stuckey, Hooper, Perry, Theriot, Viator, Rush, Mercer, Sullivan, Jones, Whittington, Simmons and Bigge.

Many of these families came from the Carolinas through Georgia and Mississippi to Arkansas and Louisiana. Some came through Maryland and Kentucky to Missouri and on to Indian Territory and Texas.
