I am a decendent of martha Astin who married Samuel bates in Pittsbyslvinia Co., Va. in 1793. Per information found in Thomas A Valentine's Book "Astin And Allied Families" p13. They both died in Greene Co., Ga. before 1820. I am searching for additional information on their Ancestry and posterity. Samuel bates' Will made in 1803 is recorded in Rockingham Co., N C. Apparently they moved to Greene Co., Va some time after this Will was recorded. So far I have been unable to find where or when or if the Will was ever probated. Their son, Nathaniel Bates, who is my gggreat-grand father, was born in Virginia about 1796 or 1797. would appreciate in additional information anyone has.
