Does anyone show a connection between WILEY and BATES, HESTER, or LOYD in either Northern KY or VA prior to 1800? I show a Wiley Bates, born abt. 1782 and lived in the Boone Co., KY area until moving sometime between 1820 and 1830 to Schuyler Co., IL. He was a shoemaker and died in Schuyler Co. IL in 1830. Wiley may have been married to a GLACKIN, and seems to have had 2 daughters and 3 sons: Wiley Loyd, James, and Charles. The last two boys were left orphans and taken in by James McKee in Schuyler Co. in 1830. Any help welcome!
