I am researching the family of Elihu and Elizabeth Parr Bates who came to Autauga County, Alabama from Richland, South Carolina around 1860. Their children were Emma Louisa, William Jefferson, Whiteford Smith, Alonzo Wiggins, Austin Benjamin, Oscar Elihu Randolf, Theodore, Alice Minerva, Jessie Eugenia, and Whitford. Emma Louisa and her sister Alice married two brothers: Thomas Taylor and George Washington Taylor respectively. Emma also married Reuben Joshua Bishop. Alonzo Wiggins Bates became sheriff of Bibb County, Alabama. If you have any information about this family I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
