Francis Maryland "Marion" Bates

Francis Maryland "Marion" Bates

Classification: Query
Surnames: Bates, Waller
My grandmother was Tennie Bates the daughter of William Thomas Bates and granddaughter of Francis Marion Bates. This Francis Marion Bates had a brother named Christopher; mother named Mary Polly Bates. It appears that both brothers were illegitimate. When the boys were young, Mary Polly Bates married Egbert O. Waller, but both boys kept their mother's last name. Some believe that Christopher's father was Indian but we do no know his name as far as I know. Does anyone out there know the name of Francis Marion Bates' father or Christopher's?

Do you know who Mary Polly Bates's parents were? Was she born in Ohio? If it's the same person I have her ancestry, we might be able to help each other find more of her descendants.

My Mary Alice "Polly" Bates was born 1818 in Louisiana and died around 1851. I do not know who her parents were. It is so weird how I keep running into a brick wall with this one. Thanks for being willing to help, though. Good luck with your searches.

Thanks, too bad not the same. We both have brick walls with the Bates family, maybe some day we'll break it down. Good luck to you, too.

Wow! After all this time, I have a connection. I am so excited. I don't like to bother people on the weekend, but will call you early next week. I will be happy to pay for the costs of copying and mailing the information. This is a great Christmas present.
