I pray that you and I are looking for info on the the same James M. Bates b.1877 in Letcher Co KY. If so I think he is the 1/2 brother to my grandmother Hortense Lee. Is he the son of Henry C Bates and Rachel Lee and was he a sherriff and died in Crowder Oklahoma? Even if he is not my grandmother's half brother they lived in the same house in 1880.
See here:

1880 Letcher Co KY Census
#328 Bates Henry C. 35 K K K farmer
Rachel 37 V V V
Marget 06 K K V see Margret's birth record Letcher KY mother's name is Rachel Lee
James M. 03 K K V
Belle D. 12/1879 <1 K K V
Bates John 27 K K K
Martha 25 K K K sister
James 17 K K K brother
* Lee Hortence 19 V V V servent (or stepdaughter?)
Irven 12/1879 <1 K K V boarder

I know Hortense is listed as a servant here but I think this is because it is her occupation. Hortense's 1861 birth record in Russell Co VA lists her mother as Rachel Lee.

Oh I hope this is the same family as yours
