Don I know your post was 1999 so you may not read this post.
But in case. I want you to know that the bateman family member's are not ignoring you. We are just so busy trying to sort out the family that we have not been able to answer anyone. Please give me your family information,date's
birth.death,location,ect. And i will be happy to see if we
are related. Then i will try to give you some information as
to the connection if i can. But be patient because the bateman's in this family date to 16th century. And believe me a lot of heing and sheing produced hundred's of family's and offspring. 8 and ten or more in some family's.And don't forget the name's change. I have a Migraine already. Ted
