I wonder if S. Mendenhall or anyone else who has a copy of the History of the Coats and Related Families book would look up something for me. According to the Family History Library Catalog notes, this book mentions several Coates families that came to the Virginia colony between 1664-1668. Unfortunately, the book is not available on film. I'd like to know the names of the heads of those Coates families. I have traced my Coates line back to a Samuel Coates who appears on the rent rolls in Essex County, VA in 1704. I am curious about whether he was the original immigrant. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
