My husbands g-g-g-grandfather was Thomas Ates.
He was born somewhere in TX on 10 Mar 1829.
We know he left TX when he was 10 by himself
and settled in Santa Rosa Co. Florida. I am
having a hard time finding his parents. Could
use as much help as possible. He may have
changed his name from Yates to Ates or possibley
Yeates to Ates.
