Efforts are underway to compile a history of the life of William Bates (d. 1811), sometimes referred to as William of Wythe (VA), or the WW line in Bates Family of Old Virginia organization and newsletter. This work consists of a 100+ document at this time. I hope to include accurate information on the many descendants of William and Margaret Young Bates. If you would like to share information you have on the child from whom you descend, please e-mail Jerry Brooks, address below, and discuss how the information might be best shared. I am especially interested in knowing what, if any, documentation may exist to support Margaret Bates and John Wallis Bates being children of William and Margaret Young Bates since neither are identified as children in his will. I hope to identify a researcher for each of the children of William and Margaret Young Bates.
