Hiram Cates was born in Bedford Co., TN in 1814. I am searching for his parents and siblings. Also any information about his children. I have quite a bit of information about his children, from his marriage to Mary Caroline Neal, but not from another marriage, which he also had several children.
Be glade to share what information I have with anyone.

I would like to know how I might obtain the
Cates Book. I've look every where. My direct
line is with James who went to Maine but we are all indirectly related.
This is thur the 4 Brothers that came to N.H. then John and Joseph went south
William stayed in N.H. This was in c1635.
My folk lore says that they came from first Scotland. Cates
Kates and there was a Roy Kates that was part of the Blackwatch under a bigger clan.
They were not English then and some did go to Ireland as
well. I'm very interested in finding where I can get the book. Thanks.

Surnames: Cates, Baldridge
My 3rd great grandmother is Mary Loraine Baldridge. My information had my CATES going through her husband, William James ROGERS. I came across something on the message boards that says Loraine's mother was Elizabeth CATES and her grandfather was Pleasant CATES. Can you shed any light on this?
