This site is dedicated in loving memory of our parents, Edgar Alfred BATES and Terrill Viola MILES.

With the help of my sister, Betty and many genealogy friends I have met via the internet, we have compiled over 40 years of research into this site. However, please note that this is still a work in progress and not all facts have been documented at this time.

Our "brick wall" is with our ancestor, DANIEL STAPLES BATES. We have documented his death but have been unable to prove his parentage. Years of research have uncovered no documentation of his birth. I have my hunches, but we all know how dangerous that can be!

Although my focus has been on my direct line of the Bates family, I do have some documented information on the collateral lines also.

Within these pages, you will find several families lines: BATES, MILES, RUDY, KLEY, CADY, FAXON, OMAN, RUDY, SAGE, STAPLES, ECKERT, and RESINGER just to name a few.

I hope you enjoy your visit here.

Thank you for stopping by.
