|Birth: ||Oct. 30, 1915|
|Death: ||Oct. 30, 1916|
Firstborn son of Solomon Lee Bates and Mary Vernetta Peterson Bates. Died at birth. My great-uncle, brother to my grandmother, M. Helen Bates Reade. I can find no more information on him.
My profound thanks to Lorraine & Darline Simmons for discovering where he is buried, especially since it was an unmarked grave!
On September 30, 2012, I received the following information from Lorraine Simmons:
"Thanks to an EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT, the grave for Lewis Bates is no longer unmarked."
To the Eagle Scout responsible, I wish to express my fervent thanks for his thoughtfulness in choosing to do this as part of his project.
