Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 1970 at age 16 I started a family tree for the Bates and Watson families. There was no internet of course. The Bates line came to a dead end due to a published mistake on the name of mt 4th Great grandfather. When I retired in 2005 I had lots of time to spend on the internet. I discovered that my GGGG Grandfather was Johann Nikolaus Batz 1754-1811 not a ficticious Eliakim Bates. With the help of others,I was led me back to church records from 1640 to the marriage of my 7th Great Grandparents in Germany

Pine Grove Cemetery
Hi Lee. I found on the death certificates that Edward James Bates' daughter Margaret and her husband James Kennedy are buried here. Do you have a picture?

You're welcome, Lee. Cambridge Cemetery is well-maintained, but the Drady gravestone was completely hidden by grass and weeds. No more!

RE: Fleming
Hi Lee;
I found the headstone yesterday when I was up. There are 4 sides to the headstone with writing on all sides. The headstone is very hard to read and Elizabeths inscription is unreadable. I took several photos of it but none were clear enough to read. Sorry :)
Dave is my uncle!!!
