RE: george rezac
I can only add parents and spouses to a memorial. You can add George as a father to Blanche by clicking Edit on her memorial, then Relationship, put George's memorial number in the father space and click submit.

Hi Sharon! I just happened across one of your relatives while looking at Cates in Cass County. This is where I live! If I had only known.. relatives in P. Hill. I really haven't made any significant progress in figuring out the family but keep trying - hope you are well.

RE: Marvin Cates
I looked on Find A Grave and I can not read it and I do not keep the photos. His death certificate is too old to show up in Missouri Archives as I looked, the only thing is for someone to go back and retake the photo.

RE: John Calvin Cates Sr
Would it be possible for you to send me a family group sheet for you father, mother, you and your siblings. I only have him married to emma Painter with one child. I guess I got this from Joyce. I would love the picture of you, Joyce and the others. Isn't it sad that family drift away so quickly. Ours did also.

Hi Sharon,
How do I do that, I've never done that before?
The child he had with Emma Painter would be Ernest LeRoy Cates. I think I saw that Ernest was born in 1915 and died in 1999.
Yes it is so sad but I'm hoping it's temporary. They need me as much as I need them.

RE: John Calvin Cates Sr
I have that Benjamin Cates b-1727-1730 D-12-02-1798 and Mary Ann no dates was the parents of John Calvin Cates Sr. No proof.
Who was your father?
We are related by John Calvin Cates, Sr. and Mary harrington.
My line with their child Jacob M (H) Cates and your line with Charles Cates and Nancy Willis.
I show that Charles died 01-22-1885 (this date was not on your above e-mail).
I have a good friend Joyce Cates Coble who was the daughter of Edwin Farnsworth Cates. Edwin was the son of Moore Edward Cates. Do you know her and where I can get ahold of her? I can't find my address book since moving.

The Benjamin Cates I have was born 1704 and died 1798 and was a Sr. I also have a Benjamin "jr" who was born 1730 and no known death date.
My father was Paul William Cates 2/17/1893 - 6/1/1963 m Ola Mae Welch/Welsh born 5/1/1914 (they were 1st cousins).
Joyce is my 1st cousin, her father Edwin and my father Paul were brothers. For the record their father was Edward Moore Cates 8/25/1855 - 5/29/1934.
I had met Joyce and one of her sisters (Vivian) down in Woodland, California during the Scottish Games 1993/94, stayed in touch briefly and then never heard from her again. I can send you the one photo I have of Joyce, Sally, myself, and a friend of the family...Fred. I'd have to send it to you via your personal email address. I received a cute email from Vivian and then never heard from her again.
That's cool that we're related, we're also related to June Ford and Victoria "Vicky" Durand.
Sorry I couldn't help more.
I'm working on Family Search and Ancestry, and 23andMe.

RE: james m
No, I'm not related to Jim O'Dell, he and Clarice were friends of ours. As are their kids, Larry, Mike and Stephany. If you are related, or a friend of the family, I will transfer the Memorial to you.

I seen your very old message on Eddys Fay Hartman Hunt that you left for Bonnie Myers (#46851322), do you still need answers after all this time, I can give them to you if you want. The Hartman family that Eddys belongs to is my grandmother's family in Michigan.

Regards Juliane
