Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am fulfilling a wish for my father. He was always interested in his past but had no way of finding a lot of information. Unfortunately he died without knowing his history. I have been working on this for several years and have just recently came across this site and found some wonderful information. I will continue this quest for my loving father. If he was alive today with the internet and all the resources now he would be so happy. His father was Samuel Langston Bowman and his mother was Lillian Mae Coats. So to honor my father I will not give up.

I have also started working on genealogy for my whole family including my husbands side of the family. I am not interested in numbers I only want to make sure that the information is correct and families are linked to their loved ones.

Happy Hunting!!!

Benjamin Harrison Coats and Marie Whalen Korth Coats
Hi Donna,
Can you transfer Marie Whalen Korth Coats and Benjamin Harrison Coats to me? I have no idea what that entails but they are my grandma and grandpa and I would like to manage them.
Thank you!

Pauline maiden name
Pauline was my aunt - her maiden name was Coats - I think that photo is of Pauline and her brother William? My dad and his twin sister are younger siblings to Pauline and they were born when William/Bill and Pauline were grown up (1931 in Oregon to Benjamin Harrison Coats and wife Marie.
Sadly, the twins never met Bill and Pauline.
Great photo! Thank you so much for posting it!

Lillie Mae (Lillian) Coats
Hi Donna,

I may have information for you - do you have an email address as I prefer not to post publicly. I don't get here often but I can try to check back over the next day or so. I'm not sure how much you've found on your own but if I can help, I will!

RE: John Coats
It sounds like your John W. Coats and my John W. Coats are 2 different people. Maybe distant relation. This is the line I am trying to find more information on.

RE: John Coats
The license is from Lafayette County, MO. It is dated 22 March 1864 and this John W. Coats married Sophia Campbell. Does any of this information ring a bell? The pastor was names A. A. Moore.

John Coats
Let me rephrase, if he married a Sophia Campbell then that's the license I have a copy of. I found it on before I verified if he was my relation or not.

RE: John W. Coats
What was John's wife's name and where did they get married? If they got married in Carrollton, MO I have a copy of their marriage license if you want it.
