The Otsego Farmer

January 11, 1895

Samuel Bates, late of Oneonta, died last week at the home of his daughter in Worcester, after a few days illness, aged about 70 years. Mr. Bates was born in Washington County, and was one of eight children. One brother, Jonathan, survives him. Samuel Bates came to this county with his parents when about 20 years of age, and soon after married a daughter of the late Moses Rich, Esq., then a prominent business man in this vicinity. He bought from the Rowers tract a farm and commenced to clear and improve it; he built a home where his son, Frank, now lives. By industry and economy he succeeded inlaying by a competence of this world's goods, and in 1865 he took out a life insurance policy for $5,000, paying an annual premium of $222.75, amounting at the time of his death to something more than $9,000. --- Mr. and Mrs. Bates brought up a family of six children, whom I think are all surviving. After the death of his first wife, which occurred several years ago, Mr. Bates married Miss DeEtte Waters, and most of the time since they have lived at Oneonta. Mr. Bates was long known as a kind neighbor and a good citizen. He was a member of the Martial band, and active in the Methodist church. In earlier years he love the fox chase, fishing and other sports, and in all he was a Christian gentleman. The funeral and Interment took place at Westville, the past of the church at Worcester officiating.
