William H. Gates (1858-1926) came from Pennsylvania in 1888, and went on the Dawson Gold Rush of 1898. In 1900, he had a furniture store in Nome, Alaska. He and Rebecca (1867-1933) lived in Seattle in the early 1900's where his daughters, Pearl and Florence, partook in the rarified atmosphere of young Seattle socialites. Their son, William Gates, Jr. was born in 1891, daughter Pearl Gates in 1895, and Florence Gates who married Harry Schumacher on October 22, 1913. He became a city councilmember in Bremerton.
