He was a son of the late John Bates, and was reared to manhood in the Beaver sections of Knott and Floyd counties, and a grand-son of James Bates, the first of this family name to settle in Letcher county. He was a first cousin of John W. Wright Sr., who is now a resident of Pound, Va. The old Bates homestead was at the mouth of Boonesfork. It was established there in 1807 and remained in the family name until about twenty-five years ago. The great mountain giant Martin V. Bates was an uncle of the deceased. Uncle Bob Bates leaves a widow and a number of children, all of whom are grown, and a large circle of relatives and friends all over Eastern Kentucky. He was an admirable and well liked man. The remains were interred near his home on Thornton and in the presence of a large assembly of relatives and friends. The Eagle offers sympathies.
