Welcome to my search for all those who came before me. I hope you turn out to be a
cousin and can share some information.
If not then I hope you become a friend.When I started this project in 2000 I
was in total awe at just how small the world actually is. I have found people across the continent that know people here in
the town I live in and I have found places where I learned I knew a few of the people residing there.
It is my hope to
bring all of my relatives from the past to life again through this site.
I will be updating and changing this as I find
new information. I hope you enjoy your visit.
I am a widow, living in Wisconsin. In Jan 2000 I found out I had cancer. This meant almost a year off work with what to do?
Those who know me well know how hard that was going to be for me to sit still. That is when I decided to follow my ancestorial
trail and see where it took me.I have since gotten my sister "hooked" on the trip.
This is a work in progress,
so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.
In memory of the lives lost and the people missing as a result of the act of terrorism. Now is the time for us all to stand
together and be the great country we are. Our hearts weep in unison for the the many dead and injured and the loved ones they

I have had the most wonderful
gift given to me. My cousin Terry gave me the missing link I have looked for for over 5 yrs. Alonzo's parents names and his
birthplace. Here he had it all this time and all I had to do was ask!!
So, My search for The Bates line is pretty well
Alonzo's parents were Otis and Anne ( Barrows or Barrus) Bates. Otis's father was Daniel and his was Samuel,
then Edward, Edward, and Elder Edward Bates of Weymouth. The Daniel Bates family can be found in the Cummington 1790 census
records along with his father Samuel and several cousins.
It all falls into place once you know the missing piece. How
many times had my sister and I looked at that family and said gee it sure looks like that is the one. Now, according to the
information given to me by Terry, Alonzo had a brother named Otis and one named Admithy and a sister named Ann. According
to the Bates Association bulletins, Daniel had sons, Daniel, Nathan, Samuel, Otis, George and Alanson. Sisters named Susannah
and Sally. The information also said Alonzo was born in Cummington. His father died someplace between Massachusettes and Ohio.
His mother remarried Chester Packard and they moved to Wisconsin in 1852. Lots still needs to be found, like how did Alonzo
end in Canada to marry his wife, did his brothers also go to Canada? or Michigan where Alonzo and his family lived for 5 yrs
before going to meet with his Mother in Wisconsin? If anyone can shed some light on this I would be ever so greatful.
