Judge James L. Bates (1815-1890)

Looking for descendants of Judge James L Bates, author of "Memorial to the Bates Family", pub. 1888. In it he states he is in possession of Rev. War citations and musket of Sgt. (Deacon) Samuel Handy, father of Naomi who married Stephen Bates, Judge Bates's parents. I am a descendant of Samuel Handy and am looking for any info re the whereabouts of these items.
