My Bates family history has clouded my mind for years. I stumbled upon this forum and I hope it was not accidental. I do not have dates but in the process of putting it together.

My great grandfather was named, Miles Bates, born in osceola, AR. My grandfather was named James Bates, birth unknown. His mother, possible Native American, called Bear. He married my grandmother, Buella Macklin, of Henning or Ripley, Tn. That relocated to Mound City, Il and later Decatur, il, until death 1996 and1997. My father is Jimmie Lee Bates, born 1941. My father speaks of a Himes Bates. We are African American and possible native American.
