The authors, in the foreword, write as follows: "the initial undertaking was precisely as indicated by title of this brochure; but, in developing that project, we encountered a medley of collateral information....The product which we apologetically submit is a mixed mass of genealogy, biography, and documentation, which defies orderly presentation....Perhaps our endeavor would be more appropriately titled SOME DESCENDANTS OF CLEMENT BATES, COLONIST OF COHASSET, MASSACHUSETTS."

Clement Bates was baptized at Lydd, England in 1595. He and his wife, Ann, had six children, 1621-1639. The family immigrated to America and settled at Hingham, Massachusetts, in 1635. He died in 1671. His great grandson, David Bates, was born in 1698 at Hingham, Massachusetts, the son of Caleb Bates. He married Patience Farrow, daughter of William and Patience Tower Farrow, in 1719 at Boston. They had eleven children, 1719-1745. Descendants listed lived in Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Iowa, and elsewhere.

A descendant, Mildred Olive Bates, was born in 1881 near Casey, Iowa. She married William R. McCann in 1913 at Ancon, Canal Zone, Panama. They had three children, 1915-1921, born in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Massachusetts. In 1963 she was living at Hopewell, Virginia.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
