The genealogy of the Bates family of Cherokee County, Georgia is traced back to Charlton Bates and Nancy Kelly (O'Kelly) Bates, who are first mentioned living in South Carolina in 1812. Through DNA testing, we know that our family has a ancestor blood-related to James Shockley Bates. The authors think Charlton Bates may have been the brother of James Shockley Bates.
The descending lineage mentioned in this book are David Ward and Nancy Martin, Thomas F. Bates and Sarah Elizabeth Ward, Savannah Bates and Alexander Newton Smith, and Lemuel Harris Bates and Lillian Margaret Smith. Many of the children and extended family members of these family heads are mentioned and more than 200 photos document the journey.
This book also contains some history of the Cherokee and Hall Counties of Georgia as remembered by the Bates family who lived in the area.
Jenny Bates Meadows-Sauls and Yvonne Mauldin Perry worked together on this book for more than a year after Jenny had already spent about five years researching the genealogy. Jenny was raised by the second, third, and fourth generations of ancestors mentioned in the book.
