J.B.(Jay) Bates, son of Lem and Lillie Smith Bates

J.B.(Jay) Bates was born in 1913. J.B. was the son of Lem Bates and Lillie Smith-Bates. This photo was taken in the early 1920's next to a relative's car.  Jay's first car in the thirties was  a T-model.

J.B. married Lois Sims on October 4, 1932.  The couple met in a mule and wagon at New Home Baptist Church. They had 4four children: Sarah, Jenny (the co-author of Oh, Come, Angel Band ~ The History of the Georgia Family Descending from Charlton and Nancy Bates), Jennevy (b. 1939) and Blanche (b. 1941). Jennevy and Blanche both died at birth.
