PIONEER BATES FAMILY



1. SAMUEL BATES was born in England 24 Jan 1796. They immigrated to this country in 1831 with their three young sons William Fairhall, Charles Henry, and Samuel Isaac aged nine, six and two respectively. They originally settled in Montgomery County, possibly near St. Johnsville where the remainder of their children were born. According to Child's Gazetteer of Jefferson County, in 1841, the family settled in Jefferson County in Lyme, soon to become Cape Vincent. Also according to the same document, their son James J was born in Cape Vincent in 1839. The federal census of 1840 places them in Jefferson County. At one time Samuel and family owned and farmed 500 acres on the main shore and Fox Creek and 300 acres on Fox Island. He died in 1874 and is believed to be buried in Bates Cemetery in Cape Vincent, Jefferson County.

He married in England
SARAH MARIA CAMPBELL, the daughter of WILLIAM CAMPBELL of Kent, England. Maria was born in 1800 and died in 1867 and is believed to be buried in Bates Cemetery. Four of their children were born in England, one of which died at approximately 21 days old and was buried in Peasmarsh, E. Sussex England. We are including the Bible record of the births of the children, which we usually do not do, because of its interest:
