SEEKING TRUTH AND FAIR TREATMENT FROM THE DAR

SENT TO DAR
HONOR WAR RECORD OF REUBEN BATES SR OF LOUISA CO., VA

Proof has been provided, the last hurdle has been cleared,
honor the War Record of Reuben Bates Sr. (1731-1800).

Rev. War Soldier Reuben Bates and ex officer William
Duval have been "paired-up" by Soldiers pay stub and
by the fact that they both lived in Louisa Co.; in year 1783,per Tax List.

RE-VISITING FAULTY REASONING BY THE DAR

Paragraph 5 of DAR letter, dated 3 Feb. 2011 to Suzanne
Witt Adrian in regard supplemental covering Reuben Bates, Sr. (1731-1800) of Louisa Co., VA.

QUOTE
"Unfortunately the supposition put forward by Mr. Bates
(Wayne Witt Bates) that the Mr. Duvall who received Reuben's
pay is not correct. Had Maj Duvall picked up Reuben's pay
he would have been identified as Maj Duvall.This is determined by looking in War Volume 4 - the original source of the information.

FAULTY REASONING
HOW COULD IT BE DETERMINED FROM LOOKING AT THE SOURCE

THE SOURCE - WAR VOL. 4 PAGE 94
Bates, Reuben - Soldier of the Infantry - paid by Mr. Duval on March 4,1783 - 36.0.0

THE FACTS - FROM PAGE 3 OF PENSION S8362

YEAR 1783
Ex officer William Duval and Mister Duval were one and
the same. He lived in Louisa Co. from 1781 until October
1783. The above Soldier pay stub (War Vol. 4) "paired- up"
Reuben Bates with ex officer William Duval, They were
neighbors in Louisa Co. Both are listed on the 1783 TAX List for Louisa Co. In 1783, William Duval was the only Duval on the Tax List

OFF TOPIC, BUT INTERESTING
1. DAR Chapter named for son of ex officer William Duval
2. Duval Co., Florida named for son of ex officer Wm. Duval
3. Duval Co., Texas named for Burr H. Duval, who was killed by Mexicans at Battle of Goliad, TX. Gtandsons of
ex-officer William Duval fought in the Texas Revolution.
