In Reply to: Re: DAR Evaluated - 43 Statements Pro and Con - Source Washington Post Newspaper by Anthony McPherson of 18096

You miss the point, just asking the DAR to abide by their
own rules and honor the documented, repeat documented, War
Record of Reuben Bates Sr.

Below is their inept taunting research as they ignore the
documented War Record

REMEMBER HIS WAR RECORD
"Bates, Soldier of the Infantry - paid by Mr. Duval on March 4, 1783-

"MISTER DUVAL IDENTIFIED
Per page 3 of pension No. S8362, ex-officer William Duval was one andthe same as Mister Duval, who lived in Louisa Co., VA from 1781 until October 1783, and thereby was the Mister Duval who picked-up the soldier pay due Rev. War Soldier Reuben Bates. Further, Mister Duval was the only Duval in Louisa Co. in 1783, per Tax Records.-

-EXAMPLE OF INEPT TAUNTING RESEARCH BY DAR ILLUSTRATE BELOW


Example -DAR Mishandling of a Membership Application Posted by: Wayne Witt Bates (ID *****7673)       Date: May 08, 2011

SEE TRANSCRIPT BELOW
DAR Application – Rev. War Soldier Reuben Bates (1731-1800) of Louisa Co.,VA.
-(PROVED BY PAGE 94 OF LISTING WAR VOL. 4)

SERVICE RECORD
"Bates, Reuben - Soldier of the Infantry - paid by Mr. Duval on March 4, 1783 - 36.0.0

"TRANSCRIPT - QUOTING DAR
Perception of the DAR Genealogists Addressed–Short Version--
____________________________________
(DAR 3 Feb 2011)
”you have nothing that links Reuben (Junior) to Reuben (Senior)"...”

(Bates 16 Feb. 2011)
above said In the face of 3 items that linked Reuben to Reuben.
(Bible page - Statement from Junior – DNA Confirmation)
______________________________________________
-(DAR 3 Feb. 2011)
DAR conjured up “potential fathers” for Reuben Bates Jr., but didn’t name them

DISCUSSION:
Took some 3 weeks to obtain names of the “potential fathers, but took only two minutes to disown them. They were from Loudoun Co., not Louisa Co
-------------------------------------------------------
-(DAR 3 Feb. 2011)
“The other Bates family members found in the same list (War Vol. 4)are from Culpeper Co. not Louisa.”

(Bates 16 Feb. 2011)
Not so.“This Bates was Rev. War Soldier James Bates (1762-1825) of Louisa Co. not Culpeper Co

.Page 100 War Vol. 4
Bates, James – Soldier of Infantry – pd by himself – 18 Aug 1783 – 17.0.0
Bates, James – Soldier of Infantry – pd by himself – 18 Aug 1783 – 49.10.10-
------------------------------------------------------------
-(DAR 3 Feb. 2011)
“Unfortunately the supposition put forward by Mr. Bates that Mr. Duvall who received Reuben’s pay he would have been identified as Maj. Duvall.”

(Bates 16 Feb. 2011).
”It’s reasonable,, not unfortunate, that in 1783 two years after the War,that Maj. Duvall was referred to as Mister Duvall, who was a taxpayer in Louisa Co. the residence of Rev. War Soldier Reuben Bates,SR.

DISCUSSION:
Later sent DAR proof that Mister Duval, who picked up pay due Reuben Bates Pay in 1783, was the only Duval in Louisa Co. in year 1783

THE TRUMP
Pension No. S8362 proved that ex-officer William Duval was one andthe same as Mister Duval, who lived in Louisa Co from 1781 until October 1783, and thereby, was the Mister Duval who picked-upthe soldier pay due Reuben Bates-
---------------------------------------------------------
(-DAR 3 Feb. 2011)
“We understand that this not the news you were expecting to hear.” (a school-yard Taunt)

(Bates 16 Feb. 2011
)“Certainly unexpected, in view of the overwhelming evidence he had at his disposal in our letter with its 8 closures

.”“For starters, I’m semi-offended by what could be construed as a school yard taunt ."
------------------------------------------------------------
NO RETRACTION
-No hint of remorse nor apology for the above false statements,just antagonism because their words were not accepted as gospel-
---------------------------------------------------------
