Re: John Harold Bates

Hi Carolyn,

Wow, you found alot of information I did not have. I must have gotten the wrong John Harold Bates when I was looking for him. I think the one you found in MA seems to be the correct John Harold Bates that I am looking for.

It's hard to confirm since my father, his sister and brother have passed. From what I've heard, Nina was married to a George Sangdahl (borned in Ohio), had two sons and divorced. She later married John Harold Bates. I think John Harold Bates was married before and the story I ehard was that John Harold Bates' ex went on to marry George Sangdahl. Not sure how true as I have not been able to confirm. I have not had a chance to meet the Sangdahl family, which are the only relatives on my grandmother's family that are alive.

On my father's side, I was able to trace them up to John Newlin and Elizabeth Cowinder but I have not been able to confirm that these people existed. I have not been able to find any Cowinder's so I am not sure if I have the right name.

I want to thank you for your help. The information you provided is great. Thank you.
