Went thru the cemetry books and found nothing except that he died in 1829. He had originally came to Ohio from New York and settled in Clark County OH. Simon Gates Sr, his son Simon Gates Jr and his daughter Sybil came to Leesburg Twp around 1820-1821 and did settle along Blues Creek. His will was probated in 1829, however there is no place of burial in Union County. There are some graves without markers that could be his, or possibly he was taken back to Clark County to be buried with his wife?
