Hello,
I am looking for information on David Bates and his family. He was married to Susan? and had the following children (proven by documentation I have) Chloe or Chloe Ann, Catherine (married Green Shropshire), James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson. He fought as a volunteer in the Georgia Militia and was wounded during the War of 1812. I cannot find any more information on his service in the war. His best friend, Anthony Adams, married Rutha Rutledge in Georgia. David and Anthony, along with their families, moved to Autauga County Alabama. His service in the War of 1812 is documented in the 1911 Census of Confederate veterans in Arkansas provided by his grandson, James Madison Bates. Anyone able to help me out with this. Thanks!
