There is a Bates Homestead (Registered Historical Homestead)in Lawyersville, just outside of Cobleskill, NY. The last I knew John Bates Sr. was still alive (quite elderly by still active) as of about 8 years ago. The homestead is occupied by one of his sons (Richard Bates) and another son lives across the road from the homestead (His name is John Bates, Jr. and he is the Sheriff of Schoharie County.
I hope this will be of some help.
