I wonder if you are still researching this family. I am connected. Would like to hear from Bateman family in Gloster, Amite County, MS and near there... descendants/researchers. Trying to clarify relationship between Naomi Bateman McLain and Frances Naomi "Fanny" Bateman Ratcliff.
My guess is they were sisters. Both born Williamson County, Tennessee, both show Isaac Bateman as father, both wound up living in Gloster, MS
