Hello & good morning to you all,
I am Ruth Vaughn Stapler, my mother Lois Earlene Bates Cosper Vaughn, never knew her father, Charles Edward Bates, Charley, Madison County, Huntsville, Alabama. She was reintroduced to him again abt 1969-1973. He had old-times, can't spell the medical word sorry. He was like a toddler, & no one wanted to care for him, they found my mom in Ga., as she was the eldest, & the good hearted, loving, God believing Lady she was, my parents took him in. But that is another story.
Here is what I know & now seeking.
Thru good hearted resourceful people on the net I have found his parents so I will start with them.
George & Mettie Bates in the 1900 Bedford County TN census
George Bates Feb 1876 24 Married 1 yr Tn/Tn/Tn
Mettie Bates June 1882 18 Tn/Tn/Tn
(She was a mother of 1 but 0 alive) so must have lost one during first year of marriage)

1910 Moore County TN census records:
Date of census - April 16 1910

George Bates 38 Married # of yrs married -10 Tn/Tn/Tn
Mettie Bates 36 Married # of yrs married - 10 Tn/Tn/Tn
Charlie 11 Tn
