  Notes for Major General John Bates:
John Bates was believed to be born in Greenville, South Carolina. He was born September 15, 1778, and his parentage has not been proven yet. There are a great many of his descendants currently seeking this information. He had a brother Julius Bates and sister Elizabeth Bates. Julius married Temperance West, and Elizabeth married Thomas Jackson. John Bates married Barbary Crenshaw 1802-1803 in South Carolina. John Bates was active in the War of 1812 and was believed to have been active in the Indian Wars and later in the Cherokee removal. He moved to Jackson Co., Georgia (cut from Franklin County) 1815 - 1816. By 1817, he was Justice of the Peace for Jackson County. Hall County was formed in 1818 (out of Jackson County) and he was on the committee to select, buy and lay out the land for the County Seat. He was one of the first five Justices of the Inferior Court of Hall County. He was Hall County's first representative to the State Legislature and held that position for 16
years. He was commissioned a Major General in the 7th Division of the Georgia Militia on December 7, 1832. He resigned on December 14, 1835. He was leader of the Union Party in Hall County, and he chaired the Union Democratic Republican Convention, July 1, 1835. He was also keeper of the penitentiary in Milledgeville in 1835. He moved to Murray County about 1836. He was Murray County representative to the state Legislature in 1839. He was Justice of the Inferior Court for Murray County 1842 - 1852 (Justice of the Peace). He was a Baptist and Mason and a planter. His wife Barbary died July 31, 1848. He then married Nancy McDonald October 29, 1848 and there were no children from this marriage. He died October 20, 1854 in Murray County and his death was due to being thrown from a horse and hitting his head on a hitching post. He is buried beside Barbary at the John Bates Cemetery in Eton, Georgia, not far from the graves of Julius and Temperance Bates, in Murray County. According to several descendants, John's wife Barbary was a Cherokee Indian, and had Jet Black Hair and Black Eyes. Many of John Bates' Sons and Grandsons were Confederate Soldiers in the Civil War.

General John Bates had many descendants who were Confederate Soldiers. Several listed here have not been proven, but have been handed down through family lore which has proved reliable in the past. Also there are others that are not listed here yet, awaiting verification of records. Unlike his brother Julius Bates, General John Bates' descendants and their families were not as fortunate as those of his brother. They suffered an unusually high number of casualties and deaths. Their sister Elizabeth Bates Jackson's descendants were also Confederates. There are many other relatives and related families that were also Confederate Soldiers.
