TOPIC: information sought - Trader William Bates - decend

information sought - Trader William Bates - decend 7 years 8 months ago #4

Hi I found a discussion online , saying your tribe has information on the native wife and decendants of Trader William Bates ( Wythe VA ) licienced to trade in SC in 1750.

the author of this discussion said William Bates was adopted into the tribe as White Owl , and had both native wife and kids .

I'm reseaching a docudrama based around William Bates , his involvment in the watuaga /franklin , valley town NC , Abbeville and Saluda river -and surounding southern area's - I'd like to find out if he did have a native wife ( some of his decendants did marry natives , that much is clear -(from another marriage)
than this one I'm inquiring about .)

There is also discussion by this author saying William Bates son is Bloody Bill Bates ( often found with draging canoe in many of the same events and locations ) - I wonder if you know anymore about any of these folks you can help me with > glad to provide more details on what I do know - locations /dates ect =but this hint he married as a trader , and had the son who became bloody bill bates - is where I'm stuck !

thanks so much -Sarah Bates
