Bates William G. Bates I am looking for any information on the Sterling P. BATES family who are shown on the 1930 district 5, precinct 3, Lamb County, Texas census.  The only one I have been able to find is Walter L. BATES and he moved back to Runnels County sometime after 1930. This family looks to have moved around somewhat.

Sterling was born in Carroll County, Arkansas, Married in Sebastian County, Arkansas (he has uncles living here) and almost all his children were born in Carroll County, Arkansas before he migrates to Texas.

I have found him on the following censuses: 1900 District 39, Hickory, Carroll County, Arkansas 1910 Justice Precinct 2, Runnels County, Texas 1920 believe his is migrating to Lamb County and not shown on any census. 1930 District 5, Precinct 3, Lamb County, Texas (Sterling is not shown and Emma indicates she is a widow).

There are a few listings for the descendants of Walter L. BATES, mostly Marriage and Birth records in Texas.  I may have found Charles' only son, James Elvin BATES on the Florida Death Index for 1934 but that is not conclusive.  There is three birth listing for Betty Lee BATES for three marriages, 1941, 1946, and 1952 but I have no way of determining if all three marriages are for her plus they are in different counties.

I did not find his grave shown in any of those listed on the the Lamb County website.  It is quite possible that the family did not stay long in Lamb County which would be consistent for them.

Gore/Woodworth Roger Is anyone out there who remembers some of my family - grandparents, aunts and uncles - who lived in Littlefield from the late 1920's - 1990's?     Grandparents lived on west 7th St. which was just a dirt street, and in their last years operated a little grocery store.  One aunt, Agatha Woodworth, lived a couple of lots east, in a very nice rock house which, when I saw it last October, was almost sick to see it is now wrapped in a heavy coat of ugly brown paint. The aunt who built that house was well known, and worked as a secretary/bookkeeper for the Buick & Chevrolet dealership. Her husband was C. W. Woodworth, who managed the cottonseed oil mill.     Another aunt and uncle also lived on 7th St., closer to town, in a l-l/2 story red brick Tudor style house. It is still there, but I didn't have time to locate and see it.  This uncle, Van Clark, owned for many years a barber shop near the depot.     Still another uncle, who never married, was "Dub" Gore, who operated a little news stand/candy store.  He was only about five feet tall - having greatly suffered from diabetes for many years.      My grandfather's brother - Oscar and Mable Gore - lived on a few acres  just out of town as you head toward Lubbock. Uncle Oscar had been a real old-time Methodist circuit riding minister, and established the first churches of that denomination in Gomez, Tahoka, and (I think) Post.     Looking forward to hearing from you!

Pierce Doe Stone 1860 Richwoods, Izzard Co. JACOB SOURY,(NOWRY,TOWRY) other spellings, in this HH is listed a THOS PIERCE age 3, and a JOSEPH PIERCE age 2(PEARCE). The Census on is unreadable as to what relationship these two boys were to JACOB SOURY. In 1860 Census for the same township, RICHLAND in Izzard there is a WM J NOWRY HH with a JAMES PEARCE AGE 12. I am not too sure of the surname of SOURY being correct. These two boys are in Van Buren Co, Ark, in other HHs in 1870 and 1880. I need to find the father and mother of Thomas and Joseph  or a connection to some family. Any correspondence would be appreciated. Thank you.
