Bates William G. Bates I am researching (long distance) the family of Marion Allen BATES in the Tafalgar area from just before 1860. I have noted the numerous names on the Trafalgar Cemetery but there are even more missing who are known to have died in the area and possibly closer to Hamburg that I am looking for burial information. As a side note, I have worked extensively with the GNIS listing with several new and updated features (cemetery locations) in Georgia and Alabama and am willing to issue listing requests to them with appropriate information.
