In Response To: Re: CATES in Alabama? ()
My grandfather, William Alden Cates, was a brother to John Thomas Cates, son of Robert N. Cates and Rachel Elizabeth Maxwell. Robert and Rachel brought their four sons to Texas from Alabama, and three of the sons ended up in Oklahoma (Indian Territory at the time). Robert N.'s father was Charles Jefferson Cates.
