Clark Wellington Bates, the son of Arthur M. and Elvira Hobert Bates, who died Saturday morning May 14 at the home of his son Luther A. Bates, was born in Essex in 1838 and had been a life long resident of the town.
The original Bates family were early pioneers in this section, coming from Connecticut and were influential and active in affairs of town and state.
Mr. Bates was a member of the G.A.R., having enlisted as one of the First Vermont Volunteers during the Civil War. He was the oldest member of the MacDonough Lodge No. 26 F. and A.m., now located at Jericho. Shortly after the war he married Julia Amelia Stevens who died in 1902 and there were three children of this marriage, Mrs. Elizabeth Peck, Luther and Thaddeus F. Bates. Later he married Nancy Allen of Milton, who died in 1919. He is survived by several grandchildren and also three great grandchildren. The funeral was held from his late home Monday at two o'clock.
