  • Notes 
    • William Coates is listed as the son of Thomas in an 1802 estate sale for John Gallbreath. It is not currently known how John Gallbreath ties into the family, except for the fact that he sold land shortly before his death that originally belonged to the original William Coate in 1766 (possible grandfather of this William Coates.) (C-1891)

      This William was probably a member of the Bush River Baptist Church in Newberry, SC. He died in April of 1804 in their records. (C-1858)

      In William's probable probate for his estate on May 8, 1804, wife Mary and two (probably very young) minor sons, Richard & Issac are named. His likely wife, Mary, and Richard Leavell (neighbor to brother James) were administrators. Four persons placed $500.00 bonds with the court . They were Mary (presumed wife), Richard Leavell (neighbor to brother James), Joseph Jones (?) and Jesse Coats (likely brother). Persons purchasing items or in the estate papers included Thomas, Sarah Ann, Jesse, Mary, John and Samuel Coats, Joseph Jones, William Miles, James Stedman, John Abernathy, and many Gary surnames. Appraisers and witnesses were William Miles, John Leavel, and Samuel Miles. (Note that many of these persons were members of the Bush River Baptist Church) Appraisal value of the estate was $412. 44 1/2 cents. Accounts paid by the estate were: Jesse Coate, James Stedman ( probable son-in-law of Samuel Coats, the son of "Gentleman" John) Mary Coats for raising & tuition of Richard and Isaac, sons of William Coat deceased and Sally Coat (his mother's nickname as verified in a land sale of brother Jesse's). Notes signed by the deceased and in the estate included: Wm. Miles, Exec of Thomas Coats decs, 1805, Wm. Compton. 26 Mar 1804, Wm Miles, Exec, of Thomas Coats dec., 1804, Sarah Ann Coat or Wm. Miles, $4.37 1801, Sam. Gantt & Jos Furnas, Exec. of John Galbreath dec. 1803. Settlement was a Widow's third= $113.861/2 with the remainder to maintain Richared & Isaac Coats, minors (C-877, 1606) Another Coate researcher states that he has a will in Box 3, Estate #22 in Newberry Twp., OH, though I suspect this is a misinterpretation of the one we can verify is in Newberry Co., SC records. Further info probably belonging to son Isaac follow in Issac's bio.
      The only William this could possibly be in the 1800 census records, is a William between the ages of 16 and 26 with a wife between the ages of 26 and 45 and 2 sons under age 10. (C-1907) I am guessing that he is close to his wife's age, just a bit younger. This would give him a birthdate of about 1775 and her about 1774. (C-1937)
