Bates Festival

I learned about Martin Van Buren Bates early on in my collecting information on the family.  I did not know what happened to him for a long time.  Uncle Jesse told me that he had settled in northern Ohio near Cleveland.  He said he had been up that way and talked to the druggist in the town of Seville.  He said there was a festival for the giants at the fourth of July.
