L C Bates of The L C Bates Museum
In Hinckley, Maine
Edward of Weymouth Line
By Sandy Bates
Some of you who may recall that at the 2003 Reunion here in
Greene, Maine we went to the LC Bates Museum. They were
interested in finding out what Family Line LC Bates may have
belonged to. For years I was stumped on this line.
I found the line and made up a book for the LC Bates Museum.
They were very grateful for the book and will have it on hand
for folks to look at.
When I first began the search for the Ancestry of LC Bates I
believed that he belonged to the Family Line of Clement Bate/
Bates of Hingham, Mass, who immigrated from England in
1635. A Jabez Bates was mentioned at the Museum. I knew
this Jabez to be a cousin of my Husband, Harold’s Line of
Clement, and we had a Jacob. But none of the other names
matched up.
So Carol Seward, a researcher in the Edward of Weymouth
Line, and I got together and we found the complete line for LC
Bates. Carol is in the Edward of Weymouth Line. The name
was originally Bate but during the Revolutionary war and S
was added making it Bates.
So the following is LC’s information.
Page 434
storage plant started in 1879. He was president for many years
and then turned business over to his son Vernal and a brother
Henry. Lewis moved to West Paris, Maine and built a lovely
home on Main St. Was a financial backer for the building of the
West Paris Universalist Church of which he was a member. He
and his wife gave generously to the building along with other
donations from the parish and friends, that at the dedication it
was free of debt. The tower bell of 1000 pounds was a memorial
gift of L. C. and has the name Bates etched on one side. The
church was dedicated June 27, 1906. The Bates Endowment
Fund of $2500 to the church was established in about 1920.
Wife Ella gave a section of the stained glass windows in memory
of her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Phineas B. Warner. Ella died in 1924
and the Ella M Bates Endowment Fund of $10,000 was established in her memory.
At one point Lewis was president of the Paris Manufacturing Co,
having invested financially in the business. He had sidewalks
built and trees planted to beautify. He was interested in the scout
camp at Locke’s Mills. The railroad station at West Paris was
named BATES in honor of him. The L.C. Bates Museum at
Good Will Home in Hinckley was built with funds donated by
him. He gave generously to that worthy work as well as to the
Ferry Beach Association.
Lewis had son Vernal Bates born 1879 in Ct.
This Vernal had a son Theodore Bates, who wrote the Jingle.
LC’s full name is Lewis Carlton Bates.
M & M’s melt in your mouth not in your hand. He was a noted
stock broker in New York.
His Ancestry begins in England. Edward Bate was born in
1605, and came to Weymouth Mass. By 1638.
