ATHEY, JAMES - born 1810, VA, died 23 January 1874, Greene County, Iowa; married 15 Sept 1836, Tippecanoe County, Indiana, to Catherine Summers, born 1816 Ross County, Ohio, daughter of Michael Summers and Mary Shults, d. 1845-1850 in Tippecanoe County, Indiana.  James and Catherine Athey had children: [1] John Athey, 1837; [2] Michael Athey, born 1839; [3] Mary A. Athey, born 1840; [4] Henry Athey, born 1842; [5] Thomas Athey,  born 1845.

James Athey married 2nd to Barbara Fiedler, 12 April 1853, Tippecanoe County, IN.  They had children: [1] Sarah; [2] James; [3] Joseph.  They moved to Iowa about 1856.   Mona Shaffer

BAER, Susan Elizabeth - Born October 22, 1845 in Lafayette Tippecanoe IN, died Sept 21 1938  Shattuck, Ellis, OK;  father John Baer  b 10/18/1808  d 01/02/1886,  mother Susan Ash  b 03/24/1809 d 04/03/1885.  Ruth O'Hair-King

BAKER, GAINES, RANDLE -  In 1817 when my great grandfather, George Elisha BAKER was born, they lived in Pickaway Twp., of Pickaway Co., OH, which is right on the border with Ross Co., OH.  Then to Parke Co., IN (by 1830). In 1842 George Elisha BAKER married Susannah RANDLES in Warren Co., IN.  The RANDLES family also had land in Shelby Twp, Tippecanoe Co. and seemed to ignore the border, farming / living back and forth.  George and Susannah moved on to Cedar Co., IA, in 1849.  They are said to have moved with other families but I have not determined who those families were.  They settled in Cass Twp. just west of the Cedar River.

Several RANDLES descendants left Tippecanoe County for Cedar and Linn (adjoining Counties)
in Iowa.  Among them were some of the children of Madeline RANDLES and John Wesley GAINES:
Emma Jane GAINES left in 1889 to marry Henry Edmond BAKER in Cedar County.  Siblings who followed were John B. GAINES, Silas E. GAINES, Albert GAINES, Alphretta Gaines WATSON, Rachel Gaines DOWNS (who went on to Minnesota), Margaret Gaines WAGNER and perhaps George O. GAINES who went on to the Pacific Northwest.

 I might also add that several young men migrated from Harrison County West Virginia to marry Randles girls.  Elias Edgar DAVISSON, Eli HOOPER, and Ai DAVISSON are known for sure to have hailed from Harrison County, WV.  Three Gaines men were also born in West Virginia and had close ties to the Davisson family there and married RANDLES girls in Tippecanoe County.  It seems likely that their roots were also in Harrison County but is not yet proven - Josiah / Joseph GAINES, Daniel R. GAINES, John Wesley GAINES.    Sheryl Ginn

BATES, John Homar, was b in Lafayette, Indiana on October 25, 1874. He was taken by James Guntrip or Deward Smith to Oklahoma and Kansas at a young age, he remembers he had brothers and sisters, but didn't remember their names. We think there must have been some sort of a tragic event, that caused the children to be separated. There is a John Bates that appears on the 1880 Census with father Hiram Bates and mother Julia both born in Vermont. Hiram was born 1844. They had Lucy b 1866, Cornelia b 1868, William b 1870, Katie b 1873, John b 1874-74, Josie b 1877, and Hiram b 1879.  All children were b in Indiana except Cornelia who was b in Iowa. This James Guntrip and Deward Smith knew what happened to the family but wouldn't tell it. Does anyone know anything about this family or if anyone knows of a John Homar Bates that was b in that area at that time would love to hear from you. The family would have had to be separated around 1880, as he thought he was three years old at the time, but that could be off a year or two.   Marjorie Bates Gracy
