The Family of Frank P. and
Louise Greer Bates
Enumerators listed names and dates as they understood
the registrant who oft times had little or no
education which led to numerous errors in names, dates
and ages. I have tried to copy the census as recorded,
where errors occur, I apologize. Death certificates
are not available in Spartanburg for years before 1917
and Obituaries have not been put on microfilm for the
years 1924 through 1929.
