Thankful Tuta/Tate, born 2/24/1728 was the daughter of James Tute born in Ireland 1685 and Keziah Carey born in Mass. 1707. Charles Coats Jr. fought in both of the French and Indian wars, arriving in Deer field Mass. as soldier in 1744. Charles was a part of Captain Israel William's company. He served from 12/11/1755-10/18/1756 as a scout. Charels and Thankful Coats had six children. Of the children of Charles Coats Jr. we learned that only son John produced name bearing offspring. He had 8 children with wife Abigail Goodrich. John moved his family to Eaton Quebec.
Edward Coats 12/4/1711- 12/30/1770. Married Joanna Allan in Westfield Mass. They had 6 children. Of his children we discovered that of his children; Elihu Edward Coats born11/8/ 1757 died 1/3/ 1821- served in the military during the revolution for a term of 8 months in 1778. He met and married Lucy ? They settled in East Hampden and had at least one son, Jesse Coates. Jesse Coates was born 12/8/1785 in East Hampden Mass- he died in 1861. He served in the war of 1812. On 6/26/1821 he married Asenath Strong born 1801 died 1860. Jesse worked as a laborer and died a widow in 12/12/1861 of consumption. Jesse and Asenath had all girls and thus the Coats line descendants ended. The rest of Edwards off spring were girls who died early, leaving no name producing heirs through Edward’s line.
Stephen Coats 11/25/1713-1758. In 1738 Stephen Coates Married Martha Kellogg in Westfield. They had 9 children. Of his 9 children ther is no immediate information available that carries on the family name. Stephen had 4 sons and 5 daughters. The sons did not fare well in the revolutionary war. One son was left an invalid another was killed, Steven Coats Jr. produced only daughters and there is no information available on the last son.
So of the Charles Coats Family we have only the off spring of John Coats, son of Charles Coates Jr. who moved to Quebec. And so we continue our Coats family series into Quebec Canada.
