From “Casey Bates – By E.D.”

Pioneers and Progress, Alix Clive Historical Club, 1974

Casey Bates was a very good mechanic and went around the country repairing threshing machines and other machinery, driving an old McLaughlin touring car.  One method he used was to heat babbet and pour it around bearings thus enabling the farmer to carry on with his job whatever it was.  He was usually a separator man and followed the machine all around the country….

His wife was a daughter of the Chas. Harmons.
