A 353 page book (including index) has been written on many of the descendents of Alexander and Sarah Bates by Ruth Cleghorn Ker who provided this information. Called "Alexander Bates and many of his descendants" the book is for sale from Ruth.

A good library might be able to hunt down the book for you.
The author passed away on April 16. I can consult my copy it you want.
Is there any chance to get some information from this book? Seems my ancestors point to this book, but i need more information.

Going with Frank's suggestion of trying to find the book in a library, I checked on WorldCat (global catalog, of participating libraries, provided by OCLC.org).  The only book that they have by that author is about Grahams.

That book is in New Brunswick Canada.  If that is where Ms. Ker is located than her home library or genealogy society might have a copy of the book you want.

Having this information, if you go to a library will impress them with your prowess; and, make them think of other avenues to help (including a more advanced search).

Good luck
