    Notes 
    • Paul received his early education in the schools of his neighborhood, and grew to manhood on the home farm, and after his marriage he bought a tract of land in another section of the town. Upon this tract of land he settled, and was engaged in farming and stock raising. He met with continued success in his undertakings and was enabled to make material improvements on his property, on which he remained to the close of his useful and well-spent life. He reached a ripe old age, honored and respected by all who knew him for his honesty and high standards. In political faith he was a staunch Republican. Mr Gates was an active and devout member of the Unitarian church, of which he was deacon for a number of years. Mr. Gates and his wife passed a well-rounded married life of almost 54 years, and they were not long separated by death. She was laid to rest beside her husband, at Ashby. Mrs. Gates was a true Christian woman, thoroughly beloved in her home, to which her best thought had always been devoted.
