Georgina Bates was the daughter of Ronald Bates. Ronald Bates was the grandson of Homer Bates who was a brother to my great grandmother, Carrie Bates Casey. I would love to learn more information about Georgina Bates for my family genealogy tree. I know she was married to a Mr Vaughan, however besides her birth date and death date, this is all I know about her.

Thanks,

Rita Kay

Hello everyone,
I am new to the forum and a total newcomer to the ballet world. My daughter is the executor of the estate of Diana Adams daughter, Georgina. In her effects are a number of beautiful pictures of Diana en pointe and other classic ballet poses. There are also numerous head shots of her and a pen& ink drawing as well. My daughter knows these would be important to someone and hates to dispose of them. We do not know very much about Diana's history or whether these pictures would be important for us to keep or donate? Can anyone help. Thanks for any information.

Hello. I posted a query yesterday when I learned of my very close childhood friend Georgina's death. I learned of it by receiving her Christmas card back with a note from the current owner of her Savannah home that Georgie died a few years ago. I had lost touch with her and was worried because we would typically talk at the holidays and I never heard from her after last year's card. I sent this year's card and was very excited to receive a letter from Savannah yesterday, until I opened the envelope to see that note. I found this site with only a little information about Georgie's death. I have to tell you I have been completely devastated for the past 24 hours and I am hoping someone who knew the circumstances of Georgie's death, a little about her life in her past few years, will contact me and share what they know. I spent last night digging out our childhood photos together and I am heartbroken to think that she took her own life. I am hoping someone can tell me that that piece is not true. Please, if you have any information, please contact me through this site and I can share my phone # or e-mail address. I spent more time at Georgie's house than I did my own as a child (we lived next door to one another - Evegen who also wrote on this site, lived on the other side of Georgie. We all played together as kids). Diana Adams was like a mom to me; I considered their dog, Pepper, to be my dog too. I have wonderful memories of being backstage during the Nutcracker at the NYCB as well as at the SPAC summer ballet programs when her dad, Ronald Bates, was directing the lighting. Evie, if you read this, please contact me. I've been trying to find you on-line, but don't know where you are. Thank you to anyone who can help me understand this terrible tragedy...........Judiann
