Basically a collection of photographs/facts about the Bates Family (From TLC's United Bates of America) for anyone else who shares my interest in this family. Feel free to use photos as I don't own them, but please give credit as I spend ages hunting these down. Most are water-marked or from the blogs of other fundamentalist families.
If you are a member of one of the families featured on here/know some who is please see the below link "For Bates Friends or Family". Thanks :)
More news on Ben Seewald:
-He gradutated from homeschool (of course) this year, so he’d be a bit younger than Jessa. I’d say nineteen, max?
-His family don’t seem uber fundie, but they do have seven kids, of which Ben appears to be the oldest. His parents are both 39 (yikes!). His siblings, cousins and aunts don’t appear very conservative: shorts, tank tops etc… but a few pro-life shirts as well.
All info from Freejinger and Facebook profiles.
This photo of his parents could have been taken at the Duggar’s house:
