It was a toll road with the toll gate located on the old Frederick Wenger Ranch, now the John McCauley Ranch. McCauley is a nephew of the Wengers.

Asher B. Bates (1810–1873) was a lawyer and politician in the United States state of Michigan and in the Kingdom of Hawaii.
[edit]Life

His father was also named Asher Bates, so he is sometimes called Asher Bates Jr.[1][2]
Bates was born May 2, 1810 in in Le Roy, Genesee County, New York.[3] He graduated from Union College in 1828[4] and came to Detroit, Michigan in 1831, where he was an attorney, Justice of the Peace, City Attorney, and City Recorder. In 1838, he served as Mayor of Detroit[5] after the resignation of Augustus S. Porter to run for the U.S. Senate.[6] He was also an agent for the Protection Insurance Company of Hartford.[7] He married Lucilla Beals October 23, 1832, but she died in 1839.[8]
He established the practice of Farnsworth & Bates with Elon Farnsworth. They were joined by Henry N. Walker in 1836, who had studied law in their office. In 1837, Farnsworth left the firm to became chancellor of the chancery court of Michigan and with the addition of Samuel T. Douglass, the firm became Bates, Walker & Douglass. The firm of Walker & Douglass continued after Bates' departure for several years until they were joined by James V. Campbell. Both Campbell and Douglass served terms on the Michigan Supreme Court[9] and both Farnsworth and Walker served as Michigan Attorney General.[10]
He married Elizabeth Gertrude (or Gilmore) Judd (1810–?) December 6, 1843. At some point he moved from Detroit to Jackson County, Michigan, where he ran unsuccessfully as a Whig Party candidate for Justice of Probate in 1844.[11]
By July 1848 he had emigrated to the Hawaiian Islands and became a citizen of the Kingdom of Hawaii.[12] Bates was brother-in-law of Gerrit P. Judd, a former American missionary doctor who was then a power cabinet minister.[13] He served from August 21, 1849 to 1853 on the Privy Council of King Kamehameha III. On November 1, 1849 he became Registrar of Conveyances until August 3, 1859.[14] Although the office of Attorney General was not officially part of the cabinet since the resignation of flamboyant but short-lived John Ricord, Bates served as lawyer for the king.[15] Ricord had help design the executive branch and served as combined Attorney General and Registrar, or chief Notary Public. Bates was succeeded by Thomas Brown who served until 1886.[16]
He moved to San Francisco in 1863 to become a bankruptcy judge and died on June 1, 1873.[17] of leprosy contracted while in Hawaii.18. Elizabeth (Judd) Bates died in 1890; SF CALL Index pages giving a death date of 1890.

------------------------------
Wikipedia says that Bates left Hawaii in 1862, emigrating to California. The article adds that Bates died of leprosy in 1873. It is highly likely that the family was aware of his leprosy diagnosis, and fled Hawaii rather than be banished to Kalaupapa. [BStevens Jul 2010]
