==Early Life==
Ben was born on January 7, 1964, to [[Patrick Henry Gates]] and his wife, [[Emily Appleton Gates|Emily]]. Grandson of John Adams Gates. In 1974, Ben was told by his grandfather, [[John Adams Gates|John Gates]], about a treasure that goes back to the [[Freemasons]] and the Knights Templar which was so large that no one man could claim it. The story was a family legend which came from Ben's ancestor, Thomas Gates in the 1820s or 30s. This story permanently impacted Ben, starting him upon a lifelong journey to find the [[Templar Treasure]]. Later on, Ben received a mechanical engineering degree from MIT and an American History Degree from Georgetown. Ben was a former Navy man and attended the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center before continuing the six generation family tradition of treasure hunting.
