I am SO glad that his profile and connections are much improved.
Looking at his children, much could be improved still: Anne Yates-32 should, I think be merged into Ann Yate-313. Elizabeth Yate-33 should, I think, be merged into her "aunt" Elizabeth Yates-315. John Yate-36 and John Yates-815 should, I think, be merged into John Yates-323.
I see no substantial data conflict between any suggested merge partners, except bet. Yates-815 and Yates-323. 815 appears to be wrong, with brother Geo. Yate II's exact date and place of death appearing for him (John).
I hope someone can do some or all of this if you agree.

Magna Carta Ancestry by Douglas Richardson, and The founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, show that Yate-35 and Yate-17 are both profiles of the immigrant ancestor, George Yate, surveyor, born in England, minor in 1658, father of George, Elizabeth, Ann and John, and husband of Mary Wells, widow of Thomas Stockett.
Yate-34 and Yates-316 are duplicates of Yate-16, the son of the immigrant, sibling to John, Elizabeth and Ann, and husband of Rachel Warfield.
Richardson doesn't list the wives of George Yate the son, Rachel Warfield and Elizabeth Tucker would need to be sourced elsewhere.

Shouldn't this Yate-17 be merged with -16, -34, and -35 ?
Although this one has the best data, they surely are all stabs at the same person. I am a descendant through GY II, Samuel Y., Mary Ann Yates Money, Kezia Money Tunnel, etc., btw.
