Note

Note: There is a memoir, written by James' daughter Martha Jane, in which she descibes the 80 acre farm that James Yates had near Chapin, Missouri. I have a copy of this memoir, generously given to me by her granddaughter, Marilyn Scott Tank.
Jim Yates' daughter Martha said that he had a beautiful tenor voice.
After the death of Mary Elizabeth, his second wife (the mother of Minnie Yates), Jim moved out to Washington to be with his children. He was living with his daughter Martha Scott when he died. At various times he lived with his son Will and daughter Rhoda too.
Jim did not like to ride in a car. He was used to riding in wagons, or on the train. His grandson Wally said that he thought that the reason Jim didn't like to ride in a car is because he chewed tobacco, and that he would go to spit out the window and it would be into the wind and he wasn't prepared for the consequences. Wally said that one time when he was in the car in Washington, Jim spit out the window and his spit came back at him, and his hat flew off, and Wally said that Jim just about flew out the window with it.
Wally also said that Jim would rather walk somewhere than ride in a car. He said that when Jim moved out to Washington to be near his kids, that his daughter Martha had moved to a "ranch" in the Tumwater area, and Jim would walk from Bordeaux to Martha's and it would take him all day to get there. People would stop and offer him a ride and he wouldn't take it because he didn't want to get in the car!
On Dec. 8, 1997 in a phone call with Allene Chapin, she told me that the reason Jim Yates didn't like to ride in a car was because he had owned a Model T truck and had been driving it one time and went over an embankment (in MO) and it scared him so much that he refused to drive any more.
