There are many notes here with the ultimate goal of linking William to the descendants of John Yates (Yates-11) for whom I am currently the profile manager. This process was initiated by my brother, so I am not sure where the trail actually started, but at this point there is no proven link between these individuals. At the time of writing this note, I have not put effort into this connection. So more information may now be readily available than is referred to in these notes.

1) These are misc notes collected over many years on the Yates name. My husband, Dan Byrne's great grandmother was Rebecca Yates, born 1811, Lee Co. VA. She married first Elijah Shepherd in Jackson Co. Mo. After his death she married Joshua McDaniel Sr. After his death she went to CA with her two McDaniel sons, Joshua and Charles. Joshua was the grandfather of Dan. Joshua married Mary Jane Fore. First they went to Lake Co. Ca. She had Yates brothers who had settled there. Some of her Shepherd children also went to CA. They bought land in Lake Co. the record will be included in this booklet.

2) Charles McDaniel died in Lake Co. at the age of 19 of Tuberculosis. Believe he is buried in the cemetery at Middletown. Rebecca, Joshua & Mary McDaniel, some of her Shepherd children went to Santa Clara Co. Ca. She died 1885 and is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in San Jose, Ca. The record only says that she died in San Felipe. This may have been at the Dunne Rancho which was on the border of San Benito and Santa Clara Cos. It is still there just outside Hollister, Ca. Some of her sons worked there.

3) I am printing these notes for future generations. I always put copies in the following libraries: Sutro Library, San Francisco, LDS Library, in Salt Lake City, Daughters of the American Revolution Library in Washington, D.C. Plus copies for my children, grand children and some nieces and nephews.

31) From Jean Kohiha, 141 W. Sonoma, Stockton, CA 95204, 1983: My gggrparents were Solomon and Mary Wells Yates. In Gallatin Co MT where I grew up she was referred to as Granny Yates. Solomon and Mary J. Wells were married 9 Sept 1834, Lee Co. VA. (Marr bk vol 1, pg 7). They went to Jackson Co Mo. after the church ceremony according to an account printed in the mug book entitled Progressive Men of the State of Montana. As mug books go, info supposedly is furnished by the person whose life is under discussion. My ggrandmother, Annie Yates Miller was b 1 Oct 1847 in Andrew Co Mo. Solomon Yates died in the late 1850s in Gentry Co Mo. In May of 1864 Granny, with 3 of her ch left for Montana. My Mother's only remaining bro who is about 85 now knew most of the Yates family in Gallatin Co MT. He did not know the Wm. B. Yates that I asked him about for Olan Lewis of Piedmont. However, a document that Olan sent me places Wm. B. Yates in Belgrade, Mt. which is in Gallatin Co. in the late 1800s. It was signed by gramdfathers uncle, Jacob F. Miller. The following from the 1890 voters register for Gallatin Co Mt. 1-John M. Yates, 23 yrs old b Worth Co Mo living in Hillsdale, Mt. 2-Wm.B. Yates, 66 yrs old, born in Lee Co Va. living in Hillsdale 3-Wm.H.L. Yates, 27 yrs old, b Worth Co Mov. living in Hillsdale. I believe the John M. Yates listed is John Monroe Yates, called Roe, who married Rebecca Miller. Her parents were Jacob F. Miller and Evaline Yates, dau of Solomon and Mary WElls Yates. My ggrandmother, Annie Miller also lived at Hillsdale at that time. I have done some checking in Wilkes and Ashe Cos. NC for Yates but found no proof of relationship to any of Lee Co Va. I need to check everything in Wilkes, Ashe, Surry Cos. NC.

32) Marriage record: Andrew Co. Mo. No. 727, I, James C.C. Tatton, Minister of the Gospel, do certify on 25 Sept 1851, I solemnized a marriage between George Miller and Rachael Yates, both of said co., 7 Oct 1851, reg. by Cameron F. Fuller, Circuit Clerk, rec of deeds.

34) Marriage record: James M. Sitton of Gentry Co Mo. and Rachael Miller of Gentry Co Mo on 1 Apr 1866 at the Brides house by James Yates.

35) From Leeson's history of Montana 1885, Gallatin Co. pg 1146. contriubted by Isla Cain, Rt 4, Box 148, Bozeman, MT. 59715: Mrs. Annie Miller, PO Hillsdale was b 1 Oct 1847, Savannah, Andrew Co Mo. dau of Solomon and Mary Yates. When leaving Mo. for MT she was 16 yrs of age. Her father died before leaving Mo. and the family left for MT 7 Sept 1864, arriving at Virginia City in the same year. Moved to Jefferson Co after buying a farm there, 7 months later. Our subect was married at Virginia City, 13 Nov 1864, to Solomon Miller of Greene Co Il and lived in Jefferson Valley 3 yrs and 2 yrs at Madison Co., returning to Mo back in 1870 and settled at Radersburg, MT Territory, remaining 2 yrs, to Gallatin Valley, 1875, bought a ranch. Mr. Miller died from injuries recd from a horse while crossing a creek, 18 Feb 1880 in the Judity Basin. He died 20 Feb 1880 and was buried at Ft. Benton. The family still resides on the ranch where they located in 1875. Children:

Yates 15 Mar 1787 to Eliz Miller. This might have been the William in Wilkes Co NC in 1790. A William Yates died in Wilkes 1791. His son Stephen Yates was admr and I found a paper in the estate papers in the State Archives stating there was no estate, real or personal for William. Oct term 1791, an inventory of the estate of William Yates..only a debt of 70 pounds due from Robert Husband who hired the said deceased as a substitute in 12 months service but as part of the money is paid and the accound could not yet be settled, the admr cannot at this time tell how much is due..a true acct returned by Stephen Yates, admr.

I recd a note from my 1st cousin, Mary Slaght Wright of San Jose with a copy of your inquiry about the Joshua McDaniel family. I was surprised and interested. I guess he was a great uncle of mine. We called him Uncle Josh. My father was a Shepherd and his father was gone before I wqas born. His mother died earlier in Mo. (Rebecca Yates Shepherd McDaniel d 1885 in CA). There were 3 sons, John, William, Jim and 2 girls. One girl died quite yg and the other Annie married a Slaght. She was Mary's mother and lived to a good age. John had 4 boys and a girl and lived at Edenvale, so of San Jose. All are gone but 1 boy, Frank, had children who lived around Los Gates or San Jose . William Shepherd went to Mexico to work in a mine about 1880. He married a Mexican woman and had 3 girls. When he learned he was about to die of TB he brought his family to San Jose. His wf died soon after of TB, about 1896 and the girls were put into a convent. He must have had some income from the mine to pay for it. Two of the girls also died of TB leaving the ygst, Marie, about my age, to be raised. As soon as she reached 18 they turned her loose to face the world with nothing. She went to San Francisco, got a job, met a wonderful man whom she married and had a happy life until she passed away of cancer about 20 yrs ago. (Cant remember the name of her husband but he was Chinese). There were 3 girls in my (Jim"s) family. I was the ygst and will be 83 next month. All my family have gone but have 2 nephews and a niece. Our baby died at birth. Annie had 3 boys & 2 girls. Mary was the ygst and I think the last one left. She has a nice family and we hear from each other in San Jose at least once a year.

45) I remember the Yates family too but was not sure if or how they were related. A dau lived in Mayfield, now a part of Palo Alto, when I went there to teach, 1914. Her husband published the weekly paper but I have forgotten his name. She died while I was there. Another Yates operated a resort in Lake Co and Lulu McDaniel spent her summer vacation there and met the man she married, a police officer of San Francisco by the name of Byrne. I assume you are a dau in law of her. After her marriage, I only saw her once or twice and then heard of her death. I often wondered what became of her children. She taught school at or near Sunnyvale until she was married and I frequently visited them at the ranch. I lost the location of the ranch after the freeway was built which by passed it. The old road went by their palce.

There were 2 other families that were cousins. One was the Taylor family and the other Mileham. Le Taylor had a dau, Edna, about my age, who died 20 yrs ago. She had no ch. The others either didnt marry or had no children. Records werent kept very well. I would be glad to meet you. My husband has been gone 8 1/2 yrs. Signed: Maud Shepherd Keltner.

46) From Mrs. Frank McGrady, 604 E. 6th St, Lee Summit, MO, 64063: I am related to Elijah Shepherd who married Rebecca Yates. My ggrfather was James P. Shepherd Jr. He and Elijah were sons of James P. Shepherd Sr who came to Jackson Co Mo in the 1820s from Lee Co Va. I have the name of a blood relative of your husband's who lives in CA. Mrs. Oren Pearson. I am corresponding with Mabel Louise at this time, we are working on the Shepherd history. My grfather on my mothers side was William Winfield Yates b NC 19 Sept 1849 d Warrensburg, Mo 14 Aug 1925. He was a Union soldier in the Civil War. He married Mary Emma Martin at Shell City, Mo 26 Aug 1880. <>47) Andrew Co Mo: Shepherd, Elijah died intestate, admr: Solomon Yates, 21 Oct 1844, sec: Levi Yates, James Woosley, Isaac Blanton, Elias H.

52) Re the letter from Denny Alumbaugh there is some confusion due to a book written in 1910, History of Lafayette Co. this tells of Elihu Yates, son of Wm. and father of Lewis Cass Yates..etc It says that William was born in Scotland 1780 and worked for 30 years in Norfolk, Va. as a ships carpenter, for the US Govt., it says he emigrated from there to Cynthiana, Ky, and from there to Jackson Co. Mo. later to Platte Co. Became Co Judge & served one term in Platte Co. m Mary Wells, native of Va, and she d 1840, Platte Co. 9 ch, all decd.

This is a terrible mess--as William the father of Elihu did not marry Mary Wells, his son Solomon did. Also he couldnt have worked 30 yrs in Va, as he was in NC 1800 where his first child Levi was born, then to Lee Co Va, then Jackson Co. Mo. I wrote once to the Historical Society in that Mo area but they werent too interested in the mix up.

53) Jan 1970 from Charles Hartzog, 1107 Japonica Lane, Cocoa, FL 32922: My grgrmother, Martha Jane Yates Shepherd of Ashe and Wilkes Co NC was a dau of Squire Allen Yates and his wf Eliz Miller. She had a sister named Rebecca M. b ca 1870. I believe but no proof that we are also descendants of John Yates of Wilkes Co. as I believe he was the first Yates to settle there, with the exception of Joshua Yates who had his property confiscated. This Joshua did leave that area before 1800 as he is not in the 1790 census of Wilkes or the 1800 census of Ashe. Benj Yates is the only Yates in 1800 census of Ashe Co. John Yates b VA., 1754, to Wilkes before the Revolution.

In 1988 I received a letter from Charles's dau, that he was deceased and she was carrying on his research.
