Reading the bio on your Find A Grave, this IS Yates-942. Children match perfectly.

John made a will in Pittsylvania Co., VA and named his wife Elizabeth Yates, and children: John Yates, George Yates, Elijah Yates, Hannah Shelton: wife of William Shelton, Ann Gibson and Martha Watts. He signed his will on 24th of Oct., 1777. This John is my 5th great-grandfather.

Elizabeth's will is in the name of Yeates. She names children: John Yeates, George Yeates, Elijah Yeates, Hannah Shelton: wife William Shelton, Ann Gibson: wife of Richard Gibson, and Martha Watts. She signed her will on the 3rd of Sept., 1793 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. This Elizabeth is my 5th great-grandmother. Thank you, Tina Hall
