    Yeats-28 and Yates-3869 appear to represent the same person because: As per public messages on Yeats-28 and emails between the two managers.

    PS: the Dowling family tree on Geneanet ( ) connects them via a third child, Benjamin b. 1782 who also moved to Leeds, Ontario. There, Hannah's parents-in-law match those of Yeats-28, her son married in Leeds, and she died in Ontario.

    This is likely the same person as Yates-3869 (see unmerged match). This guy has details backwards (parents, birth record, siblings) and one child, while Yates-3869 only has details forward (a different child, gravestones, etc.). What they have in common is a spouse, Hannah Phillips.

    There definitely is a couple, John and Hannah Yates, buried in Plum Garden, Ontario. This area of Ontario was "given" to the United Empire Loyalists (refugees) who fled the American Revolution in the 1770s; many if not most there came from the US.

    There is a discrepancy in the birth years, but Yates-3869 birth is unproven (from Find-A-Grave and trees only) so I suspect it's wrong, as the Yeats-28 birth is solid.

    John is 29 degrees from Jelena Eckstädt, 11 degrees from Theodore Roosevelt and 17 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
