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 ancestry.com 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.
