James H. Yates was born about 1829 in Kentucky.

He appeared on the census of June 1850, enumerated on 15 Oct. 1850 in the home of the parents of his future wife, Wesley Auberry and Margaret (Burns) Auberry, at Washington County, Kentucky.[1]

He married Matilda Aubery on 30 July 1850 at Washington County, Kentucky.[2]

He was a farm laborer when he and Matilda appeared on the census of 24 Aug. 1870 at Fredericksburg, Washington County, Kentucky.[3] He was a farmer when he and Matilda appeared on the census of 24 June 1880 at Fredericktown, Washington County, Kentucky.[4] James died in March 1880 in Washington County, Kentucky. While the census shows him living on 24 June 1880, the instructions state that the census year ended on 31 May 1880, so it seems that the census was completed based on some assumed earlier date.[5]
