Abraham Yates was baptized in the Reformed Dutch Church of Albany, New York, on 23 August 1724. He was a son of Christoffel Yates and his wife Catalyntje.[1]

He was typically referred to as "Abraham Yates, Jr.", probably to distinguish him from another Abraham Yates born earlier in 1724. There were several other men named Abraham Yates living in the city of Albany and county of Albany during the same period.[2]

Abraham Yates, Jr. was appointed mayor of Albany by the New York State Council of Appointment on September 29, 1790. He served as mayor until his death on June 30, 1796.[3]


Abraham Yates married Anna De Ridder by the mid-1740s. Five children of their marriage were baptized in the Albany Reformed Dutch Church.[4]
