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 (identified in the baptism record as Christ. and Catal. Joets).
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.
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.
Abraham Yates and his wife Antie DeRidder (July 10, 1726. Feb. 4, 1795) are memorialized in Albany Rural Cemetery on a stone shared with Jannetie Waters (April 19, 1723. March 2, 1810), second wife of Gerrit J. Lansing; and Abraham G. Lansing (Dec. 11 1756. Sep. 5, 1834) and his wife Susanna Yates (Aug. 18, 1762. Feb. 21, 1840). Susanna (Yates) Lansing was his daughter.
Abraham Yates married Anna De Ridder by the mid-1740s. Five children of their marriage were baptized in the Albany Reformed Dutch Church.
