Larkin appears to have been a son of Thomas Yates and Phebey (Combs) Yates. The dates for his birth and death are taken from his grave stone. [1] He is probably one of the 4 boys under 10 years old listed with Thomas Yates for the 1820 census and the male entered as age 20-29 in 1830. In 1833, 1836, and 1838 Larkin was listed next to Thomas Yates on tax lists. [2] [3] [4] In February of 1843 he sold his land to his younger brother James[5], who was living with their father, Thomas; this was 17 months before Larkin died. A neighbor, Nicholas, mentioned in that record, was also next to Thomas Yates and Larkin on the 1838 tax list.

There is no indication that Larkin had a family of his own. No heirs were listed in the will left by Thomas in 1853. Larkin's sister Martha Patsey named one of her sons after him. In 1830 a Reverend John Yates (relation unknown) who lived nearby also named a son Larkin.
