Thomas Yates ... He passed away in 1754. [1] Thomas Higgins, son of Richard and Mary, in his will of Dec. 2, 1702, made provision for his mother, Mary Whitehead. She made her home with him and he says: "My will is that my honored mother, Mary Whitehead, shall have and quietly possess the Parlor or Rooms where she now lives and also one-third part of the orchard during her natural life." This is the last mention of her that has been discovered. She probably died here, but the date of her decease is unknown. She was about seventy years old at this time. Thomas Yates, probably a grandson of Mrs. Mary (Yates) Higgins, settled in New Jersey before 1712 and appears in transactions with relatives there. No more info is currently available for Thomas Yates. Can you add to his biography?

His mother would have been a small child at his birth. Disconnect from parents, please.

Can you double check the details on this profile? By these dates, it looks to me like Thomas was born 2 years before his mother. Also, the profile information doesn't seem to line up with the profile info at the top. It has his name as Thomas Higgins and lists a different mother, etc. Thanks!
