    Johannes Yates by Stefan Bielinski Johannes Yates was born in October 1716. He was the son of Albany blacksmith Christoffel Yates and his wife, Catharina Winne Yates. Following a family pattern, Johannes grew up at his father's smithy learning the blacksmith's trade that would ensure his place in Albany society for years to come. He married Albany native Rebecca Waldron in November 1737. Over the next eighteen years, their eight children were baptized in the Albany Dutch church where both parents were members. By the time of his marriage, he had joined a number of kin working as Albany blacksmiths. John's family seems to have shared a home with his parents where John succeeded his father at the forge and also as a firemaster in the city's third ward. By the time of his father's death in 1754, he had acquired additional property - a stables in the first ward and a farm across the river in Rensselaerswyck. Fifty-nine-year-old John Yates made his will in December 1775. At that time, he identified himself as the proprietor of a Greenbush farm and its two-acre orchard and as the owner of another farm in the manor as well. He was able to provide for his wife and to enrich the lives of his six living children. He died early in 1776. His son, Christopher J. Yates, inherited his father's blacksmith's tools. notes the people of colonial Albany The life of name is CAP biography number 4479. He was often referred to as "John" rather than "Johannes" Yates.

During the 1710s and 20s, he also served as a second ward firemaster and was high constable for the city in 1715.

    Notes:

    Joseph Yates, an English soldier, who came over with Colonel Nichols, commander of the English forces to whom Stuyvesant, the Dutch director general of New Amsterdam, was compelled to surrender. The family is an old and honored one in England, and Joseph is the progenitor of a numerous line, yet surviving in Albany, Montgomery and Schenectady counties and from thence scattered all over the United States. Joseph Yates appears in Albany in 1664, died there in 1730.

    He was in receipt of a pension as a soldier of the King and seems to have been purveyor of Fort Orange, as he makes a most earnest plea for pay for his wood furnished to Fort Orange. He married Hubertje Marselis, buried July 13, 1730, daughter of Marselis Janse Van Bommel. In 1693 he had seven children living and in 1713 lived on the east corner of Green and Beaver streets, Albany. He was buried July 13, 1730.

    Joseph Yates by Stefan Bielinski, Joseph Yates was the first member of the Yates family in Albany. Tradition holds that he came to America to serve with the English invasion force after 1664. He was of English background and probably was born in Yorkshire. By the early 1680s, he had married New Netherland native Huybertje Marselis. By 1704, she had given birth to seven children Yates children - who then established the family in Albany, Schenectady, and New York. While serving as a soldier in the Albany garrison, Joseph Yates practiced the blacksmith's trade - the occupation of a number of his descendants. He supplemented those incomes by supplying firewood to the fort and also held a municipal appointment as city carter. In 1714, he was certified as an invalided soldier and as one of those who had served in the Independent Company for upwards of twenty years. He first purchased a lot on the south side of lower State Street but later lived on the east corner of Green and Beaver Streets. His modest home and smithy would be family landmarks for many years. In 1684, he was cited for being in tax arrears. He also held a garden lot on the plain near the Marselis homestead. In 1720, the name of Joseph Yates, Sr. appeared on a list of eligible voters in the first ward. Joseph and Huybertie Yates lived out their days in the southside home. With children and grandchildren taking their places in Albany society, Joseph Yates died in May 1730 and Huybertie two months later. They were buried in the Dutch church cemetery a stone's throw from their home. notes the people of colonial AlbanyThe life of Joseph Yates is CAP biography number 4419.

The most useful of the printed genealogical resources on his life is "Joseph Yates of Albany, 1664-1730, The Search for Roots in England," by "Mrs. Victor Johnson," in NYGBR volume 114:4,(October 1983), 228-35.

    Yates by Stefan Bielinski, The Yates family appeared in Albany after 1664 with the arrival of English-born Joseph Yates to serve in the garrison at the fort. By the 1680s, he had married New Netherland native Huybertje Marselis. Their nine children established the family in Albany and regionally for generations to come. Joseph Yates supplemented a soldier's stipend with local appointments and contracts. He was the first of a number of American Yateses to practice the trade of the blacksmith. Elder sons Chrisoffel and Joseph followed in their father's smithy while the others left for Schenectady and New York. By the 1760s, Christophel and Joseph Yates were dead but numerous members of the third generation of the family in America had come of age and were emerging from the working class for the first time. Cementing their ties to Albany through marriage, Yates men embraced trades and service activities to support their new families from residences on Albany's back streets. Hudson Street baker Abraham J. Yates was among them. After mid-century, Abraham Yates, Jr., Robert Yates, and Peter W. Yates had become attorneys and took their places among the leaders of the Albany community, and, through the opportunities created by the American Revolution, at the state and even national levels as well. The next generation produced a number of distinguished if not famous personages. John Van Ness Yates and John W. Yates were admired and profiled imtimately in Random Recollections, the classic memoir of Gorham Worth. Grandson of Abraham Yates, Jr., attorney and congressman Gerrit Yates Lansing was responsible for creating documents collections central to the early Albany story. Beginning with the children of the first Joseph and Huybertie Marselis Yates, as many as 150 members of the family called the city of Albany their home. notes Saying or writing the English name Yates was a challenge for many early Albany people. Among the most often encountered variants are: aets, jets, zets, and so on. This family is probably not related to the Abraham Eights family, although we often are confused by the Abraham Eightses and Yateses. We call all the descendants of Joseph and Huybertie Marselis "Yates." Sources: In the course of my work on Abraham Yates, Jr., I solicited a wide range of living people I thought might know something about the subject. A wonderful core group of genealogists and family historians shared and pointed me to a healthy pile of family-based materials. Particularly gratifying was the kindness and guidance offered by Persis Boyeson and Bobbi Mc Lane. This also is a good place to begin to acknowledge the contributions of historian Stephan Wolf - author of a German language political biography of Abraham Yates, Jr. His long stay at the Project took me back thirty years to when I was researching the subject and was the same age as our young German scholar. Of course, that friendly fellow found much more material than was available in the "Dark Ages" of the 1970s! The Internet now hosts substantial material on this Yates family - not the least of it comes from our enquiry into the family of a one-time english soldier.
