    3/10/2012; from Jim Yates; Dad had not lost complete sight but vision was greatly diminished in his right eye and although right handed he adopted shooting left handed. This was due to his suffering the smallpox....same epidemic early 1900's that killed Gpa Jim and Dad's sister.

    From: Jim Yates Sent: Saturday, July 05, 2008 To: Ron Great! Came thru fine. Is this a military info registration or what? I do remember my Dad saying that for years he celebrated his birthday on Jan 9th, the date on this form...then he got copy of his Birth cert from English, IN and it showed him born on Jan 8th...he said he had been celebrating it a day late most if not all his life! He also said the birth cert didn't give his name, only that a boy was born to his parents on Jan 8th, 1888. (just one more little story you needed to hear from me)!

    Never had a phone as long as I was still home....finally Fred thought they needed a phone and proposed a $5 a month to help them with getting and keeping one...we cooperated...don't remember how..but also maintained the 5 a month to help them with living expenses...they only had Soc Sec and barely made it...we helped with a car once I know...

    Adding to this...when someone needed to call us/them....Barbara's (Fred's Barb) folks (Walter and Imogene George) lived next door west and would bring messages to us...or let us use the phone..plus there was an outside phone downtown we went to sometimes....and I remember your Mom being the telephone "operator" in Chrisman...when I found out it was her I called her once and attempted to tell her how the phone worked! It's really funny now of course... those days there was a maze of "operators" all over the nation and making a call to calif for example...was a big deal! The operators had quite a job "putting you through"....quite the thing to think back on! jim

    4/27/2009 Ron: Too bad this license has not been taken better care of, however, it's pretty clear that Dad and Jesse's marriage date is May 23rd, 1910. It was at the residence of W. H. Scott, probably the minister and the two witnesses were (Looks like) Julia Scott and (not sure of first name) but (something) M. Scott..might be Don..not sure. I distinctly remember Dad (many times) saying he came to Edgar Co., Chrisman, in 1910....so they came as fairly newlyweds! I'm supposing all the kids were born in Edgar County. jim

    (Source: James Robert Yates, son of Harry E. Yates; 1/22/2011). I've thought of a couple of others that had to do with Dad's strength and prowess. I should tell them to you as well...since I might be your last source for this type of things.

    I remember Dad telling us about the "old ladies"....smoking their pipes...putting their glasses up on top their heads and forgetting they were up there, looking all over for them! They were tough survivors for sure. Did I tell you about Dad telling about his Grandma (don't know which one) trying to give him a little dog?

    She was trying to get Dad to accept this little dog that was lying there in her house in front of them. She began telling him how smart the dog was...it was summertime, the front door was open. She commanded the dog to go outdoors...he just looked at her...she commanded him again--he began to get up slowly--she gave him another command and he started toward the door, then veered off and headed for a little day bed in the room whereupon she said "go out the door or under the bed"!

    Here again, this was such a great story Dad told me when I was a boy that I had no inkling of ever wanting to know which "uncles" he was referring to, so never asked.

    The story goes that once Dad was in the company of two of his uncles. still a very young man but definitely coming "into his own". In joshing around the uncles produced a length of rope and told him they were going to "tie him up". This is a short story and didn't have a lot of embellishment to it-but--in a short while, Dad had the rope around both of them and they could go no further!

    Don't get the idea Dad was a bragger; anything but, you had to be "good" to get a story out of him, not at all like me!

    This one is about him as a young man when he attended a social event at a country church. A lot of that happened in those days, events, pie suppers, cake walks, ect, at the country churches which served as social gatherings too.

    I think the event was a pie supper where the ladies would bake pies and they all gathered to see who would buy their pie, then it was the privilege of the fellow who bought the pie to get to eat it with the lady.

    It seems Dad had outbid another guy and angered him. So as he was leaving out the front door there were several standing outside and as Dad was clearing the door he saw one of the men point above his head with a look of terror so Dad quickly put his hand up over his head just in time to deflect a lantern the angered man was coming down on his head with. The lantern separated from it's bail (handle) and the guy was left there standing with only the bail in his hand--but not for long; seems Pop worked him over pretty well.

    Per Court Documents 28 Oct 1851 is correct date of birth. Certificates filed relative to widow's pension application. In fact, several documents lay out the ages of the children under 16 co-signed by two folks, Emily Roberson and Mahala Yates who swear they were present at each of the births. All very detailed.

    James Wilson Yates eventually met his life's companion in the person of Mary Ellen Ott and on Jan. 1, 1879 they were married. Her dad, Greenberry Ott, was an established blacksmith of some reputation in Leavenworth, In. Some years later his grandson Harry E. Yates (my Father) was to become a blacksmith also. I have always thought probably Dad learned his skills while spending time in Grandpa Ott's shop. James W. and Mary had eight children between the years of 1881 and 1899 and six of them lived to adulthood. James was a farmer but also did other work to make ends meet. According to my cousin, Betty Musso, he was a carpenter and for some years she owned a small desk with a lift up lid that he had made. According to cousin Ruth Landers he also worked on the railroad.

    It was this job on the railroad, according to Ruth, where he contracted the dreaded disease of smallpox. Of course when he became sick he naturally went home. Then the whole family was exposed to the disease. My father had scars from the disease and so did Aunt Ruby, Betty's mom. Some of the others got it also. Then on September 16th of 1903 he died from the disease. A daughter Nellie also died from the disease, Betty Musso thinks she died first.

    A story is told of a very brave man who risked his life and the life of his family to help the Yates's during that time. His last name was Blevins. In looking at the Grantsburg cemetery records I have always thought it was probably William Blevins 1867 to 1954 who helped them due to his age compared to the other Blevins' buried there. The story goes that when he learned of Grandpa's death he told his wife he was going to the Yates's and help the family prepare him for burial. Remember, the family was terribly sick also with smallpox. He told his wife to bring him some articles and leave them on either side of the creek he would cross to go to the Yates place. The articles were: 1. A change of clothes; 2. Soap; 3. A towel; 4. A box of matches. After he had gone to the house and helped Grandma bathe and dress Grandpa for burial he went back down to the creek, took off his clothes, burned them, took a bath in the creek, and returned to his family. Of course we know these days that would not have been enough to protect them from the germ but he did the best he knew.

    Uncle Arthur, Wilbur and Imogene's dad was the oldest of the family and so became sort of the head of the household after Grandpa died. He was about 22 yrs old by then. My dad, Harry, was about 15. Now another example of bravery of a different type. Since the epidemic was so rampant and so many had died no one would come near the family. That included the undertaker. Uncle Arthur and Dad had to bury their own father. Dad said they loaded him into the back of the wagon, took him over to the cemetery west of Grantsburg, and buried him. I never knew if someone else dug the grave for them. I have tried to place myself in their position at that time.

    It was a privilege two of my cousins and I had the summer of 1997 to visit the site of the Yates farm where this all took place. Wilbur W. Yates, Orville Sarles, and I were taken to the site by the owner Carl Grant (Carl passed away this past year). Carl's father had bought the Yates place while Carl was a boy at home yet. He showed us exactly where the original house stood. Then he showed us a place where a log cabin had stood where the family moved to after Grandpa died in a sort of effort to escape the germ.

    I can't describe the almost sacred feeling I had as we stood there where our parents had lived, played, laughed, and cried. I had heard my Aunt Goldie tell how she and her sisters discovered some love letters my Dad had received from a girl. She said Dad chased them all over those hills laughing and threatening. Some of them were older than he and apparently could still outrun him. Those thoughts from memory's lane came back to me.

    The family had been moved down the hill to the log cabin for a few nights when one night the house on top of the hill mysteriously burned to the ground. It was always thought someone had torched it in an effort to kill smallpox germs.

    “Recollections of Betty Musso, daughter of Ruby Yates”; I have been wracking my brain trying to remember some of the things Mom told me about the Yates. The first thing I can remember is when Grandma Yates went to town and left the boys at home on the farm. She came home to find they had stripped the bark off the fruit trees. She said, "Who told you boys to do that?" Mom always laughed when she told me that story. Of course I heard it many times. When the small pox epidemic hit the family Mom, Ruby, was three years old. They tied her hands to keep her from scratching her face and she would turn over and rub her face in her pillow. She was always conscious of the scars it had left but I don't think anyone else ever noticed.

    You probably know grandmother came from a wealthy family. Grandpa Yates worked on the railroad and in about 1903 he came home to the farm with Small Pox, there he and one of the daughters died. Mom, (3 yrs) Ruby Eva also had small pox but survived. In those days people didn't understand how the disease was transferred, they were just panicked. After grandma had lost her husband and daughter she moved her other children to the much smaller farm house that was down over the hill from the large family home. One morning they woke up and discovered their large home had been burnt to the ground. So Mary Ellen was left to raise (6)? children by herself.

    I can remember her living with us for at various times in Indiana. My first memory of her was how she combed her hair, which hung down her back, into a bun and pinned it with large hair pins. Also she would keep orange peels in her dresser drawer and eat on them like candy; probably much better for her. She lived with us again when we lived outside Anderson, Indiana and I do have pictures of her fishing with us on the bank of a river. She wore an old-fashioned sunbonnet. Good memories of her! Betty

    A 2nd headstone was erected by the family at Grantsburg Cemetery in memory of John shared with his wife Elizabeth; this stone indicates his burial in GA.

    Pvt. John Yates of Kilo Company, 38th Indiana Infantry Volunteers appears to be wearing what is called a 4-button sack coat, the typical navy blue jacket worn by enlisted men in the Union Army. The framing of the picture, with all the extras, clearly indicates that this print was made as a memorial for the man shown on it. This approximate (5x7 +/-), was known as a "cabinet card". It was probably prepared by the photographer from a "carte de viste" 2x3 that John had taken of himself.

    John Yates' official military papers describe him as "a private serving with Company K of the 38th Indiana Infantry Volunteers. His description shows him as "Age 36 Yrs., Height 6 feet 0 inches, Complexion Fair, Eyes Dark Blue, Hair Dark Brown, Born Crawford Co., Indiana, Occupation Cooper (COOPER or CUPER - maker of barrels) & Merchant. (Another occupation Listed in other areas is Farmer) in the "special marks" section it is noted "dot in middle of forehead, extra nail in left big toe".

    John E. Yates Civil War Letters and Experiences

    Elizabeth Roberson Yates' apprehension about the War and her husband would be drawn out but not typical. Her husband John Yates enlisted at Alton, Crawford County, Indiana on November 20, 1861 for a period of time extending for, "During the War" and reported for duty seven days later on November 27, 1861 at Camp Nevin, located 76 miles from home in Munfordville, Kentucky.

    John Yates joined Company K, 38th Indiana Volunteers Infantry along with several other friends, neighbors and family to include: Cyrus Benham, Peter Curl, Thomas W. Goodson, Laban Gregory, James Glenn Land, Tolbert McCraney, William Greenberry Roberson, George W. Seaton, Daniel Yates, George W. Riggle and others. George W. Riggle, John & Daniel Yates were brother-in-laws as they married Roberson sisters.

    John Yates' Company First Sergeant was his cousin William G. Roberson. Upon Company K formation, James G. Land enlisted with the rank of corporal, subsequently promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and thereafter was appointed Captain and the Company Commander. Tolbert McCraney married Samantha (Matt) Yates on May 4, 1865 just after the close of action which makes him John Yates's son-in-law after John dies. John Yates is the 2nd great-grandfather of Ronald E. Yates, author of this information.

    John Yates's experience as a soldier in the broad view brings to mind an old quote: "If it wasn't for all the bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all". Three months after joining his company John Yates was hospitalized and given thirty days medical leave at home for some unknown but repugnant infectious ailment. He reported back to duty in March 1862 and participated with the company during the summer months. It would appear that during this service he was injured in action or by accident such that he could not ambulate well. When his regiment was to march to Nashville in October 1862 he could not complete the march and was subsequently hospitalized in Louisville.

    His condition worsened to the extent that physicians initiated a medical discharge from the Army and he departed with orders for Grantsburg, Indiana January 7, 1863 with proper documentation. He understood he was no longer in the military, properly filed his paperwork, was in communication with members if his Company and was pondering other ways to serve other than as a "footman". John's problems were just beginning but he didn't know it yet because Army Medical Staff failed to follow through and report John's medical discharge with his Company K, 38th Indiana Commanders. So, you can imagine his surprise when on August 29, 1863 the Provost Marshals arrested him for desertion and transported him immediately to Chattanooga.

    The John Yates Court Martial (AA 623) was conducted in Chattanooga, TN on October 22, 1863. The full transcript of the proceedings were discovered in 2008 and confirmed previous deductions based on logic as to how things took place. lst Lieutenant James G. Land, 2nd Lieutenant George S. Newman, Captain George W. Windell, Surgeon John Curry, and Private George W. Roberson testified at his Court Martial. The facts were reviewed including a copy of his medical release from the Army endorsed by the 2nd District Provost Marshall. John Yates was found not guilty of all charges and specification and his reward for all of this was he was now re-instated in the Army and was welcomed back to his old Company K Company with his neighbors and friends.

    At this point his Company was involved in the siege of Chattanooga, TN, September 24-November 23, 1863; Chattanooga-Ringgold Campaign November 23-27; Lookout Mountain November 23-24, 1863; Mission Ridge November 25, 1863; Pea Vine Creek and Graysville November 26, 1863 then Ringgold Gap, Taylor's Ridge, November 27, 1863. The Company then started their duty at Rossville, GA., and Chattanooga, TN, until February, 1864, and at Tyner's Station and Graysville, GA until May 1864. The winter of 1863-64 was passed at Rossville, GA and Chattanooga. While at Rossville, GA the regiment re-enlisted on the 28th of December, 1863, and, on the 3rd of January, 1864, the entire regiment started home on a Veteran furlough reaching Indianapolis on the January 9th with 360 men and officers.

    It would seem logical that John would be excited to see his family he likely had not seen since he was taken away under arrest earlier in September 1863. Waiting for him at home on January 10th or 11th after traveling from Indianapolis was Samantha 16, James Wilson 13, Thomas Jefferson 11, Evaline 8 and twins Emmie and John R. age 6, waiting to see and touch their father again. The celebration of the homecoming was shattered when little Evaline age 8 died for some unknown reason about 10 days later. You can imagine the grief felt by all as they buried their young child near their home at Lankford School Cemetery. The last time they will see their father will be on the 26th of February, 1864 when the regiment returned to Chattanooga and moved to Tyner's Station in March and then Graysville, GA in April 1864 in preparation for the push to Atlanta.

    April, May, June and July 1864 constitutes the Federal advance towards Atlanta and the Confederate forces resisted each and every bloody mile of ground. We have found many letters written by John during this period and their contents have been summarized along with the original letter. If you place what John is writing in context they are chilling in simplicity of the mission to stay on the move at all costs towards the objective. He and his comrades "See the Elephant" which is how that generation of fighter describes the 1,000 yard stare of a grizzled veteran in combat operations. In 2010 two of his descendants retraced his pathway described in the letters bringing a whole new perspective to the story. This was a war up close and personal where progress could be measured in taking a certain field, high ground or maintaining a strategic location. This was a successful strategy used until the Armies met at Kennesaw Mountain just north of Atlanta and Sherman tried a frontal attack.

    Much has been written about this battle as it was a painful encounter. General Joseph E. Johnston, fearing envelopment, moved his army to astride Kennesaw Mountain. This entrenched arc-shaped line, to the north and west of Marietta, GA protected the Western & Atlantic Railroad, the supply link to Atlanta. Having defeated General John B. Hood troops at Kolb's Farm on the 22nd, Sherman was sure that Johnston had stretched his line too thin and, therefore, decided on a frontal attack with some diversions on the flanks. On the morning of June 27, 1864 Sherman sent his troops forward after an artillery bombardment. At first, they made some headway overrunning Confederate pickets south of the Burnt Hickory Road, but attacking an enemy that was dug in was futile. The fighting ended by noon, and Sherman suffered high casualties. Johnston withdraws his forces on the evening of July 2, 1864 to a better position for defense of Atlanta.

    With Johnston's relocation to defend Atlanta, Sherman is now able to embark on a strategic campaign again. The best way to visualize this in summary is to think about one Federal Army poised north of Atlanta. From Sherman's perspective as the attacker he views his resources as either the Left side or Flank of his forces, the Center of his forces or the Right side or Flank. By designing a plan of coordinating moves Sherman will have his Right Flank hold their ground and not let anyone move through them; consider this as the hinge of a swinging door. While the Right Flank holds he will have the Left Flank and the Center forces sweep forward in an arc moving southward towards Atlanta. By July 8, 1864 the Federal Left Flank and Center forces infantry was across the Chattahoochee River to the south side paused while both sides continued to engage and posture with one another. John Yates and his fellow comrades of Company K, 38th Indiana Volunteers were operating as part of the Right Flank and were charged with holding their ground while the Left and Center were moving.

    Company K, 38th Indiana was encamped about 2 miles north of the Chattahoochee River when John Yates' luck finally expired along with him on July 14, 1864. We knew that John died accidentally on this date but his death location and the circumstances remained mysterious for 146 years until it was pieced together in October 2010. Only now have determined researchers compiled the results of what is best described as a "Cluster Analysis" of seemingly unrelated events. The seemingly unrelated event question is on a day that was relative quite without recorded war casualties in the theatre of battle, why did approximately 25 Federal Soldiers die about the same time? The conclusion based on several pieces of documentation and outcomes is that about 4:30 PM July 14, 1864 a Rouge "Killer Storm" swept through the North Atlanta area causing widespread chaos with guns and artillery discharging, ammunition is exploding, several men directly hit with lighting and many trees to be taken to the ground. From anecdotal information we know that John has gone to his tent for a rest and had the unfortunate occasion to be next to one of these falling trees which kills him.

    From John's friend and brother-in-law George W. Riggle we are told John was inside his tent and a tree fell and crushed him dead. The second mystery was the location of John's first grave before the Marietta National Cemetery was created and he was moved to his final grave. This last mystery was resolved when researchers discovered invoices paid to post-war vendors who raised cash by recovering Federal Soldiers to be re-interred in the National Cemetery. As a result, we can fix pretty closely the location of Company K, 38th Indiana on July 14, 1864 and John's initial burial location by making a study of the invoice statement which provides the location. This location is "1 1/2 miles southwest from Vinings Station and 3/4 miles west of W & R Railroad buried under a French tree in an old field by a tree."

    Nov. 12, 1864 Declaration---Widow's Army Pension. This document was drawn up by J. M. Lemands, Circuit Clerk of Crawford County Indiana. It includes her name, age (41), that she was married to John Yates, that she was married to him on the 8th day of August, 1847 at home by John Seaton, a minister of the Gospel. It also lists her dependent children as: James Yates born Oct. 28th, 1857; Thomas J. Yates Nov. 28th, 1855; John R. Yates April 26th, 1858; Emily E. Yates April 26th, 1858; Also, it says she has appointed J. A. B. Crecelius as her attorney. She was unable to sign her name and so she has made "her mark", an "X" which was witnessed by a Tolbert T. Yates and Benjamin Yates. Tolbert (1814-1891) was likely a cousin to Elizabeth's John, while Benjamin (1800-1865) was likely an uncle of her husband John.

    June 8, 1866; Certified Copy of their Marriage License; This document was written by J. M. Lemands, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Crawford Co. in Leavenworth, In. It shows that their marriage license was issued on Aug. 6th, 1847 by Samuel Sands, then the Clerk of the Court, at Leavenworth, In. It further shows them married on Aug. 8th, 1847, two days after the license was issued. They were married by John Seaton, J.P. In the above mentioned "Declaration" document, J. M. Lemands describes John Seaton as a "minister of the gospel", probably was bi-vocational, both a J.P. and a Minister. It also shows their Certificate of Marriage filed in the Clerks office on Aug. 28th, 1847, just 20 days after their marriage. This document is completed in very bold and beautiful handwriting in the appropriate blanks certifying to all concerned the Legal marriage of John Yates to Elizabeth Roberson.

    John M.B. Scott and Mahala Yates signed as witness to one of Elizabeth's petitions. John M.B. Scott was married to one of Elizabeth's cousins, Fancis Roberson who is the daughter of George Roberson, b.1791. Mahala Yates I have deduced was Mahala May who was living near all the Yates and Roberson families between 1850 & 1860. One document certifies that Mahala was present at the birth of her children. Mahala also married John Winfield Yates who died while in service in 1862. Mahala later married Cyrus Benham.

    Notes:

    Cause of death is stated as lockjaw: (SOURCE: Crawford Co. Death Index, Vol. 2 from English News, 1900-1919)

    Operated a blacksmith shop set on part of lot #137 of the original plan of Leavenworth. A photo of three building together with a team of horses show the Ott shop to be the center building in this photo. The photo is well distributed. The Ott building was reduced over time leaving only a piece of the building frame. For many years in the late 1980-2000 part of this frame was used as part of the Leavenworth sign. It no longer exists. Pieces of wood and photos thereof of the original was collected and shared with distant relatives. The wood pieces were salvaged by Bobby Lahue for his relatives.

    When viewing the 3 building photo and team of horses, the building on the far L was a warehouse and feed store operated by the Huff family and others. The building on the far R was the Jenner Blacksmith Shop, i.e. Sam Jenner. The person driving the team of horses is Pausy Frans.

    The Ott shop was parted with 1/30/1907 which is also the year Greenberry died, 3/8/1907. The shop sat on the west 1/2 of lot 137. Besides Blacksmithing they also dealt in farm implements. A Mr. Dan Booth ran the shop thereafter for an uncertain amount of time. The last person to operate the shop was Craig "Hosey" Richardson.

    Greenberry and his wife owned and lived on lot 85 on Jackson Street, down near the Big Spring in Leavenworth. Sherman and his wife Adeline lived on a lot on Front Street, #26. This faced the river. They also owned lots 171, 174, 175, 179, 180 and 181. These faced Spring Street which is also known as "Smokey Road". John Ott and his wife Phoebe lived on lot 84 next to father and mother.

    Sherman's wife Adeline was known in the community as "AD".

    Clark County Democrat, Marshall, Clark County, Illinois. 22 May 1929

    Reuben, third son of John and Anna Tingley, was born in Clark county, near Martinsville, Illinois, December 10, 1844 and departed this life Mary 12, 1929, aged 84 years, 6 month and 2 days. On Dec. 24, 1866 he was united in marriage to Georgiann Bostwick. They settled on a farm near the parental home, where they lived and worked together until April 16, 1892, when death separated them, the dear wife and mother parting to the Great Beyond. To this union seven children were born, two sons and five daughters. Two daughters have preceded him in death, Mrs. Alfaretta McDaniel on July 5, 1917 and Mrs. Emma Smith on September 10, 1828.

    On January 22, 18998, he was united in marriage to Carrie Frye. To this union three children were born, tow of which preceded him death, Denzil in infancy and Donald on May 1, 1928. In early manhood he united with the Mr. Pleasant Christian church but for several years his health has been so poor he could not attend the services. For many years he was one of the most prosperous farmers of his time. At the time of his death he was the oldest resident of his community. During his last years it has been the custom of his children and grandchildren to meet with him at the old home on his birthday anniversary. He always looked forward to this event from year to year.

    He will be sadly missed in the home and in the community for he was a faithful husband and father and a friend to all. He was always ready to lend a hand where help was needed and to offer a word of friendly advice or encouragement. During his illness everything that could be done was done to lengthen his lease on life, but God's will, not ours, be done. He leaves to mourn his departure a wife, two sons, Nathan and Harry near Marshall, four daughters Mrs. Ella Snowden of Indianapolis, Mrs. Kate Murphy, of near Marshall; Mrs. Margaret Martin, of Highland City, Florida; and Mrs. Hazel Sweet of near Martinsville, three stepdaughters and one stepson, Mrs. Gertrude Chaney, of near Kansas, Illinois, Mrs. Mattie O'Brien of near Martinsville. Mrs. Nora Wise, and Arthur Frye, of Ohio; two brothers, John and Julius of Terre Haute, also thirty-three grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.
