      1787 LAND: Culpeper Co, VA, DB O-231, 7 Dec. Richard bought 167 acres in Bromfield Parish from his brother John Yates and wife Elizabeth who released dower. Charles Yates and Richard Yates, these two brothers bought land, Dec 17, 1787 from John Yates whose wife was Elizabeth Gaines, who signed the deed. This land was part of a tract which John Yates owned on the north prong of Thornton's River in Rappahannock Co, near the town of (Little) Washington. Here Richard Yates died in 1815.This Richard Yates was b. in Caroline Co., Va., and lived in that Culpeper which is now Rappahannock. The will of Richard Yates was recorded in Culpeper Co., Va., in Will Book "G" which Book ran from 1814to 1817. The index is there but the will itself has been missing since the days of the Civil War; Mr. Burdett of Huntington, W. Va., (g grandson of Richard) had in his possession the ledger account of the settlement of Richard Yates's estate, the first entry of which is Nov. 7,1815. Richard's son, Wm. Pitt Yates administered his father's estate.

      This Richard Yates married Mary Pitt, probably about 1788. She was probably one of the witnesses to the will of George Yates, 1778 of Caroline Co., She was of Caroline Co., VA.

      1810 CEN: Culpeper Co, VA, Richard 45+, 2 M 26-45, 1 F 45+, 4 slaves.

      1815 DEATH: Richard died testate but his will recorded in Liber G, folio189 is missing. William Yates, his son, appointed one of the executors at the August session of the court (Court Minute Book 1814-1816).

      His wife survived and remitted taxes on land he had held. His son, William, determined by collateral evidence, did not become a landed proprietor until Richard's death where he was taxed on the 164 acres in Culpeper through 1832 and then in Rappahannock from 1833 on. Was Richard's wife Mary Pitt the Mary Pitts who was one of those to present his father's will to the court?
