      Hello Mr. Ron, I found your family tree site and I have a bit of information you might like. I am putting together a Lansing family tree for my step children. Their father passed away recently, but he had shown me a box of family papers to help with the project.

      In it was an indenture (the original copy) for a young boy named John Van Rensselaer. He was being indentured to John G. and Lydia Yates in 1816.

      I was puzzled to figure how we had this paper, although the late Mr. Lansing said that there were Yates names sprinkled all over his ancestry.

      Well, your site identifies our Lydia and John G.Yates. John G. Yates has a set of grandparents, Christopher Johnnes Yates and Catherine Lansing. Catherine Lansing's parents are Evert and Anne Cooper Lansing.

      Evert and Anne Cooper Lansing are the 6th Great Grandparents of my stepchildren.

      There is also a Cornelia Lansingh, mother of John G. Yates. She could be from he family of Abraham Lansingh, the people who founded Lansingburgh and who used the extra h in the name. They would be some sort of cousins. I would get a headache trying to sort that out.

      Well, anyway, I gave the original indenture to my stepson, but I made a color copy, If you would like to see it I could scan and e-mail it to you. It has the signatures on it, John G. Yates and Lydia Yates, although I am suspicious that Lydia might not have signed it herself, since the handwriting looks like John's. It also has all the terms of the indenture, which are very interesting to read. Kay Lansing 9/9/2010

      Christopher J. Yates by Stefan Bielinski Christopher J. Yates was born in August 1738. He was the eldest son of Albany blacksmith and landholder John Yates and his wife, Albany-born Rebecca Waldron. He married Rensselaerswyck native Catharina Lansing in 1761. Their nine children were baptized in the Albany Dutch church between 1763 and 1779. Like his father and several members of the Yates family, Christopher was a blacksmith. He probably learned the trade in his father's Albany shop and inherited John Yates's tools as his birthright on the death of his father in 1776. He also was left the Rensselaerswyck farm where he was living and would receive another east manor farm on the death of his mother. In 1781, he petitioned for city land at Tiondoroge. Christopher J. Yates was one of a number of early Albany people who lived outside the core city but whose business (in this case a smithy and stables) made them part of the everyday community economy. His real estate holdings placed him above most Albany artisans. In 1790, his Rensselaerswyck household was served by three slaves. During the 1760s, he served in the Rensselaerswyck company of the provincial militia and was awarded a bounty right under the Fourth Regiment of the Albany County Militia during the War for Independence. His household was not included on the Albany or Watervliet censuses for 1790 or 1800. His youngest son was city physician Christopher C. Yates.
