A Mrs. Mary Adelaide Yeates Sould proved his Rev service (Joshua Yates Sr) & her natl no is 125470. she was living in Fairmount, KS at that time. She was 5 generations removed, Joshua, Elijah, Wilson, james. Many old letters say--there landed in Yorkton in 1690 3 bros, George, Samuel, Benjamin. As the parents of these 3 boys were not married till 1700 & their 7 ch were b before 1709 when their their mother died it is quite obvious this is in error.
