      WILSON W. YEATES, farmer and stock-raiser, section 4, Monroe Township, was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee, January 15, 1811. His father, Elijah Yeates, deceased, was born in Loudoun Co., VA, son of Joshua Yeates, also a native of Loudoun County, born in 1741, who came to Kentucky when Elijah was a boy of eight years. Wilson's mother, formerly Polly Woodruff, was a daughter of Jesse Woodruff, who was a native of Virginia, and served seven years in the Revolutionary War. She was of Irish ancestry. Polly Woodruff's mother was Ester Buchanan, of Irish descent. Wilson's uncles, Enoch Yeates and William Woodruff, were soldiers in the war of 1812. He was reared a farmer in his native country and received a limited education in log cabin subscription schools of the early day. These cabins were small, the seats were made of split logs, without backs, slabs on the wall were used for desks, greased paper was used for windows, and the roofs were made of clapboards. The doors were also made with clapboards and had wooden hinges. The house was ornamented with plenty of ox-gads, which were used for spice.

      Our subject removed to Montgomery County, Kentucky, in 1832, where he was married, October 3, 1833, to Miss Duleena Badger, daughter of David and Elizabeth (Miller) Badger, who was born in Montgomery County, December 9, 1816. Her father was born in Pennsylvania and her mother in Culpeper County, Virginia. Her grandfather, Joshua Badger, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Her uncle, George Miller, served in the War of 1812. Mr. and Mrs. Yeates have had fifteen children, eleven of whom are living - Amanda F., Emily R., Mary E., Carrie S., James M., Henry C., Thomas J., William W., David E., Jennie N., and B. Franklin.

      James, Henry, Thomas, and William were soldiers in the war of the Rebellion. All are married except Henry and Jennie. Mr. Yeates has twenty grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He came to this country in 1834, settling where he now lives, and where he owns 318 acres of land. He has never sought official honors. He is a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and his wife a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

      Politically he was formerly a Wig, and a great admirer of Henry Clay, but he is now a staunch Republican. He has dealt in mules more than forty years.
