      12/9/2015; Ron, Please see attached the probate file of Benjamin Yates, born 1767. His will was written on 24 Dec 1838 and probated in Jan 1839. Thus he most likely died in early Jan 1839, not on 1 Dec 1838 as listed on many websites. He was my 6th great grandfather. The file is from Shelby Co., KY court records. Justin L. Smith
