  • Notes 
    • Ann Margarita Helms Yates by Stefan Bielinski Referred to and spelled variously, Ann Margarita Helms was said to have been born about 1749. In 1767, her marriage bond noted that she was a spinster and of New York City. Her intended partner was a newly admitted attorney. We seek information on her family and background. She was the wife of Albany attorney and operative Peter W. Yates. Between 1768 and 1786, eight children were christened in Albany - although only half of them were baptized at the Dutch church. In 1771, they were members of St. Peter's Anglican church. In March 1768, she joined her husband in witnessing the will of his grandfather. These Yateses lived in the first ward - finally in the grand mansion built by Yates during the 1780s. Peter W. Yates was a prominent attorney and community leader who later served in the Contintental Congress and in the New York State legislature. Ann Margarita Helms Yates died in November 1794 at the age of forty-five. She was buried in the Dutch church cemetery. Yates re-married in 1798. After a time, he moved west - dying in Montgomery County in 1826. biography in-progress notes the people of colonial Albany Sources: The life of Ann Margarita Helms Yates is CAP biography number 8300.
