      MARY YATES (William )was born in 1779/1780 In Fauquier County, Virginia, the daughter of Wm and Nancy Yates, wife of V/alter Hawkins, and died 10 May 1853, age 73, reported by her son Presley Hawkins, according to the Taylor County, West Virginia, death records. Before leaving Fauquier County, she (Polly) was married 24 July 1797 to Joseph Cross, with Mm Yates as bondsman. By this marriage she had at least one child, a daughter Mary. The family cane to Har- rison County in western Virginia with her people about 1801/2* Joseph Cross died not long after coming west as the appraisement of his estate in Harrison County is dated 15 March 1803. Mary Yates-Cross, widow, v/as married in Harrison County to V/alter A. Hawkins, with John Yates bondsman, 22 July 1803. The 1830 census of Harrison County (eastern district, later Taylor County) lists: Mary Hawkins, 40-50; 1 male and 1 female 15-20; 1 female 5-10; 1 female under 5; 1 female slave. A son Thomas and a daughter Elizabeth had been carried the year before in 1329. The 1840 census, sair.e county, shows Mary Hawkins, 50-60; 1 male and 1 female 20-30 - probably her son Presley and wife, who were married in 1840 and with whom Mary v/as living in 1850 when the census of Taylor County was taken at which time she gave her age as 70. (See under Hawkins Family) Since her husband, V/alter A, Hawkins, is listed with her among the heirs of William Hawkins Sr. in 1336 and again in 1841 signing a release, a question arises as to his where- abouts when the 1830 and 1840 censuses were taken.
