      Indiana Marriage Collection, 1800-1941 Name: Silas W Yates Spouse Name: Jane Wellman Marriage Date: 30 Mar 1851 Marriage County: Orange Source Title 1: Orange County, Indiana Source Title 2: Index to Marriage Record 1826-1920 Inclusive Volum Source Title 3: Original Record Location County Clerk's Office, Pa Book: C- 3 OS Page: 361

      James Yates b.1796 was part of the general migration of the Yates family from Kentucky to Crawford County in the early 19th century. We have records that indicate that James married Mary Ann Butler b.1792. Mary was a widow who had previously married William Irvin when they resided in Barren County, Kentucky. James and Mary were married January 7, 1819 in Crawford County, Indiana. Our best judgment at this writing is that James and Marry produced six children: John b.1825, Silas b.1827, Elias b.1829, Catherine b.1834, Benjamin b1837 and George b.1840.

      Three brothers will migrate to Illinois perhaps drawn by the work in coal fields, land speculation or other interests. In 1860 we find Silas and his wife Jane, Elias and his wife Rachel and we find George who will marry Eliza Jane Rockwell living in Will County, Illinois. This migration is how we find three good Crawford County men residing in and serving in Illinois military units. George elected to serve in the 39th Illinois Infantry and Elias served in the 100th Illinois Infantry.

      George's widow Eliza Jane Rockwell would remarry after the war and have three children before she too dies young in 1870. George's brother Elias also received serious wounds in the Battle of Chickamauga September 19, 1864 and will be medical evacuated to Keokuk, Iowa. He survives the war. George's other brother Silas W. Yates and Jane Wellman Yates live a long life in Wilmington.
