      From: yates-bounces@rootsweb.com [mailto:yates-bounces@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of Gail Yates; Sent: Tuesday, December 20, 2011 9:56 AM; Right person, wrong name. It should be Britton Howard Yates. He stood about 5' 2", was stout looking, and was completely bald. When he was in his 60's, he could jump up, click his heels 3 times, and land running. He was able to call just about any creature in the woods. He went into battle giving a dutch hen call. He was a 'dead shot', since he hit anything he aimed his gun at (did not use sights).

      Britten Howard "Britt" Yates Birth: Apr. 23, 1843 Dickson County Tennessee, USA Death: Jan. 27, 1927 Neelyville Butler County Missouri, USA Two of James Yates' sons fought in the Civil War, James Henry Yates and Britton H. Yates. The following is an excerpt from mail I received from Gail Yates regarding Britton Yates: “At Chillicothe, Missouri, Uncle Britt mustered out of the 4th Provisional Regiment, Missouri Militia, he had entered during the Civil War as a drummer, or musician. He was going home to Kentucky, after he mustered out. After walking all day in the hot sun, and missing the ferry, he decided that the Mississippi River was low enough for him to swim across. After walking upriver a short distance, he ducked behind some bushes, stripped off his clothes, tied them in a bundle, placed them upon his head, and then swam across the Mississippi River just above Memphis, Tennessee. He then put his clothes back on and walked home to Pilot Oak, Kentucky, or to his brother James Henry Yates’ house. Uncle Britt owned a cabinet shop at Pilot Oak, KY, for several years and made quilt boxes of walnut boards, that were held together with wooden pegs. He was a dead shot, since he hit anything he aimed at to shoot. Uncle Aubrey Luther held Uncle Brit as a hero. My father said Uncle Britt could jump in the air, click his heels three times, and take off on a run, and that was when he was in his 60’s or 70’s. He said all of the young people were soft. Uncle Britt moved to Poplar Bluff Missouri, from Kentucky, and lived there until his death. Marriage records of Dickson County Tennessee show he married Daminty Pistol. I have not been able to find other records to verify who she was.” Britten, 2nd Great Grand Uncle of Sandra Jayne Savage Ruyle Family links: Parents: James Yates (1806 - 1880) Rebecca B.
