    • 1739 Land: 12 Oct, with Samuel Yate purchased that part of "Yate's Contrivance" devised to their brother, Benjamin, by their father.

      1750 Apparently under some financial strain, Joshua sold several Negroes on 6 Oct and mortgaged his home plantation on "Yate's Contrivance" on 9 Feb 1750/1.

      1751 Death: 11 May. Died intestate in Anne Arundel County. Inventory taken May 11, 1751, appraised at L103/16/5. (ref. Inventory, Liber 48,folio 239). Account rendered by Samuel Yate, his brother and administrator, on May 17, 1758, showed David Rowles and John Seliman asthe sureties. The inventory of 1751, was signed by Rachel Deaver and Ebenezer Yates as the next of kin, and by John Dorsey, Jr., and Thomas Graf as the greatest creditors.
