      John Yates of Harrison County, Virginia had a son, Nelson Yates, born about 1806, who left home as a young man. A Nelson Yates entered land in Floyd Township, Putnam County, Indiana, but did not remain there. It is significant that Nelson's first cousins, Isaac and Hugh Yates also lived in Floyd Township. Nelson Yates was a resident of Benton Township, Knox County, Missouri and was enumerated on the census records for that location in 1850, 1860, and 1870. He was a farmer and owned land valued at $3200 in 1870. "Mrs. Vonda Gregory of Wendel, West Virginia, a descendent, wrote 3 March 1936 the following to the compiler of this family history: 'We have prepared a short memorandum of some of our ancestors for the benefit of ourselves and also for those younger. The first of our ancestors that we have any account of at present was John Yates -- born February 27, 1773... Their family consisted of five boys and four girls, namely: Martin Yates (1804-1883), Nelson Yates, Isaac Yates, Elijah Yates, Lawson Yates, Elizabeth Yates, Nancy Yates, Sarepta Yates, Mary Jane Yates. The family after marriage settled in Taylor County near the old home place except one. Nelson left home in his young days and was never heard from again. The old home is still owned by the Tutt family grandchildren'." [Lela Wolfe Prewitt, The Wolfe, Hawkins, Sheets, Yates, Wheeler and Allied Families (1964), page 60]
