      Christopher A. Yates by Stefan Bielinski Christopher A. Yates was born in April 1739. He was the second son born to Albany shoemaker Adam Yates and his wife, Anna Gerritsen Yates. In Jauly 1766, he married schoolteacher's daughter Catharina Waters at the Albany Dutch church where he was a longtime member and pewholder. By 1776, seven children had been christened at the Albany church. His eldest son graduated from Columbia and was a banker and revered classical scholar. This Yates family set up their home at the North End of Albany in a district that later became known as Watervliet. However, he later paid taxes on a substantial building along Market Street which he used for business. In 1760, he served as a constable in the third ward. At the outbreak of the War for Independence, he was identified as a "freeholder in Albany." Sometimes called "Lieutenant" Yates, he was exempted from active duty by the governor in 1778. In August, he was identified as a wagon master on a list of mostly older Albany men serving under the Quartermaster General. Later, he received a land bounty right for service in conjunction with the first (Albany) regiment of the county militia. After the war, he returned to his Market Street home that stood beyond the northern bounds of the city. Christopher buried his wife in 1791. He was in his fifties and probably was absorbed in the household of one of his grown children. However, he still owned a house and a stables in the third ward that was destroyed in the great fire of 1797. Christopher A. Yates died in November 1809 at the age of seventy-one. The newspaper notice called him "an old and respectable inhabitant." He was buried in the Dutch church cemetery plot. biography in-progress notes the people of colonial Albany Sources: The life of Christopher A. Yates is CAP biography number 4460.
