      [Death of ella and dr. Yates] A letter from Bryan City, dated the 23d inst., says ... "There is said to be one or two cases [of yellow fever] in the city, but, if so, they are slight attacks. But most of us think our escape is only a matter of time, and that we, too, will have to suffer from the prevailing scourge ...."

      Galveston Daily News, 2 October 1867, page 2 Bryan, Oct. 6, 1867: Eds. News: ... Miss Ella Yates and two Miss Sawyers died here. They contracted the fever at Millican. No original cases here, and we greatly hope we will escape. The town is nearly deserted.

      Galveston Daily News, 11 October 1867, page 3 Bryan ... No cases of yellow fever have occurred at Bryan since the 5 th of October. The following are deaths from fever previous to that time: H.C. Swift, Ben Hubert, D. Sanger, J. Sanger, Miss Ella Yates. Galveston Daily News, 24 October 1867, page 2 Ben Hubert, a former U.S. Indian agent, had settled in Boonville in the 1850s. In the 1860s, he served as Brazos County district clerk and as postmaster at Boonville. Hubert is buried at Boonville.

      (Van Bavel, Margaret L., Birth and Death of Boonville, Austin, TX: Nortex Press, 1986, pages 99-100). Jacob and David Sanger were two of the Sanger Brothers whose stores later became famous. Arriving in the United States in 1866, David and Jacob joined their brothers in Brazos County in 1867, only to die a few months later. The 16-year-old David, who died on October 1, and his 22-year-old brother Jacob, who passed away on October 5, were buried in Beth Israel Cemetery in Houston. (Rosenberg, Leon J., Sangers': Pioneer Texas Merchants, Austin: Texas State Historical Association, 1978, pp.17-18; Teter, Gertrude and Donald L. Teter, Texas Jewish Burials, Austin, TX: Texas Jewish Historical Society, 1997, pages 341-342). The burial locations of the other known yellow fever victims have not been identified. If they are buried in Brazos County, they evidently lie in unmarked graves. Ella Yates was the daughter of Dr. Lafayette Yates and his wife Susan (listed on the 1860 Lamar County, Texas, Census, page 119).

      Dr. Yates died from yellow fever in September 1867 in Millican (Galveston Daily News, 2 October 1867, page 2). So, it is possible that the Yates were buried in unmarked graves in Millican, or perhaps the father was buried there and the daughter in Bryan. 7 No biographical information has been found on H.C. Swift or the "two Misses Sawyers." There may have been other deaths in Bryan not mentioned in the newspapers. In addition, some folks who lived outside of Bryan might also have been buried in the Yellow Fever Cemetery. The 1864 yellow fever outbreak and the 1867 epidemic are not the only possible sources for this cemetery's name. In 1873, Bryan experienced yet another yellow fever outbreak. In September and October of that year, eleven Bryan residents contracted yellow fever, and four died from it. One of the fatalities was Margaret, the wife of Bryan physician Francis M. Hall. (Anderson, Frank G., Jr., and Edith Anderson Wakefield, The History of Medicine in Brazos County, Bryan, TX: F.G. Anderson, Jr., 2001, page 20).
