      Robert Cornelius "Rob" Yates Birth: Oct. 17, 1878 Lawrence County Mississippi, USA Death: May 1, 1949 Covington County Mississippi, USA Rob Yates was one of two sons of Charles Elijah Yates and Susanah A. Boothe Yates. He is buried beside his father, stepmother, and brother John I. Yates. He eloped with Narcissa Elizabeth "Cissie" Yeager and they married on 10 June 1906 in Covington County, MS. They had two sons, Robert Wayne Yates on 3 Dec 1910 and Lurie Edward Yates on 22 Apr 1914. Rob taught school and worked as a printer in Collins, then became a millright at the Tatum Lumber Company in Hattiesburg, where he and his little family lived at 525 Buschman Street in 1915 and at 456 Buschman in 1920. He was a member of the Masons. Rob and Cissie were divorced about 1932, when their younger son graduated high school, and Rob returned home to the old Williamsburg Community in Covington County, where he worked the family farm until his death from cancer in 1949. During my childhood, every year on my birthday he took the Greyhound bus into Hattiesburg where Daddy and I met him, and he took my hand and walked a few blocks to Sears on N. Main or the Western Auto store on W. Pine, where I picked out my gift and he bought it for me. I best remember a big baby doll named Gloria I kept for decades. --EYJ Family links: Parents: Charles Elijah Yates (1848 - 1921) Susanah A.
