  • Notes 
    • John Putnam Yates Birth: Feb. 12, 1825 Montgomery County New York, USA Death: May 30, 1895 Ceresco Saunders County Nebraska, USA Spouse:Chloe Ann Josephine Henry B:28 Sep 1834 Bainbridge, Ohio D: 02 Feb 1901 Ceresco, Saunders, Nebraska M:1853 Madison, Pottawattamie, Iowa John was an early settler of Ceresco, NE. In the Centennial issue of the Ceresco Newspaper the following was written regarding some of his influential opinions: "On June 10, 1886 the Townsite Company bought the original 160 acres of land where part of the present community is located for a total of $3000.00. Another difference of opinion developed when the location of the Main street was discussed. J.P. Yates wanted it to run east and west past his farm home, the only home on the new town site. His position prevailed, and the post office was moved. Yates also attempted to convince railroad officials that the depot should be built on Main Street. Those responsible for its construction believed otherwise and built it three blocks south of Main street. That decision once again caused the railroad to be a major factor in the development of Ceresco because it influenced the location of the business section of the town. The core of the business section is three blocks south of main Street and the main street of Ceresco runs north and south and is not Main Street." In 1887 J.P. yates owned the feed stable in Ceresco as seen on the 1887 Business Directory.
