  • Notes 
    • When John B. Yates was born in 1836 in Crawford, Indiana, his father, Silas, was 26 and his mother, Lavinia Bell, was 23. He married Emma Jane Meads on May 22, 1867, in De Witt, Illinois. He died in 1900 in Indiana Territory (Kansas) at the age of 64, and was buried in Baxter Springs, Kansas. He served in Company H, 58th Indiana Volunteers and mustered out at Louisville, Kentucky, July 25, 1865.

      In 1880 his mother joined him and his spouse Emma Jane in Willow Branch, Piatt, Illinois. I assume his mother dies thereafter as he and Emma arrived in the Cherokee Nation in 1885 based on information in the 1890 census of the Cherokee Nation. This is where they both die in 1900; the area eventually became Kansas. They have a large headstone to mark their grave.
