      Circumstances place Michael Yates as the eldest son and heir of George Yates III of Baltimore County, Maryland, and Caroline County, Virginia. The significant name of Warfield is carried down in this family which denotes the knowledge and sentiment which this branch had for their maternal grandmother in Maryland. Furthermore, one finds Michael Yates domiciled in that portion of Caroline County where George Yates III lived and died, and his age would place him definitely as a son of said George Yates. In addition to circumstantial evidence, there is documentary proof through the will of his son, Dr. George Yates, who died testate in Culpeper County, Virginia, in 1788. He wrote that his Grandfather George Yates, deceased, did in his lifetime make a deed of gift recorded in Caroline Co. The fact that Michael Yates had a son born before the death of his father establishes him as the oldest son, inasmuch as George Yates was a minor upon the death of his father.
