  • Notes 
    • Thomas Yates, Jr Birth: Mar. 27, 1798 Murfreesboro Rutherford County Tennessee, USA Death: Dec. 21, 1855 Atlas Lamar County Texas, USA Thomas Jr. and Avis were married in 1816. They had nine children. There are several infants buried in this same cemetery that are probably theirs since it appears to be on the same burial plot. The dates of his death are a little different on the Ancestral File than on the headstone. The files says he was born 03/21/1798 and died 12/12/1855, probably just an error in transcribing. Source: www.familysearch.org Thomas Jr was originally from MO but moved near Paris around 1835. Records reflect that he enlisted on November 13, 1835 and fought with the Volunteer Texas Army that took the Alamo from the Mexicans in the fall of 1835. This battle was known as the Bexar Campaign.
