  • Notes 
    • Life of John Yates: John Yated shipped as a cook on a Maurice River sloop at age 13. When he was 18, he joined the crew of a vessel sailing from New England ports to Florida and, when he was 24, he became commander of the schooner "John Compton", commanding the ship for four years. After being ill from 1862 to 1865, he bought a schooner, in 1866, and ran it as a trading vessel in Chesapeake Bay until 1884. Abandoning the sea, he moved to Bivalve, where he operated a grocery store and ship's chandlery and owned several oyster boats. He was the first postmaster of Bivalve, serving for four years. He later moved to Port Norris, New Jersey. Source: Shelhorn - Shellhorn Genealogy compiled by Jack M. Lines and Jean C. Jones 1972
