First Generation Yates
The line (so far) is traced to Roane County, TN and begins there with Miles Yates who married Debby Holmes there in 1840.
Second Generation
Son James Knox Polk Yates stayed in Roane County, but two of his children by his first wife, James William Milburn and Myra Yates migrated to Missouri with the Morrison family.
Third Generation
Jim Yates married Cerilda Breedlove in Missouri and at least one of their children moved to Oklahoma.  Almost all of the other Yates children migrated to Washington state to jobs connected to the lumber industry. They include: Lem, Elizabeth, Rhoda, Lydia, Will, and Martha.
Fourth Generation
One of Jim’s daughters, Cerilda, moved to California where she passed away. Son Will’s family (Gale, Guy and Waldo) stayed in Washington. (Guy passed away in 1938 in WA state).  Waldo (Wally) then migrated to Oregon for a short time and then settled in California.
This is a short snapshot of the Yates family migration from 1840 to the Present.
