John Yates, Elizabeth, his wife and children left Monroe Co., TN in 1851 for Kansas. Along the way they stopped in Rushville, Illinois and stayed. John did help build the Plank Road from Rushville to Frederick. John did had a grave marker but in the spring/summer of 1935, a tornado destroyed many of the grave markers in Rushville Cemetery. Apparently his was one of those destroyed.
