Death: May 18, 1964

Texas, USA

~Josephine "Jodie" Yates~
Was the daughter of William Lafayette Yates and Edna A."Sis" Salter,Yates.
Jodie was institionalized in Terrell State Hospital sometime in 1900 at the age of 33. I was told that my Grandfather Robert Yates carried her in a wagon from Houston County, Texas to Terrell, Texas where she was admitted to the Terrell State Hospital. Where she lived until the day she passed from this life.
I remember my father taking my Grandmother to visit her in the 1940's, I never knew the date of her death.
The Yates family moved to Houston County, Texas about 1890 from Neshoba County, Mississippi.
The Yates family was a large family of
Four sons:
John William, Samuel Thomas, Robert Darling and Loranzo Dow.
Six daughters:
Emily Florence, Eudora, Josephine, Denkie, Bertie Mae and Alma Geneva.~
Aunt Jodie did return home from the State Hospital after she was there many years but she chose to return to the hospital and lived out her life there.
I finally have a record of Jodie's death certificate which I found through "Family Search" Jodie was in The State Hospital for 55 years and 209 days. She passed from this life at the age of 96.
