Bio Photo Yates Union Chapel Cemetery  

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.

The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

I post information and photos so we can learn, share and remember those before us. If you wish to manage any listing that I have posted it would be my pleasure to pass it on to you.

Sgt. Earl Yates
Thanks for the info on Sgt. Yates.129993618 This has been the first response I have received for Lincoln Memorial Park Cemetery. Was wondering if anyone even cared. If he is a relative, would you like him transferred?

RE: Sara Lizzie Sherrill Yates
I saw that page, but the photo doesn't really help and there isn't much information other than "Adair County". I called the clerk there and she wasn't very helpful. It looks like I'll have to make a trip to Adair county when I'm able and look for records. Thank you for your help. :)

Sara Lizzie Sherrill Yates
Hi Mr. Yates, I was hoping you could help me. I see that you posted the death certificate for this memorial. I'm trying to find the "Asper-Yates Burying Ground" as it's called on this website, but on her certificate it's listed as "Yates Graveyard". I don't see any such listings when I do a search for cemeteries in Adair county. If you can help in any way, it would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. --- Amy W

Duffin Children in Grantsburg Cemetery
I was just wondering if the Duffin children buried at Grantsburg Cem., in Crawford County, IN might be the children of Dan Duffin and Mahala Yates? They also had a daughter Ella, who was b. 1881 and died 2/21/1883. She is probably at Grantsburg Cem., as well.

Would you happen to know where Mahala Yates Duffin is buried? My mother was connected to the Yates family through Rachel Hughes.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Thank you & Merry Christmas

Robert Yates death date
Note that the headstone in Union Chapel Cemetery for Robert Yates reads Sept 30, not Sept 3. Probably a typo not caught, but it ends up as an error in a search on
