Husband of 1) Elizabeth Cleveland and 2) Fanny Lamira "Mira" Laws.
Son of John Yates Sr and Jemima Roper.
This from Contributor Carole Conrad. John Jr bought 804 acres of land from his father in law Robert Cleveland's estate and brother-in laws including the old home.
He and Elizabeth lived in the house until they died. They are said to be buried in the old Robert Cleveland cemetery in maybe unmarked graves. There are fieldstones as grave markers outside of the cemetery. These could possibly be John and Elizabeth.
John Jr was a farmer.
When John Jr remarried Fanny they continued to live in the old Robert Cleveland house where their 3 children were born.
