James Knox Polk Yates

  • Birth 17 Apr 1842 Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee, USA
  • Death 2 Sep 1918 Ten Mile, Meigs County, Tennessee, USA
  • Burial Roane County, Tennessee, USA
  • Memorial ID 7251430

"Polk" is buried in this cemetery but has an unmarked grave. It is believed (by me) that his son Gideon Yates is also buried in this cemetery, but I have no proof of that. Polk was the singing master at the Ponder's Gap Old Time Gospel Church near Ten Mile, TN. A picture of him is in that church today (2003).
