John Yates is my 4th great-grandfather.  I am unsure about his parentage.  He married Henrietta Cambron,, daughter of Henry Cambron and Margaret Harbin, November 6, 1798, in Washington County.  John’s will was written only three weeks before probate; evidently he knew he was on death’s door.

Second.  After my just debts are paid I will and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Henrietta, all my estate, real and personal, during her natural life on condition hereafter named.  It is my will she should school my children, those that have not any schooling, to have two years, and whenever any of my children arrives at age 21 or marries, to have one of my estate, one horse for use, one cow and bed furniture and after the death of my wife, the residue of my estate, real and personal, to be equally divided amongst all my children.  And lastly, I do hereby nominate and appoint Henrietta, my wife, and Henry Fenwick, Executrix and Executor to this my last will and testament, revoking all other wills made by me, given under my hand and seal this twenty-fourth day of April in the year one thousand eight hundred and sixteen.
