Wilcox Cemetery, Illiopolis,IL

Wife of S. R. YATES

Early Land Records From Government in Sangamon County IL lists a Benjamin Yates with 3 land purchases in 1836 in Sec. 5, residing in Greene County, IL. Wm. Yates made four land purchases in Illiopolis Township in 1854, and he also resided in Greene County, IL. Both made several purchases of land in Greene County, too.

I find no listing in the Census for Sangamon County for a S. R. Yates. There is a Wm. Yates listed in Springfield in 1860 Census. Much more research needs to be done, as this cannot be documented as the family of Nancy Yates.

If anyone can provide further information please contact Mary Ann Kaylor.
