The marriage could have occurred in 1737. From "History of Pittsylvania County" by Maud Carter Clement "On Thursday, 1 June 1758, John Yates was among several residents of Halifax County, Virginia (now Pittsylvania) who gave depositions telling of attacks and robberies by Indians. It reads: 'John Yates (this could also be the son, John Yates) being sworn deposed, that he in company with one Philip Preston were rideing along the road together not having heard anything about the Indians, or suspecting anything about them. He heard a Gun fired close behind him, and turning about discovered three Indians close at his Heels, That they could have made their Escape, But on the Indians calling out Cherrockees and holding out their hands in token of friendship, and fearing to be fired at should they attempt to Escape, they stopped. The Indians came up to them and Shook hands, and then instantly pulled them off their Horses, beat them with Sticks, Stripped them naked, took all they had from them, pointed their Guns at them, and Ordered them to run which Order they instantly Obeyed.'" John is listed in the 1767 tithables with his son John and slaves Bob and Cate taken by John Wilson. All of John's household furniture and a negro woman called 'Little Cate' was to be divided among his children at the discretion of his wife at or before her death.
