Pvt. John Yates of Kilo Company, 38th Indiana Infantry Volunteers appears to be wearing what is called a 4-button sack coat, the typical navy blue jacket worn by enlisted men in the Union Army.  The framing of the picture, with all the extras, clearly indicates that this print was made as a memorial for the man shown on it.  This approximate (5x7 +/-), was known as a "cabinet card".  It was probably prepared by the photographer from a "carte de viste" 2x3 that John had taken of himself.

With close inspection it does appear that this man has a spot on the skin of his forehead, although with all the other blemishes and stains on the print, it is hard to be definitive.  This photo was found by James R. Yates with other Yates family memorabilia, which just doubly reinforces our conclusion that this is indeed John Yates because of the inscription of his children's names on the back.

John Yates' official military papers describe him as "a private serving with Company K of the 38th Indiana Infantry Volunteers. His description shows him as "Age 36 Yrs., Height 6 feet 0 inches, Complexion Fair, Eyes Dark Blue, Hair Dark Brown, Born Crawford Co., Indiana, Occupation Cooper (COOPER or CUPER - maker of barrels) & Merchant. (Another occupation Listed in other areas is Farmer) in the "special marks" section it is noted "dot in middle of forehead, extra nail in left big toe".

Nov. 12, 1864 Declaration---Widow's Army Pension. This document was drawn up by J. M. Lemands, Circuit Clerk of Crawford County Indiana.   It includes her name, age (41), that she was married to John Yates, that she was married to him on the 8th day of August, 1847 at home by John Seaton, a minister of the Gospel.   It also lists her dependent children as: James Yates born Oct. 28th, 1857; Thomas J. Yates Nov. 28th, 1855; John R. Yates April 26th, 1858; Emily E. Yates April 26th, 1858; Also, it says she has appointed J. A. B. Crecelius as her attorney.   She was unable to sign her name and so she has made "her mark", an "X" which was witnessed by a Tolbert T. Yates and Benjamin Yates. Tolbert (1814-1891) was likely a cousin to Elizabeth's John, while Benjamin (1800-1865) was likely an uncle of her husband John.

June 8, 1866; Certified Copy of their Marriage License; This document was written by J. M. Lemands, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Crawford Co. in Leavenworth, In.  It shows that their marriage license was issued on Aug. 6th, 1847 by Samuel Sands, then the Clerk of the Court, at Leavenworth, In.  It further shows them married on Aug. 8th, 1847, two days after the license was issued.  They were married by John Seaton, J.P.  In the above mentioned "Declaration" document, J. M. Lemands describes John Seaton as a "minister of the gospel", probably was bi-vocational, both a J.P. and a Minister. It also shows their Certificate of Marriage filed in the Clerks office on Aug. 28th, 1847, just 20 days after their marriage.  This document is completed in very bold and beautiful handwriting in the appropriate blanks certifying to all concerned the Legal marriage of John Yates to Elizabeth Roberson.

John M.B. Scott and Mahala Yates signed as witness to one of Elizabeth's petitions.  John M.B. Scott was married to one of Elizabeth's cousins, Fancis Roberson who is the daughter of George Roberson, b.1791.  Mahala Yates I have deduced was Mahala May who was living near all the Yates and Roberson families between 1850 & 1860.  One document certifies that Mahala was present at the birth of her children.  Mahala also married John Winfield Yates who died while in service in 1862.  Mahala later married Cyrus Benham.
