Mary Yates

In William Tapps will dated 27 Jun 1780 it says I give unto William Yates son of Mary Yates Dec'd,....

Who is Mary Yates? The will does not give an relationship for her. Many have her listed as a daughter married to William Yates but the Mary that was married to him died in 1812 so the Mary in William's will is clearly not this Mary. Does anyone have any info that clearly shows who Mary was?

The information I have is only preliminary and has not been confirmed. I don't have a Mary or William Yates, but I have Katherine Yates listes. She married John Lewis Sr. Her daughter Mary Lewis was the spouse of Thomas Tapp son of William Tapp I.

My name is Scott Jett and I descend from William Tapp 1, William Tapp II, William Tapp III, Sarah Tapp Jett, Joseph Jett, James Monroe Jett, Stephen Jett, John Jett, Charles Jett, Marvin Jett and William Jett. I also have Jetts on my mother's side.

Maybe we're related. I recently came across the Talifierro name tracing it through Bathomeo Taliaferro, Frances Taliaferro, Robert Taliaferro, Mary Taliaferro...etc. I'd love to share any information that I have that would be helpful and visa versa. E-mail me if you'd like to do the same.

Hope this helps!

Mary Tapp Yates and Sarah Tapp Jett were sisters. Mary married William Yates and had a son William. The documentation for this comes from the will of William Tapp "Item I give unto William Yates son of Mary Yates..." We would be related through The Taliaferro, Johnson & Bourne Families. Robert Taliaferro - Mary "Taliaferro" Johnson - Elizabeth "Johnson" Bourne - John Bourne (my line) & his sister Christian "Bourne" Tapp (your line). I am working on the whole Taliaferro family. This is what I have on the children of William and Christian "Bourne" Tapp:

You have a William Tapp married to an Elizabeth Lunsford. Could you tell me the source for this information?
I have William married to Elizabeth Doggett. This family moved to North Carolina in the 1750's.

After reviewing all the info on the net I think you are right. I will make the change and also add a note saying their is a dispute over her last name but Doggett is the most likely the right one. Also I found his will in rootsweb and am adding it to my records. Thanks for your reply bringing this to my attention.
