1009 Charlie's notes say that there was a son called P. J., and that Mary L. Walker died in childbirth, and the son P.J. died in infancy in 1868. James Milton Woollen
 
1010 Frank's vital data came from the "Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index, 1916-1947" on Ancestry. Spouse is listed as Josephine Worden. Mother is listed as Elizabeth Grover, born in Sandusky OH. Father is listed as James Worden, born in NY (probably Jones was remembered as or mistaken for James). FHL film # 1653947. Frank Worden

1012 Buddy attended college but did not graduate. He came back home and ran the old family farm east of Brookneal, in Campbell County, Virginia. He mainly grew tobacco, and he also worked as a tobacco auctioneer during that season of the year. Henry Fredrick Yates
 
1013 Bradford attended college but he did not graduate. He worked as a detective on the railroads and traveled a lot with his work. Robert Bradford Yates
 
1014 Stephen Yates (born 1756) was not a son of John Yates (c.1714/5 - 1778) and his wife Elizabeth. Both their wills named their male and female children, and Elizabeth's will was written years after that of John. She listed the same children, so there is no chance of a posthumous child. And Stephen was born years before the death of John. So we must look elsewhere for his parents. Stephen Yates
