About John Yates of Duxbury

  • from Richard Higgins, a Resident and Pioneer Settler at Plymouth and Eastham, Massachusetts, and at Piscataway, New Jersey, and His Descendants by Mrs. Katharine Elizabeth Chapin Higgins Publisher- Higgins, 1918 pg. 32

John Yates and his wife Mary, her maiden name unknown, were of Duxbury where their son John was born, August 15, 1650. They soon removed to Eastham where John the father died in 1651 administration on his estate being granted to his widow Mary Yates on June 8 1651. Richard Higgins and Mrs. Yates found themselves congenial and in October 1651 they were married. There were now three boys in the Higgins household, Jonathan and Benjamin, sons of Richard Higgins, and John Yates a little more than a year old. To these in due course of time several more were added. Mrs. Mary Higgins was destined to survive her second husband and to marry a third whom she also survived as will appear.
