"WILCOX, JOSEPH YATES was born in Palermo, Oswego county, November11, 1832. His grandfather, Frederick, who was born February 26, 1771, and died November 29, 1860, came originally from Connecticut and settled in Cazenovia. His father, Joseph Wilcox, who was born February 28, 1798, in the village of Hamilton, went and occupied a farm in Allehany county when about twenty-five years of age. Two years later he exchanged this farm for one in Oswego county, which since the death of the father, May 10, 1869, remained in the possession of his son, Joseph Yates. Melissa, the mother of Joseph Yates, was a daughter of Willard Abbott, one of the pioneer settlers of Madison county. Besides Joseph Yates, there were born to Joseph and Melissa, Nancy Rosing, Lavina and Abbott, the last two having died in childhood. Like most other boys at the time, Joseph Yates enjoyed only such meagre educational advantages as were offered by the district school. He took up the occupation of his father, and in his twenty-fifth year, married GRACE ADAMS of Batavia, N.Y. At intervals during the past forty years, he has taught vocal music. Of his three children, Mary and Joseph C., died in infancy. His son, Abbot Yates, prepared for college at Mexico Academy, graduated from Syracuse University in the class of 691, was general secretary of the Young Men's Christian Association, first at Keystone, N.Y., then at Marquette, Mich., and in 1894 entered Auburn Theological Seminary where he is now studying. The house still occupied by Joseph Yates, was built by his father close to the site of the little log structure in which Joseph and Melissa lived about five years, and in which two of their children were born."
