hi, my name is Patricia Yeatts and I am also 16. I can tell you where the name Yeatts came from. Along time ago 2 brothers got in a fight. There last name was Yates. But one of the brothers changed his name to Yeatts and disowned his family. Thats what my dad told me. Thats why my great aunt margret, who helps form the Yeatts-Yates family reunion puts on the banner, anyone with the last name of Yeatts or Yates is welcome. She says we are all related.
