I'm still looking for information on my DRAKE family that lived in Monroe Co.for almost 30 years. Are all DRAKE families in Monroe Co.from 1840-1870 related? I would LOVE to hear from any DRAKE descendant! My 2xgreat-grandparents were: Thomas DRAKE & Hannah BROWNING. They were married in Harrison Co.,OH.on 25 Jan.1837. After the 1840 census they moved to Monroe Co. They had 10 children. Their names were: William,Benjamin,John,Thomas Carter(my line),George Washington,Mary,Wesley,Frederick,Cassandra & Esther Ann DRAKE. Circa 1869 most of this family moved to Wapello Co.,IA. Only William,George & Thomas Carter DRAKE remained in Ohio.
I'm also looking for proof of Thomas DRAKE's parents & siblings. Thomas DRAKE was born in 1810 MD.
