I recently received some documents from a relative and included in these are some photos and letters from the Dupre (Duprey) and Drake families in Gallia County, Ohio.I have:
- Letter from Asa Drake (married to Nancy Dupre who was born around 1813 on Jersey in the Channel Islands) to Daniel Dumaresq (my GGGG Grandfather and common ancestor with the Dupre/Drake lines) postmarked August 19, 1837.
- Original photograph of Rebecca Neil (b abt. 1835 in PA) who was the wife of Rufus P. Dupre (b 1830 in OH d 1900 in OH).Photo taken by D.E. Agler in Van Wert Ohio.
- Photocopy of a letter from Rufus P. Dupre.
- Original photograph of the 4 eldest sons of Rufus Dupre and Rebecca Neil (Francis M, William F, George M and Ellsworth G).Photo taken by J.F. Rank in Van Wert Ohio.
If there are any living relatives of these people I'd be happy to send (or post online) copies of these documents.
