Hello, I am glad you stopped. Pull up a chair and let's gab awhile. I am researching the Drake line of northwestern counties of Pennsylvania.
I was born in Cambridge Springs, Pa., b 09/08/1933. My parents were Levi Ver Drake b 12/25/1886 d 4/1972 and Ethel Sylvia Cheney b 08/28/1893 d 16/18/1980. Grandparents were Levi Eugene Drake and Minerva Jane Black. Their children were Levi Ver, Elmer 1893-1977, Charlie 1883-1961, Inabelle Marie (Drake) Thompson 1882-1967 and Macie (Drake) Bisbee 1889-1967. GGrandparents were Benjamin Drake and Sally Bontz - children Levi Eugene, Frank, Sanford, Henry, George and Deany. Levi Eugene once owned and operated the stagecoach between Union City and Wattsburg.
I BELIEVE my GGGrandparents were Paul Drake and Rebecca Dean - children were Benjamin, Derias, Dean, Polly, Francis and Aseneath. AGAIN, I BELIEVE my GGGGrandparents were Abijah Drake and Tabitha Plumley - children were Seth, Francis, Abijah, Paul and Phebe.
Can anyone find the parents of Abijah and Plumley? If we are related, please e-mail me. If anyone has data on this Drake line, please e-mail it to me. If too large for e-mail, I will e-mail you my address. If you know any Drake, please give him/her a copy of this.
Have a good day and good luck in your research.
