About Our Family Research
Samuel Edward Draper (1856-1934) was born in Warren County, Kentucky. His parents are listed as being born in Pennsylvania. Indians killed his parents and a Samuel Draper, 3, shows up in the 1860 Federal census living with John and Martha Clarkston. He married Viena Francis Sublett (1858-1914)Her family shows up in Warren County in the 1860 census. They moved to Southern Illinois. Their children, all born in Kentucky, were Albert (1881-1958), Emma (1884-1928), John Edward (1885-1963)[my grandfather],Cary (1887-19??), Clarence Evert (1894-1954)and William (1901-19??) I am trying to find who his parents were and more of the Indian story.
