Don't know if this will help or not, but in researching the Edgefield Pottery, Slave pottery, there were brothers Harvey and Reuben who were in the famous first pottery making business in Edgefield, S. C.they migrated to Louisiana.If you want more details anywhere on the internet go to the GREAT AND NOBLE JAR, which gives the whole story of pottery making in that area. The first pottery in the Americas were made there.The pits of a white type clay, Think it is KAOLIN.?EXTREMELY INTERESTING>I have Drakes in my family too, and they were from Williamsburg Co., S> C> area. Edward Drake married a Ann Ruberry. ( I am not sure they are connected to the two pottery ones, though).The book states that they left the S. C. area and went to Louisiana.GOOD LUCK.
