I have been making positive Drake identifications
& family connections for Drake's living in New Jersey; specifically, located within Warren & Sussex Counties during the late 1790's & 1800's.

I am looking for any/all information related to
an Ebenezer Drake, who married a Prudence Sutton
in 1813, Sussex County, New Jersey.

His extended family lived in the hearby communities of Tranquility, Independence, Green/Greene, Allamuchy, Knowlton, Mansfield,
Newton, Hackettstown.

Ebenezer was likely related to other Drake's
named Ebenezer- that lived within this area - or
possibly from the Piscataway, NJ area.

He also had a brother named Joseph, who lived in Pennsylvania.

He had a son named Joseph, that moved to CANTON, Illinois - at about 1850. There are descendants.

Descedants develpoed families in Illinois, New'Jersey, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Kansas,
Pacific Northwest & California.

I have been long searching for the Amy Drake Hamler and her family (Sussex Co. & Warren Co., NJ). I recently found out that "Amy" is most likely "Emma" Drake Hamler. And she had more children than I thought.

Emma/Amy (Drake)Hamler (b. 1821) was married to David Hamler (b. abt 1809-1813, NJ).
Their children were:

1.) Sarah Hamler, b. 1838
2.) Mary E. Hamler, b. 1840
3.) Ebenezer Hamler, b. 1841
4.) Elsie Hamler, b. 1845
5.) Keziah Hamler, b. 1846
6.) Cemantha (Semantha?) Hamler, b. 1848
7.) Napolean Hamler, b. 12 May 1849 in Independence, Warren Co., NJ; married Elizabeth J. Beatty (Jane) 13 Jul 1871.
8.)(TWIN)Amanda Jane Hamler, b. 10 Jul 1851, Independence twp, Warren Co., NJ
9.) (TWIN)Martha Lucilla Hamler, b. 10 Jan 1851, Independence twp, Warren Co., NJ
10.) William McEowen Hamler, b. 04 Aug 1852 in Green twp., Sussex Co., NJ (McEowen was Emma/Amy Drake's mother's surname.)
12.) Phebe Mary Hamler, b. 26 Jan 1854
13.) Vandevere H. Hamler, b. 1855 in Sussex Co., NJ; married to Emma Ackerman.
14.)Redmon Hamler, b. 1859
15.) Marshall Hamler, b. 02 Sep 1861, Green twp, Sussex Co., NJ
16.) Amamda K. Hamler, b. 17 Oct 1862
17.) (TWIN)Albert Hamler, b. 25 Apr 1863, Green twp., Sussex Co., NJ
18.) (TWIN) George H. Hamler, b. 25 Apr 1863 in Green twp, Sussex Co., NJ; married Ida Ackerman, sister Emma Ackerman. Died 1932 in Connecticut.

I believe that David Hamler's father was my GGrandfather's father. My GGrandfather was William H. Hamler, b. Sussex Co., NJ 1802; d. Sussex Co., NJ 1854.

Thanks for any help.

A correction to my previous post: it is for sure that David Hamler's wife is AMY Drake Hamler, not Emma Drake Hamler.

Also, new information:
Amy Drake Hamler's father was ADAM DRAKE, b. Bet. 1786 - 1789 in Brandon Twp, Oakland Co, NJ.

Amy's mother was Sarah Boiles/Boyles, b. 1790 in New Jersey; d. 09 Jan 1836, Green twp., Sussex County, NJ .

Adam and Sarah's children were:
1.) Firman/Fermon Drake
2.) Amy Drake, b. Abt. 1822
3.) Lydia Drake

Adam married a second time to Mariah/Maria Lydia Foote, b. 1833 in Michigan. She died in 1909 in Michigan.

Mariah bore Adam Jacob Drake, b. 03 Oct 1853.

Response to Nelma Mckinsie re Adam Drake. Your e-mail address is out-of-date. Adam Drake is my ggg grandfather when he was married to Sarah Boiles in NJ. She was born c 1790 and died in 1836 in Green Township, Sussex Co NJ. They were married 10 Jun 1811.They had 13 children. I have a note that there could be an earlier unknown wife. He married Lydia Mariah Foote in Michigan in 1849. They had 10 children. His pension file at the National Archives includes affidavits from two of Sarah's and his children as to when and where Sarah died. Those statements were in support of support Lydia's widow's pension. Please let me know about Lydia Allen. Thanks, R.D. Woodlock.
