Dear John, I was just searching around for anything on my great grandfather last night and found this web page. He was Edward Wickens,son of John Wickens. I went to the grave of Drakes in Elletsville when I was a kid. We moved to Boston in 64 and then to California in 74. My grandmother was Alpha Dobson (Wickens) I have pictures of her when Ed was building thier stone house in Elletsville. My mom, Sandy, was born in Bloomington. I am 47, so your wife is probably my mom's cousin or my second cousin. Please e-mail and let me know the family connection. My great Aunt Betty Ann has the family bible with all the Drake info that was on the web page. See Ya Kris.
