I have been searching for years for kin to my Jesse DRAKE. He was b. ca 1820 somwhere in NY. He married Lousia GALLINGTON/GALLENTINE 1845 in Athens CO, OH. They had William, Jonathon, Nettie, Celeste, & Louisa at least. All of these children were born in Athens Co, OH. The family then moved to Omro, Green Lake County, WI. William lived out his life there. Daughter Louisa married Austin Eggleston and moved to Scotland MO. Eventually, Jesse and Louisa DRAKE followed and they are buried in Scotland, MO. As of 1925, son Jonathon was said to be living in Walla Wall, WA. I have not been able to find any ancestors for Jesse. I have not found any descendants for any of the children other than my line of William and one of Nettie(m. Henry NORTH). ANY clues would be greatly appreciated! THANK YOU! Please e-mail me...
