My only known Drake ancestor is Mary Ann Drake. Mary Ann was born March 8, 1826 in OH. (Possibly Monroe Co. OH)
Mary Ann married James A. Blair, son of Ezekial and Sarah Allen Blair in Monroe Co., OH. Mary Ann died 27 Jan 1909 in Jefferson Co., NE.
I have a great deal of James A. and Mary Ann Drake Blair information. Names of children, places of residence, etc.
I have sought information about Mary Ann for 14 years. Would appreciate ANY help. Nancy Burke

Francis Berchard Drake was born 1809 in New York, but I do not know which county. He married a woman named Nancy A. Drake (maiden name unknown). Their son was Robert B. Drake, but I can find no information on him. He marred a Georgia Fay Hardeman (b. 1857, d. 10 April 1923). Their son, Robert Francis Drake (my paternal grandfather), was born 13 Dec. 1881 and died 15 Feb. 1973. I would appreciate any information on Francis B. Drake or Robert B. Drake.
