Drake, Samuel, actor, was born Nov. 15, 1768, in England. He may properly be called the pioneer of the drama in the west. He was quite successful during the first ten or twelve years of his Kentucky career; and afterward managed theaters in Ohio, Tennessee, Missouri and Indiana. He died Oct. 16, 1854, in Oldham county, Ky.
