More on Charles Drake

I am sorry there is no "B" in Charles Drake's name. Also, he was not Rev. Charles Drake. He was born in NJ as state in the earlier message. His will was dated 3 Jul 1791, Old Forge, PA. He married Sarah Bryant. Several children are buried with their father in Marcy Cemetery, Duryea, PA near Old Forge, PA where he lived and where his will was made. Am looking for evidences of this family and that of Charles B Drake, a son, b about 1786 m Melicent Knapop (could have been Milla or Millie and William (b about 1816) Drake. I believe William died at an early age because his daughter Emmaline Drake was adopted by his brother,Charles B in 1852 when she was 5 yrs. old. Emmaline Drake was my great grandmother.
