Subject: Sophia Maude DRAKE
Saw your post on the Aus/nz site. I just happened to be talking with Mum(age 89) last night about her Terry/Folks background. So it's fresh in my mind that there is a Drake on the tree. It is not my direct line and I don't have more info than what's here:
Frederick George Bainbridge FOLKS (b 1861 d.1936) married in 1891 to Sophia Maude DRAKE (d 1953)
They had two children Francis Drake FOLKS b 1893 d 1979 and Edith Blanche FOLKS b 1896 d 1910 of Diptheria.
Mum's recollection of "Aunt Maude" is that she was a big woman, always dressed in black, was slow talking and would cook very plain food like corned beef and cabbage!
They lived up around Dry Creek (near Mansfield, Vic)
