I am searching for the true death date for Richard Drake, whose will is listed with two dates - 8/30/1760 and 7/25/1780. I am almost sure that the cousin named in the will as executor, Thomas Drake was my ancestor - and that he was married to his cousin Sarah - Richard's daughter perhaps. AND that Richard's daughter Elizabeth was married to John Green, who was the father of another ancestor of mine - Jesse Green. Jesse Green is listed as executor and cousin in Benjamin Drake's will. Benjamin is listed as sole heir and executor of his mother's will, Sarah Drake, 6/29/1784. All this goes around in circles, but the names fit - I just need to fit all the dates - Can anyone lend some info?????
