I am looking for information about my Drake line. My grandfather was Robert Lloyd Drake (he was refered to as RL) i believe he was born around April 1910 and died in July of 1975 in Dayton, Ohio.
He founded the RL Drake Co. which was in Miamisburg, Ohio, the RL Drake Co. makes ham radios.
He maried Burnice Houchens. They had 4 children, Thomas, Peter, Nancy, and Robert Lloyd Jr my
father(all of whom are still living)
RL's mother was Grace (Wiley or Klayr not sure which one) Drake and Arther Edwin Drake. Arther Edwin was raised by his grandparents, his parents died in a "lovers quarel" as the story goes. This is as much information as I have been able to get from my family. If anyone has any information about this line i would realy appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks in advance
