Hello, Susan!

Drake's in New Jersey were fond of using many of the same first names (over & over & over) - and
this would extent into several generations, as well as over-lap ( such as siblings, cousins,
step brothers,etc...).

Do you have any idea where they were living when
this census took place ( town, township, county)>

Knowing which area & county will make a big difference in narrowing the field.
