Can anyone help me find a John Drake who is married to Fanny Haxton, or Catherine Drake married to Martin Holmes. These are some of the children of John Drake married to Rahamah Ayres. If anyone has any information on these let me know. I don't have any dates except the late 1780's

I have a question regardng some of the information on your 31 October
message. You show Seth Drake b. 28Jun1754 as the son of Joseph Drake b.
20Oct1727. My father had years ago researched our line and had come up with
that same connection. However, I believe his data came from a book (and its
author Fred Sawyer) titled, "The Sawyers...and their kinfolk, the Drakes"
which contained information gleaned from Louis Stoughton Drake's book. It
appears the general conclusion is that L S Drake didn't quite get his
elevator all the way to the top when it came to accurate research. More
recent research by family members has listed Seth's father as Abijah Drake
and that has become our brick wall. Unfortunately the same researcher also
listed the same siblings but changed Seth's birth date to "Abt 1761" which
also changed his order from 3rd to 6th.
Without going into a great deal of explanations of some of my pro and con
impressions of my questionable records, might I ask what documentation you
have for this connection you list? I would appreciate knowing if you have
anything other than I have seen already.

Marv, & Drake listners - any help on Seth, whether son of listed Joseph or
possibly Abijah?
Agree, until the evidence is in. Good luck on our search.
