William Izaiah (Zed) Drake
Hello to the Drake Exchange. My name is Ken Drake. I live in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada, and I am searching for information on part of the family of William Izaiah (Zed) Drake in Wyandotte County, Kansas.

William Izaiah Drake was the son of Joseph Francis Drake and Mary Ella Ellis, and was born in Bethel, Kansas on July 5, 1873. Zed had one brother, Ernest Leonard who was born in 1879. Mary died on July 15, 1885 and Joseph married Jennie Atkinson in 1886. Joseph and Jennie had one son, Herbert Leroy, on Nov.3, 1889. Zed Drake married a woman whose first name was Hilda. We do not know what her last name was. Zed and Hilda had two daughters, Nellie M in 1891 and Minnie Agnes in 1894. The marriage of Zed and Hilda did not endure and we have been unable to locate any trace of these two girls. Zed later married Kathryn Olivera and they moved to Alberta. They were my Grand parents. The last census records we were able to locate showed that the girls were 18 and 15 years old in 1910 and were in Kansas.
We would appreciate any information relating to these two girls and also to any other descendants of the Drake line from Kansas.
