Dear Cousins,

I am descended from John Drake of Windsor, CT in the following
way - this information from "The Descendants of John Drake of Windsor
Connecticut" by Frank Gay, 1933 (The Tuttle Co, Rutland VT)

John Drake = Elizabeth [other sources say Rogers] - came from Eng.

Job Drake = Mary, daughter of Henry Wolcott (1646)

Job Drake II (born Windsor CT, 1652) = Elizabeth (Clark) Cook(e)
I am descended from this lady TWICE - her daughter by her marriage
to Moses Cook(e) - Elizabeth Cook is my ancestor and then Moses was
killed in King Philip's War, setting up the bith of:

Sarah Drake = Roger Wolcott (Sarah born May 10, 1686) - so I'm
double related to Henry Wolcott the "Mary and John" emigrant too
- in fact, related to about a dozen "Mary and John" passengers,
including GILLETT, FORD, PHELPS, HOLCOMB(E), and GRISWOLD.
