Information from HISTORY OF MUSKINGUM COUNTY, OHIO reads: "Early in the spring of 1816 three families emigrated from Jefferson and Frederick counties, VA., to Jackson township, Muskingum county, Ohio, where they arrived on May 1 of that year, making the journey with four horse teams. These families were Robert Drake, wife and four sons, Richard C. Mendenhall and wife and three children, and Joshua Bennett and wife and three children."
My question . . . Who are the parents of Robert DRAKE? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
