Hello all Drake families--
Since I am new to the list, I have been reading all of the posts and found
them very interesting. I have not found anything on my Drake family though.
My husband is
Burton Drake--1944 Findlay, Ohio
Harold Drake--1920 Bloomdale, Ohio
Earl Edward Drake-1898 Bloomdale, Ohio
John (Jay) J. Drake--1868 Bloomdale, Ohio
Josiah also known as Joseph was married to Margaret Fry on 1/9/1865 and they
were pioneer residents of Eagleville, Ohio. Josiah enlisted in Company
O.V.I. commanded by General Isaac R. Sherwood. (General Sherwood represented
Wood County, in congress.) Josiah and Margaret had children besides Jay.
Do any of these names sound familiar to any of you. I would like to go back
farther than Josiah but I have not had any luck on the internet. If you know
reply either to the list or to me at
I appreciate everything I can find out.
Good Luck to all of you,
