I am searching for the Jonathan and Lucinda
(Bargo or Borjs) Drake that left Sussex county (Newton) NJ about 1850 and
settled in the Newton-Ransom area of Clarks Summit, PA. Lackawanna County.
Lucinda was from Hacketstown, and Jonathan D. was supposed to be from Sussex or
Warren Counties. Has anyone wrote on the New Jersey Drake from those areas.
One of their sons was Emery Lawrence Drake. (approximate year of birth was
1845) Possible other children were Margaret, Permelia, Mary, Hannah & Moses. I
am open for any suggestions!
