Dear Roy 

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!      

Thank you,

I am a new visitor to the Drake Loop and I must say that it is so nice to hear
information about the many Drake families from all over the country/states.  I
don't know if there are many New Jersey relatives but I'm going to give it a

I'm interested in information on Jonathan (John) Drake from Newton, NJ.  He
married Lucinda  Borgoo (Barjs) from Hackettstown, NJ.  Approximate dates:

			Emery 			1846 (Possible name is Moses)
						 * (my great grandfather) 
			William			1850  
			Hannah			1852
			Ellias			1854

The family relocated between 1844 to 1854 in the Milwaukee & Newton Ransom
areas of Clarks Summit.   Jonathan was a team driver from New Jersey, to the
upstate New York area.  Lucy died in 1854 from possible childbirth

Ellias has been found in the 1870 census living in Scranton.   Emery married
Nancy Hall  from Jackson, PA.  They raised a family in Dalton, PA.   Mary
married John Miller, and in 1828 she was living in Mount Vernon, District of
Colombia.  Margaret married Conrad Englebrick from Germany.  William married
Ida May Brown, and they lived in Springville township (farmer).  The other
information on the other children is still pending.

Also looking from information on a Timothy, Joshua, and Jacob Drake from
Sussex County, New Jersey.  they also moved to Newton Ransom area in Clarks

Thank You,
