John Drake and Juliann Olinger had a son
Martin born abt 1827 in either Russell or Lee
Co, , Va. John and Juliann moved to Morgan
Co, Ky in the 1850's (after 1852 from Lee Co, Va.), but Martin is not
on the census of that county, nor in Lee Co.
Children of John and Juliann are (as far as I know): James b,
Martin b. abt 1827
Ira b, abt 1833
Rebecca b. abt 1833
Martha b, abt 1837
Alexander b. abt 1839
Alexander is my husband's qqqrandfather.
We have been
able to find information on Juliann Olinger, but this John Drake has
been difficult to trace. Circumstancial evidence leads us to believe
that he is the son of John Drake and Martha Lester. This John Drake
(husband of Martha) is our "brick wall" The LDS library has him as
the son of Joseph (the longhunter) and Margaret Buchanan, but this is
unlikely since their son John was in Ky , childless while John and
Martha were in Montgomery Co. Va. rearing 10 children.
If anyone has more information , we would
love to hear from you.
Jeanne and John Drake
