Martin Drake

Date: Wednesday, 7 April 1999 1:03

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,
abt. 1822
             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. Thanks

Jeanne and John Drake
