Hi Barb, I am new to the list but thought I would jump right in. One of
my ancestors is Elizabeth Drake (b abt 1773 in New Jersey but grew up in
Kentucky (probably Bullitt or Jefferson Co) d Sept 27, 1835 near Wilminton
(Clinton Co.), Ohio). She married Jesse Hughes (b. abt 1767 in Berekeley
Co, VA (now W VA), moved to Chester Co. PA at an early age, moved to
Jefferson Co, KY with his uncle (unknown name) in 1784, moved to Clinton
Co, Ohio in 1803 or 1805 and d. there Aut 9, 1853) in Bullitt CO, Ky in
All this info comes out of "History of Clinton County" by W. H. Beers 1882.
Unfortunantly, I have not been able to find out anything about either of
their parents and am looking for any help I can get.
Thank you very much,
