I am trying to find out more about Deborah Drake who married William
Boram Feb. 3 1762 per "Pennsylvania Marriages". I have found a William
and Aaron Booram in the Bucks Co. PA militia in 1777.
Ensign William Boorom is also listed of Bucks Co. in Captain William
Darrah's Co. 21 Sep 1778. A Jonathan Drake is listed as well.
I am hoping to find out more about Deborah, with the hopes of proving
that this William & Aaron Booram are the same listed in 1782 Loudoun Co.
VA. Of note here, also in Loudoun Co. Va is Thomas Drake, I have heard
he is the same Thomas who married Uriah Humphrey Oct 14, 1760 also
listed in "Pennsylvania Marriages".
Aaron Booram Jr. was a tithable in 1784 of Thomas Drake in Loudoun Co.
As far as including my lineage, I am not yet certain that my
Booram/Boorom/s in Loudoun Co. are the same as those Buck's Co. yet or
therefore that the William Boram who married Deborah Drake is the same
as that found in Buck's Co. I have hoped, however, that if I could find
more about Deborah Drake, it would lead to the information I seek. Even
though it certainly appears possible, I have not yet found enough to
prove, so I think the Booram linage I have for the time being should not
be included with those of the Drakes. If I ever prove positively, you
shall be the first to hear from me.
Can anyone help me with this connection?
