I am researching the ancestors of Gideon Drake, Sr. Gideon Drake, Sr. was born
October 03, 1800 in Mason County, Kentucky and died February 05, 1895 in Decatur
County, Indiana. He married (1) Susannah Mitchell October 30, 1822 in Brown
County, Ohio. She was born November 06, 1804, and died February 05, 1895 in
Greensburg, Decatur County, Indiana. Family stories indicate that Gideon had a
brother, Hiram, and was the son of Josiah Drake. However, I have no additional
information on Josiah, Hiram, or Gideon's mother.
For more information on the descendants of Gideon, please see the
database/lineage page on this web site. I would love to hear from anyone who
might have information or stories on either the ancestors or descendants of
Katie (Blackmore) Gudgel
And thank you Roy for posting this.
