The Drake Family that I am a descendant of was, for the most part, from 
Greensboro, Alabama (that is that I know of).  The earliest that I have 
listed is John T. Walton married L.F. (unknown last).  They had 6 Children:  
Lucy (b,1844), Elizabeth, William, Chely A., Allace, Joseph.

Lucy Walton married Alpheus B. Drake(b,1843)15 Nov 1864 in Perry County, 
Alabama.  They had two sons:  William (Dec 1868-1937) and Alpheus (died in his 
early 20s with TB, I think).

William married Mary L. Wilkerson(Nov 1874), 30 Nov 1895 in Hale Co., 
Alabama.  They had 5 children:  Edith (Aug 1897), Walton Bryant(May 
1900-1969), Alpheus B.(1902), Joe P.(1904), and Lucy C.(1907).

Walton Bryant Drake married Annie Pearl Crawford(1902-1972) 24 Aug 1924 in 
Hale Co, Alabama.  They had 7 children:  Harry(1927-1999), Bryant(1928), 
Mary(23 May 1929), Jannie (1930), Marie(1931), Doris(1932), and Laura(1933).

Emmit Eugene Crawford (Jan 1859) and Fannie Rebecca Brodnas (Oct 1872)Parents 
of Annie Pear Crawford, married 15 Feb 1888 in Hale Co, Alabama.  They had 8 
other children besides Annie Pearl, as follows:  Lucy E., Maggie B., Eugene 
E., Flossie F., Racheal, Feland, Fletcher M. and Eddie(?).

I know have more info on Annie Pearl's brothers and sisters yet to be 
gathered.  Some are still living and the info is at hand - just needs to be 

I also have info on Bryant and Annie's children, available  upon request.  If 
any of these names sound familiar, please contact me at  
I would appreciate any additional info, and will help in any way possible.
