I am looking for information on my great grandfather James Paterson Drake .
He was born Feb. 15 1830 in Cumberland Gap Kentucky , and died Feb. 23 1917 .
He was a Civil War vet. and lived in Nebraska at the time of his Death.
The information I am missing now is what unit and where he served during the
Civil War .
I'm also looking for information about James Minter Drake and Jane
Childers Drake , James Patterson Drakes Father and Mother, I think that
they were born in England and moved to Buncombe County in North Carolina
, But we do not know if this is true.
Information about these People will also be a help.
Thank you for your time and energy , it is helpful to have a site like
