Hi - this will update George Lovelace in Essex Co NJ
I have found my John (orJonathan) Lovelace/Loveless and wife Sarah/Sally Drake
in Forrestburgh, Sullivan County, New York census for both 1850 and 1860.
Children Alfred B, Emily Jane, George (my line), Hannah, Sarah, Mary, Rebecca
and Harriett match information in George's family bible.
According to book by Maurice L Patterson, Sarah is daughter of Zephaniah and
Rebecca Shons Drake. Zephaniah is son of Zephaniah and Anna Knapp Drake and
Zephaniah Sr. is sonof Jan (John) and Magdalena Brower.
From what I have read this is the line that had the controvercy over the New
I would love more information on any Drake families in the Orange/Sullivan
County New York area.
Thanks for a great web site
