was born ca. 1779,
Henry DRAKE was born ca. 1779, I know not where. He married Nancy E.
ELLIS. She was the daughter of Samuel ELLIS and Mary FRYE who were both
born in MD. and moved to Washington Co. PA then onto Brown Co., Ohio.
Henry DRAKE and Nancy had at least 3 children. I have names for 2.
- Catherine DRAKE born 18 MAY 1809, maybe in Ohio. Married Jesse Heizer on
22 MAR 1831. Brown Co, Ohio Died 30 OCT 1881 Brown Co, Ohio.
- Francis DRAKE born ca 1811. Married Sarah Cahall in Brown Co, Ohio. He
was murdered on 17 OCT 1843.
Henry died 18 OCT 1832, at age 52 in Brown Co., Ohio. He was buried in
Wall Cemetery, in Pleasant Twp. This is all I have on Henry and his
family. Questions have been raised if he had brothers named.....
- Josiah Drake, died across Ohio River in Mason Co, KY 1809
- Cornelius born 15 MAR 1781, married Fanny Witherspoon 19 OCT 1803 in
Mason Co, KY, died of Cholera on 14 June 1833 in Brown Co, Ohio
There was also a Rev. John Drake in the area said to have been born in NJ.
I am very confused on this line. I don't know Henry DRAKE's parents. Can
any one help me with this?
