I've been searching for More information on Benjamin Franklin Drake born Oct.8,1876 in Shawano, Wisconsin and died April 18,1948. His parents were Robert Drake born Sept.13,1846 in Chenango,NY and died May 12,1932 in Kenosha, Wisconsin married to Ellen Robbins on May 29,1869 in Shawano, Wisconsin... her parents were Steven Robbins and Sarah Wright. I know he married Dora Murphy (Edwards) born 1880. I know they had children... my grandmother is one... Vivian Louise Drake born in 1918 and Myrtle born in 1916. This was a second marriage for Dora... she had previously married Edward James Murphy who died in a rail road accident around 1910-1911 (of which I can find no records of) and five other children between 1904-1911. Most of this is from my fathers reunion book. I can find no other records for a Dora (Edwars Murphy Drake) except her death record in California. If anyone has information on this particular Drake line I would greatly appreciate it...
