Hello Roy Andrews,
The obit also says that he had a sister Dora Drake in Marion County, Missouri - and then it says he has a brother in Kentucky but does not mention the brothers name.
He was married to Mary Altathera "Allie" Buckman (1851-1926) Allie was born in Monroe County, Missouri,...died in Quincy, IL on April 12, 1926. Allie and George were married in Shelbina, Missouri on October 28, 1869. I know had five children, four girls and one boy. Their daughter Susan Thornton Drake (1875-1948) is my fathers grandmother.
I am hoping you might be able to help find out something about this George Washington Drake - do you have any information about him -or- can you tie him into any family tree?
From the 1880 Census about George W. and his family and then from the 1850 Census I found George's parents ( William M. Drake & Mary A. Drake ) and brother and sisters. Hopefully with all this data I can find out even more about my ancestors on this Drake family tree - it would be great if you could help me trace the line back even further.
Also found that William M. Drake and Mary A. Hampton were married in Faette County, KY on 6/10/1839
It would be great to see if I can trace William M. Drake and Mary A. Hampton families back further.
Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
