Joseph Drake, born 8/7/1840
Right now all I have is Ohio names, but where they came from there is unknown.
Here is all I have:
Have always been told we are related to Sir Francis Drake, and he was my 16th
Uncle. Someone had a Geneaologist do a history, but I have no idea who it was
or where it ended up. Any help out there for me?
Here is all I have to go in:
