John Aaron DRAKE (called mostly Aaron)
b. circa 1744-1754,
A relatively newcomer to your site, I have seen very little about Drakes South of Pensylvania. The record indicates that there were
many in Virginia. Could it be that the ones migrating South & Southwest
left no descendants interested in genealogy?
John Aaron DRAKE (called mostly Aaron) b. circa 1744-1754, reportedly in
Virginia; d. circa 1812, circumstances unknown; migrated to Carolinas
circa 1774; migrated to Attakapas, Spanish Louisiana circa 1786
Elizabeth Charity CRIEVES or CHEVES b. circa 1748-1758, reportedly in
Virginia of Indian ancestry. Had a son, John Aaron Drake, Jr. b. circa
1774 North Carolina. Had a daughter, Aurelise "Letty" Drake born prior to
their arrival in Louisiana circa 1786. Charity died circa 1815, St. Martin
A thousand THANK YOUS to anyone who can help this aging citizen identify
his DRAKE ancestors.
