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 married 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 Parish, Louisiana

A thousand THANK YOUS to anyone who can help this aging citizen identify his DRAKE ancestors.
