Elizabeth Drake, dau of Captain John Drake, married first a Joyce, and
second William Corey. The Drake-Corey marriage is recorded as 03 Apr
1743. The birth of their first child, William Corey is recorded as
possibly 06 May 1743, one month after their marriage. Original records
were partially destroyed so the last digit of the year is not legible.
The year could have been just as east 1744. Can anyone help me with
Also, Elizabeth Drake was the daughter of Captain John Drake. Does
anyone know what he was the Captain of? militia? seafarer?
