Still searching for additional information on Simeon and his parents.  Simeon 
was born about 1812 in Ohio.  He married Rachael Scarlett, daughter of Thomas 
and Catherine Scarlett.  She was born about 1818 in PA.
They had 7 children (Eliza, Ann, William, John, Rebecca, Simeon Oliver, & 
Catherine) - all born in Carroll County, OH.  
I have found Simeon beginning with the 1850 census (Thanks Barb!).  I also 
note that there was a woman living with Simeon named Rebecca, born MD, also 
in the household. Based on her age, I am "assuming" that she may have been 
his mother.  Age shows she would have been born in 1776 - so that is a 
possibility.  Census for 1860 and 1870 show that wife Rachael was not living 
there, but the 1870 shows another woman (possible second marriage or sister) 
living in the household who would have been born around 1813 and was lited as 
occupation: Keeping House.
My direct line follows Simeon's son: John (m. Mary Elizabeth Lewers), their 
son David Albert Skeeles Drake (m. Mary Martha Oyer), their daughter Wanda 
(m. Philip Heider), their daughter Joan - my mother.
Any additional help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Bobbi
