According to my records (not verified), John DRAKE bc. 1695 Devonshire,
Eng. m. Margaret (or Mary) WELDON also of Devonshire, Eng.  John supposedly
died between 1772 - 1776 in Fincastle Co., KY.  Children are listed as: 
  Margaret Weldon Drake bc. 1725 d. 1798 m. Gen. John SOUTH in KY;
  Lieut. Benjamin Drake, bc 1730 m. Susan SMITH (widow) and supposedly
mother    of Gen. Smith?? (Does anyone know WHICH Gen. Smith??) d.c. 1790
in Davidson    Co., TN;
  Jonathan Drake, bc 1720-1730;
  Enoch Drake, bc 1720-1730;
  John Drake, bc 1720-1730;
  Samuel Drake, b.c. 1719 d. 1795 (poss. Nashville, TN area), m. 1)Mary
POTTLE    2)Mary COX, 1743, Wythe Co., VA;
  Mary Drake bc. 1720-1730, m. James NULL/NEWELL, living in Wythe Co., VA
in    1807;
  Elizabeth "Betsy" Drake bc 1720-1730.

The following are the children info I have for Samuel and his wives:

 1) Elizabeth Drake m. 2/26/1771 William SAYERS, d. KY
 2) Joseph Drake m. Margaret BUCHANAN d/o Col. John Buchanan in 1773 near
Abington, VA (this is found in copy of court case), d. 1778, Boonesboro, KY
(killed by Indians).
 3) Ephraim Drake m. Anna BUCHANAN, d/o Col. John Buchanan (also noted in
court case), d. TN
 4) Samuel Drake m. Margaret PRESTON
 5) Mary Drake m. James CROCKETT
 6) Rebecca Drake m. William NEWELL
 7) Rachel Drake m. Adam SHEPPARD
 8) Sallie (Sarah??) Drake m. Wilson HUNT
 9) Nathaniel Drake m. Margaret CURD
10) Effie Drake m. Josiah LEE
11) William Drake
12) Margaret Drake m. ___LIVINGSTON

A lot of this info comes from 'Early Adventurers on the Western Waters"
Vol. 2, Mary Kegley and the Chalkley Chronicles, Vol. II with some ref.
from "The Kith and Kin of Capt. James Leeper and Susan Drake his wife".  

I have sometimes wondered what happened to the Samuel Drake who received
headrights in Orange Co VA in 1735 though.  Does anyone have anything on
that Samuel?

DOES ANYONE have more info on this William Drake (#11 above)??
