Hi!  I am new to the list and have just been watching.  My search is for
the following:
Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated.

BENJAMIN MICHAEL CLINTON DRAKE was born 19 November
1866 in West
Virginia; died 12 July 1938 in Nicholas County, West
Virginia. He
married (1) Elizabeth E. BLAKENY/BLAKNEY/BLAKELY 4 May
1888 in Clay
County, West Virginia; (2) Dell UPTON; (3) Alice ?;
(4) Rosa A.
HARDWAY.  Need to find his parents.  Found a Benjamin
Drake age 12, a
servant, with Henry and Sophrony BROWN in Clay County,
West Virginia in
1880 Census. The next household in the census lists
Lorenzo D. DRAKE and
wife Philisity. The 1870 Kanawha County, WV Census
lists a Benjamin
BROWN, age 3, as a grandson to Henry BROWN.
Philisity's death record
lists her father as Henry BROWN.  Could there be a
connection or does
anyone have further information?  Thanks for any help.
