RE: Sir John Drake
Hi, My 9th Great Grandfather is Sir John Drake b.1566 but my family line starting in the U.S. is from Thomas Drake b.1635 who settled in Weymouth. My Drake line after Thomas settled in Stoughton and Easton MA. I ran across this post that may help you ---- ď I don't think any of Thomas Drake's descendants went to Maine as far as I know. The Drake Family I am researching descends from Sir Bernard/Barnard Drake, a possible cousin of Sir Francis, as per Sir Francis. These Drakes were in Weymouth and Taunton, Mass. before Oliver Drake, a marine and also patriot at "The Battle of Bunker Hill," moved to Maine in 1782. His son Elisha Drake married Abigail Roberts. Their youngest son Moses F. Drake is the one I'm looking for information on. He married Phoebe Halstead in Henry Co., IL; they lived in IL, Iowa, and Washington State. Moses died in Portland, Multnomah Co., OR March 6, 1905, but no one seems to know what happened to him after that - no known burial place ď. So I donít think there is any direct connection with my line to Oliver but possible very distant relative. Hope that helps. Doug

RE: Thank you Kyle
You're welcome. It was a relaxing way to spend some time. If you need any others just let me know. I'm researching my own family history and I know how nice they are to have. Please feel free to share with anyone you like.
