Tammy, my husband, Bruce Drake, I believe is also descended from John Drake 1687.
John 1687>Joseph1721>Joseph1754>John 1782>Isaac 1811>John 1845>Isaac 1878>Keith 1917>Bruce 1946. Much of the information comes from Lillian Avery's work Drake Genealogy in the Line of Samuel Drake of Lower Smith..."
Oh yes I should mention that John 1782 emigrated to Canada in about 1802 and he died here too in Ancaster, Wentworth, Ontario. Some of his descendants later moved on to Michigan and our branch stayed on in Caradoc Township, Middlesex County, Ontario
Bruce has taken a Y-DNA test and I would like to verify with other Drakes in this line who may also have taken the Y-DNA test.
I am especially interested in learning more about Joseph and his wife Sarah Corsen/Carson in Warren/Sussex County New Jersey. I need to connect this couple with Joseph from Orange County that is not far from Warren/Sussex Counties in New Jersey.
If you have any information about any of this I would like to hear from you.
Robin Drake (wife) of Bruce Drake
