How did you find us? Researching Benjamin Drake
Who is you Earliest Known Ancestor (EKA)? Benjamin Drake
When and where did your EKA live? Channel Islands, UK & Mid-Tennessee, USA
Comments:
Hello, I'm Wayne Drake, evidently a cousin of yours. If memory serves, the Grandpappy of us all, Benjamin Drake, begat Elijah Drake, who begat Abraham Drake, who begat Silas Drake, who begat George Washington Drake Sr., who begat George Washington Jr., who begat William Drake, who begat W.B. Drake (1928-2010, RIP), who begat Keith Drake, who begat me. Lately, I've been curious about my ancestry. I suppose Drake is a fairly common English surname. And records show that Benjamin did indeed arrive here from English territory (Jersey Island). However, none of the Drake male relatives I've seen *look* very English. For example, William and son W.B. were both very dark, muscular, swarthy, and had flat, broad noses and prominent lower jaws. Either could have easily passed for Italian or Cuban (W.B. was often mistaken for Desi Arnez!). Was it possible that the Channel islands had several residents of Southern European descent? Or (as a somewhat "tongue-in-cheek" yet nonetheless plausible alternative), is it possible that the slavery era Drakes had a few inter-racial liaisons? In any case, I recently had a DNA test, so I should have a clearer picture of my origins pretty soon. Cheers!

Who is you Earliest Known Ancestor (EKA)? Nelson Robinson
When and where did your EKA live? early 1800's
Comments:
I'm descended from Nelson Robinson, b.1809. He married Catherine Lance in 1833 and lived in Upshur Co, WV, until their move to MO in late 1865. Nothing is know about his parents as he was orphaned. It's possible he was reared by Abram Reger and Leah Anne Brake Reger. I would appreciate any information on Nelson. Thanks!

When and where did your EKA live? VA
Comments:
Echoing many of your signers, "This is an excellent website!" I only wish more of my Drake line could participate. My g-g-grandmother was Matilda Drake b. abt 1847, dau. of Jefferson Drake and America Flick, granddaughter of Braxton & Martha Patsy Greer Drake (according to other researchers). Apparently they settled in Indiana for a time, since that is where Matilda married David/Davis Walker Beaty. Their daughter was Viola Patience Beaty, who married James Madison Pinkerton. Anyone who wants to know more or to share is welcome to contact me.

Thank you for all the care and work you have invested in this place.

After 5 years of waiting, I matched a "T" Hopkins from Co. Roscommon, Ireland.

Over the holidays, 2011, I upgraded to 37 markers.
In March, I ran two SNP tests, L21 and L302.
I'm L21+ and L302-.

Genetic Genealogy is very exciting. It helps where paper trails fail.

When and where did your EKA live? Traces to Nova Scotia in 1600's
Comments:
I have been tracing the Robinson family for a number of years. The Robinsons in my family started a small township in Maine called Robinson's Mills. There were lumber mills there. They reached Maine via Nova Scotia. Part of the tree is on Ancestry.com , unfortunately some things are incorrect. I am interested in going further in the research to get back to Great Britain or Scotland. Some of the family is buried in Mars Hill Maine and I have been there to document those ancestors. My name is James B. Robinson and I was legally adopted by my step father Carl Wengler. I would love to find out what Robinson line I came from.

Who is you Earliest Known Ancestor (EKA)? John Leander Drake 1760-
When and where did your EKA live? North Carolina
Comments:
I also have (through others' research) that John Leander Drake's wife was Winnifred Massey. John's father could have been Nathan Drake (1726- ??) who was married to a Ruth Martin. Nathan was possibly a son of a Benjamin Drake 1683-1763 who was married to a Mary Runion d. 1749. This Benjamin was possibly a son of Rev. John Drake 1653-@1741 who was married to a Rebecca Trotter b. 1655? This Rev. John was possibly a son of the Capt Francis Drake mentioned on your site. Is this correct??

My ancestors that I have personally researched are as follows:

Hezekiah Drake b 1790 d??wife was Sarah Elizabeth Barton 1785-@1865(I know where her grave is also)
James Nathan Drake b. 1810 d. 1871 wife was Keziah Champion 1816-1887 from Rutherford Co, NC
(Their graves are in the same cemetery as Sarah Barton Drake, Pleasant Hill in )
then my line goes to one of their daughters,
Sarah Ann Drake 1842-1927 who married Benjamin Franklin Buckner 1836-1928
I am 4 generations past them, so Hezekiah would be my 4ggf and John Leander would be my 5ggf.

Who is you Earliest Known Ancestor (EKA)? Benjamin drake
Comments:
My paternal grandmother was Lorene Olive Drake. As far as I can determine she is descended down through Benjamin - Jacob - Elija - Coleman Young Drake - Albert Vedder Drake - Lorene Olive Drake - Jack Hurst - Ken Hurst.

I'm a careful researcher but I am not a professional one by any means. The information I have is through family history done by a Drake cousin of mine in the past.

Hi,
I liked your set up for your website. I have been trying to decide how to make a family tree website that would be visitor friendly and yours is really nice. I have some possible surname matches in my family. I will check and see if there are any matches. My mother's family were from around Tallapoosa, AL, in fact , all over AL. I'll get back to you if I find anything.

Sir,
can I point out that on your D N A site you have shown my kit number as 75270 but not the information shown above.
It may have been an oversight on my behalf.
Because of the D N A check I was able to align my E K A with several other families which has now taken it back from 1780 to 1685!

Many thanks and keep up the good work.

Nelda,

I have talked with Roberta regarding the Lost Colony Symposium to let her know that I live in the area and will be willing to help where needed.

Has anyone put together a poster or flyer to be displayed/distributed at the Lost Colony Outdoor Drama on Roanoke Island? That might be a good place to garner some participation. If that is something you think might be useful please let me know and I may be able to help.
Don
~~~~~~~~~~
this was the return answer to you...
Don,

Roberta is out of town for about two weeks but she has mentioned your offer of assistance and that of many other wonderful people.

I think that on her behalf, we would love to take you up on your offer. Anything that can bring more attention to the "Lost Colony" effort by a local resident knowledgeable about the area is much appreciated.

Please let us know what you have in mind. Do you plan to be at the conference?

Best Regards,
Ana

I have been following this site and watching the DNA's for some time. I think this is a fantastic site. Thank you, Don, for sharing it with us all.
I have been searching for my husband's line for a long time. I just found out, by coming home thru Raleigh, NC and getting a copy of a marriage bond on a Peter Robinson, who got married in 1867 in New Hanover Co, NC to Anna Eliza (Keeter) Barr, whom is out of Brunswick Co., NC next to New Hanover Co., NC.
I found that Peter's parents names are William and Emeline Robinson. Marriage bond does not mention wife's maiden name,:>(((
It is hard to determine Peter's birth year even a very rough sketch, for census' ages are out of wack!. His wife Anna Eliza lived long enough for me to find her birth month/year which on previous census' were like 7-15 yrs off, each different census.
Peter had a brother by the name of Daniel or Dan. I am lead to believe that he resided in Roberson County, NC at one point in time, when????
Peter and Anna had 3 children together, she brought 3 children into their marriage (Barr children). Peter's issues are Emma Francis b. 14 Mar 1869 NC d. 05 Feb 1940 New Hanover Co., NC, Fanny b. abt. 1872 New Hanover Co., NC d. bet 17 Jun 1880- 1 Jun 1900, Lillie b. Nov 1876 New Hanover Co, NC d. 02 Aug 1959 New Hanover Co., NC.
Emma married Martin Yarbrough 14 Jul 1889 (He was from Montgomery Co., NC, Lillie married Early Ellis bet 16 Apr 1910 - 06 Jan 1920. I find them in VA in the 1930's. I can go no further forward or backwards. If anyone who thinks they may link with William or Emeline or can give me info, it would greatly be appreciated.
I do not know if William or Emeilne was born or lived in Richmond, Va. According to their daughter Emma's death certificate, he was born in Richmond, VA.n
I know of no males in Peter's line or any Robinson line that I could ask them to do a DNA, so I am at the mercy of the internet and others for help.
Happy Hunting everyone.

I have links to a John Robinson of Goochland who married a Elizabeth Parish "makes sense" but have no direct link or dates. They had a son named William Parish but have no written documentation. Thinking of DNA testing to link my blood line to theirs. If there is anyone out there that knows of this family I would appreciate information (maybe listed in the Douglas Register of Goochland). Their son William Parish was buried in Nicholas County Ky.

I have also had my DNA done. I find it interesting in that some of the Robinson's you list on your list are of the E3B2 grouping. My number on the Family Tree DNA site is N16990.
On your list you have a Herman Robinson, my Grandfather had the same name and was born in Poolville, Texas on October 10, 1886 he died on November 22, 1931 in Chickasha, Oklahoma. He moved to Grady County, Oklahoma with his father William Isaac Robinson who was born on July 27, 1857 at Mineral Wells, Texas who died November 19, 1935 at Marlow, Oklahoma.

Go to the following link for the Rose Hill Cementary in Chickasha, Oklahoma where they are buried. All of the Robinson's on this list are related to me. http://www.rootsweb.com/~okcemete/grady/rosehill/r/r1rosehill.htm

Name: Barbara <Blizzard>
Date: 2006-02-09
Comments:
A footnote to what I just sent in, after reading the other comments, I think mine was a bit scant. I am descended from Samuel Drake b. 1624 said to be born in the colonies, who died 10 May 1686 in East Chester, Westchester, NY. He was married to Ann Barlow. My ancestor Richard Headley married two of Samuel Drake's daughters. Richard first married Hannah, then after she died he married Hannah's sister Mary. I am descended from Mary Drake and Richard's son, Richard Headley Jr. My mother is a Headley, born in Iowa. Some people say Samuel Drake was the son of John Drake who died in 1659, at Windsor,CT. who was from Hampton-in-Arden, Warwick, England. John's first wife, Lettice Shakespeare, was the first cousin of William Shakespeare, died in 1623. John Drake married his 2nd wife Elizabeth the same year Samuel was born, 1624. A son of John's lived next to Samuel in Westchester, NY, but John's descendants deny that Samuel was a member of the family because he wasn't listed in the will. So, the big question is: Who was Samuel and how do we prove it? DNA, of course. From what I understand Samuel's father was John Drake who came from Plymouth, Devon, England, in 1606. That is where Sir Francis Drake was from, but he didn't have any children. His nephew Sir Francis Drake, Bart. of Buckland, Co. Devon was his heir. Members of that family went to NY also and you have a great many of them in your research. The goal is to get my Samuel in there.

Hi, cousin! Our most recent common ancestor in the DRAKE line appears to be the Samuel DRAKE, b. 1717, who married Esther HOBBS. One important correction, however: He was the grandson of Abraham, Jr. [1654-1714] and Sarah [HOBBS] DRAKE, not the son. As you can see, his grandfather was dead 3 years before he was born. The generation you omitted was Abraham III [1688-1767] and Theodate [ROBIE] DRAKE. Oh well, I'm sure they will forgive you when we all meet someday. :-) After Samuel, Sr., you descend from John, Sr., and Huldah, whereas I descend from Samuel, Jr., and Mary. I notice, also, that you show John, Sr., as the father of John III. You probably should check again on whether "III" should be "Jr." Otherwise, you have omitted Jr., too. I hope someday that we MARSTONs can look at a Y-DNA chart like the one the DRAKEs have created. One thing our DRAKE line has going for it, even though we have no relation to Sir Francis [Does anyone?]: We share a common ancestor with NEHGS's Samuel Gardiner DRAKE. Of that we can be proud.

I'm just setting up a new computer and am having trouble rmembering my sign in name and password so can't answer you from there. I would like to discuss this with you if possible. My Paternal Grandmother had only one daughter that lived and she had 2 sons so that is why I was looking for one of her sisters who might of had daughters. Your explanation makes sense this is basically what I was told from the Farrell DNA Project also.

I am impressed with your website. I am from the Dutch line of Drakes from New York and ST.Thomas Ontario Canada. I have several generations back to Benjamin John Drake B.1734, D.1817. I am also trying to tie into John Jans Drake B.1687, D.1779. who I believe is the son of Josias Jensen Drake B.1646/7, D.1701. I have over 2,000 indivuals in my data base and spend most of my time searching for the sources.

Don, you have done a remarkable job with this site. One can only imagine the time and effort you have put into this labor of love. Larry will be missed, but with this site, at least his only grandson will know about him and all the other Drakes before him. Take Care,

I received your pages through Rootsweb. This is all so very interesting. My mother was a Robinson and my father was a Thornberry. I don't think we have any direct link here, at least not in the last hundred years, but let's keep in touch.

In my family tree is Wm. Murray, b. 1725, s/o Jabez & Mary Wheeler. The children of Wm. Murray & Diana are: Ephraim, 1760 Bucks Co., PA., Elizabeth, b. 1769 md. Abraham Drake, Rachel, Belinda, Jabez,John, Nancy, William. Is this correct ?. My line comes from Wm. Murray, b. 1789 & Elizabeth Miller, he was s/o of Ephriam Murray & Margaret Doyle. The line connects thru Ruth Tilson & William N. Brown to Joseph Murray & Rachel E. Brown. Wm.J. Murray & Sarah Tilson, gg,grandparents Robt. H. Murray

This is a very nice website. I am looking for any information regarding my Great-Great-Grandmother, Lovice Catherine DRAKE Daniel. She was born in 183? in Newton Co., GA. She was located on the 1850 Newton Co. Census, living with Mary Drake and Charlott Drake. She is listed on Turner DRAKE's "Death Census", but is mentioned nowhere else that I can find. She married Joseph Daniel in the mid 1850's and they had 3 children: Andrew, Sarah Jane and Henry Alden, my GGrandfather. Lovice died and is buried in Calhoun, Co., AL. Any help appreciated.

Great site. My gr-grandfather was Z. T. Drake born in 1847. He is buried beside his wife Anna in Pumphrey Cemetery in Pumphrey, TX. The only information I had prior to your website was from my grandfathers obituary. The obit indicated that my grandfather had migrated to TX just prior to the turn of the century.

Really enjoyed looking at your site. I am a descendent of Benjamin through the line of Jacob, Jacob Jr, John G. Elery Alfred, Doyle(my dad) and then me. I have participated in the DNA project and am #122 or 5935. Really liked the pictures of the cemetary. Could you tell me what the monument says? My family moved to TX somewhere after 1893 by train. We have a very large family and several cousins are planning a trip to Drake's Creek AR to see where Jacob Jr. settled and where my great grandfather John was born. As soon as I can load all the data back into my file I will send on to you for your information. (Had a nasty KLEZ virus) It links the Hadley family (Quakers) and the Ball family of Virginia to the Drakes. Again great job on the graphics and info. Take care for now and GOD Bless. Kelly

While it's only been a quick look, I am very happy with your new site and pleased that I have another place to illuminate my own line. My paternal 4th great-grandfather was William DRAKE b 1755-1759 a Revolutionary War veteran/patron d 06 Jan 1829 Franklin Co., VA. He md Jun 1783 Chesterfield Co., VA, Nancy (Anna) CHAPPELL b 1766-1767 d/o Abraham CHAPPELL and Ann DRAKE d/o William b 1707 & Sarah TURNER? DRAKE b 1710 New Kent Co., VA. William and Nancy's son William DRAKE 1794-1866 would journey on to Hardin Co., KY, and into extreme Northeast Missouri and Southeast Iowa. My great-great-grandfather would rear his family there down to my grandmother my father and me. An obscure line, certainly, here on a not so genealogical research site; but nevertheless a good site/forum as I above stated. Thanks!
