John R. Drake Ancestors & Descendants

(Start at generation 1, below.)


Note: Though the focus in this web domain is primarily on the ancestors and descendants of George Edgar Drake, who resided near LeRaysville, LeRay Township, Jefferson County, New York, there are other (equally distinguished, but not closely related) Drake families in that general area of northern New York State, and this annex documents one of them.  Others include families headed by Andrew J. Drake of Sackets Harbor, Henry Drake of LeRay, Henry F. Drake of Black River, Josias Drake and Thomas Drake of LaFargeville.  Also note: Andrew J. Drake of Sackets Harbor was the great grandfather of George E. Drake; see paragraph 5.c.(2.(c.(2) of the Josiah Drake (5) page.
