Drake Generation 7 in America

 

Gay #330 *

 

1. Parents: Josiah II (6) and Chloe (Cross) Drake of Ashfield, Franklin County, Massachusetts.

 

2. Birth: 3/13 February 1762 in Stafford Township, Hartford Colony (redesignated Tolland Co. in 1785), Connecticut.

 

3. Death: 20/26 July 1844, age 82 in Buckland Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts, though he resided in Antwerp Township, Jefferson County, New York, from complications "of an attack of palsy."  No grave marker found in either Massachusetts or Northern New York.

 

4. US Census Records:

 

1790: Josiah Drake, III and his first wife, Mary (Chapin) Drake, resided in Buckland, Hampshire County, Massachusetts.  The household also included a male child under 16 years of age (perhaps their son, Ziba).

 

1800: Josiah Drake, III was heading a household in Buckland, Hampshire County, Massachusetts.  Household included 1 male under 10 (Josiah, IV), 1 male between 26 and 45 (Josiah, III)), 1 unidentified male over 45 years old, and one female between 26 and 45 (wife, Mary).

 

Note: At the time of the 1800 US Census, no Drakes were recorded living in Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties, New York State.

 

1810: Josiah Drake, III was over 45 years old and heading a household in Ashfield Township, Hampshire County, Massachusetts.  The household also included a woman over 45 years old, perhaps his wife.

 

The following (relationship unknown) Drake heads of households were recorded as living in Jefferson County, New York (not by Gay):

 

1. Gilbert Drake: Born between 1765 and 1775.  His Brownville Township, Jefferson County, New York household included 3 males and 3 females under age 10, 1 female between 10 and 16 years old, and 2 males and 1 female between 26 and 45 years old.

 

Note: There were two Gilbert Drakes recorded in the 1800 US Census: one who was more than age 45 in North Salem & York Townships, Westchester County, New York (who was also heading a household there in 1790); and the other in 1800 was between 26 and 45 years old in Catskill Township, Greene County, New York.

 

2. Lewis Drake: Born between 1784 and 1794.  His Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York household included 1 male under 10 years old and 1 male and 1 female between 16 and 26 years old.  Lewis' next door neighbor was Spencer Woodard, age 26 to 45.  [Lewis could possibly be Ziba Drake, son of Josiah, III; Ziba who would have been 26 years old, and his wife, Silence (Woodward) Drake would have been about 23 years old, and their one child at that time, Almond, would have been about 3 years old, which matches Ziba's household exactly.  However, the name Lewis is written quite clearly, and no record of Ziba being referred to as Lewis has been found.]

 

1820: Josiah Drake was head of a household in Antwerp Township, Jefferson County, New York.  He was over 45 years old and married to a woman (Julia Ann Wallace) over 45 years old.  They had living with them 2 females and 1 male under 10 years of age and 1 male between 10 and 16.

 

The following Drake heads of household were also in Jefferson County in 1820 (see notes for 1810; no known relation to Josiah, III):

 

1. Gilbert Drake: Born before 1775.  His Brownville, Jefferson County, New York household included 2 males under 10 years old, 1 male and 1 female between 10 and 16 years old, 1 female between 26 and 45 years old, and 1 male over 45 years old.

 

2. Charles Snow Drake: Born between 1794 and 1804, which would make him the right age to be one of Josiah Drake, III's oldest child with his 2nd wife, Tirzah (Ward) Drake, who Josiah married in 1791.  His Antwerp, Jefferson County, New York household included just Charles and (presumably) his wife, both between 16 and 26 years old.  Charles lived relatively close to Josiah, III.)

 

Note: No Charles S. Drake found anywhere in the US in 1830 or 1840, though there were many Charles Drakes recorded (none close to Jefferson Co., NY) in that period.  Also, no interment of a Charles Drake with his age parameters found in Jefferson, St. Lawrence, or Lewis Counties, New York.  In 1850 there was a Charles S. Drake, age 47 (b. abt 1803 NJ) and employed as a shoemaker, heading a household in Delaware Township, Delaware County, Ohio.  That household also included his wife, Lucy Drake, age 38 (b. NJ); son, John Drake, age 21 (b. NJ) and employed as a shoemaker; son, Moses C. Drake, age 16; son, Henry Drake, age 13; son, Charles Drake, age 10; son, Adolphus Drake, age 7; son, Octavus Drake, age 4; and B. Taylor Drake, age 1.

 

1830: Josiah Drake was head of a household in Antwerp Township, Jefferson County, New York.  Recorded as "Isaiah."  He was between 50 and 60 years old.  His wife was between 40 and 50.  Had living with them one female from 5 to 10 years old and 2 males and one female from 10 to 15 years old.

 

The following Drake heads of household were also in Jefferson County in 1830 (no known relation to Josiah, III):

 

1. Reuben Drake: Champion Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

2. Toma Drake: Hounsfield Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

3. Bing Drake: Philadelphia Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

4. Chester Drake: LeRay Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

1840: Josiah was the head of a household in Antwerp Township, Jefferson County, New York.  He was employed as a farmer and listed as 78 years old and a Revolutionary War pensioner.  Other members of the household included 1 male 20 to 30 (Martin); 1 female 10 to 15 (Louisa); and 1 female 50 to 60 years old (Julia).

 

5. Biographical Notes:

 

While residing in Ashfield, Buckland Township, Massachusetts Josiah, III deeded land to John and Elizabeth Liscomb on 22 April 1811 (his second wife, Tirzah Drake, also signed the deed).  A second land transaction was recorded in reference 82 on 22 March 1802 as follows:  "Josiah Drake, of Ashfield, gentleman, to Jehial Drake, of Buckland, yeoman, son of Josiah Drake, of Buckland, deceased, relinquish all claim to the estate of 'our father, Josiah Drake,' deceased."

 

Josiah, III lived for a time in Ashfield, Buckland Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts, then Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York (apparently following his son, Ziba, who moved to Rutland, NY with his young family about 1808), and, finally, Antwerp Township, Jefferson County, New York, where he was residing in 1817 when his daughter, Julia A. Drake was born. (historical perspective)  Was also recorded there in September 1832.  Josiah served in the American Revolutionary War; drafted in May 1778 (abt age 16) into the Massachusetts Militia and entered active duty as a Private in Captain Stuart's Company in Colonel Wood's infantry regiment in June 1778.  Marched to Deerfield, Northampton, and Litchfield, Connecticut; then to White Plains, New York, where he served most of his 8/9 month enlistment and was discharged.  He reenlisted for one month in August 1779 at Buckland, Massachusetts, serving in Captain Dinnon's company in Colonel Porter's regiment of Massachusetts Militia.  They marched to New London, Connecticut, where Josiah was discharged.  For his military service Josiah applied for and received a pension of $30 per year under authority of the act of Congress passed 7 June 1832.  The 1840 Census of Pensioners, published 1841 in Washington, D.C. lists Josiah, age 78, as a resident of Antwerp, Jefferson County, New York.

 

A land warrant claim submitted by Josiah’s widow, Julia, indicates Josiah died 20 July 1844.  This is slightly at odds with Gay, who quotes an unidentified newspaper clipping as follows: "Captain Josiah Drake of Antwerp, N.Y. died in Buckland, Mass., July 26, 1844, aged 82 years."  How he may have achieved the grade/title "Captain" is not explained.

 

In the Ashfield, Massachusetts Vital Records this Josiah was called "Josiah, Jr. of Buckland" when he married Mary Chapin of Ashfield.  When he married Tirzah Ward of Ashfield he was called "Josiah, III of Buckland."
