7. Other biographical notes on Josiah Drake I:

 

a. Perhaps named for his maternal grandfather, Josiah Barber.

 

b. On 22 December 1757 purchased seventy acres of land in Stafford Township, Tolland County, Connecticut (abt 20 miles NE of Windsor).Shortly after, on 29 December 1757, Josiah sold his land and house in Windsor Township, also one-half interest in a saw mill and grist mill, called Drake's Mill, on the Hockanum River.Resided in Stafford Township, Connecticut for a number of years.Of interest, a Josiah Drake (probably Josiah, Jr.) of Stafford, Connecticut stated he was of "the Baptist Church, at Stafford, under the care of Noah Alden" and prayed in May 1767 to be exempted from taxes for his support of the established ministry.

 

c. About 1774 probably accompanied his son, Josiah Drake, Jr., to Buckland Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts (straight up the CT River and about 15 miles west of Greenfield, Franklin County, Connecticut).Was the "Deacon Drake" whose death at age 97 was entered in the records of the Congregational Church at Ashfield Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts.

 

d. Religious intolerance may be part of the reason Josiah I moved north and west.He appears to have shared similar Baptist beliefs as his brother, Nathaniel, Jr. and Nathaniel Jr.'s sons: Nathaniel III, Shubael, and Simeon.
