Drake Generation 8 in America

 

Gay #599 *

 

1. Parents: Captain Josiah III (7) and Mary (Chapin) Drake of Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York.

 

2. Birth: 17 October 1784 in Massachusetts.

 

3. Death: 9 June 1852, age 67, in Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York.  Interred in lot C-43/44 of the Felts Mills Cemetery on Route 3 in Rutland Township (point of contact: Felts Mills Cemetery Association, PO Box 46, Felts Mills, Jefferson Co., NY).  By July 1993 Ziba’s grave marker (white marble of classic thin design) was broken off at the base and imbedded face up at ground level behind the base.  The inscription read, in part: “Died June 9 1852, AE 67 y’rs.”  Will recorded in Jefferson County, New York Surrogate Court records (Volume 2, page 132) maintained at 163 Arsenal Street (3rd Floor), Watertown, Jefferson County, New York.

 

4. Biographical Notes:

 

About 1808 moved his young family from Buckland, Franklin County, Massachusetts to Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York. (historical perspective)  Employed there as a carpenter.

 

Of interest, Gay * indicates both Ziba and Silence were interred on the Clark Farm, Rutland Hollow, which is some distance from the Felts Mills Cemetery.  There were six Clark households in Rutland Township in 1850.

 

5. Census Records:

 

1790 US Census: Ziba Drake was under 16 years old and resided with his parents in Buckland Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts.

 

1800 US Census: No record found for Ziba Drake as head of a household.  Would have been about 16 years old, single, and (probably) a resident of Buckland Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts.  Perhaps employed by a neighbor as a farm hand, since he was not listed with his father.

 

1810 US Census: No record found for Ziba Drake as head of a household anywhere in the US.  He would have been about 26 years old, married, and probably a resident of either Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York or Buckland Township, Franklin County, Massachusetts.  His wife would have been about 23 years old, and his one child, Almond, would have been about 3 years old.  He was not part of his father's household in Ashfield Township, Massachusetts.

 

Note: There was a "Lewis Drake" (quite legibly written on pg 542) heading a household in Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York.  That household included 1 male age 16 to 26; 1 female age 16 to 26; and 1 male under age 10, which mirrors exactly what Ziba's household would have looked like.  Of interest, Lewis' next door neighbor was Spencer Woodard, age 26 to 45 and his family, perhaps a relative of Ziba's wife, Silence (Woodward) Drake. (note: Woodward and Woodard are frequently interchanged in US Census records).  "Lewis" could be "Ziba;" no prior or subsequent record of a Lewis Drake found.

 

1820 US Census: Ziba Drake, age 26 to 45, resided in Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York with two males (Josiah and Austin) and one female (Maria) under 10 years of age, one male (Almond) between 10 and 16, and one female (Silence) between 26 and 45 years of age.  Ziba had one free, colored hired hand residing with him.

 

Of minor interest, another Ziba Drake was heading a household in Sharon Township, Norfolk County, Massachusetts.  That household included 2 males under age 10; 1 male age 16 to 18; 2 males age 16 to 26; 1 male age 45 or more; 1 female age 16 to 26; and 2 females age 45 or more.

 

1830 US Census: Ziba Drake, age 40 to 50, resided in Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York with one male (Austin) and one female (Maria) 10 to 15 years old, one male (Josiah) 15 to 20 years old, one male (Almond) 20 to 30 years old, and one female (Silence) 40 to 50 years old.

 

1840 US Census: Ziba Drake, age 50 to 60,  was heading a household in Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York with one male (probably son, Austin) age 20 to 30 and one female (Silence) age 50 to 60.  One of the men was engaged in agriculture, the other in manufacturing and trade.

 

1850 US Census: Ziba Drake, age 66 (b. MA) and employed as a carpenter, was heading a household in Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York.  His real estate was valued at $600.  The household also included his wife, Silenc Drake, age 63 (b. MA); son, Josiah Drake, age 38 (b. NYS) and employed as a carpenter; son, Austin Drake, age 34 (b. NYS) and employed as a laborer; granddaughter, Hellen/Ellen A. Drake, age 14 (b. NYS); granddaughter, Gaicia P. Drake, age 10 (b. NYS); and granddaughter, Louisa J. Drake, age 5 (b. NYS).  Of interest, the household headed by Ziba's son-in-law, William Roberts, age 32 (b. NYS) and employed as a farmer, whose real estate was valued at $2,000, was enumerated next door.

 

6. Wife: Silence Woodward (photos) (more info) (1787 – 1870)

"Tilly"

 

Perhaps the daughter of James and Silence (Harvey) Woodward, this younger Silence was born about 1787 in Massachusetts (per census records).  She probably married Ziba Drake about 1806.  About 1808, one year after their son Almond was born, Silence and Ziba moved to Rutland Township, Jefferson County, New York.  Perhaps the “Miss Drake” shown on an 1860 map on what is now Route 3 adjacent to the residence of her son-in-law, William Rogers, and a short distance west on the same road of her son, Josiah Drake.  Interred in lot B-131 of the Felts Mills, New York cemetery on Route 3.  Silence's son, Austin, shared her obelisk-shaped headstone when he died 15 years later.

 

a. Parents: James and Silence (perhaps Harvey)* Woodward

*(if so, daughter Silence, was born when this James and Silence had been married about 46 yrs)

 

Note: The only Silence Harvey recorded as born in Massachusetts in the 1700s, per Massachusetts Vital Records, was born to David and Silence (Cole) Harvey at Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 9 November 1768, more than 27 years after the marriage of James and Silence Woodward on 19 June 1741 at Taunton.  It's likely that Silence Harvey (b. 1768) is the woman who married Elisha Harvey on 3 April 1787 at Taunton.  David and Silence (Cole) Harvey had the following children in Taunton Township:

 

·     Silence Harvey: Born 9 November 1768.  Perhaps married Elisha Harvey on 3 April 1787 at Taunton.

·     Amittai Harvey: Born 12 November 1770.

·     David Harvey: Born 21 May 1774.

·     Elizabeth Harvey: Born 22 February 1777.

·     Stimpson Harvey: Born 30 April 1780.  Married Louritta Briggs of Norton, Massachusetts (intent recorded 9 Apr 1846).

·     Barzillai Harvey: Born 25 November 1784.

·     Barnabas Harvey: Born 2 October 1786.  Died 24 September 1823, age 37.

·     William Harvey: Born 28 June 1792.  Died 4 February 1838, age 45 years, 7 months, 7 days.

 

Note: No record found of children born to James and Silence Woodward in Massachusetts.

 

b. Birth: About 1787 in Massachusetts (per US Census records).

 

c. Death: 7 May 1870, age 83, in Rutland Township from complications of old age; interred there in plot B-131 of the Felts Mills Cemetery with an obelisk-shaped head stone.

 

d. Census Records relating to Silence (Woodward) Drake:

 

1790 US Census: The 1790 Census for Massachusetts included two households headed by a James Woodward.  One was in Conway Township, Hampshire County (same county and very close to Ashfield and Buckland Townships, where Ziba resided).  That household included James, 2 males under 16 years old, and 4 females, one of which might have been Silence.  The other James Woodward household was in Franklin Township, Suffolk County, a significant distance from the Drakes in Ashfield Township.

 

There were 7 other Woodward households in Hampshire County, Massachusetts in 1790: Daniel, John, John, Joseph, Josiah, Ephraim, and Ebenezer.
