I am seeking names and vital dates about the parents and family of James Barnard Drake born 1852 in Cherokee County, Alabama. He married Isabell Kelly, daughter of Richard Kelly, in Dade County, Georgia in 1870. They migrated to Texas in 1870 and settled in McLennon County. They later moved to other counties: Hamilton, Erath, Tarrant, and Hill. They produced 6 children. James was a farmer but may have also been a Church of Christ minister or elder. Any information about this family will be appreciated.
