William H Winfrey Drane (CSA/Doctor) of Marion Co. Ga.
(See previous post)
Children-
Dr. W. (William?) Albert Drane born 27 Oct 1860 Marion Co. Ga. died 6 Jan 1932 Buried City Cemetery, Buena Vista, Marion, Ga.

Married aft 1880 Hetty McKennie born 14 Sep 1856 Vad dtr. of Kinchen McKennie and Nancy H
I do not know their children's name etc.-would like to.
Albert went to Washington D.C. with the War Dept. and the following things are written about him:
1860-27 Oct. born....
1870-14 Sep census for Georgia, Talbot Co, Fort Perry Dist, Tazewell PO, p 201 (146A)
Age 10 in 1870 census living in Tazewell, Marion County, GA with parents, 2 siblings, & overseer
1880-7 Jun census for Georgia, Marion Co, Dist 1034, Jacksonville, ED 43, p 17 (164A)
Age 20 in 1880 census living in Jacksonville, Marion County, GA as a teacher with parents & 5 siblings.

A Sumter Boy In Washington

Mr. W.J. Neal, the bright Washington correspondent of the Cartersville Courant, in speaking of "the boys who
represent Georgia, at the national capitol," has this to say of Sumter's representative.

Albert Drane, of Americus, is another of our boys. He has been here longer than any of us and knows more
people than any ten of the others. Why, he just seems to know everybody and I have yet to see the man or
woman to say aught against Albert Drane. He makes a splendid clerk and has, I have no doubt, a lifetime
position at $100 permonth if he cares to keep it. Drane has made money too, and I learn that he has between
three and five thousand dollars to show for his work in this city. Albert tells a good story and laughs so heartily
at his own jokes that his listeners always catch the contagion too. Not a "dry smile" but a regular rousing old
guffaw.

The above from the Americus Recorder is correct except in one essential particular, and that is Mr. Drane is
from Marion and not from Sumter County. He is an excellent young man of fine business qualities, and we
don't think it right that the Recorder should claim him as a citizen of Sumter County.
1890- Census-He would be 30-
1900-5 Jun census for Washington, DC, ED 13, Sh 8B
Age 40 (parents born GA) in 1900 census living at 2819 14th St, home owned free & clear, in Washington, DC as a
government clerk with wife, sister-in-law, & servant.
