William & Mary Drake 1860 - need some help please
Posted by: Peter (ID *****4090) Date: March 17, 2003 at 12:55:44

Hello,
I could use some help with information about the following...

I have traced my great, great, great grandparents to Mercer County in the 1860 Census. Their names were William M.Drake-47 years old-Farmer & wife-Mary A. Hampton-40 years old. I would like to learn what ever else I can about my Drake and Hampton ancestors. I also would like to learn when and where they passed away. They had five children:
**
1)Drucilla-20 yr old female
2)George W.-18 yr old male-Farm Hand
3)Eudora-14 yr old female
4)Madison J.-10 yr old male
5)Florida P.-6 yr old female
**
William M. Drake and Mary A. Hampton were married in Fayette County on June 10, 1839. They can be found in the 1850 Census-living in District 1, Fayette County, Kentucky. William is listed as a Carpenter in this 1850 Census.
I descend through their first son George Washington Drake, who served in the Civil War in the Confederate Army - his obituary dated Nov.15, 1888 from the Quincy Daily Herald newspaper in Quincy, Illinois - Adams County, says that George W. Drake was a captain in the Confederate Army and served under the command of General Morgan and that he was a prisoner during the latter part of the war in the Alton, IL prison. I am hoping to find out more about his military record.

In the 1880 Census George W. Drake and wife Mary Altathera "Allie" Buckman live in Washington, Buchanan County, Missouri. George and Allie Drake had four children: Martha, William, Susan (aka Fannie) & Mary. In an 1887 City Directory they are found living in Quincy, IL. Allie lived until 1926. Fannie Drake (1875-1948) is my great grandmother.

Thank you,
Peter Curran
