I made a book relating my grandson's ancestors to American History. Now I need to do the same thing for my step-grandchildren. Since I have been working on my lines for years this is sort of a crash project. I am looking for stories about Henry Arthur Drake of Coy, McDonald County, Missouri, his descendants and ancestors.
Except for a couple marriage licenses, what I have so far is "to the best of people's memory".
Henry Arthur Drake born 1/3/1857
I have his children as:
William (my daughter-in-law's grandfather)
---Is any one else working on this line?
If so where were they in the census records in 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930?
--Is this family mentioned in any local histories?
Has anyone already written a book on this line?
If so, I am willing to buy one.
I have two different last names for his wife-Opal Maude Hobbs or Burdick---I have seen both on the Internet.
Was he married twice, or was she previously married, or have two Henry's gotten mixed up?
From the internet and the book by Michael Drake The Search for the Ancestors and Descendants of Henry Braster Drake of Coles County, Illinois, I think his ancestors have pretty much been confirmed as:
William Drake 7/1/1848 or 1849
Ervin Drake 12/25/1820
Braxton Drake 1773
William Drake about 1740
William Drake about 1707
Does any one have any copies of news articles about the murder of one of Henry's brother's, Willard?, and the subsequent "revenge" by two of his other brothers?
Does any one have copies of the military records for any of the listed ancestors?---or if you have looked them up and can give me the film numbers, we have a library with all the films about a hour from my house and I can go get copies. That goes for the census information too. If I have the information to locate on the film, then I can go get copies, print, scan and e-mail to any one who needs copies.
All assistance appreciated.
Willing to get non-related to us information for you in exchange for work you have already done.
