TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 --;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You can view digitized copy of original death record, see more details, make printouts, and look for others, too.

You say George and Delilah were divorced. Did she remarry? This looks like her:

1860 census Delaware Co, NY:

Drake, Christopher, 31, b NY - land 1650/personal 400
" Almira, 29, b NY
" Abraham, 29, b NY
" Ira, 5, b NY
" Delilah, 3, b NY
" Miles, 5/12, b NY

Next door, looks like father of Christopher:

Drake, Abraham, 54, b VT - land 1600/personal 500
" Anna, 53, b NY
" Charles, 14, b NY
" Thomas, 11, b NY
" Margaret, 13, b NY

There are several Drake families on that census, one caught my eye as he also was born in VT, could be brother to Abraham:

Preserved, 67k, b VT - land 100/personal 40
" Sarah A., 49 b NY

You might play around with the Drake Forum. An old post -- Abram Drake, b. 1807 VT, mthr's name Lucy, md. Anne Crawford, Delaware Co., NY. They lived in Delaware Co., Chenango Co., Broome Co. NY- both alive in 1880--have some info on dghtr Phebe Ann, son Hugh--little else.

It was posted in 1999 and looks like the submitter hasn't been active since 2001. You might post a new query on there, see if you get any responses for Abraham/Abram. And, you can follow the families on census records. If you have access to you could look for the family in 1850.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
