Descendants of Edmund Drake

Generation No. 2
2. THOMAS5 DRAKE(EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) (Source: The Visitations of the County of Devon, 299.) was born April 14, 1556 in Kent, England (Source: The Visitations of the County of Devon.), and died April 04, 1606. He married ELIZABETH GREGORY 1587, daughter of JOHN ELFORD. She died March 18, 1630/31.
Notes for THOMAS DRAKE: Thomas Drake was a short, broad shouldered man with very pale skin and a slight red beard. His adventures paralleled those of his famous brother. The first instance known of Thomas sailing with his brother was in 1577 on the "Pelican". Three years later, on the same ship, Francis set sail on his historic voyage around the world. Thomas was aboard the "Pelican" for the voyage. (After putting down a mutiny at sea, Francis renamed the ship "The Golden Hind"). It was this voyage that made Sir Francis England's first millionaire, and Thomas undoubtedly shared in the wealth. For awhile he lived at the corner of Looe Street, in a property his brother had acquired in Plymouth.
He continued to sail with his brother, first captaining the "Thomas", and, later, "The Sea Rider" in the 1589 raid on the Portuguese coast, and "The Adventure" during the Sir Francis' final voyage in 1595.
Thomas lived most of his life at sea. He was at his brother's bedside when Sir Francis died at sea. Sir Francis named Thomas as his executor, and left a large part of his estate to him, including tenements, gardens, parks and other properties in Plymouth. To Thomas' son, Francis, was passed the title that Queen Elizabeth had bestowed on Sir Francis, and he became Sir Francis Drake.
When Lady Drake suddenly died in 1598, the estates that had been left to her, including Buckland Abbey, reverted to Thomas. Buckland Abbey remained in the family until the 1940's. It is now part of the national trust of the United Kingdom, and is open for tours.
Thomas was described as a short, broad shouldered man, with a very pale skin and a slight red beard.

3. FIRST BARONET FRANCIS6 DRAKE (THOMAS5, EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) (Source: (1) The Visitations of the County of Devon, 299., (2) Historical Southern Families Vol. VII.) was born September 16, 1588 in Devon, England, and died March 11, 1636/37 in At Sea.

He married (2) JOANNE STROUD October 05, 1615 in Devon, England, daughter of SIR STROUD and MARY SOUTHCOTT. She was born 1597 in England. Notes for FIRST BARONET FRANCIS DRAKE: Thomas' son, Francis, inherited the Baronet title from his famous uncle. He died as First Baronet, one step before knighthood. In 1628, Sir Francis wrote "The World Encompassed" in which he detailed an account of his famous uncle's voyage around the world, based on accounts by some of the men that had made the voyage. The book has long been the source of most of the information about Sir Francis.

After marrying Mary Buckingham, Francis sailed for America in 1733 with their six year old son, James, and Francis' brothers, Bamfield and Joseph.

16. BENJAMIN10 DRAKE (FRANCIS9, BAMFIELD8, JOSEPH7, FRANCIS6, THOMAS5, EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) (Source: (1) Mormon Church Records., (2) Lineage Book National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Volume CXXXVIII, 251., (3) Bible of Enos Drake., (4) Personal Property Tax List for the year 1787 for Loudoun County, Virginia, 41., (5) DAR Patriot Index, 202.) was born June 10, 1742 in Loudoun County, Virginia, and died March 15, 1827 in Loudon County, Virginia. He married RACHEL DAVIDS January 09, 1762 in Pennsylvania. She was born December 24, 1731, and died January 13, 1803.
Notes for BENJAMIN DRAKE:
Most records give the year of his death as 1822, but the family bible lists 1827 (See bible herein under scrapbook) and that is what is used herein. Also, some records may erroneously indicate Mary Buckingham as Benjamin's mother.
Benjamin served with the Virginia troops in the Revolutionary War, and was pensioned after the war. (The attached New York pension information from the Church of the Latter Day Saints is probably in error. It may belong to another Benjamin who lived in New York). Nevertheless Benjamin is listed in the annals of the DAR and SAR as a proper entry into those organizations. Benjamin also paid taxes for a John Jackson, believed to be his daughter's father-in-law.
Benjamin and Rachel bought 70 acres of land in Loudon County near Harper's Ferry in the Colony of Virginia in August, 1777. His wife died in 1803, and that same year they sold this property. Benjamin, along with Enos and his family were in Goshin Township, Belmont County, Ohio according to the January 15, 1821 census. It is thought that Benjamin died before the family moved to Morgan County in 1825, as he doesn't appear on that census.
The proof of our lineage from Sir Francis brother, Thomas, is through Enos' bible, which establishes that Benjamin was his father. Benjamin's tie to Thomas has been a matter of record. Enos passed his bible to his son, David Benjamin, who entrusted it to his son, Dr. Francis Julian Drake. It was in turn passed to Dollie Amanda Drake and Fred Stanley Drake, the parents of Don A. Drake, who lived somewhere in northern Ohio.
Notes for RACHEL DAVIDS: Rachel is thought to be buried in the Ketoctin Church Yard in Loudon County, Virginia.
Children of BENJAMIN DRAKE and RACHEL DAVIDS are:
21. i. ENOS11 DRAKE, b. September 03, 1775, Loudoun County, Virginia; d. July 08, 1847, Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio.
22. ii. SARAH DRAKE, b. February 20, 1783; d. December 14, 1863.
17. ANNE POLLEXFEN10 DRAKE (JOHN9, BAMFIELD8, JOSEPH7, FRANCIS6, THOMAS5, EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) She married PROSSER.

21. ENOS11 DRAKE (BENJAMIN10, FRANCIS9, BAMFIELD8, JOSEPH7, FRANCIS6, THOMAS5, EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) (Source: (1) Drake Family Bible. A copy from the bible as compiled by Enos Drake and passed on to his wife, Jane, thence to his son son, David Benjamin Drake, thence to his daughter, Allie Mae (Drake) Leach, thence to her nephew and niece, Fred and Dollie Drake, thence to their daughter, June (Drake) Green., (2) Lineage Book National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Volume CXXXVIII, 251., (3) Lineage Book National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Volume CXXXVIII., (4) Bible of Enos Drake.) was born September 03, 1775 in Loudoun County, Virginia, and died July 08, 1847 in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. He married JANE DANIEL September 25, 1800 in Loudon County, Virginia, daughter of DAVID DANIEL and JANE. She was born March 17, 1781 in Loudoun County, Virginia, and died August 31, 1854 in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio.
Notes for ENOS DRAKE:
Enos served as an officer in the War of 1812. In 1813 Enos came from Virginia to Ohio, and in a few years moved back to Virginia. In 1819 he came back to Ohio and settled in Belmont County. In 1825 he came to Morgan County, settling in Penn Township, building the second log cabin in the county. (This is from Morgan County Herald and Democrat, dated February 18, 1895). His tombstone is still standing in the old Baptist cemetery (Mount Olive) located on Morgan County Road #4, southwest of Malta in Penn Township. You reach there by taking Rt. 13 south of New Lexington to Rt. 37. Continue Rt.37 to Rt. 78. Turn right (west) on Rt. 78 to County Road 40. Go south (left) on Morgan County Road 40 past Zion Cemetery (where Francis William is Buried) to County Road #4. Go right on County Road #4 to the old Baptist Cemetery.
The inscription on Enos' tombstone reads:
Remember Traveller as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so you must be,
Prepare for death, and follow me.
Enos was said to be an "over the mountain preacher", that is, he rode the countryside on horseback, expounding his Baptist beliefs.
In his notes herein you'll see the page from his bible that lists his father's (Benjamin) birthday, together with Enos, Jane and their family. This Bible was printed in this edition in 1833, was translated bt Hervey Wilbur, and was approved by the American Bible Society. The Bible was in the hands of Don A. Drake of Brunswick, Ohio for many years. It came to Don Drake in the following way: Enos purchased it in Zanesville, Ohio in the late 1830's: he transfered the then fading information from the family Bible which had been brought from England. The Bible was entrusted to David Benjamin Drake, Enos' son, who then entrsted it to Francis Julian Drake, thence to Dollie Amanda Drake and Fred Stanley Drake, parents of Don A. Drake. The Bible was then passed to June Drake Green when Fred died, and then to Chris Green in 1998. The handwriting is thought to be that of Jane Daniel Drake.

Burial: Mt. Olive Cemetery, Penn Township, Morgan County, Ohio
Notes for JANE DANIEL:
Jane Drake is believed to be buried beside Enos, because the space beside his tombstone has been unearthed, and there is the remains of a tombstone just to the right of Enos' tombstone. Also, there is the remains of a tombstone just to the right of that, thought to be the resting place of their son, Harmon.

He married ELIZABETH ELLEN GOULDING June 22, 1896 in Corning, Perry County, Ohio, daughter of WILLIAM GOULDING and MARGARET SOUDERS. She was born January 06, 1875, and died 1955 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio.
Notes for GEORGE THOMAS DRAKE:
George was born on the old family farm in Morgan County, Ohio, and grew up in Corning, Ohio. He was the class valedictorian when he graduated from Corning High School in the class of 1890. Since it was a small class, it developed strong bonds. George maintained a lifelong friendship with Harry Preston Wolfe, the founder of Wolfe Shoes in Columbus, and, later, the owner of the Columbus Dispatch, and WBNS radio and TV.
After graduation, George secured a civil service appointment as a mail clerk on the rail route from Corning to Columbus, and, later, between Pittsburgh and St. Louis. In 1893 he took a teaching post in the nearby village of Congo, at the same time serving as clerk of Monroe Township. It was there that he took a special interest in another young teacher, Nell Goulding. Though Nell's family had lived above his father's store, he had not paid much attention to her before, due to their four years difference in age. They were married a year later.
A talented orator, his speeches in behalf of the Gold Standard brought him to the attention of General Grosvenor, the U.S. Congressman from the district. With that support, he received an appointment as Postmaster of Corning in 1899, succeeding his father. With the urging of General Grosvenor, he became active in local politics. In 1905, George was elected Auditor of Perry County, Ohio, and moved his family to the county seat at New Lexington. He was re-elected in 1908 by a plurality four times greater than any republican in the history of the county. His re-election was credited to his solid reputation for integrity. In fact, when he took the office he declined a salary. He structured a deal that would pay him a percentage of the increase in tax revenues that he could collect. The railroads had long dismissed any obligations to pay local taxes, and, pushing the railroads hard, this turned out to be a very profitable agreement. His income was more than any public officer, and made him comfortable.
During these years he busied himself in many community affairs, serving as Commander of the Knights Templar, Worshipful Master of the Lodge of Masons, Grand Exalted Ruler of the Elks, manager of the New Lexington baseball team, and director of the Perry County Bank. He was a silent partner in the New Lexington Tribune, quite useful in politics, and many atricles were written championing his talents. He served on the Republican Congressional Committee, the Republican State Executive Committee and the Republican State Control Committee.
In 1910 he was asked by the Republican machine to run for U.S. Congressman from the district. Whether he decided he didn't like the prospects of big time politics or simply wanted to please his Catholic wife, in that year he decided to convert to Catholicism. In any event, in those years this was a death knell to political ambitions. It also caused his brothers and sisters to abandon him.
In 1912, he was approached by a large stockholder of the Washington Brewery Company of Columbus (Ohio), and offered the position of general manager and Chairman of the Board of Directors with stock interest. The company had experienced some financial difficulties, and, aware of his reputation, asked for his help to turn it around. He accepted, and moved his family to Columbus.
In a short time the company prospered, providing George with a nice income. Then, with the passing of the Volstead Act in 1919, the brewery was closed. George was approached by his associate and asked to help found another company to produce a non-alcoholic drink. After some consideration, he declined, citing his age (nearing fifty) as too old to take the risk. His heirs to this day dream of what might have been. The drink was named 7-UP.
After the closing of the brewery, George held various executive positions, retiring as vice president and secretary-treasurer of the G.W. Holmes Company. He also served on the Board of Directors of the State Industrial Bank (now a part of the BancOhio system), a position he held until his death.
George is buried in New Lexington Cemetery, New Lexington, Ohio.

Notes for ELIZABETH ELLEN GOULDING:
Like her grandfather, William Goulding, and her grandson, William Francis Drake Jr., Nell had red hair. Even well into her 80's, her hair still shown as a pale red. She graduated from high school in 1895 (the first girl in her family to graduate from High School), and taught school before her marriage in 1896. She was considered by many to be an extremely intelligent woman. Some liked to say that she was the brains behind her husband's success.

52. DR. WILLIAM FRANCIS15 DRAKE, M.D. (GEORGE THOMAS14, FRANCIS WILLIAM13, JAMES WATTS12, ENOS11, BENJAMIN10, FRANCIS9, BAMFIELD8, JOSEPH7, FRANCIS6, THOMAS5, EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born March 31, 1897 in Corning, Perry County, Ohio, and died July 19, 1953 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio. He married SARAH RUTH GALLIN June 10, 1925 in Somerset, Ohio, daughter of ALBERT GALLIN and MARY OVERMEYER. She was born January 17, 1905 in Somerset, Perry County, Ohio, and died November 09, 1997 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio.
Notes for DR. WILLIAM FRANCIS DRAKE, M.D.:
William grew up in the little town of Corning in southern Perry County. In 1905 his father was elected to the post of Auditor of Perry County. When the family moved to the county seat at New Lexington in 1905, William (Bill) became very good friends with Robert J. Bennett, a friendship that lasted a lifetime, and, even today (1998) the families remain close.
Both boys went to college at Ohio State - Bill to study medicine, and Bob to study dentistry. After college and his internship at Mount Carmel Hospital, Bill returned to New Lexington, where both set up their practices. They met nightly after office hours to have a drink and play pocket billiards. It was during this time that Bill met Bob's first cousin, Ruth Gallin.
Shortly after their marriage in 1925, Bill and Ruth moved back to Columbus where he set up medical practice. He joined the staff of Mount Carmel Hospital, where he served until his death. William was quick to appreciate new concepts, and took a course in the use of x-ray at Columbia University, then buying x-ray equipment for his office at a time when this was extremely rare. He gave freely of his time to the priests and nuns at St. Mary of the Springs College (now Dominican College), visiting them on a regular basis and taking a special interest in their care.
Bill had a very quick wit and a fun loving personality, and was very outgoing. He enjoyed playing golf, and was a member of Wyandotte Country Club, and, later, Brookside Country Club. He especially loved playing Bridge, Poker or Hearts, and was a very good card player. His membership in the Worthington Club afforded him a club to dine out and play cards. He was well read, and had a particular interest in history. William also had a great spiritual side. He could be seen every evening before dinner reciting the daily prayers as required by his membership in the Third Degree Order of St, Dominic.
The years of long office hours - he always worked evenings until near nine o'clock - and his uncontrolable high blood pressure shortened his life. William died in 1953 at age fifty-six. Dr. Drake is buried in the George T. Drake plot at the New Lexington Cemetery.

Cause of Death: Hypertension
Doctor of Medicine: 1922, The Ohio State University
High School: 1915, North High School, Columbus, Ohio
Medical Information: He had a heart attack in 1949. He carried blood pressure of 250/150 at a time when there were no medications to reduce it. He died in 1953 of the effects of the hypertension.
Notes for SARAH RUTH GALLIN:
Ruth was raised on the old Gallin farm, just outside of Somerset. She attended Holy Trinity School, and graduated from Holy Trinity High School. When Ruth's mother died, when Ruth was twelve years old, her first cousin, Nellie Sheridan, became her surrogate mother. Nellie's watchfulness extended to all facets of Ruth's life. All through high school, Ruth's steady boyfriend had been Billy McQuade. Since Nellie didn't approve of the match, she maneuvered to break up the relationship. Just out of high school, Ruth was sent to learn secretary skills at the Palmer Method Business School in Columbus. The separation apparently worked.
The story of the events leading to her marriage deserves telling. Ruth's first cousin was Bob Bennett, and it was through Bob that she first made acquaintance with her future husband. Bob's closest friend was Bill Drake, who now was practicing medicine in New Lexington. When Ruth came down with a minor illness, Nellie sent her to Dr. Drake for treatment. When the examination was over, she asked how much that it cost. Bill replied that the only thing he wanted was a picture of her. Although she had no interest in him at the time, Nellie prevailed upon her to have her picture taken. Ruth then presented it to her doctor with the inscription "For value received."

58. WILLIAM FRANCIS16 DRAKE, JR. (WILLIAM FRANCIS15, GEORGE THOMAS14, FRANCIS WILLIAM13, JAMES WATTS12, ENOS11, BENJAMIN10, FRANCIS9, BAMFIELD8, JOSEPH7, FRANCIS6, THOMAS5, EDMUND4, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born July 20, 1934 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio. He married NOREEN NICOLA DESANTIS August 05, 1959 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio, daughter of PASQUALE DE SANTIS and VIENNA FRACASSO. She was born March 18, 1940 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio.
Notes for WILLIAM FRANCIS DRAKE, JR.:
Bill grew up in Columbus, where he attended Immaculate Conception School, and graduated from St. Charles Preparatory School. During the 1952-53 school year, he attended the University of Notre Dame, studying accounting. Returning to Columbus, he enrolled in pre-med at The Ohio State University, but soon found out that medicine was not his field. After working on a survey crew for a few months, he decided to return to Ohio State to study Civil Engineering.
After graduation from The Ohio State University in 1959, William (Bill) went to work as an engineer with Mansfield Asphalt Paving Company. For years he had been sketching house floor plans, so after a year he left to begin building houses in Columbus (Ohio). From 1960 to 1970 he built custom homes in the Columbus area. In 1970 he took the position as Director of Construction with the Schottenstein Investment Company. In 1971 he was hired as vice president of the American Housing Guild division in Ohio. There he was in charge of all developing and construction operations in central Ohio for a large national home building company. In 1975, he founded Guild Homes with a partner, John Stead. The operation was moderately successful, but a serious disagreement brought about a breakup, and he sold his portion to his partner.
During this same time, he bought a Taylor Rental franchise in Columbus. When the opportunity came, he traded it for one at Lake Worth, Florida. After a year it was obvious that the amount of yearly sales had been misrepresented, and he sold the franchise back.
Returning to Columbus, he took a job for a few months as an estimator for a company that built and serviced gasoline stations. In 1981 he went to work as an estimator/buyer for the apartment building division of Homewood Corporation, Northland Park Homes. After a year he was made vice president, and had a staff of six estimators buying out some $30 million dollars worth of projects a year. In 1984 he founded Northcom Inc. as a subsidiary of Homewood Corp., building office buildings, a library, a fire station and two churches. In 1987 he founded Ambassador Homes as another division of Homewood Corporation.
In 1989 he left Homewood Corporation, and took a position with T & R Properties as an estimator for the Today Homes and Presidential Construction divisions. In 1990 he was made president of Today Homes and Vice President of T & R Properties, positions he held until he resigned in 1995. Up to this time he had been involved with the construction of some 11,000 homes and apartments, a number of commercial properties and hundreds of subdivisions.
In 1995 he began consulting with various builders and developers, giving his expertise to help them develop properties and with "value engineering" their building plans. In June, 1998, he was asked to return to his position with T & R Properties. He resumed the position, remaining until September, 2000.
In October, 2000, Bill went with Edwards Communities, acting as project manager for a 444 unit luxury apartment complex in Cincinnati, Ohio.
A member of the National Association of Home Builders and the Building Industry Association of Central Ohio for more than thirty years, Bill served as association vice president and member of the board of directors of BIA. He was licensed as a Professional Engineer in Ohio from 1968 to 1995, when his license lapsed when it was discovered that he'd forgotten to pay his yearly dues from 1988 onward.
Traveling became a hobby, and Bill and Noreen visited many countries during their lifetimes. Included were England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Greece, Israel, Egypt, Turkey, Spain, Barbados, Martinique, St. Martin, Jamaica, Trinidad, Antigua, Nassau, Puerto Rico and Canada.
