Welcome to my Family Tree web site!My brother and I are currently researching information prior to:
William DRAKE (b. 1799 - Ireland, d. 26 Jul 1855 - Salinesville, OH) m. Margaret JOHNSTON (b. 17 Oct 1800 - County Down, N. Ireland, d. 01 Sep 1853 - Carroll Co, OH). Married 26 Dec 1821 - Hillsboro, Ednaculla Co., N. Ireland.
Looking for ancestors of William DRAKE.
Two cousins named William DRAKE married JOHNSTON sisters (Margaret and Agnes) on 26 Dec 1821 - Ireland. Both couples and children as well as the JOHNSTON sisters parents came to US in 1834. Date is known because William and Margaret had daughter (Jane) enroute. (Family bible info). The whole gang soon settled in Eastern OH. We are descended from William and Margaret.
Sibs of William and Margaret: Charles, Elizabeth, Robert, Mary Ann, Jane (Nancy), Sarah (Sally), Margaret, Sophia, John Wert, Lydia. We are descended from John Wert DRAKE. John Wert and Charles walked from OH to Richland Co, WI in 1854.
Margaret JOHNSTON parents are:
Robert JOHNSTON (b. 1767 - Co Down, N. Ireland, d. 7 Aug 1839 - Columbiana Co, OH) m. Elizabeth CARNES (b. 1771 Co. Down, N. Ireland, d. 18 Jan 1855 - Columbiana Co, OH). No marriage date. Childern info: Jane, Agnes, Margaret, Mary Ann, Robert, James Henry, Elizabeth R, Hugh Carnes, Sarah Carnes, Thomas.
