I am looking for cousins who are descendants of Charles Drake and Ruth North Drake, who lived and died in Syracuse NY. I have a family photo in which Ruth appears but I don't know which woman she is. In the photo is her father, John North and all the siblings. (I'd love a photo of Ruth-will share the family photo!) Yes, I'm a descendant of the Norths!
Here's what I know about them.

Can you be more specific as to who you are looking for. I do a lot of research on the Drake surname in New York and it includes all the various Drake lines there. I need names, locations and dates to help you.
I'm just beginning my research - found this site and thought it might be a great resource. My father is Charles W. Drake, born in Spencer, NY. His father was Leon Drake. I'll try to get more information and update the thread as I receive it. I know a cousin and an aunt are working on researching this as well, but I rarely see or talk them as I live pretty far away from them both.
I am looking for more information on John Drake, born about 1812 in New York. His home in 1850 was Erin, Chemung, New York. His wife's name was Elizabeth and he had several children: George b. August 1841, Frances b. abt 1844, Harmon b. abt 1846, Mary b. abt. 1847, John b. abt. 1856 and Sophronia b. April 05, 1863. There was possibly another daughter named Susan, b. abt. 1853. All the children were born in New York except Sophronia who was born in Minnesota. Their home in 1875 was Rock Dell, Olmsted, Minnesota. Sophronia was my Great Grandmother. She married Albert Hutchinson Morden and lived in Morden, Manitoba, Canada.
Could you help me find more about this family, in particular John's parents and what Drake line he came from. Thank you.
Hi Ray Drake here.
I was just wondering gggrandfather came from somewhere in New York State. He was born in 1814 his name was Joel Drake.
His father was John Drake and his mother was Mary they die and are buried in Calhoun county Michigan. The trail goes cold there. I had dna test done it seems that I am decended from Capt Francis Drake of Piscataway New Jersey. I cannot connect John Drake to Piscatawy only by DNA. I was wondering if anybody has any clues?
