Captain Andrew Drake (1684-1743)

Birth:
Son of Captain George Drake (1651-1709) and Mary Oliver (1657-c1709).

Marriage:
He married Hannah FitzRandolph (1689-1742) and they had 12 children with eleven listed in his will: Johanna Drake (1705-?) married Tristum Manning; Jeremiah Drake (1707-c1759) married Martha Dunn; George Drake II (1709-1776) married Elizabeth Stelle (1711-1768); Mary Drake (1711-?) married Gershom B. Lee; Edward Drake (1713-?) married Mary Vail; David Drake (1715-1747) married Sarah; FitzRandolph (Randolph) Drake (1717-1791) who married Rachel Drake who was his cousin; Lydia Drake (1719-?); Susannah Drake (1722-1781) married Isaac Smalley, Jr; Sarah Drake (1724-?); Catherine Drake (1726-?) and Andrew Drake (1728-1731).

Burial:
Andrew Drake's grave has two tombstones, a large elaborately carved headstone and a smaller equally beautiful footstone. This footstone is a rare specimen, few from the 1700s survive intact and in situ. Most footstones in cemeteries were removed to make mowing the grass easier. This appears to be the second oldest extant tombstone in the cemetery. The oldest belongs to Elizabeth (1677-1731), the wife of John Sutton (1674-1750).
