RE: Noah Drake
Grainne,
Noah's first wife (I believe his first) was Goldie Pickerel, they had Bettie Jean Drake who only lived for 7 days. Bettie Jane DRAKE

Birth 24 JAN 1923 Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio, USA

Death 31 JAN 1923 Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio, USA

I do have the certificate and it is posted on my Ancestry pages, I can't post it here but will email it to you.

here is the Ancestry page link:

They were living at 610 Creighton Ave in Dayton and Bettie Jean is buried in Woodland Cemetery.

RE: Anna
Good morning from NYC!
I was referring to the Find-A-Grave page I believed you maintain for the listing of Annie Moore (1874-1924), recorded as the first immigrant processed through Ellis Island, on January 1, 1892.

Her real first name was Anne; she was from Ireland and she married a man called Joseph Schayer, a bakery clerk and lived the rest of her days in the Lower East Side in Manhattan, NYC.

I thought you were listed as sponsoring her page - perhaps in going through pages, I got my information mixed up.

Best regards,
Kathy

RE: Noah William Drake
Grainne,
Thanks so much for the reply that helps a lot to understand the relationships. I recently found a lovely picture of Frederick and his lovely wife Mary Ellen tending to their chickens, I have posted it on Ancestry. Thanks to your pictures of her I was able to identify the photograph. If you would like a copy, please let me know.

I will look for the ship that they came over on, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

I did know of Mrs. Connoly passing, I am in touch with her son Carl. I am very sad to hear the news of Agnes Marie passing though.

My love and best wishes for a very happy new year.

Noah William Drake
Grainne,
I wonder how Noah came to be thought of as Irish? The Drake line is German as we well know and if his father removed the kids to raise them then I wonder if the Iraih streak was a nod to his Mother?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Thanks,
Cousin Gordon

Helen Fairchild
Since you sponsored the page for Helen Fairchild at the Somme American Cemetery in France, I thought you would be interested to know that I just discovered she also has a marker in the Watsontown, Pennsylvania, Cemetery. (See Find A Grave #125985607). I am working on trying to find out where her parents are buried so we can link them.
