When he died, he left a will showing him living in Essex County, New Jersey. His will, dated April 7, 1740, was proven September 29, 1741. Both Rev. John and Rebecca Trotter Drake, who died in 1702 at Piscataway, were buried in the cemetery of the First Baptist Church of Piscataway.

7th Great grandfather: (Paternal) (Barbara Weber Gander> Elizabeth Gander Barton)
Bishop Hans Herr, Lancaster County Pennsylvania
Hans Herr (September 17, 1639 – October 11, 1725) was born in Zürich, Switzerland, a descendant of the Knight, Hugo Herr. He joined the Mennonite religious society. Emigrated to the Palatinate in Germany, which was governed by a ruler who promised them protection and religious freedom. This was satisfactory until the Palatinate fell into the hands of other rulers, when the Mennonites were again subject to sever religious persecution. When this occurred, a number of them visited William Penn in London, in 1707, and arranged terms with him to colonize a portion of what is now Lancaster county, and in 1709, Hans Herr, John R. Bundely, Hans Mylin, Martin Kendig, Jacob Miller, Hans Funk, Martin Oberholtzer, Wendel Bowman and others bought 10,000 acres (40 km²) of land on the south side of Pequea creek. A warrant was issued for the land October 10, 1710, and it was surveyed October 23, 1710. He had six sons, 1 daughter accounted for.

|Michael Brown||RE: Crooksville|
Crooksville is in Perry County, Ohio...southeastern Ohio. Do you have family from Ohio or Virginia?
Don't mean to bother you, did not think yesterday
to mention if you want the Wright's that I have send me an email address. I do'nt mind sending a report. The tree is pretty solid with the usual excaption of a date by a day or two.
Prior George she was married to another. There were some problems which led to divorce. Most of what I know is by stories from family members. George at some point worked for the railroad. My father (born in 1930) has always said they ran some kind of a boarding house in Toledo I think; again stories passed down to him. Through the census I see that they did have boarders. "In the day" The Wright family appears to have been a close nit family. I have a name for 1st am researching it trying to determine the???? The importance being, I have acquired my GGmothers photo albums, there is a picture in it of Alverda, one of the husbands, and a child. No one has been quit sure which one he was but I think if I can determine age of photo, deductive reasoning will take care of the rest. I will be posting on memorial when all is determined. I do not have photo with me at this moment, but my personal feelings are it is George. Stay in touch. Mark
Alverda is my great grand mothers sister. She had been married before. They lived I think in toledo then at some point they moved on up to Mich.

|StoneScrivener||RE: Memorial# 49142399|
The photo you asked about was of Sullivan Maxwell. It was on a postcard from the late 1920s taken of the Drakes gas station. Drakes is, mostly was I should say, a little town near Corning, Ohio in Perry County in case you don't know. I haven't lived there myself for over 50 years. Now probably more famous for its strip pits than anything else. Strip as in strip mining though when I was a kid we "stripped" to swim in them.
K.S. try this link for Benjamin Morgan and his resting place.
|Pat Flanigan Jordan||RE: McCafferty's and Ireland, England|
I will go the "short route" explanation on this one - it can get very confusing. If you have an email address, I can scan and send a couple of obits that might be helpful (in a few days). I have Ishmael Irelan m Margaret England in January 1871. Ishmael was the son of William and Mary Ireland. Margaret (Find A Grave # 88946356) was the daughter of Fredrick England and Rosanna Ward. I have a marriage record copy where Margaret Ann Ireland and Elias England were issued a marriage license in October 1866. I can't tell you the relationship off the top of my head, though. There is also a Catharine Irelan who married an Elias Ward. Her obit shows here the dau of William and Mary Irelan, as well. I believe Catharine and Elias had 13 children, of which 7 survived Catharine.
