Rev. John Drake, my 7th great-grandfather, was the son of Capt. Francis Drake (1615-1687), not the same Elizabethan era English navigator Sir Francis Drake, and Mary Walker (1625-1688).

John married Rebecca Trotter (1655-1702), daughter of William Trotter (1646-) and Cutbury Gibbs (1631-1667), on July 7 1677 in Piscataway, NJ.

John and Rebecca had fifteen children: John (1678-1758), Francis (1679-1733), Joseph (1681-1758), Benjamin (1683-1763), Abraham (1685-1763), Sarah (1686-1749), Isaac (1688-1759), Jacob (1690-), Ebenezer (1693-), Ephraim (1694-), Rebecca (1697-1749), Abigail (1699-), Hannah (1699-), Mary (1700-1740), and Elizabeth (1702-).

Although there is no headstone for John, there is a plaque at the church where he is shown as being the first pastor, continuing for fifty years. John also served as a civil magistrate.

He was married twice after Rebecca's death He married Barbara Scott on July 8, 1707 in Philadelphia; nothing is known of the other.
