Rebecca, my 7th great-grandmother, was born in Newbury, Essex Co., MA, the daughter of William Trotter (1630-1676) and Cutbury Catherine Gibbs (1628-1667).

She married John Drake, son of Capt. Francis Drake (1615-1687) and Mary Walker (1625-1688), on July 7 1677 in Piscataway, NJ.

Rebecca and John had fifteen children: John (1678-1758), Francis (1679-1733), Joseph (1681-1758), Benjamin (1683-1763), my 6th great-grandfather 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-).
