Cornelis Drake1

b. 11 March 1696, d. February 1779
  • Cornelis Drake was baptized on 11 March 1696 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York; sponsors Barent Tilburg, Johanna van Swanen.2
  • He married Maria Louwerse Tours, daughter of Lourens Arentszen Toers and Francyntje Thomase, at New Jersey before 1720.1
  • Cornelis Drake died in February 1779 at probably Passaic, New Jersey.3
  • Cornelis's name also appears as Dreek; (Acquackanonck Church Records).4
  • He was a member of the at Protestant Dutch Reformed Church, Acquackanonk (Passaic), Essex Co., New Jersey, on 31 March 1726 as Cornelis Dr(ee)k, by letter.5
  • He and Maria Louwerse Tours were members of the at Protestant Dutch Reformed Church, Acquackanonk (Passaic), Essex Co., New Jersey, in 1738 as Cornelis Dreak and Mareytje Dreak, by confession of faith.6
  • Lillian Drake Avery, in Drake Genealogy in the Line of Samuel (p.18) places Gerardus Drake in the family of Cornelis Drake and Maria Tours. She gives no reason or authority, and no record of birth or baptism for Gerardus Drake has ever been found. It is more likely that she found records of Gerardus Drake, in Essex and Morris Counties, New Jersey, and then simply assumed that the mentioned Gerardus must belong to Cornelis Drake's family. A closer look at the records, however, demonstrates that this Gerardus had an adult son (Gerardus, Jr.) by 1750, implying that he would be too old to have been a son of Cornelis.7

On 29 September 1824, Cornelius Drake, being duly sworn in open court, stated, among other things, that he had bought a small house and lot of land in Morris County in 1807 and that he continued to live on said place until 1822, when he sold it and bought a small place in Roxbury township, expecting to pay the balance of the purchase price "by coleing and cutting wood off the place; but the sickness and death of a part of his family disables him from making the residue of the payments and compelled him to give up the place to the vendor and loose all of his first payment (two hundred and ten dollars) except ten dollars."

Should any of my grandsons previously mentioned, die before the age of 21, their bequest is to be divided equally among the survivors. Appoints as executors: son David H. Drake and friends Parshall Smith and Charles B. Durland. Witnesses: Ebenezer Foster, Simeon R. Vail, William M. Sutton, all of Chester, New York.11
  • Lewis Holbert was named in his grandfather David Grasset Drake's will on 22 January 1831.11
  • John Archibald Dains was named in his grandfather David Grasset Drake's will on 22 January 1831.11
  • David Coe Holbert was named in his grandfather David Grasset Drake's will on 22 January 1831.11
  • David D. Cooper was named in his grandfather David Grasset Drake's will on 22 January 1831.11
  • On 12 February 1832 David G. Drake, a resident of Goshen, Orange County, New York, aged 73 years, appeared before the Court of Common Pleas in Orange County, New York to petition for a pension based upon his service during the Revolutionary War. In his application he states that he was born in 1759 (does not specify date or month, does not name his parents). While as a resident of Goshen he enlisted in the winter of 1777 and served various times, eight months and twenty-four days in total, as a private in Capt. John Jackson's and David Swezy's Companies, Col. Benjamin Husted and Cooper's New York Regt. He was allowed a pension on 13 Feb 1833.1,12
  • He appeared on the census in 1840 at Goshen, Orange Co., New York, as David G. Drake, with a household of 1 male 10-15, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 80-90, 1 female under 5, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 20-30, 1 female 40-50.13
  • On 12 September 1840 Codicil to will of 22 Jan 1831. All advances made to said children since my will was written are to be accounted for and deducted from what each was bequeathed by my executors. Also, since one executor is deceased and another moved from the area, I now appoint my friends Ebenezer Foster and Oliver B. Houser as executors. Witnessed by Wm. L. Foster, Michael C. Denton.14
  • On 14 June 1850 Ebenezer Foster, one of the executors for the will of David G. Drake, petitions the Orange County Surrogate's Court, asking for the will to be proved. Probate scheduled for 5 Aug 1850, ordered to appear are: Sarah Rhodes, James Holbert and Susan his wife, Phebe Dains, David H. Drake and George W. Drake all of Chester in Orange County; Joseph Drake of Warwick, Orange Co; Frances Holbert, and Luther Meacham and Hannah his wife of Binghamton, Broome Co., New York; Clarissa Knapp of Centreville in St. Joseph's Co., Michigan; Abigail Egbert of Milford in Kosciusko Co., Michigan; Jonah Cooper and Emily his wife of Canal Louisville in Coshocton Co., Ohio; Calvin Rhodes and Mary Jane his wife of Middletown, Susquehanna Co., Pennsylvania; and John Smith and Frances his wife of Wantage, Sussex Co., New Jersey, heirs at law and next of kin of David G. Drake of Chester, Orange Co., New York.14
  • Will proved on 5 August 1850 The proving of David G. Drake's will is lengthy as each witness was cross examined by attorneys for his daughters Hannah and Susan. Each witnessed was questioned as to the sobriety of David G. Drake at the time he made both his will and codicil. Apparently David G. Drake had a reputation as a heavy drinker, often intoxicated for sustained periods of time. All witnessed testified that he was sober at the time the will and codicil were written. Ebenezer Foster testified that David G. Drake was married twice, and that his second wife was living at the time the will was written (22 Jan 1831). However, she is not mentioned in the will and no provisions are made for her, and according to her gravestone she died in 1829, at age 45.15

Family 1: Mary Smith b. 15 Apr 1768, d. 24 Jun 1824

Family 2: Hannah Knapp b. bt 1785 - 1786, d. 30 Mar 1829
