Descendants of Zachariah Drury - 1855
Zachariah Drury is also assumed to be a descendant
of Robert Drury (1634). It has been speculated that he is the oldest unidentified son of
Philip Drury in the 1790 Census. No proof has ever been found to support this except for
the fact that he was a witness to the Will of John Norman Newton in Kentucky. This
association may or may not be significant.
I have recently received information about a letter written in 1914 by Dr. Hugh Rodman
attributing Zachariah as a son of Ignatius Drury and Anastasia French. Hugh Rodman was a
descendant of Ignatius. If additional support can be found for this attribution, Zachariah
can finally be placed in the family with certainty.
