 NOTE: John Hodges DRAKE, father-in-law of John D. ARRINGTON, was a 
       half-brother to Albrittain DRAKE who lived briefly in Wilson
       County, Tenn before moving on to Kentucky, and a cousin of the
       Britton DRAKE who lived 1820 Wilson Co, Tennessee.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Albrittain and Ruth Collins DRAKE were parents of Sophia Valentine DRAKE
who married Wiley ALFORD.  The senior Drakes moved to Wilson County, Tenn.,
but moved on to KY leaving Sophia and Wiley in Wilson County.  The rest of
the family went to KY, with the exception of her eldest brother, JOHN, who
stayed in NC. A younger brother, JAMES PERRY DRAKE, then moved on from KY
to Indiana where he eventually settled in Indianapolis and was owner of the
Drake Hotel there.  He later served as Treasurer of the state....and during
the Civil War, he took his family back to TN, to live with the ALFORDs for
the duration of the war.  His wife, PRISCILLA, was a BUELL, and she, their
daughters, and her own immediate family were pro-North. JAMES and the one
son, JAMES, JR., were pro-South.

Britton DRAKE (who married Hearty BRIDGES) was a cousin of the above 
ALBRITTAIN DRAKE.  They lived in Wilson County, Tennessee.
