Drake Family St. Landry Parish
Hey, guys. I was browsing through the sacremental records of Southwest Louisiana looking for relatives when I encountered this listing. It might interest someone...
DRAKE,John-mul libre of S.Carolina, 4yrs in this parish(Aaron-of Elisabeth County, Virginia & Charity Chevis,also of Virginia, all "mul.libres"(free mulattos) & 4yrs of this parish)
It looks like they arrived in Louisiana during the Spanish Period. I remember seeing the Drake name on Paul Heineggs site.
