Hi Shirley!

William's parents are Joseph Drain and Sarah Hodson. They md 1797 in Mercer Co KY. Joseph was born in the 1760s in Prince George's Co MD according to his death record. He died 1854 in Marion Co KY. No clues to when Sarah died but it apprears to be 1840-50 - probabl in Marion Co KY. I am working with Larry Drane who has a website on the Drane's. I'll be sending him a small gedcom of our line very soon. The original spelling does appear to be Drane and why our line went by Drain is anyone's guess. But, the Drane's came out of Prince George's Co MD.

I'll check the post on the Dew site right now.

I descend from Susan Jane Drain who md Albert Dew in IL - thru their dau, Frances Jane Dew, who md George Huston. Frances and George Huston are my great-grandparents. I never knew George but have a couple of photo's of me with Frances when I was young.

Oh, I have name name of Albert's first wife - let me look that up for you. Will post more later.
