In Reply to: Estella Iams [Imes] b. 1867 in Oregon m. Major A. Draper by Roberta Iiames of 742

From the Portrait & Biographical Album Oakland Co., MI by Durante, at the Burton Historical Collection in the Main Lib. of the Detroit Library, Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI.

Oliver D. Draper was in his second year when he came to Mich. with his parents. He saw more Indians than whites in his early years and frequented their camps. He began to work for himself at the age of 23 and at 24 settled on a farm that he now occupies, upon land given him by his father. (Barrette Draper s/o Oliver Draper) Forty acres of it was cleared and fenced but there was no house. Here he built a small frame house and established a home for him and his new bride. Her maiden name was Jane Smith, b. March 14, 1841, in Scholar Co., NY. She had five children.

Major m. Martha Perry and farms in this county.

Warren m. Alice Green

Tillee m. Lydia Mitchell

Burt & Orrin are still at home.

Mr. & Mrs. Draper are Baptist in religious faith. Mr. Draper is a Republican with strong Prohibition proclivities. He is a patron of Industry.
