Hi Joyce, I wish I had seen this posting sooner. I could have probably had more information for you earlier in the year, before Bill's mom passed away. He's pretty much the only Rake left in this area so I'm relying on his memory. And all he can remember is the placename Berwick was familiar to him and/or possibly Warren. It wasn't real clear to him what area of PA his father was from as the family always referred to it as "the pawnee hills of Pennsylvania" (Percy's wife Emma was Native American - Pawnee Indian.) I have tried to locate such a place on various maps but to know avail. Then again I'm very new to the genealogy world. Bill knows he does have pictures of Percy and family somewhere in his mothers house. Again she just recently passed away and Bill is still in the process of clearing the house out. But his mother kept everything, and he did just recently find a death certificate on Emma. He's going to re-locate it and check for other placenames and dates, etc. If there is anything pertinent on it relating to Percy, I will get in touch again. Also if he finds anything else that might connect the two (Henry and Percy), I will let you know. Good Luck and please keep in touch.
