Tracing Another Immigrant February 4, 2016

immigrant ship  My 10th great-grandfather Sir John Drake was born in England in 1585.  At age 45 he sailed for America on the “Mary and John” and landed at Nantasket just north of Boston.  He became a Freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.  Later he settled in the area just north of Hartford.  He died in 1659 and is buried in Palisado Cemetery In Windsor Connecticut.
