I gleaned much of the information I have from other researchers. Some I found to be erroneous. As to George being James Sr.'s father... well I have found no such tie. What I know about James Sr. is he fought as a Patriot and received a land warrant for 200 acres in what is now Pike County Ky. He moved with most of his children to Floyd Co. Ky about 1811. He filed for his war pension but died before getting it. I descend from His Son Stephen. Stephen stayed in the New River settlement in Giles County, He purchased the land from James. His son Joseph moved to Pike County in the mid 1830's he was married to Elizabeth White, they were married in Giles County Va.
It is through Joseph that my line comes from.
As to Sir Francis Drake connection I remember reading something about his brother? and a connection that way but not in my line.
There was a George and a Benjamin Rowe who could be related brothers to James show up on ealier censuses with James but disappear later.
