Our father Raymond W. Dake has passed away and we are trying to find out any information about our heritage on his side. He is originally from Long Island NY. His father was also Raymond Willis Dake Senior and his mothers name is Florence we are not sure her maiden name. We know my father's grandmother was of Cherokee heritage and his father is of Spain heritage. We believe the name might have been Drake and the r was dropped at some point. There has been some reference according to our mother of a relation to Sir Francis Drake. Any info would be very much appreciated.
