I am trying to find out information on Samuel's father, William Dake, my Great, Great, Great Grandfather. All I know is Samuel's information states William, his father was born in New York. I am trying to see from where my line goes back to, England or Ireland I suspect with possible Deake instead of Dake at that time. Also want to know if the line is in relationship to Crawley P. Dake. It seems all of my Great Grandfathers ended up in the same Michigan town as the Great Marshall Dake. Any suggestions or help is appreciated.

I know that we have communicated before. Do you know where in New York your grandfather William came from?

I was re-reading your old post and it reminded me about another Deake/Dake family that I am researching. I have been trying to find the family of Julius William C. Deake. I know that is father was William R. Deake who is buried at the Whitesville Rural Cemetery, Independence, Allegany County, NY, with his wife. I also know that Julius Deake's uncle was a Cyrus Towner Deake who went through school at the Nunda Literary Institute in 1841 (Nunda, New York) and was from Mount Morris, New York. At the same time Cyrus Deake was in school there was also a S. Deake and a C.J. Deake enrolled. I also found reference to a Samuel Deake in the Nunda/Mount Morris area as being a school teacher. My family is from this area but as yet I haven't connected any of these people. A William Deake/Dake was also the first post master in this area as well. Go to my web site at www.dakehome.com and look at the home page of people that I am researching. It gives more details on both of these people.
