I have spent a good portion of today trying to locate some historical background information on the Drakes Creek Area. This area is the central element of a Genealogical Research Association that I am planning to form. The Drakes Creek is the central landmark for Eastern Allen County. I have developed a map and defined the bounds of this area but have not been able to find any history relating to its discovery or its naming. I am aware of the facts that it was a favorite hunting area for the 'Longhunters' and was an early area to be settled. The Kirby map on this site is evidence of this.
I would be very grateful to anyone that could point me to information that I could look into on this subject. Thanks everyone for a very helpful site and a great group of fellow researchers.
