Aaron Drayton

Here are the 1880 and 1910 Census Records for Adams Run – which feature the name – Aaron Drayton. I’m in touch with an Aaron Drayton, who told me that the one featured in both is his great-grandfather. Both grandfather and his father were also named Aaron. You will notice that there is a Phillis Drayton, who is mother of the Aaron featured, but no father. We have yet to discover who he was, and why the name Drayton was chosen. Also who was Phillis? It is going to be difficult to find out. I have also attached an obituary notice of a Maybell Drayton, wife of the late Joseph Drayton.

  2. Sabrina,please get in touch again. Do you know of Ron and his sister, Tina Drayton? Their family still own some land in Adams Run which has been in their possession for about 100 years.
