William Wayne Drake
Born: 16 December 1868 Died: 28 January 1936
The eldest son of Milton Drake and Siipiihkwa (Jane Drake), Wayne was born just a few years prior to the relocation to Indian Territory. Always known by his middle name, Wayne married Aletha “Birdie” Brandon in 1895. They had four children: Arizona (“Zona”), Moreland, Clarence, and Fred. A farmer by trade, Wayne and his family moved quite a bit, spending several years in Edna, Kansas, but also Parkman, Wyoming, and they ended up in Santa Monica, California just a few years before Wayne’s death.
