If the 1920 census was correct here's the 1930 census for the same person.

Home in 1930:Home for the Aged, St Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota
Age: 81

Birthplace: Africa

Race: White

Still looking for 1880 and 1910 census records.

One piece of information that I missed to give is that his father was from Dublin and his mother from London and this appears in the census!
His residency in St Paul Ramsey at a senior age makes sense, since he had some first cousins living there.

Biff I appreciate your help!
I do not recognize his brother in law and the immigration year makes me think that it is not him.

Livio,

There is a tree on Ancestry posted by Ian Pace of Lincolnshire which shows John's parents as James Drake (1819-1905) and Jane Moore (1825-1908) with pics of both parents; also lists his siblings some with pictures. Let me know if you'd like me to post any details/pics. Also includes info on his sister Corinna Drake Dollero.

edited to add--I should have looked at your family website since you are familiar with Ian Pace's tree.

Biff

Biff, yes I have been in touch with Ian Pace. Corinna Drake is my maternal grandmother. Some of the pictures are taken from my tree and vice versa. I'm trying to find some of the missing information...
James Adolphus Drake, my great uncle, seems to be married to Allison, is this a name or a surname, and when did they marry?

Allison could be either a first name or surname.

No marriage year is listed on Ian's site.

Livio,
Try FamilySearch beta.familysearch.org/ Most, if not all, of Pennsylvania's genealogy docs are not accessible online; however, Family Search, for whatever reason, has managed to provide some resources from Philadelphia such as Return of Death, which has yielded several discoveries for me. There are also marriage indexes for Philadelphia from The Orphan's Court where I have also found records for many of my great aunts and uncles who emigrated from Sicily. To access the images of the records you will have to enter a username and password. If you don't have a username, password then follow the process to create one as there is no charge. You can either narrow your search by regions, countries, etc. or simply have the search include all areas available. If you are looking for info around Philadelphia restrict the search to USA, Canada, Mexico.

I hope this helps and that I have not been too confusing in my explanation.

Thanks Tom, I already searched the FamilySearch databases without success. The Philadelphia Marriage collection covers the 1885-1951 time frame while my John Drake's marriage occurred in 1873...
