I am researching here at Clareville. Carterton, would love to make contact with any descendants of the Walter Clunie Drake family please.. there is are I believe two graves here at Clareville Cemetery for DRAKE, one a wee bairn... no marker on it, but I know where it is, 3 days old, John Owen Drake as above.. I notice on records that Walter Clunie Drake was Carterton Post Master and Registrar.. thank you.

CHARLES DRAKE died 1885, in his 50s... wonder if related to Walter Clunie Drake, he too is buried here at Clareville.. I believe another family of Drake may have lived in the area in 1890s.. have seen the names on the old plans...
