      Note: Just doing some research as I too thought Elizabeth Piles was married to Thomas Drane. But it's not possible. Elizabeth's father Leonard wrote his will 19 Mar 1773 and he named his dau Elizabeth Drane, she was clearly alive then. But.... Thomas Drane died before Oct 1771 naming his wife Susannah as his Administratrix. So Elizabeth Piles d/o Leonard was clearly married to another Drane. Was it Thomas' brother James as everyone seems to think?
