They both died in Halifax County, NC where their wills are recorded. Their property was located on Great Fishing Creek in the southern part of the county. This Joseph, I infer, was a descendant of Ambrose Hadley of Isle of Wight Co., Va and Halifax, N. C. possibly through William Hadley, son of Ambrose II. According to Joseph's will, he had a brother Ambrose.
Lydia was the daughter of James Drake and his first wife, Sophia Valentine (believed to be dtr of James Valentine and sister of Jacob). Lydia is named in James Drake's will from Nash Co. NC. 1791. See section on Drakes.
