ok I got it Patrick was his brother.  Somehow it does not surprise me the way my grandmother used to describe it as she fell off numerous times being wild and crazy.

Nevins-226,
A new comment by Adams-32497 has been added after your comment on WikiTree G2G:
You are more than welcome! 
Since you mentioned wild and crazy motorcycle rides, I though of one more thing. It is not proven and it is very very sad, so I was not going to mention it,  but one chart says William had an older son Patrick. 
From Census records you can see Patrick Drew lived to be about 30 and had a small family of his own. Tragically this same fellow appears from his Rose Hill Cemetery FAG memorial to have died in a motorcycle collision with a milk wagon. He is what I though of when I read your note saying "wild and crazy." Not 100%  sure if Patrick L. Drew really is part of this family, but the motorcycle connection makes one wonder, as does him being there in Rose Hill. His widow, Josephine Brown Land, lived to 1973, and you can probably guess where she is buried....
The discussion is following:
I found some stuff which seems to fit.....
Here's a link for who is resting in the Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon: 
Looks like your William Samuel Drew is there with dates 1893-1924. (I added that to his profile)
I was looking for a Jas. or James to be his dad and think there is one in the cemetery, but this James lives to 1905 in contradiction to one of your expectations and his FAG dates have a mistranscription on the birth year. The stone says b. 1838 if you blow up the image of it, but it was transcribed incorrectly as 1833.
Using the corrected  birth year of 1838, I found a 1900 US census group that appears be showing (William) Samuel Drew as a boy of seven years with father James born in 1838, and other family members including a sister Jesse of ten years. James' parents are listed as from Georgia. Catherine and her parents are from N. Carolina. Tucorra is a very unique name for a sibling! Hope some of the detail eventually leads you to get past James as a roadblock.  Actual image here:
