Heirs of William Roark Sell (W)Va Land
A deed I found at the West Virginia Archives dated 7 October 1839, where Michael, John and William Roark, heirs of William Roark, Revolutionary War veteran, sold property to David Evans of Muhlenburg Co., Kentucky. John Roark & William Roark were both residents of Muhlenburg County at the time; Michael Roark was living in Gallatin County, Illinois. Was David Evans related to Michael Roark's wife, Nancy (Evans) Roark, who was married to Michael in Muhlenburg Co.?
