  1. Hi I would like all the information that you have on Abigail Roark. And Charles Roark. 4 of their daughters married into my family and I am trying to find all the information that I can.

  2. Hi, I am a descendant of Charles and this Abigail Roark's son Jesse who married Nelly Price, and had a son named John or Solomon Roark. Solomon had a son Ezekiel who was my GGG Grandfather. Ezekiel is buried in the cemetary in Wellston, Oklahoma where they moved around the landrun. Any info would be greatly appreciated especially on Abigail

  3. I am very interested in whatever information you are willing to share. I descend from Pleasant Eastridge, believed to be a brother of William Eastridge. Barney Eastridge, a son of Pleasant, identified Henry and Elizabeth Floyd Eastridge as the parents of William and Pleasant but and have run recent DNA testing may point to another direction for the parentage of William and Pleasant. Please contact me at Thank you.
