Bill Polk
Benjamin Franklin Polk 1900-1976
James Franklin Polk 1873-1937
Benjamin Polk (Jr.) March 1831- after 1 June 1900
Benjamin Polk (Sr.) c1799, York Co., SC., POSSIBLY - 1876-1880 Johnson Co., TX.
Taylor Polk, 1770-1780, NC., probably, possibly in Mecklenburg Co., but also possibly in TN., - c1839, Hot Spring Co., (Later Montgomery Co.), AR.

Taylor MAY be a son of John Polk and wife Eleanor of York Co., SC., both who d. there in 1803, but this is not proven.  John Polk and wife Eleanor of York Co., SC., MAY be the John Polk and wife Eleanor Shelby who are given in Polk genealogies and writings as being (he) son of William Polk/Margaret Taylor.  But my DNA tests indicate that I am not closely related to William Polk/Margaret Taylor of Mecklenburg Co., NC., so either Taylor Polk is not the son of John Polk/Eleanor Shelby, or John Polk and wife Eleanor of York Co., SC., are the parents of my Taylor Polk, but this John Polk is not the son of William Polk/Margaret Taylor.

Post by: James Polk Farber Sr. on November 12, 2009, 04:48:20 PM
David Polk "Sr. - of Baltimore MD" b ca 1772 Ireland, m 1797 Margaret Cooper
Rev. David Polk b 1809 Baltimore MD, m Mary Charlotte Warner
Sgt. David R. Polk b 1844 Jefferson Co., PA m Ella Whisner
Mabel Charlotte Polk b 31 July 1870, Helen Furnace, PA m Col Charles Farber
Dr. William Polk Farber b 6 December 1892, Springfield MA m Maude Mock
James Polk Farber b 30 August 1932 St. Petersburg, FL m Ocile DeVore

David Polk "Sr. - of Baltimore MD" was born in Ireland.  Per DNA this line is NOT related to the Somerset Polks but more to the PA-NC-TN Polks.  The actual link between David Polk "Sr." and any specific ancestor from Ireland is, however, as yet unproven.
