I do not have my materials accessible at this time; so what I say
here is purely conjecture. I am thinking that Martin and my 3rd
great-grandmother Charity Roark Weatherly are possibly aunt and
nephew. I do know that a Roark was named as ?executor? for James
Andrew Weatherly at his death in 1851/2 in Indiana. I questioned the
executor because I am not certain of the term used --- the function
he filled would have been analogous to what we understand as an executor.
What more can you add to clarify Martin's lineage?
