a. Note:   NOTES BY BILL POLK, KANSAS CITY, MO.: I have been unable to find, in many years of research, even one documentto tie William Polk of Pennsylvania and North Carolina, to the Polks ofMaryland. This does not mean that William Polk of Pennsylvania was notthe son of William Polk of Maryland and the grandson of Robert Polk, theimmigrant; That may well by the case. William and his brother Charles left home after his father married forthe second time. About 1723, William sold his land in Maryland andtraveling to Pennsylvania, settled probably in the area near the northbend of the Potomac. Likely, William moved into Pennsylvania with hisbrother Charles. Later, in the 1730's, William and his family settled inthe vicinity of what is now Carlisle, Pennsylvania, a region then a partof the frontier. settlers did not flow in the Cumberland Valley untilthe 1730's, so it is unlikely William and his family were there beforethen. William had slready married Margaret Taylor before the move tothe Cumberland Valley and began raising his family of seven boys andthree girls. The marriage must have taken place not too long afterWilliam arrived in Pennsylvania as the first child, William, was bornabout 1725. The other came regularly until December 1747, when theyoungest, Exekiel, destined to have a large family of his own and becomethe grandfather of a President of the United States, was born. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
