I am looking for my grandfather, REX ROARK.( Rex might have been a middle or a nic name). I figured he was born abt. 1905, supposily in NC, but I havent been able to find anything on him there. I have heard through the family grape vine that Rex died in GA. sometime before 1962, as my grandmother had recieved a phone call informing her of this before she passed away. But no one seems to remember who called.Rex disappered from VA abt. 1925 or so.. My grandma, Anna Lou Barber Roark remained in VA for years trying to raise the children with the help of her sister, Rose Barber and her brothers, Douglas Barber and Con Barber, who all lived in Rural Retreat, Va. Then she and her sister,moved to first KY, and then to Middletown,OHio, in abt. 1945. This was after All 3 of Anna and Rex's were grown. Their children: 1. Lawrence Edward Roark..born 1922 in Atkins,VA. 2. James Willis Roark..born abt. 1920 in VA 3. Milldred Roark born abt. 1918 in VA Lawrence(my dad) and Uncle Willis have both passed away, and knew nothing of their father. I have spoken to Aunt Milldred, who now lives in Cali, and she also doesnt remember Rex, except for seeing him when she was about 5-6 years old...It is my guessthat Rex and Anna couldnt make the marriage work, and after leaving, Rex formed a new family.....On along shot that Rex might still be alive, he would be abt. 93 now, and I would love to find anyone connected to these families.
