The book "Kith and Kin of the Dark-Darke Clan" says that a Joseph J. Dark Sr who married a "Winney" was a Tory Captain and was thought to be the son of Captain Samuel Dark bc. 1736, but was more likely the son of Samuel Dark bc. 1706. The Rev. Edgar W. Davis of SC (deceased by 1974, when book published) spent many years doing research on the Dark family, his wife being a descendent of Joseph. Mr Davis' work was never published and remained in the hands of his immediate family.
