Re: Who is this John Polk?
There are POLKs and then there are PALKs.
Unfortunately, members of both families were in the same areas appoximately in the same time frames in Va, NC, SC, Ga, Al, MS, TN, KY, and MO, to name a few. The PALK name was misspelled many times in history.It was sometimes spelled by mistake by people that wrote it down as heard by them.
Jehu POLK is a Palk (PAULK) married Eliabeth Barrett.
Houston M. Palk
