  • Note: Note: Tmothy O'Roark was one of four O'Roark brothers broug ht to America by an Uncle settling in the area of Pennsylva nia then Virginia. The other three brothers are unclear a t this time... They were of Catholic and Presbyterian relig ious beliefs and were possibly brought to America because o f their conversion by an evangelist type person John Wesley . John was known for his travels, especially, to America. I t is possible the other brothers were William, James and Ni cholas. This account of the Roark boys as orphans, being "k idnapped" by a maternal uncle, was related to a family of R oarks in Tennessee(?) in 1931 by a Catholic Priest who ha d just come from Ireland. This account by the Priest fits p erfectly with all history I have been able to uncover. Th e Priest was positive about the William, James and Nicholas , but was unsure about the fourth one. This Timothy, mentio ned above, is the s/o Thaddeus O'Rourke.
