I have been researching the O'Roke line since I was a teenager. |
Constantine O'Rorke and Elisabeth Kast are my 3rd great-grandparents. They had four daughters that have living descendants today: Julia O'Roke Carr, Eliza O'Roke Ferrin/Ferron, Nancy O'Roke Gallarno and Matilda O'Roke Harvey. Their sons with living descendants are: James O'Roke, Constantine O'Roke and Henry O'Roke [my 2nd great-grandfather].
Surnames of Con & Betsey O'Rorke's granddaughters are: Smith, Hiland, Root, Burr, Randall, Donnelly, Anderson, Countryman, Lindsey, Koch, Turner, Russell, Anderson / Meagher, Balcom / Wallenstein, Clark / Singleton and Hummel.

My grandfather William A. Storrs (1891-1974 )was Johns nephew. John was known as uncle Jack to the family. Jack and Nellies marriage according to Grandpa was not very good at times and when she died she was buried in St. James/ St. Mary's cemetery being she was Catholic and he was not. When Jack died my grandpa was the executor of his estate and buried him in Cedar Bluff with his parents and one of his sisters
Jacks family included:
Siblings Mary J. Johnson Storrs (1867-1951) my gr grandmother
Joseph D. (1869-1958)
William C. (1875-1965)
Fanny ( ca1873-1879 or 1881) depending on the infosource
Mother is Amanda ( ca1840-1875)
Father is Joseph E. (1831-1883)
Stepmom is Emeline Olin Pryor Johnson (1843-1928)
Stepsister is Myrtle A. Comstock( 1877-1962)
We have a upright wood framed upholstered Victorian chair that belonged to Nellie that my grandparents ended up with and had refurbished.
I am curious to see who Nellies siblings were and to find more info on this side of the family.

Sorry, the name Emeline came out as eyeliner on the last post.
I hate auto-correct. Regards,Mike

Are you related to John E Johnson (1848-1947) who is buried in Cedar Bluff Cemetery in Rockford-IL. John is a brother to my great grandmother Mary Jeanette(Jennie) Johnson Storrs(1867-1951). Eyeliner is actually Johns stepmother and Myrtle is his half sister
I have more info to share about this family if you are interested.

No problem with transferring memorials. If you want another just ask.

No, I am not related.. (that I know of) I am documenting cemeteries in my area, which includes linking and sending along info when I come across it.
|Bill Stephens||RE: Henry Wilson Sowers|

|Robert DeLong||RE: Vira Ann Bouton|
Vira Ann Bouton is my wife Ester M Bouton great grandmother thanks for the great work you are doing
|Kristine Hoffman||Also related to O'roke|
Constantine and Elizabeth are also my 3rd great-grandparents. Their daughter, DeEtte married Abraham Koch, and made the run for land in the "Cherokee Strip" in Oklahoma Territory. My grandfather, Glenn Koch, was their grandson, son of Franklin Koch and Gertrude Ogden. My mother was Betty Jean Koch, who married Keith E. Newton. My name is Kristine Kay Newton Hoffman. My brothers are Keith E. Newton, Jr. and Lyle A. Newton. So glad to have made this connection, as I did not know Elizabeth's last name!
