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.
Another descendant of Constantine and Elizabeth Constantine & Elizabeth's son, Constantine was the father of DeEtte O'Roke (O'Rorke, O'Rourke. DeEtte married Abraham Koch.Abraham and DeEtte made the Cherokee Strip Land Run on September 16, 1893, in Oklahoma Territory. Their son was Franklin Koch,who married Gertrude Grace Ogden and their son was Glenn Allen Koch, my grandfather. My mother's name was Betty Jean Koch Newton. I am her daughter. Please feel free to share this information if it is helpful, and please share anything you can with me. Thank you!
RE: John E Johnson 151922063 Very interesting 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. Regards, Mike
