Boleyn Clark the Great-grandfather of Col. Albert H. Clark, lived in the
Pendleton District, South Carolina. He had sons, Joseph, DAVID, Jonathan and
Micajah. His wife was Winnifred Buford, and related to Gen?l Abe Buford and
Tom Buford near Lexington, Ky. ? This same BOLEYN CLARK had some 2 or 3
daughters, one married a Davis, and two of them perhaps married Thompsons.
The original Boyeyn Clark also as stated had a son DAVID CLARK, he settled
near Dresden, TN. Also had a son named Micajah Clark, he settled near
Lexington KY. Joseph Clark, a son, left Greenville Dist. SC about 1803 and
came to KY. He married an Indian Maiden named Ann GOLDEN, the daughter of
Chief Golden of the Cherokee tribe." [The writer obviously shared
correspondents or had access to McNaught?s work / or she his for the wording
closely matches her published genealogy.]

anne golden daughter of cheif golden a minor cheif of double head, married joseph clark.

Birth: 1770, Bedford Co., VA
Death; 1841, Christian Co., KY
Will proved: 8 Mar 1842
Father said to be: Bolen CLARK
Mother said to be: Winifred BUFORD
I have some concern that these are not the correct parents for Joseph because Winifred would have been 46 years old when he was born. Had Bolen remarried a second, younger wife? Or is Joseph not Bolen's son, at all?

Marriage: 1790, Pendleton Co., SC
Transhumance said to be: 1803, to Christian Co., KY (same year as alleged brother Jonathan)

Depending on the source, Bolling?s birth year is given anywhere from "circa
1717" to circa "1723" with specific birth dates of 15 FEB 1720 and 4 DEC
1723 thrown in for good measure. Needless to say, none are cited from
primary sources. "1719" is recorded by Margery B. (Rogers) Clark in a Bible
entry dated circa 1838, the date of her marriage to T. G. Clark. [I refer
you to a previous message forwarded from Kay Sugg Best.] Bowling is the 6th
child named in "Capt." Christopher Clark?s Louisa Co. VA will (dated 14 AUG
1741): "I give my loving son Bowling Clark, four hundred acres of land in
Hanover County lying on the northwest side joining on the land of Mr. Thomas
Carr and on ye County ---, two young negroes named Nance and Robin and one
horse named Spret, one gun, one feather bed and furniture, two cows and
calves, my trooping arms and my great Bible, and all my law books." [p. 127
McNaught] (Trooping arms seems a strange gift for a son who was a devout
Quaker; is there a clue here? At the time he wrote the will, Christopher was
a vestryman in the Anglican Church. But a couple years later, Christopher
and his son, Bowling, were named overseers of the Sugarloaf Monthly

Christopher Clark, once in Louisa, now in Georgia, an account of
his family, June, 1791: Milly Tyrell his wife; Micajah, oldest son
married; Christopher age 30; David aged 28; Morning, aged 26 - has five
daughters; Judith, married aged 24 - one child; Rachel about 22, has
3 boys -- a widow now; Agathy about 20; Molly about 18 married; Samuel,
16; Joshua, 14; Milley, 12; Chiles Tyrell died aged 2 months; Suckie, 9;
Lucy, 5.
this christopher was the son of micajah clark brother of bolling clark. whi joined his uncle bolling and cousins in sc.and elbert georgia.

Notes for Penelope Bolling:
According to "The History of Elbert County Georgia", " Penelope Bolling was a direct descendant of the Indian Princess, Pocahontas, through Colonel Robert Bolling, who married Jean Rolfe, granddaughter of the Princess. The name "Bolling" appears in latter generations which gives credit to the fact." p. 392

i. Edward Clark235, born 1710; died Unknown.
ii. Agnes Clark235, born 1712; died Unknown.

SHELTON, STEPHEN, was born about 1777, in North Carolina, married there to Lydia Heath, and at once moved to Ohio, near the mouth of Sciota river, where two children were born, and the family moved across the Ohio river into Cabell county, West Virginia, where seven children were born.

alice clark was daughter of john clark and susam barnes. robert teeaters was the son of william m jake teater and susan ann may. william m jake teater was son of absalom flechter teater and emmaline ray, abslaom teater was son of parris teater and rebecca totton, parris teater son of george teater and sarah pearis.. although some family disagreements over penelope s father surfaced she was the daughter of g granson of pochahontas. christopher was meticules in registering his family linage in amherst virg and did the same thing in elbert georgeia and , he knew who his granma was and regsitered her as penelope bolling daughter of john bolling as recorded in the history of elbert georgia begining 1790. this olnly one part of the teaters of kentucky that carry the bloodline of princess pochahontus. this also only part of the cherokee teaters thru ann golden daughter of cherokee cheif golden.

the davis clans are very thouroughly mixed with the teaters of kentucky.ID: I11339 Name: Cleopatra POWHATAN Sex: F Note:
There is positive and indisputable proof (Strong Words for Genealogy) that Pocahontas had a sister named Cleopatra (?Matachanna). This proofwas located in the old library of the Maryland Historical Society, an item of three lines covering eleven years. During the period covered by
the fragment, matters became so bad between the Whites and the Indians that Opechancanough , Chief of the Powhatans, was induced to agree upon a line being established which neither White nor Indian, excepting truce bearers, should cross under penalty of being shot on sight. To insure
strict obedience to the compact, a law was passed at Jamestown imposing a heavy penalty on any people crossing the line without a special permit from the Commissioners Council and the General Court. This accounts for the item alluded to, which is given verbatim. It reads: "Note:
Dec. 17th, 1641 -- Thomas Rolfe petitions the governor to let him see Opechankeno to whom he is allied, and Cleopatra, his mother's sister."
The record of the General Court was evidently intended to be a verbatim copy though they differ in phraseology and spelling:Note: "Dec. 17th, 1641 -- Thomas Rolph petitions Gov. to let him go see
Opechanko, to whom he is allied, and Cleopatre, his mother's sister."
Thomas Rolfe was the son of John Rolfe and Pocahontas.

He made a large fortune by having choice river-bottom lands and trading with the Indians. Nathaniel and Elizabeth had 4 children: Robert Davis, ancestor of President Jefferson Davis who never publicly acknowledged his Indian heritage; Martha Davis who m. Abraham Venable; Abadiah (also called Abigail) Davis who m. William Floyd; Mary Davis

!This genealogy is found in "Family History", Kegley's Virginia Frontier" by F.B. Kegley, and "Floyd Biographical Genealogies" 1912 by N.J. Floyd. the Floyd book is found in the library of Missouri State Historical Society at Columbia, Missouri. Excerpts from it were sent in 1964 to
Broaddus and Pauline Burks from Clyde Campbell of San Antonio, Texas. He was a descendant of Samuel and Mary Davis Burks. The often quoted book, "The Cabells and Their Kin", has a few lines noting kinship of the Burks, Cabells, Venables, Floyds, and a branch of the Davises due to their Indian blood.

There are various spellings of this, Roland, Rowland, Rollin, etc, which is a prominent Huguenot family name. The name Burkes was spelled as Birks, Burks, Burke, Burk, etc. The name is listed in the 1790 census of Burke Co., NC, as Rollin Burkes. There were 4 males under 16 yrs of age,
4 males over 16, and 4 females, which probably included the mother, listed in the household.
One story has it that five of the older sons were killed in an Indian Massacre near the North Carolina-Tennessee Border, but I have been unable to verify that these were the children of Roland. The Burks did not live within the present confines of Burke County which is situated on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge and on the Piedmont plateau. They lived west of the Blue Ridge, in the area of present day Mitchell County, NC which was all in "Old Burke County."
In the Treaty of Paris (1763) the British Crown declared that any land beyond the crest of the Blue Ridge was "beyond the bounds of government" and consequently, Indian Territory. This agreement was partially abrogated by the Treaty of Long Island (in the Holston River). which was signed June 20, 1777 (twenty days after Burke County was created), in which the Cherokee ceded to the State of North Carolina all lands along the Nolichucky (Toe), Watauga, Upper Holston, and New
Rivers. At the close of the Revolution the area that later became Buncombe County (Ashville) was also ceded to the state by the Cherokee, and the northern half of this territory became a part of Old Burke.
