The story that was past down through the generations til now was there 4 brothers came from Ireland to America. Started a powder factory in North Carolina their names were,Michael, Elijah, David and John. They were full Irish, and Catholics but John changed the name to Roark and left the church for he couldnt agree with it. None of these names are of my origin but maybe related somehow I am Jesse Roarks Charles son , ggggrandaughter in Oklahoma. Hope more Roarks join in and share stories soon. Carol Roark Pelkey
