According to his marriage record to Hannah May, Washington O'Roark was the Son of Joseph and Lydia Young O'Roark. Since the marriage occurred in 1854, Leannah who married Michael Neff perhaps took his last name. Washington and Hannah were the parents of George Washington O'Roark who died in Staunton, Virginia in 1935 and Elizabeth who married Clinton Crist. There was another daughter named Lydia who married Joseph Ritter and removed to Indiana. Washington disappears from the records before the birth of his daughter Elizabeth in 1862, so he may have died at that time. Hannah May O'Roark lived until 1892. Hope this info helps.

Hi Bill,
Your information was helpful. My problem is, I can't find that Hannah May O'Roark was ever married before Washington O'Roark. Her marraige record states her parents as "May", so then who were her older children fathered by, if not Washington. If you run into any other info on this family, please email me at Adhough1@aol.com.
Thanks,
Amy
