  • Notes 
    • Dorothy O'Roark, on their home place which was a nice 2 story brick home. largest at the time .
      It was reported by the grandchildren when I visited them in the summer of 2004 that their grandfather Martin Van Jr. was a lady's man, he would take the fruit produced and go in to Princeton and sell the goods, so he was on the road a lot. In the Orchard they grew apples, pears, peaches, plums, cherries, grapes and made prunes and such. She was a very hard worker, she was perhaps a little coarse, she also chewed tobacco. They also told us that the O'Roark family came from Christian Co, Kentucky. Dorothy Charlotte O'Roarks' father and his brother were killed on Look Out Mt., Chancery, Tenn. Charlotte's father was a confederate buried at Manitte Cemetary, in Georgia which is right across the border, and the brother was a Yankee and buried on top of Look Out Mt National Cemetary, in Tenn.
