Descendants of Robert Bruce Polk
Generation No. 1

      Robert Bruce Polk is said to be the progenator of the clan of Polks who migrated to Mississippi.
     One researcher shows that his son is Thomas Polk, however,other's disagree.

                    We will begin our lineage with Thomas:


2.  Thomas2 Polk, born June 11, 1737 in Chester Co Pennsylvania & died 1800 in Darlington District South Carolina


Generation No. 2

 2.  Thomas2 Polk  was born June 11, 1737 in Chester Co Pennsylvania, and died in 1800 Darlington District, South Carolina.

              He married 1) Mary Wilson
              He married 2) Lucy Miles Moore

  Children of Thomas Polk and Mary Wilson are:

+ 3 i. Isaac3 Polk, born April 08, 1780 in Darlington South Carolina & died October 21, 1859  in Lawrence Co Mississippi
 4 ii. Daniel Polk
+5 iii. Jonathan Polk, born about 1785 in Darlington District SouthCarolina and died in 1864, Marion Co Mississippi
 6 iv. Luke Polk
 7 v.  Thomas Polk, Jr.

Some genealogies show Thomas and Mary as parents of Edith Ann Polk who married John Berry, but nothing is proven.

 

Generation No. 3

3.   Isaac3 Polk (Thomas2) was born April 08, 1780 in Darlington District South Carolina, and died October 2, or  21, 1859 in Lawrence Co

      Mississippi, burial in Prentiss Cemetery, Jefferson Davis Co Mississippi.

                He married Sarah E. White.  She is buried beside her husband in Prentiss Cemetery, Jefferson Davis Co Mississippi
 

   Isaac was in  his thirties with a  young family when he was "mustered into service December 20, 1814, marched to a place about
   five miles below New Orleans, & there engaged in the Battle of New Orleans."   After the battle, Isaac was transfered to Captain

   Esom until he was honorably discharged March 1815.

  Isaac In Church     "Ebenezer Baptist Church Minutes, Amite County, Mississippi (1807-1907)"

  1813 -  The Ebenezer  Baptist Church,  Amite Co Mississippi, was organized in 1807, and it was  here that we find for the first
              time a  record of Isaac's church affiliation.  "In 1813, April 24, the church met in conference and recieved by Experience,

              Isaac Polk.   On July 03, 1813, Sarah Polk was received by Experience."  Isaac and Sarah were both dismissed by letter

              on May 03, 1817.

  1839 -  The original minutes of the Bethany Baptist Church, organized in 1819 in Jefferson Davis County, records that "Satur-
             day before the 3rd Sunday in April 1839 ...  Isaac Polk and his wife Sarah came by letter which certified that Isaac was 

             a deacon.   Here he was a substitute delegate to an Associational meeting in 1840, and at times "assistant deacon".  All 

             early church records  give a glimpse of the very conservative view of the Bible teachings.   As church discipline was strictly

             observed, the church minutes have  numerous accounts of members being brought before the church for conduct such as

             betting, drinking alcoholic beverages,  bad language, absence  from church without sufficient cause and  many other, per-

             haps more serious  matters.   One member could charge another member (before the church) and this was done quite fre- 

             quently.

            On one occasion  Isaac  preferred charges against Brother  ____  for calling on a brother to sing a "carnal" song in public 
            and acting to dishonor the cause of Christ.    Another occasion, Isaac  asked for  an apology  from Mr. ____  for  falsely

            accusing his son Joseph, of misconduct.

            Thus, Isaac,  his  children and  grandchildren  played an active  part in the  life of  Bethany church.  In 1846, at age 66 
            Isaac  resigned as  deacon but continued  attending until  his death in 1859.  He had the  pleasure of  worshipping in the

            same church with his children, all  being members at some time with as many as five at the same time.

            No record of  Isaac's church affiliation has been  found from 1817 to 1839;  but since he came to Bethany already a dea-
            con, one would assume they were active in some church.

            By 1820 the Federal census places Isaac in Lawrence County, Mississippi, but land records also show him living in Cov- 
            ington County for a while.  There were many land records showing transactions between Polks of the early years.  Several

            older ones are believed to be his brothers.

            From the  years of the  1830's  Polks have owned land and  lived near Whitesand Creek from the town of Prentiss  north- 
            ward as much as five miles.  Isaac's will stipulates one acre be set aside  for family burial.  This one acre is included in the

            Polk section of the Prentiss Cemetery.   The Ike Polk family added to this acre as needed.
