|Birth: ||Dec. 25, 1776|
North Carolina, USA
Parents of Oliver were:
Samuel Darke who was born Pennsylvania and Aggie Copeland who was born in North Carolina.
Oliver Dark & Amey Hayes were both born in NC, and as the family seems to leave NC for KY, there is no record of Oliver mentioned. Whether the family moved into TN and then KY is not known, but two of Oliver's sons accompanied their Uncle Sam'l to IL. Sam'l was living in TN prior to the time he left for IL.
It is possible that the two boys joined their uncle when he stopped in KY on his way to IL. Most of Oliver's family was in KY according to the 1850 Census, in which Amy was living in the household of Micajah.
The great grandfather of Oliver Dark was born in Rising Camden, England, John Darke 1667-1730, immigrated to the US in 1684. He died in Makefield, Bucks, Pennsylvania 27 April 1730. He was married to Jane Rushe 8 May 1698 in Byberry, Pennsylvania. They had abt. 11 Children (pending verification of records for surviving children).
Family members will be added to Find a Grave. Burial places are being researched. I have found English family members as early as 1350. The earliest from Ashe, Dorset, England.
