I am seeking any information on the following Roark family members that lived in East Feliciana and Caldwell Parishes in Louisiana as early as the 1830s:

Joseph Roark, b. about 1825, md. Jemima Brian

Elizabeth Jane Roark, b. between 1838 and 1840 (possibly in East Feliciana Parish, La.), md. Isaac R. Norred in Caldwell Parish in 1853

Rufus Roark, born about 1832 in Louisiana, md. Mary L. Brian (sister of Jemima Brian married to Joseph Roark above)

Columbus Roark, 1840 US Fed. Census of Catahoula Parish, La., age 20 to 30

Thomas Roark, 1840 US Fed. Census of East Feliciana Parish, La., age 40 to 50.

There may be some connection to the Roarks of Iowa.

Any information is appreciated. Thanks!
