Message below refers to the Vanover Family, who give an explaination of the last name Abby Easterd.

Could Abigail Roark have come from the same Indian family named:

Cornelius IV mar. Abigail Mattox (2nd W). His first wife is unknown, but it was with his first wife he had a son Cornelius V, who mar. Abby Easterd. Abigail was born 1760-1770 and was full blooded Cherokee Indian, Eastern Band. The name Easterd was the anglicized rendition of the Cherokee family named E SUT TE. She apparently died between 1840-1850
