  • Notes 

    • William Polk II had no Revolutionary War service as a soldier, being over age
      50 when the war began. Some DAR applications have named William II
      as having served n a supporting role in the Revolutionary War.
      He married before 1750. No records have been found naming William
      Polk's wives. There was a 90-100 year old female in the household of
      Nancy Shelby in 1830, in Anson Co., NC. It is possible that she was
      the widow of William. The last record found for William was in
      Cabarrus Co., NC in 1802.

      The Mecklenburg Signers... 'A William Polk may have married a Miss
      Spratt, sister of Susan Spratt, wife of Thomas Polk, William's
      brother.... Before 1745, when William was 17, he first married Miss
      Spratt. About 1750, when William was 22, he married second, Catherine
      Sterns, in North Carolina.'
