Does anyone have a current e-mail address for GENE ROOK, or PAM PEARSON?

I ask because according to the Colonial & Revolutionary Lineages of
America, they assume that Shadrack Ruark is one of the 6 missing children
mentioned in John Ruark's, m. Mary Driscoll , will. But according to clues
provided to Gene, by Pam Pearson, that is incorrect. Shadrack is the only son and
heir of James Ruark and Elizabeth Lingoe. James is the brother of John.

According to the Colonial & Revolutionary of America, they show James,
brother of John, son of James Ruark and Elizabeth Longo, as born abt 1744,
aged 76 years, September 26, 1820 as serving as a private in Capt John Smith
Co. 3rd Regiment, Md.line. He married July 17, 1784, Susanna Tucker, who
made application for his pension. Is this the same person Pam is referring too?

Don't be shy, everyone feel free to jump in and clear this mess up.

Additionally, I have an old email from jphelps, that says John Rook/Ruark b
1703 was the son of James Ruark bc 1675 Ireland d 1719 Worcester Co. Md.
married Elizabeth Davis Longo b c1680 daughter of James Davis Longo d c1743
Worcester Co. Md. This couple had 5 children, John 1703, James 1703,
William c1707, Elliot c1710, Marjory 1715 married 1/6/1732 Md. to Thomas Bowling.
This is 3 more children than shown in the C&R L of A, which only shows
John and James.

Anyone with any information on Shadrack Ruark that would like to share with
me is greatly appreciated.
