Roarks in Texas Militia

Surnames: Roark, Ellison, Robison
I do not believe that I am related to this family in any way but I saw your post and wanted to give you this information because it lists members of this family. While this material doesn't specifically answer your question, it may provide some interesting insight into your ancestors. I visited the Texas State Archives and transcribed a muster roll for Capt. Robison's Company in which some of your family are listed. My ancestor was also in this company (I.B. Ellison)

Muster Roll of Robert C. Robison’s Company of Infantry in Reserve, Beat #7, 19th Brigade/Limestone County Texas Militia
Transcribed by William Bozic on June 20, 2006. All names are spelled exactly as written and are in the same order/number as the original. Researchers should consider non-standard & phonetic spellings (ex. Surnames #4 “Furguson” is probably Ferguson and #30 “Morcan” is probably Morgan )
