William Polk, 1, mentions step-son, Allen Gray in his will. William Polk did not mention sons William Ft and Charles in his will. They objected to their father's second marriage and left home. William It moved to Carlisle, Pennsylvania where he married Margaret Taylor. After a short sojourn in Carlisle they moved to Mecklenburg, North Carolina. Charles became the "Indian Trader" building a home at the North Bend of the Potomac River. They evidently had asked for their inheritance and departed. 2/
