Roark is an old Southport, N.C., name. Dad's parents in Wilmington, in the depression, rented the future writer Robert Ruark's (spelling?) parents home. Dad went to UNC-CH with Robert. Then in WWII working on designing ship's radar for Bell Labs, dad new Robert when Ruark worked on the Tribune.

Hi Barbara,
GeneJ from the Most Wanted ... group contacted me about the information at the St. Louis Genealogical Society's web site at Please browse the databases but if you can not find anything then try as another possible avenue. You could also join our GroupWise group. Good luck in your research.

Well, does not sound like we have a connection with either Tallman or Lanier.

Thanks for the replies, and good luck with your research.

Thanks for checking out my Early St. Louis site. It is frustrating that some lines are so hard to trace while others seem so easy.

I see you have a Tallman line - any of them from New York. Have some married into the Peters family.

Also on Lanier ... know a Patrica "Pat" Lanier who would have born around 1942 and lived in St. Louis?

Although he died unmarried, you might try finding out more about Dr. Claudio Mercier.

Annals of St. Louis in its Early Days Under the French & Spanish Dominations by Billon, Frederic L., St. Louis, 1886.

Dr. Claudio Mercier came up to St. Louis from New Orleans early in 1786. His native place was Lavisi, Dauphiny, France, where he was born in the year 1726. He had resided for a time in New Orleans, where he had acquired some property, and left a will there when he came up to St. Louis, which he had executed in 1784. He added a codicil to this will at St. Louis, dated May 17, 1786, in which he reaffirms his first will, emancipates his negro woman Francoise, gives one hundred dollars to the poor of St. Louis, and appoints John B. Sarpy his executor.

He died unmarried at St. Louis, on Jan. 20, 1787, aged sixty-one years. It does not appear that he practiced here.

I really think if you have early roots in St. Louis that you would benefit from looking over my site, Early St. Louis. It is a compilation of information I've gathered over the last 20 years and is not a tree but a data base of material.

One of the most recent postings was a photo of the new monument at Calvary honoring the early founders. You can see that at the What's New tab.
