I identify with your problem, Kay. It's not easy to disprove a marriage or other family connection that has been reported in many books and the majority of genealogies for the last 50 years or more. I ran into this with a different Rockbridge family, and it wasn't until after a tombstone and two wills turned up that it was more or less proven who married whom. But, alas, even then, there were some hard-heads who refused to accept the new discoveries and gave as their reasons the many books written which declared "the Real Truth".
I am NOT saying this is the case with Robert Poage and who he married --frankly, I have no idea-- but I am saying that citing any number of books does not prove anything. Without sources, how can we rate the value of the data?
Descendant of John Poage and Jane Beggs
