DAVID Doak (ii) He was married in 1773 to Mary Hanna, an older sister of Margaret, who would marry his brother Alexander. Their mother, Martha, was "reputed" to have been née Doak - it is an intriguing puzzle as to whether she was a daughter of John Doak of North Carolina, which seems more likely, or of David (i). Two of David (ii)'s sons married the Thompson sisters, Lydia and Rachel. John spent some time in Campbell County, Tennessee, before moving on to Pike County, Missouri and then to Pike County, Illinois. In 1850, John's age is given on the census as 69. Robert, however, died in Tazewell County, Virginia, in 1818 and his widow Rachel appears on the 1820 census as a head of household with children..
