"6. The evidence for 11 John, 12 Israel, and 13 Edward Roberson's connection to 1 Nicholas Robertson is circumstantial, and it is based on the references I have cited here. The connection is tentative. One might add, however, that the Marks will names John, Israel, and Edward Marks as Mathew Marks' sons and that they appear to have been the namesakes of 11 John, 12 Israel, and 13 Edward Roberson."
