    The genealogy of the Sons of God \ A genealogia dos filhos de Deus

    in Religion

    What makes us children of God? Carnal genealogy? Nationality? Denominational faith? Let's talk about it?


    And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.
    And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, {or} to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people {shall be} my people, and thy God my God: {Intreat...: or, Be not against me}
    Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, {if ought} but death part thee and me.
    Ruth 1:15-17


    O que faz de nós filhos de Deus? Geneologia carnal? Nacionalidade? Fé denominacional? Vamos falar sobre isso?


    Por isso disse Noemi: Eis que voltou tua cunhada ao seu povo e aos seus deuses; volta tu também após tua cunhada.
    Disse, porém, Rute: Não me instes para que te abandone, e deixe de seguir-te; porque aonde quer que tu fores irei eu, e onde quer que pousares, ali pousarei eu; o teu povo é o meu povo, o teu Deus é o meu Deus;
    Onde quer que morreres morrerei eu, e ali serei sepultada. Faça-me assim o Senhor, e outro tanto, se outra coisa que não seja a morte me separar de ti. Rute 1:15-17

    The Buffalo Soldier - Thomas Elzey Polk, Sr. with Erwin Polk

    in History

    History has always been a favorite subject for Erwin, and his genealogy research made it possible for him to be interviewed live by Bryant Gumble on the Friday July 3, 1993 “Today Show.”  He has been featured in the Wilmington News Journal in 1996, regarding the history of his family and a memorial service for his great grandfather Thomas Elzey Polk Sr. a 9th Cavalry Regiment soldier (a Buffalo Soldier). He has been interviewed for another News Journal Article for the Sunday August 16, 2009 edition regarding a celebration of 200 years of Freedom in the United States by his Polk Ancestors. 


    Erwin Polk is constantly working on genealogy projects and in 1997 made a break through in discovering the ancestors of a childhood friend and neighbor also named Polk.  His findings which started from the name of a Northwestern Pennsylvania town and the name of one person has taken the research back to 1825 Delaware and numerous stories about the Underground Railroad and escapes from slavery. 


    Erwin’s genealogy and historical research projects have included many states such as: North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee, Texas, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Illinois.  He has also researched information from England, Trinidad, Canada, Grenada, Poland and Germany at various times. 


    Thomas Elzey Polk, Sr. the oldest son of Morris and Rebecca Black Polk, served in the United States 9th Cavalry Regiment Company C, from 1882 until 1892.  He was a Buffalo Soldier in the Indian Territory of the West and earned the rank of sergeant during both of his enlistments.  Thomas Polk earned a pension for his ten years of service in the Indian Territories.
