Recent studies and DNA tests have clarified some Polk relationships. Quoting from Bill Polk (linked below):

"William Polk who m. Margaret Taylor (this couple the greatgrandparents of President James Knox Polk) is NOT related to either Charles Polke, the Indian Trader of the Potomac, who m. Christiana Cartlidge, or to Robert Polk of Somerset Co., MD., whose wife was Magdalen (Tasker) Porter. And Robert Polk, aforementioned, is not related to Charles Polke, the Indian Trader. These are three distinct and separate Polk lines. The old Polk genealogies got it wrong, folks. "
