    Has anyone watched the recent TV series “America Unearthed”? Evidently quite a number of stones were found during the depression with writings on them referring to this event. The forensic geologist has examined these stones and definitely found that they definitely had signs of being centuries old. I am very much interested in this story.

    I am interested in the Indian tribe that lived there before Sir Walter Raleigh lead the English expedition to Roanoke Island. In my ancestry information it calls the lady: Native Indian Maiden Croatoan. I have not been able to locate any name for her. She married one of my ancestors — John Brooks. I am interested in trying to find out what her name is. She died in Kentucky so I no they moved from Roanoke.

      Hello Ben. I am also a descendant of John Brooks and the Indian Maiden. Doing some research on Roanoke and found your post. How do you know she died in Kentucky? I haven’t found that. Do you have any information on her children? I too am trying to find more info on her. Are you involved in the Lost Colony DNA project?

    We talked about this in my college history class. Our class guesses was that there was a

    Native American attack but also some of the students guessed that maybe the

    colonists sailed off to sea. The colonists were living a new lifestyle that was extremely

    different from their original England lifestyle. So we theorized that perhaps the colonists panicked about living alone in the colony and some tried to sail back to Europe or find a better place in Native America that would suit their old lifestyle more. Maybe they got caught in a storm and drowned which could explain why new settlers could not find any dead bodies in the vacant village, because all of the bodies are lost at sea. It is fascinating that our technology is advancing rapidly and that we might possibly be able to answer questions that we have long been trying to answer. Especially one that involves a huge part of American History.
