I would like to be in touch with any descendants of Thomas Jefferson Roane. He was my ggg grandfather.
Thomas Jefferson Roane, born March 20, 1801 in Rockingham County, NC. He married Mary Grant (born March 10, 1803) in Rockingham County July 29, 1824 and on Dec. 22, 1830 they moved to Macon County NC where he died at his residence on Cartoogechaye Creek May 30, 1860. Thomas Jefferson Roane and wife Mary Grant Roane are buried in Old Presbyterian Cemetery at Franklin, NC.

They had 11 children:

1. William Hern Roane, b. Oct. 12, 1825; d. Feb. 29, 1880. Lived in Macon County. (Buried in Maidenís Chapel Cemetery,).

2. James Milton Roane. B. Dec. 11, 1826; d. Mar. 9, 1896. Lived on a farm north of Franklin. Buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery.

3. John Russell Roane. B. Jan. 23, 1828; d. Oct. 26, 1864. Lived in Macon County. Captured by the Union Army during Civil War. Died in Union Army prison camp near Chicago, IL.

9. Patrick Hern Roane. B. Aug. 23, 1840.

10. Edward Roane

11. Wilbur Fisk Roane, b. Nov. 30, 1843. Lived in Clayton, GA

Thomas Jefferson Roane was the son of Thomas Roane of Essex county, VA, who was the son of William Roane. I would especially like info on children #'s 8, 9 and 10, as they are ones I have nothing much about.

Looking forward ot hearing from Roane cousins! Are there any Roane reunions anywhere?
