In Reply to: MARTHA ROANE- WYTHE CO. VA by David Masters of 402

There is no Roane Co. in NC - it is ROWAN. There IS a Roane Co. in West VA. They have an Historical Society listed, P.O. Box 161, Spencer WV 25276. We get frequent postings and mail here in TN that are actually meant to go to WV. Try posting to the WV site and see what happens. The surname ROANE for which our Roane Co. was named, is the Governor in office at the time of our recognition by the state Legislation in 1801 - Archibald Roane. He is interred in a Concord, Knox Co., TN Cemetery.
