Roane Family Genealogy Forum
I came across a pension for this family as follows: Capt. Christopher Roane an officer of the line in the Revolutionary War died without issue in 1795 leaving two brothers: William R. Roane and James E. Roane. William R. died, leaving one child: Dr. John Roane of Diwiddie Co VA. James E. Roane, wife Elizabeth Royal, died by 1833 leaving children: William R of Amherst VA, Rebecca Clark, Christopher E., Hannah S. Eppes, Sarah H. Roane, James E., and Elizabeth, who were the sole beneficiaries of the soldier's pension for Capt. Christopher Roane.
The above Hannah S. Eppes was the second wife of John Eppes of Prince George Co VA. The first wife was Lucy Poythress, daughter of Col. Peter Poythress and Elizabeth Bland. Lucy died in 1823 without issue. Hannah and John Eppes had John William, James Roane, and Elizabeth Frances. The last two children died young.
Hannah's brother William R. Roane of Amherst married Mary Burwell Smith, daughter of Burwell and Mary Jordan Smith of Nottoway Co VA
