Mr. Walkingstick, since Virginia Dare is a well-known historical figure, I invite you to look her up and verify the few historical facts about her. She was the first English child born on the North American continent. Her mother was Eleanor White; her father was Ananias Dare. Her grandfather, John White, was Governor of the Roanoke Colony. When Gov. White returned to the colony site after a stay in England prolonged by the Spanish Armada and the alarm surrounding it, he found a deserted stokade, no bodies, and a single carved word on a post "CROATAN" which may have been a clue to why the colony was empty or where the missing colonists were to be found. They remained missing, hence the name "Lost Colony." Disagree as you will, but Virginia Dare was never found by the Jamestown colonists.
