It seems unfair that I’ve Maryland out of this series of blog posts covering the Roane family exodus from Virginia to points (mostly) north in the USA. The number leaving for Maryland was so great that I would have been writing about it for days. Literally hundreds arrived in Maryland from 1880 to 1930. Not that it should come as ay surprise…but Baltimore was the top Maryland destination.
Below are some interesting smaller migrations to points further north…and west.
Family migration patterns: Roane migration to Connecticut & Massachusetts
Thomas Roane (1865-?), son of Jacob Roane (1832-?) and wife Fanny of Charles City, VA, was resident in Hartford, Connecticut at the time of his marriage in 1889. This move established the Roanes in Connecticut.
Thomas Roane (1877-?), son of Arthur Roane (1853-) and wife Mary of King William County, VA, moved to Boston around 1920 (census) with his family. This move established the Roanes in MA.
Family migration patterns: Roane migration to Arkansas
Katie (1825-?), widow of Daniel Roane of Henrico County, moved with their children to Philips County, Arkansas around 1880 (Census). As far as I can tell, this established the Roanes in Arkansas.
The next couple of posts will be the last posts in this series. They will cover the Josey and Matthews/Mathis families move to Washington D.C.
