Mary: Per my information, Dan Roan was one of eight children who lived to be adults. Two of his three brothers wer Baptist preachers-James E. and William. A family bible in the possession of Eula Ryan (Mrs. B. G. Sr of Decatur AL ) lists the births and deaths of Dan's Siblings. This information is from a book " Our Crawford Cousins the Past 250 Years" by William E. Rasco. I may have more information on the Roan Family but can"t put my hands on it presently. I know a lady in Decatur has written some books on the family but I don't have her name at present. If I can locate additional information I will forward it to you. Dan Roan married My GG father's sister, Elizabeth Crawford in 1885. Hope this helps.
