Hello! My family also descends from Samuel Calhoun Roane but I have his wife's name as Maria Embree. According to a book called "Pioneers and Makers of Arkansas. Little Rock, AR: Clearfield Press, 1908. It mentions that he married a Maria Embree on February 20, 1825,in Vaugine township, Arkansas County, AR.
on Page 93 "Sam C. Roane and wife Maria, had nine children: one son Andrew, died in infancy; two other sons, John Jordan and Samuel Calhoun,grew to manhood. The six daughters married as follows: Juliet to Colonel M. L. Bell, Fannie to Flowers McGregor, Hennieto L. H. Oliver, Mary to Mr. Dorris, Johanna to CaptainChalmers, and Ida to Captain John S. Bell."
My family descends through Juliet Roane and Colonel M. L. Bell.Would love to correspond with any and all in regards to this family.I even have a picture of Sam!
