For those of you who are familiar with Jefferson Selden's book "Charles Roane the Immigrant" it has come to my attention that his dates for this generation differ slighty from the Bible. This is from a bible in my possession. I am decended from James A. Roane from two of his children, Richard Henry Roane and Lucy Clayton Roane. The Bible is very legible except where part of the page has been deliberately torn off - only one visible date (marked) is questionable.
