I have begun researching for a friend her Roden ancestry. She had some information that got me started. Her grandfather was John Westley RODEN b. 1896 in Oklahoma. John was the son of Green B. RODEN b. 1850 and wife Lodena(?) SMITH(?). In 1880 Green was living in Crawford County, Arkansas. In 1900 he was located in Choctaw Indian Territory in what is know Oklahoma. In1910 he is in McCurtain County, OK. John Westley RODEN married Julia HIGGINS. Julia later married a HANEY. John and Julia had children David, Harvey and Dale. David must have came to Tennessee at one point, as he married a FIELDS who lived in Blount Co., TN. Any help appreciated.
