John Roerty, son of Timothy and Jane (Scott) Roerty married Permelia Tracy in Garrard co., KY.1830 or so. They had four boys in the 1840 census. Then John died and permelia remarried to John Tercy. They went to Indiana where he had a woolen clothing Mfg. co. near Indianapolis. I found one of the Roerty sons, Joseph, in Bartholomew co.,INbut he spelled the name Roarty. Now I have found another one, John in another county. He also spelled the name Roarty. He married Mary Fanning.
