I am looking for Samuel Roe born in Louisianna in 1852 however on one census he lists his birth-place as Missouri. Samuel Roe's mother was Margaret (Ford) McDonald. She married John McDonald and had several children. She is listed in a book "The Founding of St Paul, Minn." and it states she had a child (Sam Roe) from a previous marriage. It appears that she met John McDonald in New Orleans and they moved to Hudson Wisconsin and then to ST. Paul. Sam Roe raised his family in Hudson Wisconsin.
