Searching for information on THOMAS ROAN who married NANCY PHELPS 11/14/1782 in Caswell Co., NC. He died 11/23/1845 in Yanceville, NC. He was born in King and Queen Co., VA., 1/10/1761 and served in Captain William Harden's North Carolina Company in the Revolutionary War. Thomas and Nancy were my husband's ggg-grandparents. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Connie Roan

I have numerous letters written to and from my ggg grandfather Paul Haralson who lived in Caswell County in the early 1800's. I recalled the name Roan and searched the letters. There are several mentions of a Dr. Roan and wife between April,1839 and March,1843. First names of the Roans were not mentioned but he mentions the couple joining the Presbyterians in Feb,1843 and Dr. Roan being sick in March,1843. If you think this may be your man I can e-mail you transcripts of these letters.

Mr. Booker, It seems I have stumbled onto your tidbit of info referencing Dr. Roan. I am interested in obtaining the transcripts, if this still possible. Thank you! I am a Roan/Zinsitz granddaughter.

Mr. Booker, I have recently started researching Dr. Nathaniel M. Roan of Caswell County. He and his wife Mary were members of the Yanceyville Presbytarian Church where they are buried. I believe he was the Slave Owner of my Great Great Grandmother, Eliza Roan. I am searching for documentation that will confirm this.

Please e-mail me directly at with any information that you may have.

Thank You

I am interested in Paul Haralson who lived in Caswell County. My maiden name is spelled Harrison. Just wondering if there is a connection?

Hello Janie,

I have traced a number of my Haralsons from Virginia and Caswell, NC. There are several spelling variations including Harrelson, Harralson but I never found a Harrison connected to my lines. If you have other names from Caswell maybe I can connect.
