Hi Charlene,
I descend from Levi D. (My mother was a Boles) I have accumulated quite a bit of information from cousins on Roland's descendents, but have not yet found anything on Roland's parents. Do you actually have verification that he was from Stokes Co, NC or just NC? Roland and Oney were in Jackson Co, TN in 1820 according to the TN census.
I'd be glad to share what I know.
