Even though my opinion really doesnt matter i think that the lost colony went with the Native Americans and the reaso the colonists could not find them is because Native Americans are nomads and move aroun and i think that they followed diffferent rivers that led throughout Norh Carolina.

They joined up with the Native Americans

Thanks, Chuck. I'm assuming you are responding to the earlier question about what happened to the colonists at the "Lost Colony" of Roanoke Island.

That they joined the Native Americans is one theory out there. There are other theories as well.

Thanks for posting your thoughts!

I am trying to learn more of the practice of and the reason for recorded brands and flesh marks. The court records from colonial period indicate that free people with register flesh marks, using specific terms such as swallow fork, upper keel, under keel, corupp, crop to identifify both free adults and children.

The lost colony was the first English colony in north america and was only inhabited for two to three years. When john white,the governor of the colony went back to England to get supplies,the Spanish armada attacked England and Elizabeth I demanded that no ships leave England so John White had to stay for two years returning to the colony almost two years later. Upon arriving at the colony he discovered the colonists were gone!! What happened two them is still a mystery 400 years later do u know what happened to them?
