Did the Croatoan Tribe Take the Lost Colonists of Norfolk? 

Map of Croatoan IslandThe Roanoke Mystery has baffled everyone who attempts to learn what happened to its residents. The immigrants came from Plymouth, England and vanished in July of 1687 and the only clue was word "Croatoan" scratched on a post which had enclosed the settlement. The first child born in America of English descent was a girl named Virginia Dare. Born on August 18, 1587, Virginia was one of the members of the Lost Colony. She was discovered missing by her grandfather John White, who was one of the original colonists who later returned to England for supplies. A clue, Croatoan Island (now Hatteras Island) is situated on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Croatan lived in current Dare County, an area encompassing the Alligator River, Croatan Sound, Roanoke Island, and parts of the Outer Banks, including Hatteras Island. They are extinct as a tribe. The Roanoke territory also extended to the mainland, where they had their chief town on the western shore of Croatan Sound.
