117 people arrived at Roanoke among those people was John White with his daughter expecting a baby with her husband. John White wanted to establish another colony close to Chesapeake Bay. When they got to the island it was deserted and they found bones of only one man.
Less than a month later John White's daughter she gave birth, this was the first child born in the Americas. The colonist have some problems with the Natives and just couldn't get along with them. The colonists figured out that they were not that well perpared to set up a colony.
I believe that the colonists moved to Croatoan Island because there wrote the word Croatoan on a tree but did not leave a cross which means that the were not in danger. They trusted a man named Manteo and had a fest with him John Trusted Manteo because he was on his maps.
