john white try's to figure out where the colonist went and where they are now.
Arrival at Roanoke
can i eat?
colony from august to October
Where did they go? Where is everyone?
After john white leaves...
This makes sense. think about it. if they left john white would have to know.
on April 26 1587 governor john white and 117 colonists were making a settlement on Roanoke island. at that time john white was married and had a child named elinor. she was married to a man named Ananias dare.
John white then leaves all of the colonists stranded on the island then came back on July 22 to find the island deserted. And with the words CROATOAN and CRO on a tree in Roanoke island. he thinks that the colonists are with a man named manteo.
I believe that the colonists left for croatoan island because the words were on a tree on Roanoke island also all of the colonists were gone and no body's were found. Also it would make sense for them to go because they would be safe there.
