The colonists were leaving England, they were now on the way to their new home also known as the Roanoke Island. They were talking about if they were ever in trouble, they would carve signs on a tree. There were about 113 on the ship going to Roanoke Island.
They had arrived at their new home, as they were coming they saw one of their men dead. They were wondering who had killed him, they were all sad. They dumped the body and completed settling in their new home.
After they were done settling, Native Americans attacked and killed some of them. The ones that survived left a name on a tree "Croatoan" to identify their killer for anyone that came to the land and were curious.
