Arrival at Roanoke was actually fine for a while with supplies. They brought 117 people aboard on the boat to Roanoke. The island Roanoke was a very deserted island.
They started to settle in the island building island and studied the stuff they never seen. While they were doing all that they started running low on supplies. John White sailed with some men to get some supplies for the island Roanoke.
While John White was gone I believe that a group of Indians came to attack maybe steal some of them. The reason there was Croaton was wrote on the tree, they were about to head to Croanton then the indians attacked them whie they were getting ready to leave.
