The Roan family, as we know it, began with Ephraim and Elizabeth Roan of Griffin, Spalding County, Georgia. They had thirteen children, twelve of whom survived. There were six sons and six daughters and a set of twins.
The sons were:
Harrison and Morton (1889)
The daughters were:
Kittie Lou Jennie (1884)
The sons continued the proud name of Roan. The daughters, as they married, began the branches of our family tree, known as Coppedge, Thomas, Owens, Starr, and Harris.
Two sisters, Glennie and Edith, married two brothers, Lewis and Luther Starr. Kittie married Augustus Coppedge, Laura married Charles Thomas, Leila married James Owens and Eulalia married Walter Harris. They settled in all parts of the country and over many states.
From these strong branches of the tree, from these beginnings, came many wonderful families and even more sets of twins.
We celebrate the legacy and carry on the traditions.
